Went to the Strictly Sail event at the Miami Boat Show over the weekend. There were some wonderful boats. It's easy to fantasise about Hylas, Oysters, Island Packets, the big Jenneaus, Bennies and Catalinas....and some of the catamarans which approximate huge water borne condos.
But I fell in love with the Bavaria 42. Brand spanking new and with a sail away price (for the boat show) of $221,000, this has to be the best value ever.
Now I have to spend time convincing myself that I don't need one.
It is a very good show (the available food though is bloody awful and hideously expensive) and the place to see all sorts of wonderful technology. I found the new tech energy generators to be quite special...as were the Rainman water recovery units (http://rainmandesal.com/index.html
Man...If only I had a lazy quarter of a million dollars gathering dust in a cupboard.......
