    Rogues & Ugly Boats!

    Here's the protocol: if it's different, disproportionate, ill-designed and otherwise
    hard to look at... it's a ROGUE!

    The ROGUES thread is all in fun. 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 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.

    RM Elegant arrives in Ft. Lauderdale?

    Well, not really. This is a new Cruisers model spotted at FLIBS. You have to admit, it does have some RM Elegant lines. From the distance, I thought it was a new Sunseeker. As I came closer, I began thinking about the Rogues thread. :D (just kidding)

    I never met an expedition I didn't like. Re-thinking that statement now... ;)
