Re: Interesting Sailboats

Here you go!
new 64' boat announced......no info as to what how where etc...........

"Exciting news just in for those who find the Jeanneau Yacht 57 a bit too small. A Jeanneau Yacht 64 should be available in 2014.

This will be the largest monohull sailing yacht that Jeanneau have produced, but coincidently comes 20 years after a prototype Bruce Farr designed Sun 63 that did not regrettably make it into series production."

Oh, no need to hit the link eh!

Re: Interesting Sailboats

I dont understand Monohull thinking, Monohulls are very nice to look at traditional sailing, slow sailing contained to a cockpit or the lifeline! Once it starts healing Yeahh your having fun going slow Sideways healed over with a trick to get inside if you need a drink!

A catamaran is not hard to sail at all i dont know why people say this! I use to sail monos now i am a catamaran lover! I can get places quicker, i do not need whitecaps to have a fast sail! When the winds pick up i can go faster and safe and drink and eat in 25 plus winds! you can always find a used boat yes buying new is alot of dollar but if you have it i would buy a Catana

The Outremer is another awesome boat i prefer Dagger boards the boat points better and you can pull them up!

That was frightening, the motorboat had a malfunction on the commands and just keep coming astern till hit my anchored boat. These professionals with big motorboats like to show off using big power to turn the boat around and the result was full speed astern. the boat should be doing more than 6K when it hit my poor boat.

To aggravate the situation the impact was not with the motorboat hull but with the steel structure of the swinging platform (much more narrow). The result was just some deep scratch on the gelcoat and I would not be surprised if some delamination would have happened (even if not visible) since all impact was on the cored hull zone and very localized.

The impact was just huge and the British skipper of the near by old Camper and Nicholson could not believe the boat was not holed.

The interior wood work is all good. I have to take it apart to see if the fiberglass is okay. Never saw anything like this and it had just to happen to me.

Now, that is bad luck

By the way, it happened on the Vulcano Island near Messina straight.
Paulo,

Very sorry to hear about your misfortune. ....but quite glad to hear you stayed afloat!

I wish your Comet a quick recovery.

Regards,
paul

Re: Interesting Sailboats

Paulo, Had not read about the rear end hit of your boat. I was with some folks a week or so ago with a Jeanneau 44DS, the day after our club left a cruise weekend, some went for a week up in the San Juans. This boat was hit, also in the transom by a 50' MV that going full astern or something of that nature. Apparently some pretty good damage to the transom. They are trying to figure out of the boat is safe to bring back to the US from Canada to get repaired, or if it will be a wreck! Not something I enjoyed hearing the other day. As this couple has only had the boat since march or so. It is a brand new 2013!

During long journeys in monohulls I found that after a while I was tired of
  • getting in and out of a steep and deep companionway
  • going around the boat to attend cable jams or reef sails
  • fix things in the galley while underway

I'd try to avoid this "design features" in my chosen boat

As far as I've seem I cannot agree more, they are not difficult to sail. You'll loose some helm feedback and will have to adapt yourself to this side effect.

The outremer also has daggerboards, but I think that they've changed a little bit the original concept (Gerard Danson's design). The 5X, showed in the video you posted, features a lot of "extras" and I just think that electricity and salt water doesn't go along very well. I'd try to keep them to a minimum for a cruiser boat. But 220+ for a 10 years old 45' with such a spartan interior is a LOT of money IMHO. Anyway I'll keep them in sight should an opportunity arises.

Thanks for sharing your opinion

Hi Paul,

It seems that it was more my ego, the boat has just some scratches and I sail on...still looking for restitution

After that I sailed on and got a force 7, pulling the dinghy and all and the boat is just fine.

Thanks for your concern,

Have nice winds,

Paulo
