Amazing. That was NOT cheap. Would love to see details of the mechanism.

Lots of these lifting keel / twin rudder setup can dry out without stabilizing poles.

well the twin rudders and keel are pretty cool, but what's really H O T is the flip up table in the galley. I have just added that to my must-do list. it's a great idea for us lover's of creature comforts and convenience.

it will be the perfect spot to stage the smoked oysters and wine just prior to bringing them to the cockpit near sunset.

I saw that too. This was a WELL loved boat. The 260 suffers for galley space. Its really not a galley. I was thinking about a fold down unit in front of the sink.

Yeah, that IS neat isn't it...make a good addition......

It's amazing what you can come up when staring at other people's boat pictures !!

I also like the extra level of hanging locker and the dividers I the main salon...man I could really fill that up with extraneous stuff:)
