Greetings all,
It's been a while since I've posted anything here, so I'll re-introduce myself.
Mark Bertsche sailing P26 Trillium #1701 out of Port Henry, NY on beautiful Lake Champlain. After 6 years with my P26 I'm ready to move up. I've got my eye on a P33 '72, 15 hp Westerbeke, tired rigging (old Schaeffer furler), sound hull and deck that I can tell. I'll be retiring in 2 years and my intent is the ICW, keys Bahamas and back each year. I have a couple of questions for owners.
Is the P33 a fairly stiff sailor?
Is the 15hp Westerbeke sufficient for the 12,000lb displacement?
Will I be able to sail to wind, board up in most cases? I know I'll loose some leeway, but I'll be cruising by then.
Thanks in advance for any replies.
Mark
P26 Trillium #1701
