Re: Kaufman 47 cutter, anyone have anything on these boats?

I have been looking at that boat, looks great, but needs some work. The instruments look old and the decks need to be finished. Those pathfinders have timing belts, and if they go cause real bad problems. I have not called, but I wonder if that is why it's not running. There is a 85HP marine Pathfinder on eBay for $4,500 that's almost new that looks like a good fit.

Awesome! Keep us posted.

If you're still looking for more info, try John Kretschmer. He owns a Kaufman 47 and gives a brief write-up here. He also has his phone/email on his website if you want to contact him directly.

Re: Kaufman 47 cutter, anyone have anything on these boats?

John Kretschmer, the sailing writer, sails a 1987 Kaufman 47 and loves it. (He wrote Used Boat Notebook, Flirting with Mermaids, At The Mercy of the Sea, etc.) He has done numerous trans-Atlantics, the Med, the Caribbean and many other trips with the boat. He also has a new book called Sailing a Serious Ocean that talks a lot about his boat. His web site is at yayablues-dot-com.

Yes I talked to him briefly via email beforehand and he provided me some good information.

Yea I had already read his book sailing a serious ocean, he has a chapter pretty much on that boat. It was a good read as well. Flirting with Mermaids is on my amazon wishlist haha! He's a good writer..

Re: Kaufman 47 cutter, anyone have anything on these boats?

I tried emailing Mike Kaufman from his website this morning, but haven't gotten anything back yet. I'll give it a few days and may try to ring the office. I just want to possibly get some sail information, maybe get a blueprint or something on the boat.

Yea man! She's looking pretty now, new seacocks, engine is installed, new shaft, new wheel, pedestal should be in the mail soon.. Redid the engine room and lazerette , changed valves on water tanks, refit the fuel tank lids and added mechanical level indicators.. A few other things, closed up some holes on the hull and added one for a transducer.. Cleaned up the deck partner and rebedded the aluminum ring that sits on deck where the mast goes through.. New portlights on the side.

Other little things, thanks for asking! Couldn't get her in the water last time I was home and I'm offshore now. But hoping in Dec she'll finally see water after being parched for almost a year!

Also, she's renamed now, Redemption, and the lettering was but one a few days after I got back and that's super exciting because it came out great!
