Thought about selling her a few years ago, but I thought I would miss her too much. More fun with two, but can be single-handed in all but the highest winds, if you have a good sail selection.

It appears that the last post here is about 11 years old. I'm buying a 1985 spindrift and was wondering if you guys wouldn't mind sharing some of the modifications you made to make stepping the mast easier. Thanks

We lived aboard full time for 8 years and part time for 8 more. She is a fast passage maker and a comfortable boat to live aboard. She has served us well cruising from Nashville to the Gulf of Mexico, the US east coast, Bahamas, and as far as Columbia. Great storage, fast, strong, and beautiful.

A nice, easily trailerable pocket cruiser. Easy to handle and sail. Weakness: Cast iron keel not firmly placed into trunck (keel slop). Leeward helm resolved only by moving mast aft (1 in), raking aft, and enlarging roach on main.
Wow! I had awful lee helm, The Montego is my first boat. I had sailed three times to get my ASA101, and never seen the boat rigged, bought on trailer. My lee helm was resolved with good halyard tension on both main and genoa, and looser sail trim. She does not like the jib oversheeted. There is a Montego group on yahoo, a lot of great info there for new sailors like me.

High quality finishing, I like the layout with the table and seats on one side. Wish it had a quarter birth. Cockpit is very dry without needing a dodger. Strong fiberglass hull and good footing on the decks. Two, small opening port holes for ventilation need a solar powered vent.

Nicely proportioned; wide side decks and large foredeck. Rod rigging, large sailplane and light displacement makes this fast in all wind conditions.

I hope some O33 owners are still reviewing this page. This seems to be the closest thing to an Owners-website out there. I am looking to buy an Offshore 33 and would like to know if any of you have one for sale. I am in NC. Please email me back if so; I'd like to take a look at it. Thanks jonl355@yahoo.com

The Bristol 27 is a small cruiser that is fun to sail. As described, the B27 will heel a moderate amount before digging in. This initial heeling is due to the narrow hull and slack turn at the bilge. This feature also gives the boat an easy ride in rough conditions. The construction is robust. Everything is accessible (well, not the motor). For example, the chain plates are mounted to very strong fiberglass knees that are within the cabin lockers. There are three versions of the B27: The Weekender has a larger cockpit, with a corresponding smaller cabin. The Dinette version has a wrap around dinette to port with the galley opposite. The Cruising configuration has the traditional opposing settees port and starboard, and the galley to port under the companionway. Some B27 came with outboard motors mounted in the lazerette, and others, the reliable Atomic 4 gas engine. The Bristol 27 has very similar design characteristics as the Pearson Triton (another Carl Alberg design) , which suggests a cruising capability. http://i45.photobucket.com/albums/f99/barquito_photos/Cirque/039.jpg
