Our 42 Navigator is a dream boat for us! Although, if someone else was footing the bill, a 55 Fleming would not be refused!

I've liked y'all's boat for a while. You or Tom need to post more pictures of it.

Walt: You're the only guy I know that ''went back''. I think of all the old vehicles I once had and would enjoy the romance of having one again, but I never came across a single one that was "the one". I'm still looking for it. Looking at the photos though.....yeah, I can see why you might go back to that combo of space and features. I was astounded to learn you had no lower helm, by the way.

Both of these fine ships definitely qualify for the 'dreamboat' title.

Definitely an interesting idea. Not so sure about the styling, though. I'd have a hard time giving her a name that wasnt something like 'Chunky' or 'Lumpy.'

EDIT: Wait! I know what it reminds me of! ... Stimpy!

NO, the flat rack means the boat is not secure from crew during its voyage, Stuff Happens!

For 2 to max. 4 folks for just months of touring all that volume is a waste .

To fit in a box with only the PH needing to lower is far easier to design.

My dream boat would be a custom

Since money is no object, and assuming my current cruising desires eg unchanged due to suddenly winning the lottery without buying a ticket, I would have a custom boat built. I think it would be a cross between a KK52 and a Selene 54. Of course their are a number of similar boats which have been mentioned. If I were to be given a new one of any one of them I would be in heaven!

You know, Larry! I'm the only one I know that went back, too!
You learn from past experience. BTW No down helm means a dinette is now available and is used almost daily.

Bermuda is out in the ocean!!!!

I would look at the Euro boats rated for ocean service.

I have to admit that I love Bermuda! There is nothing like getting there in your own boat. If I were to want to travel great distances across oceans, I'd rather sail. That is one place a sailboat is my preference. As we are parting ways with our sailboat the same boat we sailed to Bermuda three times, for a decidedly non ocean crossing boat, I guess we will resort to flying there. That isn't all bad either!

Delphin, Torsk or any of the Orca-class Romsdal trawlers. I fell in love with Torsk in '70 or '71 when I saw her in Long Beach.

IMHO, today, Delphin appears to be the finest example.

I really do love Bermuda. Of course it is changing, but there is still some of the lovely colonial Bermuda in existence. It is fun and I want to go back...
I can't suggest that we go again soon as my poor wife and I were on our sailboat taking off personal effects today and she is sad... I will have to wait until she is in a better mood!
