Re: Is this an Eventide?

Given the shape of the transom + the fact that she appears to have a double chine & a small aft cabin, I would say no.

However, there are other members on here who will be able to judge this far better than I can.

Re: YMS Standing Rigging

I thought that was to do with the VAT rather than seaworthyness? :lol:
