Eric:

Again, " beautiful boat!"* I love the color scheme.
I noticed in the "when you bought her photo" that you are using your chocks...

RE: Local color

Rocky,It's always nice to have someone admire one's boat * *...thank you. When new the stripes on Willards are always grey. Their marketing target must have been to ultra conservative.
Anybody here think I'm ultra conservative? Nobody better say yes. I'd like to paint the hull buff like the cabin sides but don't know if I'll get around to it. I've been inside a W40. Nothing very exciting but a good layout. I'd like to get a pretty one and repower it w 70 - 80 hp. The Nordhavn 46 is quite a bit bigger and w greater displacement and powered w 101hp. I like the shape of the W40 better than the 30 * *.. not as abrupt and full as the W30 (lower PC). Remember Rocky * * ...the CHB 34 is one of my favorites.
Walt,
Yes. I do use the chock when the cleat is inbd of the rail and the run of the line is not at a great angle. You see my line is almost straight. Actually it was the previous owner's tie.
I'm going out camping on the west coast with the skiff for a few days. * *Later

RE: Local color

Eric,
Thats nice of you to say, but I don't think there is much comparison between Willards and CHBs. They scream quality of build to me, and the rounded stern sets off the whole boat in my humble opinion, its always what catches my eye on these boats. I do agree with you about the design of the windows though, might have done that a tad different.
