hi, I just saw this listing regarding the Searaker 50' I worked at the shop in 1977 as a summer job between my Junior and Senior years at high school. One of my duties was to cut the fiber glass sheets for the layup on the hull. Three hulls had already been finished so I guess I was working on number four. We had a layup schedule taped to the wall in the back of the shop where they kept the different weights of fiberglass mounted above a long table. I don't recall a shop foreman overseeing the construction. Two people were the major players in running the shop. Harold the owner and a younger man (guessing he was in his early 40's) from the San Francisco area that was the technical yachtsman. Two guys handled the fiberglass work and I worked under them, Rick and Steve. Rick was the veteran fiberglass man. I am guessing he had resin in his veins. Rick took his fiberglass projects very seriously. Seeing the comment above about areas that should have been 7/8" only being 3/8" doesn't make sense to me. If I saw the name of the foreman maybe it would trigger a memory. I do know James Burba a Vietnam Vet, was in wood shop and fabricated a lot of teak interior work. Bob Bosco, was the re-touch and exterior finish guy originally from San Diego. I have one of the original sales brochure for the Searaker (6 pages, full color). That summer I also did work on prepping a hull for a boat in the 30' foot range. We received a rough gel-coated mold and I spent two weeks outdoors in the sun, block sanding a black mold. Not fun. Don't know whatever happened with that mold. We did layup a smaller boat, probably the 28'. It had a balsa wood core between the fiberglass layup. I know about the balsa core as I sliced my finger during the layup process. Dipping your lacerated finger in a five gallon bucket of acetone to remove the resin will create a long term memory. If you have follow up questions or comments please let me know. I can also scan and share the sales brochure is anyone is interested. here is my contact info. bmatthews59@gmail.com

I have owned an AMF 2100 for a year now and have sailed her only once. I am hoping that a forum member can help me with some configuration questions related to the mainsail sheet. A previous owner removed the barney post from the center of the cockpit and the configuration is now dependent upon a triangle from boom to each side of the transom.

The Ericson 32-3 was manufactured after 1984, as a redesign of the prior Ericson 32. It is slightly longer and wider, with a new underwater profile, and is constructed using the innovative Tri-axial Force Grid. Note that earlier models are referred to as Ericson 32-2, or Ericson 32-1. The Ericson 32-200 is an iteration subsequent to the 32-3, mostly for the purpose of moving the owner's cabin and head aft. The boat is an excellent all-around performer with exceptional interior design and execution. It sails equally under main or job alone. The fine entry and low initial stability make for ease to windward in a seaway. The boat does not surf. Reef main at 18 knots. A great deal of specific information is below at Thelonious Blog.

After haunting sailnet and some others I purchased a 1992 P23 named HotCha, in April of 2014. ZERO sailing experiance. Have had a great time fixing up and learning to sail on this little boat. I'm guessing others calling the boat "tender" are refering to the amount of heel, which I find to be a exhilarating. I fully believe for learing to sail on the small ponds and lakes of Iowa I could not of picked a better boat for the money. Precision has been a great company to deal with when I've needed parts and had stuipd questions.

I bought this fixer-upper in June, 2014. Fixed it up in Cobourg harbour for a few weeks while living on it... what a blast! The previous owner did not remove the lower shrouds while lowering the mast... These shrouds line up with the center-line of the mast , so as the mast is pivoted on the bolt, the shrouds try to hold the mast from leaning. Some twit reefed the mast down and damaged the mast... one mans blunder is another mans boon. Sailed it around 1000 Islands and camped out until Mid October. Now, I have a wonderful little pocket cruiser I can't wait to throw into the wind again. Can T22 outsail Carina: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TGqnJfcWAds sure it can! http://www.tanzer22.com/ Is no longer active. http://www.tanzer22.org/ http://zx81.isl.uiuc.edu/tanzer22.org/reviews/PS-Three22s_1981.html http://www.canadianyachting.ca/boat-reviews/one-design/2092-tanzer-22-boat-review-sail https://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/tanzer/conversations/messages for excellent sailors and advice

I have had my Georgian 23 for 4 years now. I purchased it in Godrich Ontario and trucked it down to Hamilton. "Sweet Georgia" (number "25" as indicated by the original main sail) has been a great boat to learn on. Are there any other 23's in the Hamilton or lake Ontario area? If so we should all go for a sail sometime this summer.
