Default Is 38' a small boat..

Was just reviewing the line up in the Powerboat magazine the other day and it seems that more and more boat manufacturers are building bigger boats and dropping the smaller ones from production..

Just curious how big you can build an "offshore" boat before it becomes a cruiser or high performance yacht...

I can still fit four chicks on my 37' boat's sunpad. While it may be a bit tighter quarters, I think thats a little better because they are all a bit closer and kinda touching and stuff.

Hmmmmm

Seems strange....with hardware like that on the back,
that none of the guys are even paying attention.

Is it the love seat thing?

Second from the right on the sunpad.

Is that a guy in a thong? That's just not right!

Maybe he is a Euro. The crew of a cruise ship we were on last winter were sporting the same thing. I was out on the deck enjoying a cigar when these three guys climbed out of the crew-only hot tub. Ruined the whole experience to see these dudes in the banana hammocks with their cheeks sticking out.

These are both CHEROKEE 60's. They have twin 1080's with arnesons. Fairly common today, but something like this for the late 80's, early 90's was unreal. There were a pair of these in Marbella Spain, where I worked, and when these bad boys were on the move it got everyone's attention.

E.S.

I remember back in the early 80's,a 30 - 35 footer meant that you
had arrived. Now at that size you just get lost in the crowd.
