Power Boat Anarchy
"Hey a-hole, this is a sailing site, remember?" We know, we know but we have been getting some very interesting submissions for our PBA feature and we like to share ’em. Got a power boat that is different or cool? Send it in. Here’s a bit about today’s pb from designer Øystein Jaer:
I have recently designed a gentlemen’s launch, a small double ender motor launch intended for sailors. The boat is a 22 ft shore boat and has a large diesel engine,(can cruise at 20 kits). She is designed for sailors and indeed it seems it is the sailing inclined customers who have purchased the boat so far! The boat has a custom towing point in the stern bracket for towing regatta boats back and forth (like the 11 MOD and Melges , etc). Record so far is 6 Yngling’s on tow here in Oslo! The boat is basically one big floating reclined bar, lean back and pop the cooler lid and enjoy!
It would be very intriguing if SA could mention the boat, I guess not many motor boat stink pots ever grace the hallowed SA pages!
