    Yes, she is a lovely boat! Treasure her, especially after all the repairs and upgrades you have done!

    Because my browser allows it I clicked on "Search Google for Image". The answer was "Germany" - I guess AI has a way to go.

    A pretty boat in a lovely location.

    Cool Envy

    The owners of "Hunta-Cata-Benalina's" just WISH their RV's looked that good... and that they actually sailed that well, too.

    Great shot Bob, and in a great location. One of the things I've noticed over the years is that people never have pictures of their own full boat (especially under sail). I cruised with another guy for years and have lots of shots of his boat, but only one or two full length shots of my old E27.

    Still no pics of my E35 under sail, and only one at anchor up at Portland Is. Now that you've brought up the subject I'm going to have to heave some crew over the side in the dink this summer and not pick them back up until they've gotten some good shots of Hydro Therapy under sail.

    PS. If you want a great gift for a friend and happen to pass them on the water, take a good picture of their boat under sail and frame it for them.

    I sometimes envy the view that the "Hunta-Cata-Benalina's" get when I slip into the anchorage.

    I have a photo that is similar to Kevin's: my E34 on Jones Island in the San Juans.

    Like him, I have no picture of my boat under sail. A friend who is a photographer just got a picture-taking drone, and we are going to do something when the weather improves. I'll have to remember to give my genoa halyard an extra half-turn....

    I do have a couple. One taken by the other half from the dock and the other taken by the newspaper.

    Bob, don't tell me you've never been tempted to photoshop out that anchor chain.

    It has been done but I don't want to be seen as recklessly endangering a tanker.

    Photo "Under Sail"

    In July 2017, two buddies of mine and I departed Cleveland before sunset and motored the 11 hours across Lake Erie to a little town called Erieau, Ontario. We all three were single-handing our own boats - my 30+, a Pearson 28 and a 30' S2 Center Console. As you can probably notice, there was not a breath of wind and none came until after midnight. But, I knew that if I hoisted my sails, one of my buddies would get a couple photos. I had to pull everything tight to keep the sails from luffing. And this is how I have my only good picture of my boat "under sail."

    Cool Regarding "attractiveness"

    I spent Wednesday wandering thru the Seattle Boat Show, inside and on-water. For around 200K, I can buy a Ben/Jun. 34-size sailboat with an interior finished out in the Euro-version of Formica wood grain.... or maybe it was the "standard" interior on the Hanse. I have seen products from Ikea that look much better, and certainly no worse.
    OTOH, they do often give you TWO steering wheels!
    (You can never have too many of those, it seems....)

    Their sail handling systems were primitive compared to Ericson's as well.

    I did ask one of the brokers how the deck and hull were joined on the French-derived boats and he had no idea, but said it was Really Strong!


    Actually some of the high-end smaller power boats, like the ones from Finland, were quite drool-worthy.

    If you go, DO take the free tour around Lake Union in the electric Duffy launch. Lots of fun!

    What a lovely photograph. I think you should put it up for a caption competition for one of the "Inspirational" posters.

    My entry would be "Innovation - why bother, sails have been around for some time"
