    Thank you for the pictures, and keep them coming!
    No! I vote it back in.

    Agree. (Otherwise I won't get a look in here!)

    Other than my current boat, which will possibly become a classic, the only boat I have owned and would dare to propose was my Mystere, as in this crummy photo. The Mystere never became very well-known but a few hundred were built, originally by Langstone Marine, who were building Fishers at the time. The designer was Fred Parker and it resembled the Javelin but had a prettier stern. The interior had a different designer and was quite clever, though much of the sole was sloping. My next boat was a Sadler 29, and even her mother wouldn't describe her as pretty.

    Far away is near at hand in images of elsewhere

    I suspect just about all the boats at my harbour could in some way or other be described as "classics" Certainly sounds better than MAB's

    I don’t know if she is a classic but this is my Sailmaster 845 built in 1984

    This was mine,
    Javlin30,
    in the summer in front of the house with Gruinard Beach behind.
    Sadly Khamsin is now ashore in Ullapool until April 2109.
    All our boats are special to each of us, but I consider myself to be more fortunate than others

    So similar to the Javelin - which of course has a prettier stern...…
