Seidleman 30

There are a couple good looking, reasonably fitted-out, used Seidleman 30''s in my range. I was wondering if anyone has any experience with these boats and would care to lend an opinion or two. I''m unfamiliar with the name, and am looking for a budget-oriented passagemaker.

Jack, see what you''ve done to me? :-)

Seidleman 30

These boats started life as MORC race boats and morphed into cruisers. They were designed to beat a rule, a rule that is completely changed to purposely move away from boats like the Seidelman 25''s and 30''s, and as such they were not what I would call a well rounded sailing boat. They tended to be quite tender and tricky to sail well.

Beyond that they really were very poorly built, So while I hate to be the voice of doom and gloom, there is a good reason why these boats are cheap but they are still not cheap enough to be worth messing with.

Thanks, Jeff. No worries about dooming and glooming. This is just the kind of honest opinion I was hoping for. I''m still looking at that Albin Ballad I found close by . . .
