rcoles is on a distinguished road
Looking to sail her on Long Island Sound, NY. I just let go a Carter 33 (Belwood NY - Restoration and fine woodworking ) . I should not have departed from her. She sailed "solo" to the Azores and now is en route to the Med... Just a IOR boat - a bit too crazy for me growing older...
My real wish would be an OVNI or a TRSBAL... but again who would know that on this side of the pond. Plus, electrolysis in New York's marina... .. ..
The boat is in Annapolis. I thank Bob for inciting me in reducing the price since it is an obscure manufacturer.
A bit like a CS36 made in Canada. I look at one. Price was just about too high. But worse, the joinery was not up to my standard. And my best mate ( wink ) did not like the claustrophobic feeling of the peak cabin.
A Tartan 37 or a Ericson 38 or Bristol 35.5 (1982) would be my other options...
But again, not the same quality of construction.
