Boat Comparison Expertise

This week I went to my floating office on Wednesday instead of Thursday; blame it on a dentist appointment.

Instead of the fabulous hybrid sailboat (featured in my last post), I found this beauty parked across from me.

I don't care what you say, this boat has style...well, maybe more so 20 years ago. It's a classic that sails,  has a big anchor, and plenty or deck space for surfboards and a dinghy. Most of all....most of all, I like the way it stands out. Additionally, it makes you want to see the adventurous crew, which surely includes at least one gorgeous woman wearing shorts and a loose blouse.

Behind it, there is a no-name cat.

I bet it's better than it looks.
It's definitively worth way much more than the other boat, but somehow I'm not interested in the crew that I never saw by the way. To think of it, the gorgeous woman is probably on this boat.

The Rip Curl world surfing championship is taking place 500 m from here at the Supertubos beach, and I'm too busy translating to have a look.


  1. No doubt I'm digging that first cruiser (steel?). Ya gotta have style! For some reason I don't like cats, not that I've ever been on one. But If a loose blouse invited me aboard........ !!

    1. The cat vs monohull dilema. It's like choosing between a dog or a cat as a pet. But anybody prone to sea sickness or attached to a loose blouse suffering from that malaise should get a cat - if you can afford two hulls and the marina costs, of course.

  2. Boaters love taking a gander at photos of pontoons and their parts-the more, the better. Consider the sorts of photographs you like taking a gander at. recreational products

  3. You completed a few fine points there. I did a search on the subject and found nearly all persons will go along with with your blog. plumbing

  4. If you want to build a brand, then the cost per click will not be online marketing solutions. Instead of the online brand, you will go to a CPM campaign, is a straight line costs. Lead generation

  5. The world of business is ever-evolving, with new players (and competitors) coming in with their innovative and creative methods. SEO Limburg

  6. Your web designer will ask you about this facet of your web site, but it is good to think about this on your own before you take that step. As a rule, the more pages a web site has, the higher the cost.
