Re: Standfast 36
Thanks guys. The one I have in mind is on the island and no teak deck. It sure would look good with one though with that flush deck.
I have always liked the look of those highly cambered flush decks from that era - Heath's varnished 'Morning Clouds', the 'America Janes' and others.
The names - PJ, Maas etc. speak for themselves re: quality.
The boat has a pretty low asking price with a near new diesel as well.
I'm mainly concerned that it might have a "North Sea" sized rig which would be less than ideal around here. I think it was pretty unsuccessful as a racer but the IOR was in such flux then that it may not mean that much - that often simply meant it was too conservative (read seaworthy) - plenty of S&S designs back then weren't very successful racers as well for that reason..
I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.
