Your boat is very beautiful. Especially the rig.
There seems to be a lot of new interest in J-style boats recently, which should allow for a lot of traffic sent your way.
Cheers mate, and keep up the good work.
Votre bateau est très beau.
Particulièrement l’installation. Il semble y avoir beaucoup de nouvel intérêt pour les bateaux de J-modèle récemment, qui devraient tenir compte de beaucoup de trafic envoyé votre manière. Les acclamations joignent, et maintiennent le bon travail.
