have you ever Googled "Atom Voyages"? He has a great blue water boat list and a sensible ethos that might be helpful

He may even be able to comment on the Renegade.
If he does could you let me know?
Thanks carry on toward the sea!

The Renegade was the slooted to fill in the 1960s Pearson line between the smaller Ariel and larger Triton. While the other two were designed by Carl Alberg, the Renegade was the first of many Pearsons designed by Bill Shaw. A bit more modern underbody than the other two but same solid construction. With a boat this old, condition is everything.

Having had Renegade #105 for almost 10 years, I can say that they are great sailing boats. Perfect for starting out, or for a couple. Not as much room as more current designs. Very solid and durable hull. Modern underbody. I had like 40-50 very small blisters when I first took it out of the water, which I removed and applied barrier coat. No problems since. Teak toerail is a pain to keep up. I have had it in very rough seas and it always came through fine. Most Renegades will need rudder bushings replaced, new rigging, rebedding of deck hardware, etc. Gelcoat on cabin top is thin and prone to spiderwebbing. All the pros and cons of an older boat.

There used to be a class web page, but it seems to have lapsed.

There is a wikipedia page for the boat that basically echoes what has been said here.

One of my favorite boats. You get the classic looks of a CCA-inspired design above the waterline, and the benefits of a more modern underbody without having to spend a zillion dollars on a Friendship or Alerion. It bears repeating: any boat you find will be over thirty years old, and you should be prepared to spend a good chunk of change on repairs/upgrades.
