    Here's the protocol... if it's different, disproportionate, neglected, abused, and otherwise...
    painful to look at... it's a ROGUE!

    The ROGUES thread is all in fun and this is our motto...

    I really like the Fisher, originally from Fairways Marine next to it. This is probably the 34-footer, but even the small 25´belongs to my favorites!

    Some might think she is a Rogue as well, but not in my eyes... :)

    A Rogue by Any Other Name

    You know, the kinda boats that hurt the eyes and offend your yachting sensibilities.
    Not always bad boats, but one look says - not for me.
    Anyway, that was the original criteria.
    Add yours here today. :p

    I originally spotted this at the Columbus Day Regatta in 2004. A few months later, I had the opportunity go onboard it at the Ft. Lauderdale Show. It was in the brokerage section at the end of the Ft. Lauderdale City Docks. This was a one-off, custom built Tempest. The captain gave me a few more details at the time, but I just can't remember past yesterday. This is very nice boat inside, but from the outside... sorry, it's a ROGUE!

    Some of our regulars will recognize this. It was docked at the Las Olas Marina for a couple of years, but I haven't seen it recently. At one time it was probably considered very vogue. But today... it's a rogue.

    If it reminds you of a Manta-Ray, it's because it should buried on the bottom...

    This outrigger should be renamed... "outcast".

    This Cape Scott trawler is kinda cute, but sort of looks like it's been chasing parked cars...

    It's probably sacriligous to include anything Bannenberg designed, but... what was he thinking? Christina has a beautiful interior, but with that deckhouse... she has the drag coefficient of a Kenworth.

    I've seen worse than the KingCat (as your other photo showed :eek: ). At least the King Cat did not try to look like a monohull in disguise. Mind you, still not a yacht I would want for myself, but I wouldn't kick it out of the marina.

    You're right Kelly. Credit should be given to KingCat for building something radically different. It is certainly one of the more memorable boats. The design had some merit, but it had some drawbacks too. Although it had a volumous interior, it was semi-void of exterior of deck space. Which begs the question... how are you suppose to hang a fender on this thing?

    The fenders were coming out of side pockets as an art of engineering, but probably very sensitive such. My concern is to move around on deck and to wash her down without falling overboard...?

    Perhaps there might be an appropriate time to load chain in to one of your neighbour's cannon? ;) Ah, perhaps a bit too harsh. :D


    Reality Check Edit.

    Right now I'd rather be aboard anything that floats and is seaworthy. Even if it is ugly it would be better than the landlocked schedule I'm keeping right now. Crazy as it sounds I'm feeling envious of this man right now.
