  • The original quote is from Kenneth Grahame's Wind In the Willows: "There is nothing - absolutely nothing - half so much worth doing as simply messing about in boats."

Is it just me, or does Camper look very bow-heavy compared to the other boats, in this and the other VOR vids? All of the Open 70s have plenty of firehosing for the poor guys on deck, but that boat almost moves through the water as if it were a wave-piercing design -- just horrendous amounts of water on deck in not-so-big seas.
