Glad to see you're still paying attention, GTK! ... and also glad to hear you're happy with your boat.

Re: Passport 42 designed by Stan Huntingford

Would love to hear more about your 42 now that you've had a few months to get to know her. Any little insight would be appreciated from one who is seriously looking in that direction. Thanks--

If you are considering a passport 42 I recommend it. It's sturdy, very seaworthy and suprisingly quick for its weight. It's roomy with plenty of storage and above average access to wiring and equipment.

Re: Passport 42 designed by Stan Huntingford

Appreciate that. I've been vacillating between the Passport and something a bit more performance minded that would keep moving in light air. I was wondering about the quality of the P42 because they seem to sell for considerably less than nearly anything else in it's class--but it sounds like she holds her own. Thanks again.

Re: Passport 42 designed by Stan Huntingford

As an engineer and experienced sailor I can tell you that the quality of the Passport 42 is outstanding. Bronze port holes, proper hardware, Burmese Teak interior, stoutly rigged, high volume tankage. The decission depends upon what you will use it for. If you will be going offshore the Passport will get you through when the poop hits the fan. If you don't have a lot of time and plan to sail mainly inland it's overkill and you would be better off buying the performance boat.
Good Luck

Re: Passport 42 designed by Stan Huntingford

For the record. The Slocum and the Passport are the same hull but with one difference. One model has a vertical rudder stock and the other has a raked rudder stock. As I recall the Slocum has the raked stock. Huntingford took the cheap and sleazy way out by selling the Slocum group the same boat he had designed for Passport. He made a slight change to the rudder stock rake so he could call it a "different" boat. This ended up causing friction between Passort and Huntingford as well it should have. Passport quit working with Huntingford.

But it's a good design in either version. I have raced against it. There was one in Seattle called Europa and it did quite well. It wasn't a real winner but it usually gave a good accounting of itself. As I recall it sailed about boat for boat racing with the Baba 40.

Please visit my blog. It's fun to read.
