You really don't want to go there......

I did not say I was geriatric...I said its harder to move, because my knees are weaker...and the gear was designed like that so I can singlehand her...form both sides...

You wish....just wish...you could move on her on any other boat as I do....

So keep the wheel chair.....

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.

Nah, I prefer my sailboat to have a non-self-detonating boom.

I'd like to have it except for 1 little detail, it would hang over the side of my boat about 3ft on either side!!!

Different 27' Dufours:

Of the older Dufours there are three 27 foot long , but only one Dufour 27.

There is the Dufour 2800, 27 feet long produced in the late 70's into the eighties, the boat referenced earlier in this thread.

Before that there was the very similar early 70's Dufour Safari , which was 27 feet long and also had a cabin trunk and and a galley forward. See Dufour Web Page

Finally, there was the "real" Dufour 27, built side by side with the Safari in the mid seventies. This was a very different boat, flush deck, high freeboard and high reserve bouyancy that made them pretty seaworthy, with numerous transatlantic crossings, including in the old singlehanded "OSTAR" race.

The higher decks also gave them a lot of room down below, making them a very decent liveaboard. Almost 6 feet of headroom. There was even a three or four bottle winecellar down below!

Still, a short waterline and small main - they weren't the fastest. If anybody is looking for a safe, livable pocket cruiser for about $10K, these can't be beat.

A boat with "almost 6 feet of headroom" is a decent liveaboard??? Is this for Little People Big World Goes to Sea????
