Re: Captain Wanted - Short Delivery Apr 13

To be real honest with you, I don't think your boat has the needed equipment for the trip. There is no mention of navigation equipment, no sign of dingy or life raft, and I know there aren't exposure suits. I doubt there is an Epirb, or PLB. What appears to be a great adventure for you, your dad and brother can go bad quickly. Without at least some of the items I mentioned, the risk is too great, the responsibility is too great. I hope you well.

Castorp,
...sounds like a really bad idea, out there this time of year. Nothing can justify such a trip. Especially on a schedule! Come skiing with the rest of us, at least you can dress for it...

Re: Captain Wanted - Short Delivery Apr 13

I just looked at the pics on the "for sale" page.



Pardon my ignorance, but why is there a winch mounted to the mast BELOW the deck?

The trip is in April, it should be warm enough, but the water will still be cold. I was cold once....Korea 1978.

Surely not all of us Officers are that bad? As a Marine, we are proud of our Naval roots. Yes I know what will be said, "Isn't the Marine Corps a Department of the Navy?" to which I respond proudly, "Yes, the men's department."

Standard draft is 6 ft.
The information says that this one is shoal draft - 3 ft.
Rogers did make a few centerboard boats - could this be one of them?
Only reason I can think of.

So, the boat hull was modified, centerboard remove and glassed over?

I would accept that explanation, except that as I look at the line wrapped around the winch, the load seems to be above the winch, not below it. (perhaps a Cunningham?)

Regardless, I would hate to ever need to pull the mast. The screws holding the winch mounting plates to the mast on my boat are seized, and I imagine that they would be on this boat too.

Sorry for the tread drift.
