Thoughts on Hylas 46 Please

Looking to purchase 1995 Hylas 46. It has been in charter and mast has been cut down 18" by a prof. rigger after hitting a bridge and bending mast head. Thoughts on boat performance and reduced mast height please. Mainsail unchanged Thanks.

The Hylas 46 is a GREAT boat. I charted one twice in the BVI's and it is a real bluewater boat that sails well and is most comfortable. The chief concern I would have is NOT the reduced mast height or the necessity of recutting the mainsail as she is a fast boat and the 18" won't matter too much in cruising...and you should get a nice reduction in price.
The real concern is that bridges that bend masts can put an awful lot of stress on the WHOLE boatand rig and a very close survey of the chainplate and rig and hull integrity is a must.

I believe most of this has been addressed in a previous thread that you posted Dougshipl. That thread can be found here.

I really don't know why you insist on asking the same question over and over again. The previous thread was a duplicate thread with basically the same question...as is this one. If you don't like the answers you're getting, which are pretty on-target—stop asking the damn question.

BTW, it is against Sailnet's user policy to have two logins...and somehow I seriously doubt that you and dougship of the previously posted threads are different people... given the similarity in user handles and specificity of the subject involved.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Thanks Dawg...I thought that looked familiar! ....but he changed his name slightly on the re-post so looked like a new user.
Bad boy Doug. We don't need to waste our time responding to the same questions twice from the same person.

The chances of the poster and dougship from the original thread about a Hylas 46 that had a mast shortened due to hitting something being different people is pretty astronomically small... especially when the new poster's username is dougshipl...one letter added to dougship. UGH...
