Nice! I recently bought one very similar. Did yours have a swing keel/centerboard? Mine does. Did you sail her? How did she handle?

I set your photo as a desktop background, but the image remained small. Could you PM me a lager image? I'm interested in how to do the rigging. I have the mast and rigging but won't even think about rigging her till winter is long gone here in Maine. Any other rigging photos would be appreciated.

I'm kind of excited about the possibilities.

Here's another of the '71 Seafarer 24 interior...I added a halfway decent floor to her but hadn't finished painting the inside of the starboard sole/hull area when this was taken..I loved her stout, well-seasoned compression post...I miss that boat alot...just not the 4'11 headroom...

Balboa 20

Here's my first and only sailboat, a 1972 Balboa 20.
Just got it in August, took ASA101 for confidence, and Started sailing.
It's what I'm learning on for a couple of years before either getting something larger, or getting out altogether. The latter isn't likely, we're loving sailing so far.

Oooodiiiiiin

Hi.I'm here for thr first time and hurry to show my last boat-a litle,beautiful, 22ft.gaff "Odin".I made her from armocement-most cheap and fast way to make a boat and go to sail.She was a litle more heavy,but very stable under strong wind and short waves in Black Sea.

Mike,

Some of these make your Santana 525 seem palatial.


I love these small boats - sailing should always be about the simple life. These boast represent the simple virtues.

i really think my boat i pretty spartan in nature. there is a love for simple. after looking at this thread, the santana 20 looks even more appealing!
the harbor 25 seems like a condominium!

Absolutely! Kind of hard to stow in a micro cruiser, but worth it when you anchor for the evening. And using no electric power you can provide your own relaxation and music, which does feel a bit like sailing. Last summer we got a "boat guitar" for $50. It's a used guitar with a plywood top, accurate fretboard, and remarkably good sound, something we don't have to worry about and for which we can use a garbage bag as a "case". Keeps the package smaller.

We set up a tarp and camped on shore during a series of terrific night time thunderstorms, really nice to have the guitar in the camp. I think it rained every single day of our week's vacation, but fortunately not all day. Nice sunrise each day.

the best recordings were done aboard my boat. i guess the space is accousticly perfect. the best part is the sounds of the seagulls in the back ground!

*sigh* I just got back from my third trip to the Toronto boat show. The smallest cruiser was a "gigantic" and spacious 28' TES... I don't count the Mini Transat boat that was there (6.5M). They had small dinghy's and a 22' Hunter day sailer, but nothing like what we love. Lots of Beneteau's, Jeanneau's, Hunters and Catalina's... all 30-45'.

Nothing with character like the Contessa 26 or a Nordica/Halman 20' or a Falmouth Cutter or a folk boat ... You get the idea.

*sigh*
