KADEY KROGEN

Looking for owners or sailors having experience with the Krogen 38. They were built back in the mid to late 80''s.

Kadey Krogen

we owned RUFFIAN for six years. lived in Key West and sailed exyensively in the Bahamas. best boat I ever owned. would still have it if a lightning strike hadn't totaled it. came through 35kt sustained, gusting to 45 with no problem. only change I would make (and was getting ready to do) is a running inner forestay. pulling a jenny around in that cutter rig is a real pain. unique feature: trimming the tandem centerboards, and appropriate sail trim, the wheel could be lashed for an almost perfect self-steering. had some blistering problems, but ground them out, filled them and never had another problem. some leaks/hairline cracks can occur around the scuppers in the foredeck well, but easily repaired. our boat had a marinized diesel rabbit engine, the Pathfinder. totally bulletproof. most reliable diesel I've ever seen. damn, I miss that boat.

Jehussey-

I seriously doubt he cares much six-and-a-half years later. Please check dates before replying to a post.

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.

Kadey-Krogen

Hello jehussey

I know it's probably bad form for the forum, but it's interesting how one old post can regenerate interest where it may not have been intended.

You said your Krogen was lost to lightning. And I've seen some "lightning" discussions over the last few days on the forum.

After last week, though, when my 82 Kadey-Krogen was anchored out in some of the worst lightning storms I've seen in years (with the tallest boat in a small harbor in Martha's Vineyard), I was wondering how you lost your Krogen to lightning? Did you add any special lightning protection?

I would just as soon not do what you did. I love my boat as well and could never replace her.

Bob

And here it is another 2 years on and the late post id interesting to me, at least.
Still out there Bob? I'd like to hear from an owner of this boat.

Re: KADEY KROGEN

How about three years later.
The question still stands, the KK38 is holding my interest. I havevread most everything there is on the internet about the boat. I've heard it handles high winds just fine but I would like to hear how it handles the heavy seas.

Regards,
Jaxx
