Very cool. Right down to the classic outboard and faux wood rudder.

Now that I think about it, I see a lot more creativity of this sort among the daysailers than the keelboats. You get the occasional Jolly Roger, but nothing like these offerings.
The key to inner peace is to admit you have a problem and leave it at that.

Indeed.

Keelboaters and the SA nut crowd are too serious. They have no concept of fun on the water with family.

I love the creativity of Mac owners. AND.....they seem to use their boats more and have more fun.

Absolutely. Like my detachable swim deck. More roomy than anything I have seen on any sailboat at our marina.

A “Woody”, a “Pirate Ship” and a great looking swim deck!
