I could easily imagine owning a boat like the Tartan offshore cruising ketch (http://www.vesselexport.com/SB2/1.JPG) but I have a really hard time believing that I'd consider it pretty.

How 'bout this one: http://www.vesselexport.com/sb2.html

And then there's this: http://ads.boatboss.com/13_Mobile/22615_MacGregor_26X_Motorsailer.html

I see those all over the place and there may be good reasons to own one (though I'm not sure what those reasons are) but they make me want to poke my eyes out.

...and I looked the the photos of Architeuthis and see your concern re hanging anything off the stern. What a beautiful wooden banner. Did you make it?

Where's the name come from? Giant Squid?

Yep, Architeuthis is the genus name of the giant squid. I'm a bit of a cephalopod fanatic.

That banner was on the boat when I got it but I did spend a great deal of time stripping it, sanding off all traces of the old name, creating a stencil, varnishing, painting on the new name, and varnishing more. And because the paint got damaged while removing the old hailing port, we repainted the whole transom while we were at it.
