J/92 Heart of Gold

The J/92 Heart of Gold is named after the spaceship that Zaphod & Trillium stole in The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy.

Like it’s namesake it is also powered by The Infinite Improbability Drive ( well 9 hp Yanmar Diesel actually ).

The J/92 was introduced in 1992 and was one of the early “Sprit” boats that had a retractable bowsprit and flew an asymmetrical spinnaker.

I also know where my towel is.
