Help! I need experienced opinions
So here's the quick of it. I've been posting all over for weeks trying to find some semblence of information about the Seafarer 31 Mk1 sloop... to no avail! I've even gone as far as to email Bill Tripp Jr about his father's design but have yet to hear back. So here's a new idea. Forget that it's a seafarer 31 since no one knows anything about her, I am going to give you the specs and a few picture examples and you guys (and gals) tell me what you think she'd be like.
This is a project for me, I have a perfect hull with a good diesel engine, and the intention to travel in this boat in a few years; thats it. The rigging, interior, the whole 9 needs to be redone and because of it its kind of like haveing a blank canvas to work with and make my own creation. Soooooo, without further ado...
Ballast: 3500# encapsulated lead
main- 170 sq ft
jib- 190 sq ft
genoa 290 sq ft
Even if you just compare her to another design, thats fine, I just need some feed back. Thanks!
