My Purchase Update

Today was the test sail and the survey on the 38 foot Barberis Show, I am purchasing. It is now a sealed deal...It needs some work as the teak needs to be replaced and on the port side a major chain plate leak, both which I was aware of when I did the initial walk through. Few other issues - but none necessarily warrant a major overhaul of the items. The only disappointment was the fact that it was advertised with VC-12 hard undercoating / ablative for racing - it was Pettit soft ablative. I can't fault the broker - but the seller definitely misrepresented that fact.

None the less the blister condition as noted last year on the vessel was corrected and in the end that is what I looked at, and more concerned with...however, another example of WHY one should get a survey, because I could of based my judgment merely on the owners survey of last year...glad I didn't and spent the money.

For the record I used Ned McCrae of McCrea Marine for the survey. He was INCREDIBLY thorough (even more so than my judicious inspection), answered all of my questions with thoroughness and once we got the feel for each other - was more than willing to volunteer concerns, possible solutions and the likes. He as well actually participated in the sail (something he admits he rarely if ever does) - cleaning up lines, helping with the gybes etc...

I'll even state that while I am not broker friendly myself, that Ryan Heiling, of Swiftsure Yachts, whom was the sellers broker, went above and beyond during the event. When I noted the ablative and questioned - he immediately retrieved records and was as disappointed as I was. At no time did he ever try to cut short what I wanted to do, and went above and beyond I think in more areas than that one - and a joy to talk to as well and imparted alot of relevant personal advice.

So now that the hoopla is out of the way:

PHRF Rating of 102.

Sails upwind well. 5 degrees off - 12 knots of wind 5-7 knots with the geneoa and main up. Was I ever amazed...

It points exceptionally well, and even without a autopilot, stays the course with minimal input.

11 additional sails to go with (most somewhat older but none the less)...

Engine is burning oil - smokes a bit when running and the oil residue is present on the hull... Supposedly a engine job was done - and my gut feeling is that there is an issue to soon be had. (Surveyor doesn't do engines). But its a Yanmar engine so plenty of parts and plenty of resources to identify and fix the problem I think...

Otherwise a great sail today, I think enjoyed by all. It simply is amazing the difference sailing this yacht versus the Cal-27 I taught myself on. In fact I will go as far to say this boat will make me a better sailor as it responds in a manner that lets you know when you are sailing correctly or not...

Some pics - and as of May 27th - my new boat Thanks again for all the inputs on the questions I posed, suggestions, and contributions from everyone....

No- May sadly - however working to be able fix items prior to - paying cash so my deal, in writing, is that closing date is May 27th so I have the funds for the boat as well as related taxes and other fees (USCG documents, etc). Allowed me to work within my means so to speak....There is a good chance that I will have the funds prior to - but at the time I made the deal - I erred on not having the full price so worked extended take delivery date into the deal knowing that by that date it would not be a issue finacially.

Thanks Charlie!

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.

That is a very attractive boat. It looks fast.
