What is the vertical clearance on the 54 ?
And restart production of the Nordhavn 46 or 47.

That's like people complaining of rough seas for a sea trial. Key word is "trial" and we want to know what it will do in rough seas. If we don't have them, we'll make them ourselves and all those who will potentially yell about wakes should do a wake trial because sometime in one's ownership you'll get waked just like in the videos shown here.

Likewise, I've learned that its good to do your survey when it's raining out. The harder the better. It'll help you find leaks!

Even the lock operator could see you without looking over the edge.
Great boat.
Soooo, who crawls up the mast rigging and stands in the crow's nest?
