Default ...... is so totally fantabulous

My next door neighbor has something like a 1980 Contessa-32' sailboat, made in England and it supposedly weighs in at 16,000 lbs with its' weighted keel. Its a beautiful dark blue hull with a white upper and all white sails. It has four stays, bow-stern-port-starboard ..... stays-all around going from hull to top of aluminum mast ..... and it steers with a tiller handle and NOT a steering wheel .... so it is good-to-go through those large North Sea swells off the island nation of Great Britain.

It swings from a mooring, close to Horse Island, out front here, awaiting the next big windy day here on Lake Winnipesaukee. It's a real looker and you've probably seen it out and about.

It is in beautiful condition ...... just a fantabulous big water sailboat!

Here's a video of a different similar sailboat ...... www.youtube.com/watch?v=0q4Y27JvbuA ..... ".... romping across the North Minch on her way from Stornoway to Stromness."
