Two boats: decisions, decisions...

1. 38' Ingrid atkins. The interior is utilitarian functional. tankage is small.
2. 41' Formosa. An older boat. The interior is a bit better and the tankage is a tad larger.

After Giu showed us the Interior of his boat, all others are not up to par.. Dang it Giu! get a dumpy boat. So the rest of us will feel superior.

Well at least you're not saying you can't decide between a Westsail 32 and a Melges 24 !

IIRC the Ingrids are US built... the Formosa built in the Orient. (not positive about that...) That may be a consideration given the era and the "leaky Teaky Taiwanese" tales often told.

Ingrids also IIRC were built in USA, just east of me in Woodinville Wa by Bluewater boats. Altho it may be a different Double ender they built, but they did build a 38' boat of that nature.

None...the ones I saw on Yachtworld were $60.000 or there abouts all pre Columbus...1976 or later..

For that money, buy a Catalina or a Beneteau and sail and have fun doing it...not repair and spend and get aggravated and stay in dock..

My opinion...ahh you'll also get better interiors.

Between the two, I'd lean to the Ingrid ketch. But many of them were sold as kits and owner-finished, so do your homework. Sometimes they are underpowered and/or have terrible engine access. If I was inclined toward this design, I'd try to stretch my budget to find an Alajuela 38 cutter, which is the same Atkin hull with a different rig built to a much higher standard.

Love that clipper bow on the Formosa. The Ingrid doesn't get my juices flowing.

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.

I personally love the Formosa's. Tons of character (and maybe upkeep too!). If it's good enough for Bob Bitchin', isn't it good enough for Boasun too?

Kwalters...I think they are only good if you have his $$ for repairs too!! I'd buy his...but I wouldn't want to go through what he has with it!
