Allures 39.9 - change the midships hull-port

ok - decided that the weekend is still 2 days away, so a late night shot of single malt and this is the rough alternative .......

Nix the double vertical hull ports, never really felt comfortable with such large hull openings.
Understand the reliability of these things has improved greatly but, always thinking what kind of kit needed for offshore repairs.

For hot climate sailing i wonder if they've designed a bimini from dodger to arch ....... it means you have to steer from the rails for fwd visibilty but would be a nice covered cockpit (assuming the dodger frame isn't too flimsy



Looks like a dodger can be had. We are having problems having a bimini made for the Boreal. The company in France who has been making them for Boreal is not up to the standards we have in the Pacific NW of the USA. We did find a great company in Falmouth, England that does high quality work and we may have to go over there after sea trials to get one made. Because the places we are headed for with lots of malaria and dengue fever we need the zippered sunbrella/screening made for the cockpit area and that has become a real challenge. Does anyone know of a good canvas company in Portugal? We would rather go south than north.

If your thinking about the 39 have any of you thought about the wind vane situation and the foil. Has anyone seen one on the 39?

I like the idea about the single malt but here in Hood River, OR. USA it's getting warm and all most time for Fu Fu drinks and gin and tonics. and as I write it is now 5PM and time for one.

Cheers

From a practical point of view I don't like all the chamfered edges to the woodwork - with typical usage will just attract wear & tear faster than rounded edges. The saloon seating doesn't look that inviting either; I don't want to pre-judge too much as this design is near top of our list - so will reserve judgement until a physical inspection later in the year.




IKEA must be making a move into naval interior design. I was so excited about this boat. That interior is AWFUL LOOKING. What were they possibly thinking? I agree, Paulo. The older interiors are much nicer. I don't mind a modern looking interior. I just mind the decisions (colors, layout) that were made here.

...talk about taking the wind out of my sails....uhg

Re: Interesting Sailboats

I believe you will have a much better outside view with the vertical ones, and if well made in an aluminum hull they will not represent any problem. of course you can decide you don't need a view and just don't have any

I guess that when you see the boat you will decide. That would not be a problematic to modify.

Lock Crowther Regatta

I never heard about this one, probably because it is raced on the other side of the world, but it looks like good fun to me:








I don't understand that Australian thing of not allowing the multihulls to compete in some races with monohulls (Sydney-Hobart for instance) or on this one, Monohulls not competing with multihulls. For me an offshore sail race should have all classes together, even if with different classifications. That makes it a big party shared by all that love offshore racing even when it is a a serious sail event. That smells to me like conservatism and in a country that is not very conservative, it is quite amazing.

For me, putting aside very top all professional races, offshore races should be like these were even guys in small boats can compete with bigger ones, multihulls and monohulls alike, professionals, good amateurs and not so good. Why not, the sea is big enough to all. Well a Laser is a bit as an exaggeration as an offshore boat, but on these ones there are plenty of rescue boats mixed in the race.









Fair play! The British were always good about it, at least regarding with others

Re: Interesting Sailboats

I kind of like the vertical windows. They add an element of "electricity" to the look.
