Re: Kaufman 47 cutter, anyone have anything on these boats?
John Kretschmer, the sailing writer, sails a 1987 Kaufman 47 and loves it. (He wrote Used Boat Notebook, Flirting with Mermaids, At The Mercy of the Sea, etc.) He has done numerous trans-Atlantics, the Med, the Caribbean and many other trips with the boat. He also has a new book called Sailing a Serious Ocean that talks a lot about his boat. His web site is at yayablues-dot-com.
Yes I talked to him briefly via email beforehand and he provided me some good information.
Awesome! Keep us posted.
If you're still looking for more info, try John Kretschmer. He owns a Kaufman 47 and gives a brief write-up here
. He also has his phone/email on his website if you want to contact him directly.
Yea I had already read his book sailing a serious ocean, he has a chapter pretty much on that boat. It was a good read as well. Flirting with Mermaids is on my amazon wishlist haha! He's a good writer..
