    A recent inquiry I received,..
    Sorry the PDF files of the attached article (3 parts) were too large to attach to the forum. I will have to figure out how to reference them? HELP?

    Doing a little research, it seems that article and the photos appeared in a magazine called " BlueWater Boats and Game Fishing"
    https://www.zinio.com/bluewater-boats-sportsfishing-m7122


    Has anyone heard of that mag, or know where it is published, or have a direct contact for them?

    Ah, I just found them,...an Aussi publication

    Many of us dream of travelling the world, chasing the biggest marlin at the world’s best hotspots.

    Norwegian businessman Morten Ruud made that dream a reality, designing and building a unique sailing gameboat to enable it. Having now completed stage one of his round-the-world odyssey, Morten shares the creation of his dream and the first wave of his remarkable big fish successes.

    The links to that article above about Offshore Hunter were in a PDF format that was too large to attach to this forum,....So if you wish to read the article right now you can find the PDF's attached HERE

    I have written several messages to the editor of that BlueWater magazine, and he plans to do a second article on that vessel. AND he is interested in discussing some of my concepts after he finishes a trip to visit an old fishing friend in Tahiti. Looking forward to that.

    Probably never will. I hosted one of their writers on a ten day trip to Venezuela a number of years ago. He fished on four of the very best sportfishing boats - caught nearly a ton of white and blue marlin. All he did was complain. Supposedly he wrote the article about the trip, but never saw it in print.

    I really like Chris White's design - esp putting the wheel forward of the pilot house. It's too hard to see where you're going when you're in an enclosed cabin. I'm not so crazy about the foil.
