Whitney Carib 41

Hey all, I have done extensive searching here and on the web. Who has info (other than sailboatdata) on the 69/70 Whitney Carib 41 designed by Gurney? I looked at one today and she's great, but having trouble locating information for my due diligence research.

Re: Whitney Carib 41

Just a note of caution here from an old memory - In one of his books, Don Street wrote a snippet about them having core problems. Apparently they were done with some kind of filler foam rather than the foam core process we are now familiar with. It got waterlogged or otherwise degraded.

As I said, it's an old memory so don't let it scare you off but I would have the hull very carefully surveyed for soundness.

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.

I owned one of these from 1998 to 2006 and it is a great boat. We bought her essentially as an abandoned mess from the previous owner and redid just about everything. We had no core issues whatsoever. We used her more as a motorsailer and had a great time with her in the southern Caribbean.
