NO sea legs here, a recent deep sea fishing trip put the end to that rumour... but then again the bottles of Rum we were drinking the night before might not have helped /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/crazy.gif
That's a classic! Absolutely Beautiful!
I have a friend who is into similar tastes. He has a 1957
20' varnished mahogany Chris Craft, which he tows with a
black and white 1957 Chevy Belair. Together, they look pretty cool!
My sea legs involve a 1979 52' Buddy Davis. It's mahogany too, but a bit too big to varnish! I think I killed a rain forest worth of sandpaper, the last time that I prepped it for painting! /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/shocked.gif Yearly varnishing is NOT an option at my age!
Been a live aboard twice. The first was a 63' Sparkman Stephens steel hull ketch built by DeVries Lench in the late 60's. Found her rotting in a boat yard in Ft Pierce Florida and spent two years making her seaworthy again. Then the current one is a 44' motor sailer with twin Perkins but we no longer live aboard.
Very nice Neal.
I own "Manhattan Express" 38 Cigarette hull #1 Took her down the East River to the Lady last Sunday. Over 1000 hours
but she's still going strong... (Motors rebuilt several times 650CI SM III's)
Glad to see this post. Bill Bayard and I have had some good exchanges about boats...mine is a 71 Hatteras 36 convertible I've restored. Look for an article in Soundings on her this fall; they just shot the photos. If she's on the cover you'll hear the howl of joy out on the west coast without a telephone. I'll try to put a picture up sometime.
