Ron,
Is that a picture of your boat? Whoa! What kind of boat is that? One you built? Looking forward to talking boats with you! You bring the camp fire .... I'll bring the beer.

Hanse

I wish I could build a boat like that. It was a 41 foot Hanse chartered out of Sidney, BC. Beautiful sailboat with all the bells and whistles. we were the third trip out so it was like brand new. This year we have a 42 foot Beneteau ready to go on October 8 around the Gulf Islands.

I sailed for three weeks in the BVI on a wooden boat with the traditional wooden interior and I've had enough of the traditional dark wood interior. To each their own.

I couldn't agree more, Ron. I just love nice wood interiors. White is just too institutional looking for me. I don't mind colour at all, but at least a cream, light brown, orange tones, something warm. But like Hugh said, to each their own, it would certainly be boring if we all liked and had the same things.

The yacht we were on this spring was an older re purposed wood boat, with beautiful wood interiors. The Yacht - Alaska Yacht Cruises and Charters Aboard Alaskan Song - Crewed Yacht Charters in Alaska

No, it's not my boat. It's the one, that when it was moored near me, I aspired to have. It's a Jongert, made in the Netherlands. Didn't have a photo of the pilot house boat that I built and that photo showed what a wood finish looks like in comparison to a white interior. Part of the reason I built a pilot house boat, aside from being able to helm from the inside in the nasty North Pacific weather, was that the lounging and cooking areas are bright, even with the wood trim.

Actually I was surprised at how close the boat I built and this one were. From the teak and holly sole, to the single pedestal table , interior helm and galley area. Maybe it was a case of the grass is always greener....and I shouldn't have been so envious

And yes, even me, the wood lover will admit there can be a case of too much of a good thing. Friends had an Ocean 71. Lovely boat, but filled with dark wood and but with no pilot house and larger windows, it did feel like it was a case of too much wood.

I guess it's possible there are folks in line who are not on Escape Forum

Doesn't seem likely.

I agree with you, Greg: seeing the pics of the other trailers was very interesting, while we waited for Our build to commence. It helped to see how things look and figure out what to expect. Even the early (baby) pics, wch show basic construction. Never dull - at
least not to me!

They build a trailer a day. That is what Reace just told me. Most people are not on this forum and then few others post the photos. Looking forward to yours!
