Re: Production Boats and the Limits

Sorry meant to say Boats usually don't randomly sink, even in tremendous seas, I can find no objections to a stock-maybe with a few mods off shore, there are many problems with a really expensive boat 1) if its too much of net worth l may be too paranoid to leave the boat (perhaps others share this) 2) The comment on parts for a C35/6 are well placed, for example I have never met a person in the US who has heard of let alone seen a Koopmans, figuring out exactly what it is was hard, still not sure all the words are in dutch...... in the end I look at all the crap that are supposedly blue water.... and look at my and all the stuff the magazines say you need...... and well it seems like a lot of crap. There are some things I think are necessary, but they have lttle to do with the Hull (except substantial backing plates, cleats, ground tackle system, chainplates, most stuff can be changed out.
