Very Cool. As I understand it the molds for the hull changed hands a few times, and I knew some were offered as bare hulls. Any old pictures?

My Douglas 32

Let me join the list of new Douglas 32 owners. In fact, in September, we purchased the boat in the link identified by "seabreeze_97". It is now on the South Shore on Nova Scotia. We only had it out a few times before it went on the hard, but it sailed beautifully. Last day was a 35nm run to it's new marina.

Seems to me that there are a number of folks in the area/region who may be keen to share information.

It has a Westerbeke 4 cyl -27hp- I have the manual if anyone is interested
It also was fitted with an Eberspacher diesel-fired forced air furnace, and I managed to bench fire it this winter....from ?1976? I would love to get hold of some parts if anyone has a dead unit..

My first two projects---when the mast was removed, the marina had to cut the mast wiring. I'm not sure how I want to reconfigure the connections for easier diconnect.

The largest portlights..above the nav table/galley do leak a bit. I am thinking of removing, finding replacements, and adjusting the openings to match.

There are a 100 other things to do, but this will get me started.

Looking forward to hearing from the other proud owners!

Chris

Douglas 31/32 Hullmaster

Hello,
We bought our '81 Douglas five years ago, before the owner's group site closed down - I had copied some info to my own site, cthompson.ca - Home but if you want to get as much info as possible try the internet archive:
Douglas Owners Group - Home of the Ted Brewer designed Douglas and Hullmaster 31' and 32' Sailing Vessels
If you want some of the original brochures, I have pdf's I can email you.
-Chris

Drop me an email.
Any luck on that Facebook group?

Facebook Group

Hi, I've set up a group which FB now calls a "page". It is open to anyone on FB so feel free to look it up and join. That link you provided was wonderful and managed to find the dark group from some sort of archive. I'm going to risk hurting anyones feelings in the interest of general knowlege and copy some of the info to the FB page.

FB page

I've searched FB... to no avail! What's it called, or how would I find it?
(clearly I don't spend too much time on Facebook)

Try Facebook.com/jrm288

I think that's my profile. "friend" me and you should be able to find it. Maybe I should just bite the bullet and set up a proper web page, if I can figure out how. But that'll be a post sailing winter project.

Glad to see someone in the area. I was done to the Penobscot for 3 weeks and just got back... Truly great sailing and scenery. I'm going to do some of the south shore in your neck of the woods next year. I'll have to tap you for some info, and ideas next year. I'm on Facebook at Facebook.com/jrm288 if you do the FB thing. I set up a public Douglas page if you're interested.

I may try to figure out how to do a real webpage after the sailing season ends.

Be safe in the face of Irene.

John

Just purchased Douglas 31 built in Barrie ,on and I'm wondering if anybody may know what they used for balast.
The boat was built in 1976 and launched in 1986

Very cool. I understood that some hulls were sold as "kit boats" nice to hear you folks did such a nice job. If you're on Facebook check out:

www.facebook.com/#!/groups/180704598614604

I set up a "page on D32s. Feel free to post some pics of your boat... in fact everyone should post some pics of their D32s. Always nice to get some eyecandy now that the cold weather is getting ready to hit us in the north.
