Pick The Pretty Boat




Dear Readers,

I would like your assistance in selecting a sailboat. These three models (in ancient artifact form) are all up for consideration. Which one is just plain best-looking? Please vote. If you don't know the first thing about sailboats, so much the better. Sorry about the crummy photos-- these boats were built before they invented film.

I like the third (Rosebud) best, though there could be something about the bow end of the cabin that renders it uglier. (And, as my father says, "Life is too short to own an ugly boat.")

The Rosebud looks sturdier, appears to have more cabin space and has a certain charming sweetness about it, but I do prefer the long sweeping lines of no 2. (of course, this could be because of the angle of the pics.

What's the colour of the hull of 2, and what name does it go by?

(...a rose by any other name may not smell as sweet! :P)

I should clarify: #1 and #3 are photos of sisters to the actual boats under consideration (which are named, respectively, LADY SLIPPER and CAROLINA.) #2 is a photo of SANDRA LEE, the actual prospect. Katinka, she has a white hull and cream-colored deck. #1 is by far the sturdiest and most spacious, also probably the slowest. But we're just considering asthetics here, not anything practical.

You would present us with a boat named "Rosebud" and ask us merely to consider aesthetics?

Exactly,Hilllady! *grn*

Ok...well then I would pick 2... it seems a bit more light and elegant some how. Second pick would be no 3(AKA Rosebud/Carolina)

#2 looks the sleekest; #3 looks more comfy.

Given the different angles of the photos, it is hard to make a comparison. However, working from what we've been given, I'd go with 2, then 3, then 1.
