The heavy black pipes you see below sticking up are an idea I got from Ed & Ruby Roote, who built the first 50′ OTTER. The idea is the pipe braces the deck, but also, the mast is stepped to the keel through the pipe. It makes a hell of a mast step!
I’m of course not impartial but I think this is one sleek boat!
