Here is some basic information about my Seidelmann 30T.
As far as I know I am the third owner since 1986.
I purchased the boat in December 2003. I first launched it in May of
this year. She was originally named "On The Lam". I immediately
changed the name to Daydreams.
I like the boat very much, she is comfortable and handles well. She
heels quickly to 15-20 degrees but is then stable. Strong weather
helm begins to develop at about 16 kts of wind with full main and 135%
genoa; reefing the main is indicated. At winds of 10 kts the boat
sails herself at about 5.5 - 6.5 kts (depending upon how much you attend the
Significant problems I've found:
- headliner was falling down
- the bottom had many small blisters (pox) in the gel coat
- the chain plates and genoa tracks needed re-bedding
- the CDI furler had a broken upper pulley
All of he above have been repaired.
The boat is located on the Patapsco River 6 miles south of Baltimore.
I mostly cruise the upper Chesapeake Bay.
