- Dec 7, 2005Bruce,
Heresy, indeed ;^) I talked about our thorough search, but I could
have added more. At the time, I looked at every Bolger design I
could find. There were quite a few, and we did consider some of
them. I really like Bolger's approach. I really, really like the
magic that has resulted from some of his very innovative designs.
Turns out, in the almost 2 years since, I've continued to discover
new designs. In fact, there are a lot of Bolger designs I wasn't
aware of when we were picking. A Very Lot! Can't say if we'd have
picked one of them in preference to the [not a Bolger design], but
there certainly are a lot of great boats.
Perhaps if we heard a list of the requirements for this boat, Bruce
and some of the other experienced hands could better make
