I’ve got a bad case of bowsprit envy! While perusing the Craigslist I saw a fifty foot Bugeye going for $16.5K.
Now, I’ll be the first to acknowledge that I can’t really afford to cruise on a fifty-foot vessel no matter how much it’s a work of art and sexy as hell. Adding in the fact that the sparred length is a whopping 65′ and that’s just going to make haul-outs, marina visits, and incidental cruising expenses a lot more than I can afford.
But, still, the prod on “So It Goes” at two feet compared the the magnificent bowsprit on the Bugeye makes me feel just that little bit embarrassed.
So it goes…
