Default Russian Booty

Seems the Kruzenstern just finished a 14 mo around the world trip. Good
looking steel hull. Taken from the Germans at the end of WWII. Makes
gaz's boat look like a day sailor, but not as salty or graceful or as
fast as the Eagle.

Not as fast? I think the Kruzenstern has won the races
they've had against each other. Not that it matters so much
these days.

She is a beautiful vessel.

I can't help but point out the fiberglass lifeboat, though.
I guess they figured steel wasn't durable or reliable enough
