Yes, that actually does look much better. At least you get the feeling they can see to steer with those windows.

Well, I like the boat as the out side decks are protected, and looks to be good designed for the PNW as its well protect from the rain and wind. The Eagle sort of look like 9 months of the year during the winter with the canvas and tarps on. We usually keep the curtains closed all year around for privacy, holding in the heat in the winter and keep the bright sun light out in the summer.

I do like the photo shop picture better but the wantabe donít fit the sleek look/design. But Hey, I like blink, glitz and the unusually one.

So my only complaint I have is that your change altered the forward lines which to me, are terrible appealing. I would humbly suggest that you place the reverse rake pilothouse windows ATOP the existing cabin roof so that it sits above the wonderful forward bow lines. I think if you do that this boat will truly be just about perfect.

Any bow babes on the forward deck of this eye sore would have to have a death wish. What dummy would take several hundred sq/ft of clear deck space and completely waste it by sloping it so severely you can neither walk or lay on it. Then there is the 10 or so steps that make up the transom, for what? Designed to turn heads with little regard to practicality or common sense.... I concede if turning heads was the designers intent he succeeded.

I was under the impression there where 8 of these built for a fractional ownership fleet. Perhaps that was just the marketing fluff prior to the economy falling in the ditch.

They are sitting on the roof, for a better view. The more I look at it the more I like it, but it definatly a warm claimat boat as its not enclosed as mush as I thought. However, a roof/tarps over some of the holes would fix that.

Woody: I've been warned by Eric about further improvements to this boat, but your point is too powerful to ignore. Yes, I see what you mean.....a raised pilothouse version. You obviously have a keen eye for style.

Man Larry, some solar panels and a Mantus anchor and she's good to go.

Well, now the boat looks top-heavy and out of balance with the pilothouse. I think Healhustler's original window treatment looks world's better.

Larry,
Thank you. Despite Marin's detracting ( ) comments on this beautiful improvement, I find her utterly attractive at this point. Just wonderful. Part of me wants to suggest further improvements, of which several ideas I do have, but really, I would hate to complicate her simple exterior lines she currently displays to the world.

New Poster Boat

The only thing that would improve this piece of masterful design would be wings. Trust me I am a professional, he said.

Friends,
I have received quite a few comments that some of the membership are bothered by this potential new "poster boat" for TF because, despite her amazing beauty and simple exterior form that is so pleasing to the eye, she is, alas, outside the budget of many people due to her size. Requests were made for a more modest sized vessel that while on a smaller scale than our first example, would have equally appealing style and form. I have given much thought to this and submit this pleasing alternative beauty for your consideration and esteemed approval, should such approval be the pleasure of the general membership.

Wow!

You've really outdone yourself this time! I honestly can't think of how to improve she. Unless maybe reversing the windshield!

She appears to be sitting a little low in the water. Must have a full load of fuel and provisions for a long voyage.

Yes, I must agree. She is truly a special kind of beautiful indeed!

Everything about the boat says "rugged individualist". How do you enhance such a vessel? The only thing you can do is follow the lead of its handsome, muscular image.
