More friggin awesome sailing

Decided to pop in and have a look at "things" at TradewindsYC. It was kinda quiet. I suppose Ahab just cleansed it good after the latest boatshow. One thing was interesting though... this:
Uh, oh... a modern boat
This one's new to me; Not that I am surprised to find new stuff after being away almost since Christmas. It's not just new in SL. It is also new in RL. It is a very modern boat. Looks like a racer but it is big enough to provide that fabeled mega-trailer interior as well...

That's what we call a cruiser/racer. Many attempts have been made to fuse these two into one. Many of these attempts compromise too much and end up being neither. This here is probably one of the best blends available right now. It's gonna be interesting to see if it sticks, or if people deem it too lively for family-cruising.


  1. Is it only in SL that you can get a left handed winch like the one on the starboard cabin top?

  2. Hi Barubi! That's a very sailgeeky question, and I like you for asking it. It so happens that some of the elderly RL Solings has just that... left and right handed winches. I've seen it on a few cruisers too. Some ppl think it is easier to always run the sheet round the "outside". Others just like it for the strict symmetrics. Here - btw - the sheet goes on the inside.
