Hay actually makes the Mags in a soft and non-soft version. I just sat on a soft one yesterday. I didn't think it was too soft, but I just don't love the low sofa thing, in general. Otherwise, I'm a big fan of Hay.

As a repeat of my BoConcept post. I've sat in all of Hay's sofas, but I'm yet to find anything I would buy.

I'm going to try to see the Mags in person, but don't expect I'll buy one. Closest BoConcept store is 6 hours away - may swing by if I'm ever in DC.

Anyone here ever had a B&B Nena? Really like it but It's no longer being made.

Looking for suggestions on a light to hang over my dining room table. Currently Nelson Ball pendant is my front runner since I want something that doesn't look like gaudy piece of garbage. That said I'm not dialed into home stuff right now and open to suggestions.

He owns a Farr 40, so it pretty much looks like any other Farr 40 (although because he's an architect, his is the one that is all black, with no labeling at all, crewed by a bunch of people wearing mid-gray).

Some pretty great shots in this facebook album:

Little sad to only see 7 boats signed up for a North American Championship (and basically all boats that could be sailing in Chicago on any given weekend). I don't know much about the Farr 40 class, but I thought they generally had money to travel...last year was in CA and appears to have had 15 boats, only 8 of which show CA registrations.

Back when my dad did some Farr 40 sailing, it was like sailing NASCAR...Owner flies you down to Miami so you can race against the prince of Denmark, everybody's got a trailer full of parts and a mechanic that tweaks your boat every night, coach boats on the water, etc.

They probably switched to sprit boats. Who wants to fuck around with guys and poles anymore?

Hello everyone, I have stalked this thread for a long time know. Soon I hope to purchase a place in Philadelphia and would love to decorate with mid century furniture like whats shown in this thread. I was wondering if anyone was willing to share there opinion on this dining room table. https://philadelphia.craigslist.org/fuo/5774307750.html Looks like it could be a great deal but im nott 100% sure I like the look, probably because I can't picture the chairs I would use.

If you are allowed to hire up to 2 professionals and still sail in the "amateur" category...I don't think you really need to be that concerned about handling guys and poles.

Pretty sure there's an HRoi joke in there somewhere...

Not keen on it, personally, I think you can do better given the budget.

You guys should get a kick out of this. I have a guest post on my blog from Douglas Brooks, who apprenticed in wooden boat building in Japan and now is a professional boat builder.

Great article, SG, and thanks for sharing.

 

I showed it to my wife, who was both interested and surprised. She said that she hasn't seen a taraibune since she was a little child. Unfortunately, as Douglas notes, many of these skills are dying out in Japan as the old boat-builders retire or pass away while still working, as demand for traditionally-made boats has largely dwindled as people now mainly use fibreglass or aluminium boats.
