    Disco,

    You should have entered the catamaran in the Rogues thread.:D

    The Alfamarine disco is truly a monument to bad taste IMHO.

    The Grey Mist has again been purchased and is having the Fiberglass removed and the hull replated.

    The fiberglass has been removed and exposed massive damage to the hull. Over 1,000 sqft of plating has been replaced, hundreds of feet of stretchers and support were fabricated.

    Moral: NEVER cover a steal hull with fiberglass ... It only excellerates the corrosion.

    Here is a new conversion project that Icon yachts are taking on. It is an ice class supply vessel being converted into an explorer type . Apparently this vessel entered Icon's shed in July of this year and will be transformed into the below schematic, which shows a before and after scenario. The conversion design has been down by RWD and will feature a helipad and ample room for tender storage. A main pool and jacuzzi will be implemented onboard. Project Ragnar is LY3 classed with arctic explorer capabilities, full ice breaking functionality. With a range of around 6,000 nautical miles, this vessel will be able to take her owner far and wide.

    So much respect to any owner that builds (and then really uses) a yacht like that!

    If you have been interested in following the build process of "Ragnar". She is completed now and sailing. Here is a video showing her in her last stages at the yard before completion.

    Those that are, and those that are guilty of lying about it.

    I would be curious to know if Ragnar would be exceptionally uncomfortable in a powerful head sea. All the accommodations and the pilothouse are perched right over the bow, which is usually the worst place to be when weather is bad. Yes Ragnar is a big, powerful ship but I've been on a cruise ship that was pitching like a bucking bronco in bad weather so I assume the bow on Ragnar would be leaping up and down in a serious blow.

    Different design. She looks more like a North Sea tug with all that weight forward, meant to go straight in.

    love the look of Artic P expect all them satellite domes up the mast. :confused:
    Not only the looks, but also the windage, it sure doesn’t help maneuvering and air flow while cruising, or the lack off. :(

    Reminds me of those Russian "fishing trawlers" operating near, or on top of, our sub exercises.

    "Ragnar" seen arriving in Gibraltar. She has a serious business look about her but she looks good thanks to that serious conversion work she went through at Icon.

    Is it just me, or does Ragner sit a little nose-low?
