Baltic 37

I am looking at a Baltic 37 that needs some TLC (and, um, a new teak deck) but appears fundamentally sound, will be having a survey early next week and would welcome any model or maker-specific comments or potential issues.

Thanks,

Chris

I am not familiar with it except that I would suggest that you make sure you know what you are getting into with the teak deck. I have heard numbers like 70k (USD) + for a new one.

Just to close out the thread, I ended up buying the Baltic for a fair price and invested in a new teak deck and standing rigging, to go with many hours and a few boat bucks in other repairs and improvements. I found a yard (Arne Zeeman Enkhuizen) that has dreplaced decks on similar boats, appreciates the Swan/Baltic style, and allowed me to help with the grunt work to keep costs down (nothing more fun than backing out a few thousand epoxied screws).

Two weeks ago she went back in the water and has been a joy since. Nice to spend a lot of time on the positive side of 6 knots, not getting passed by, in a comfortable and classic boat. Can be a bit of a handfull solo though...

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.

Great C&C classic design which should be a joy to sail. They are known for seaworthiness and easily managed in a blow. Good luck sailing.

LonrShark-

You really would be much better off starting your own thread, since your post is completely off the OP's topic. If you don't know how to start your own thread, read the POST in my signature. I would highly recommend you read the post in any case, since it will help you get the most out of your time on sailnet. Welcome to the asylum.

Haguesail has not posted since July, so the odds of him scanning a new thread will be slim. You might try to PM him. Good luck and welcome aboard.

Baltic 37 Brut - Update

I'm back. Just got my first silverware last weekend in the North Sea Race. San Juan2R -- it is indeed a joy to sail.
