In 1976 Time/Life magazine published a series of hardcover books on sailing.
In the 'Cruising' book they pointed the perfect vessels for every purpose.
Dinky, daysailer, coastal cruiser, and far ranging sailboats.
Guess what 'their'  perfect 'Far ranging' vessel was?
Hint:  the photo below is from that book and  'Triad II' is in the background.
