Flicka

Anyone out there currently cruising in a Flicka. It's all the boat I need and would like tips on space utilization and equipment for cruising the Caribbean.

IIRC, there are several Flicka sailors over at this site as well. www.sailfar.net

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Now look, don't go getting all snotty with me cos I'm not answering your question but how much are you going to pay for your Flicka ? Working on the presumption that you are going that small because of budget there are other options that would leave you with more left in the kitty to spend on wine women and song.

I am in the Flicka owners group on Yahoo (go to yahoogroups.com and search for Flicka). That group has plenty of helpful people plus the archives will help.
I have had two of them. Sold one, the other is for sale. Its the one in Miami with enclosed head on yachtworld. But if it does not sell I am taking it down to the leeward islands

I'm going to get a Flicka for many reasons not the least of which is purely aesthetic. Others are I want no more than I will need for myself, seaworthiness and the fact that everything having to do with boats is charged for by the foot. I understand and respect the points JeffH has made in the past on this subject but among other preferences standing headroom in the smallest and best built package is an absolute must with me. Even if that package is not the fastest or most spirited. I'm looking for a boat now and have been for a while. I'll know when I find "The one"

I know what you mean. After I saw the Orion, it didn't matter what you put in front of me, I only needed my Orion. Flicka is an awesome boat, you'll NEVER see a 20' boat like her again......ever. They are all building bigger and bigger now. There will never be another like Flicka.

Dictated, but not read.

Say no more. The Flicka word is somewhat akin to 'global warming', fidel castro, solar stix and who knows what else. Horses for courses and all that.
