Here we go again.
Let's not mix oranges with apples. How old are two of the boats shown in this thread? The first one is the one from Marin in the first post, and the second one, is the one from Kennedy? Are there any FG boats as old as these ones? If you guys come to my home town in Brazil, I can show you a wooden pier built in 1893. I can also show you "escunas", traditional boats from Bahia, built in the early 30's belonging to people who never had more than one single pair of shoes and who sails in them until today.
