No there's much more to it than that - the excitement of leaving harbour or anchorage and the pleasure of arriving at the next one. It's just the bits in between that can be cold wet and miserable.I've always thought of yachting as similar to campervanning, except being cold, wet and miserable as well as cramped and uncomfortable. ......
They all are Tiddles, marinas are full of toys, all theres as toys to play on. In fact in your average marina probably 95% of the boats are toys. It's why they're called Pleasure Craft.It’s a toy, not a boat to live on or a machine to race… stunning though.
Racing yachts are beautifully uncluttered, fold down racks and a single burner stove hanging over the toilet directly above the keel, tape handles to hang onto as there’s no floor… crude, but because of the speed you don’t have that long to put up with it.
I love boat fitouts, all the things beautifully fitted into small spaces, good inspiration for small home living. There’s a national trust house just south of Cambridge with a pantry like a yacht, drawers and cupboards floor to ceiling, one of my favourite rooms anywhere
well as you can see there its under full sail and doesnt appear to be jumping about. Besides the fact it isnt 'jumping about, on the smaller yachts Ive sailed on going below to make coffee, get some beers up and choccy biccys, I found it no problem to move about without being thrown around and such smaller 30-40' dont have the stability of a yacht such as that sizeBoats jump about & sailing boats lean over
Who said i didnt want to hear the opinions of others. I was just addressing the points made. Same as across the forum on any subject. Why constantly introduce negativity tiddlesDepends what you like.
Maybe if you don’t want to hear others opinions, the internet is not a place to be?
Yes In liked the steps as well and the seating with its three-dimensional curves and the table base – steamed I presume.They peeled a whole mahogany tree and used the veneers throughout. How they get the angles reducing to zero in the single piece seems like wizardry to me. Pretty sure the seats looked like stained oak, not walnut. Loved the curves seating and the formed steps.
Yes its very beautiful & the joinery is stunning, my point was that any boat even if it spends 99% of its time in a marina will one day get caught out in a squall & have to thrash to windward with the lee rail down, some owners like day sailing like this as well!As to lean, thats dependent on the point of sail. But as explained in the vid its a day sailer. For an experienced owner and his friends and no crew provision.
Not sure why out and about you'd want to reside below decks anyway the whole point is to be out sailing.
Point of the vid and me posting it was about the beautiful workmanship of the yacht itself and the craftsmanship of the cabins below. Both of which you would think would have gained attention on this a forum about craftsmanship and fine cabinetmaking.
