Re: Ranger 37 - should I??

Great old race boat with decent accomodations. Very conservative by today's race standards. Won the SORC when it was new. Good looking boat. Tankage will be low for cruising. I could enjoy owning that boat. I say do it. Just sail with small lp headsails until you get comfortable with it. Don't listen to the people who will tell you that all IOR boats are monsters. They are not. If you limit your spin flying to winds under 15 knots until you get to know the boat you will be just fine. I don't consider 6' draft "deep" but I live on Puget Sound where draft is not an issue. Until you run aground.

How about posting a pic of the boat?
