Friday Night Fights [Round 12]

Welcome back fight fans, to Sin City Nevada for another Jeet Kune Do edition of Friday Night Fights!  This week’s bout is an Ian Mcque inspired battle of the sky-boats, with control of international salvage rights on the line.   Without further preamble, let’s go to the tale of the tape.

Fighting out of the red corner, from beautiful Lagoa Santa, Brasil, it’s Felipe “O Touro” Avelar and his “Mestiço“.

And fighting out of the blue corner, from fascinating Taipei, Taiwan, it’s “Jackhammer” JPascal and his “Ramona“.

  1. Red corner’s a winner in my book. Main reasons are the color approach, general boat shape and that front crane with the ropes as icing on the cake. Nice one Keith.

  2. Both are great interpretations of the source materials (which I have loved for years). The Mestico has a more cohesive hull shape, but the technic elements really stand out and sort of break the spell. The Ramona sidesteps this better and the colours are a dream. Have to give this one to JP.

  3. The colors on the Mestiço are a bit too bleak, but the Ramona’s are a bit too bright (sand red would have been a better choice for the faded patchwork look, imo) and there’s too much going on with them on the roof and the crane. But overall I think more colors is the way to go where McQue-esque whimsicality is concerned and the shaping on the Ramona is just fantastic, so I’ll throw my vote to the blue corner.

  4. “Ramona” wins it for me. Love the color and stand out captain. It’s like a cross between boat and whale. Organically connects the sailer to the ocean. And I can’t help but think this is the acid trip or drunken dream of Quinn from “Jaws”.

  5. There are some really neat details and piece usage on the Ramona, such as the curved fences. But most of the shape doesn’t do it for me, whereas I’m quite fond of Mestiço’s design. All of the odds and ends hanging around that one seem just right. My vote is for Mestiço.
