New Site - Sailcraftdata

Hi there,

I've created a new website called Find information on over 7000 sailboats - SailCraft
It's like sailboatdata.com only updated to work on mobile devices like iPhones, and iPads.

I'd love it if you took a look and made some suggestions.

Thanks!

Re: New Site - Sailcraftdata

I would think that the main reasons for a new online database on sailboat data
Would be more accuracy and additional information than existing databases.
So I looked at the only sailboat I have decent experience with the Pearson 28 and I found your data suspect.
The first edition of this boat as stated by Pearson was: LOA 28, DWL 24, DRAFT 5'. This boat had the galley on the starboard side and a quarter berth on the port side.
The second edition of 3/76 removed the quarter berth and put the stove on the port side and was: LOA 28, DWL 24, DRAFT 4'6".
The third iteration retained the same cabin configuration but had LOA 28, DWL 24 and DRAFT 5'.
Now my boat is hull #96 made in 3/76. Based on the above it seems to have the hull fro. The first edition and deck and cabin from the second edition.
All were listed at 7850 displacement and 3530 ballast and all had the dame rid dimensions.
I think it may not be worth your time to sort through these inaccuracies since the company is defunct and there appears there is not an official library on this boat. But one wonders if any of the information on this new site is accurate and therefore useful in comparing various boats.
John

Re: New Site - Sailcraftdata

Hey John,

Your right. In fact most of the data was sourced by scouring the internet.
I'd like to make it more like a wiki, so that people like you with extensive experience and knowledge about certain boats could update the pages they think aren't accurate.

Cool!

The C&C 35/3 also came in a centerboard version. Yanmar 3GM30F was standard. 20 gallons fuel, 40 water
