89 mid cabin reimagined

Post by mrrudely »

My brother and I purchased our mid cabin almost two years ago
It had been neglected for quite some time
We named it "Captain Jack" after our dad who never owned a boat but for reasons unknown occasionally wore a captains hat
(not sure why some photos are coming out sideways)

Lookin Good !

These Internationals can be easily updated and with their lines, style and features, can remain contemporary for decades

Can't say that about an old Sea Ray

They are not available commercially
I designed them and then had a hand in their fabrication
Le Corbusier was a rather famous swiss-french architect
I took cues from some of his furniture designs

Damn, once a few other guys dropped out I thought I was winning the mid cabin Olympics! That looks really nice. My wife would never give up the door but it really opens it up. I would do it in a second, I just need to get divorced first.

Game on, you motivated me for the winter now!
