Re: Good Blue Water / Shallow Water Compromise

David, is a Pearson 35 very similar to a 36? There was a 36 in Fiji a couple of years ago. Unfortunately the single hander on it lost the boat the following year. He was fine. Picked up by a fishing boat if I remember correctly.

Back home on Lake Ontario after something over 36,000 nm circumnavigator. Not surprisingly there is a lot of stuff I want to get done on Ainia both cosmetically and functionally. Getting an early start so it will be ready to go for next summer (Lake Superior?).

Re: Good Blue Water / Shallow Water Compromise

I have a similar objective in my boat search and concluded that for me it will be a CB boat between 30 and 35 feet LOD. Bristol, Pearson, Tartan, C&C, or Rhodes. It is a matter of picking your least objectionable compromise among the boats available in your area. Find a boat that you really love, because you will end up spending a lot of money on her, and without love that causes a lot of pain...

Re: Good Blue Water / Shallow Water Compromise

The 36 is similar above the waterline. But below the 35 is a long skeg keel with centerboard, and the 36 is a fin keel with the rudder far aft at the stern.

Re: Good Blue Water / Shallow Water Compromise

I have a cheap old center board sloop ( Soverel 28). 3 foot board up and 8 foot with it down. Mine is 1965 model. I love it. I just ran 700 miles off shore with the board up the whole way. The more time I spend off shore in this thing the less and less board I put down. Even pointing I only put it down 1/2 way at most. I like my Soverel any way's. For what it's worth, I see 'em for sale here and there from time to time.

Years ago, with just the Mizzen and a self tending club footed jib, I could short tack up 20 knots of wind into little harbours and creeks by just pushing and pulling on the tiller....like driving a sports car....and they really are Blue water boats. I just ran, like I said 700 miles in some pretty big following seas at some points and she was right at home out there.

Very interesting... I hear a lot of good things about that type of sail configuration.
Here is a very nice C&C Corvette that was converted to a yawl:

There are really solid boats.

That's a great boat at a decent price. I also browse sailboatlistings.com often. There is a lot of solid, affordable, blue water boats on that site. My freind and I bought a 68, Cal, 38 with a newish Yanmar and a lot of bells for 18 G's last year. As for the yawl set up. It's old school for sure, but as far a self tending short tacking in a good amount of wind, you can't beat that configuration. I am currently working on re steping my mizzen. Not an easy task as my tiller now crosses over where the mizzen step is. I'm working on a custom A frame base for the mast. But back to the OQ of the OP. These last 2 boats introduced by Krisscross are definate Maybe's for you IMOP.

A lot of people don't like having a lot of gear in the cockpit, like a main traveler, or a mizzen, or even a tiller(!) because it gets in their way during cocktail time, but having all that gear there really makes perfect sea sense.

If you re-step your mizzen, what becomes of your windvane? Didn't you just install a Cape Horn prior to your last trip south?
