ChuckPaine.com LLC is a new company which will focus upon putting small, very seaworthy sailboats into the hands of the next generation of nautical adventurers. We will emphasize small to midsize yachts because they enable aspiring voyagers to get out there before their geriatric years. Unlike my old company, now closed, we will leave motoryacht design to others—the world does not need more ways to use up its precious one-off gift of liquid energy. Corporations are not all faceless automatons running on autopilot. At least the small ones are steered, influenced, perhaps inspired by their leaders. Hence this Blog, in which Chuck Paine blurts out his personal take on subjects as varied as his yacht designs as works of art, his clients, his other life as an oil painter, and the state of the world in general. Don’t forget this is a blog, and it’s a lot more fun for others to read when people who read it (THIS MEANS YOU!) post your comments- positive or scathing- for all the world to see.
