Re: Eric Junior For Sale
- I don't actually know Westsails all that well, but when my Eric was
last hauled there was a Westsail and a Tahiti ketch in the yard at
the same time. My vote is still for the wooden Eric ;)
There's actually a very nice Westsail for sail here in Seattle,
beautiful woodwork (cutter rig with boomkin). There's another just
near it, but didn't catch my eye so much. I've never been inside a
Westsail and am very tempted to go "shopping" (pretend, of course)
just to see what she looks like when compared to Ronin.

- Bill Lapworth raised the freeboard a bit when he adapted Thistle to
fiberglass. That and the molded deck and house on the Westsail give Thistle
and Eric the edge in a beauty contest. <g> Westsails still look a lot better
than most of the boats you see on the water these days.

The problem with people who have no vices is that generally you can
be pretty sure they're going to have some pretty annoying virtues.
