I was on the Discovery 50 at the London boat show in January - the only cat there, and there was ice on the decks. Brrr! Lovely boat though. Not sure about the full-width master cabin stretching across the bridgedeck, although I understand they also offered two forward cabins as an option. A 7' + width double berth just seemed like extravagance ;)

The master cabin. Note the three pillows. My other half wasn't impressed with my explanation about why there were three :D

Strange why women don't understand these things ;):D, mind you I have decided with age 1 is more than enough, although I lover her dearly. :)
Explanation now, 3 pillows, 1 for me, 1 for her and the 2 dogs share the middle one ::)

Maybe the wife would have warmed up a little faster to the 3 pillows if you'd mentioned that the third one could be used by the 21 yr old Argentinian Polo player who winked at her in the bar last night!!!::)

You're welcome.

You've got bigger fish to fry than worrying about links like this - back to the phone calls and emails for you. Best of luck with moving things forward.

Geriatric Rig? Bit of a strange marketing twist there!:eek::)

I've heard that many in mast furling systems howl like a banshee off the wind due to the size of the opening and the air passing inside. Anyone know if this is true?

That's my problem, I've been looking in the wrong place! :eek:

Beautiful boat, seems that the systems are realistic and well thought out. After all, I suspect that those who can afford to spend 3/4 of a million pounds on a boat will have attained a certain degree of maturity!

Yes it is true

I've heard many in-mast rigs howl. Often you can hear them from 100m away
