Thanks for that link. I voted. Strange the IP 38 is getting the most votes.
My feelings are wounded.

Re: Cruising Worlds Top 40 Boats

One of the Babas should have made the list. Baba 30 or 35 would get my vote.
And since when Alerion Express 28 is a cruising boat?

Re: Cruising Worlds Top 40 Boats

Not much of a list without a Macgregor 26 on it.

Re: Cruising Worlds Top 40 Boats

These lists are always a bit of a problem. But they are fun anyway. I agree with the Crosser, the Alerion is a nice boat but no Valiant 40 or even an IP38. But they do advertise!

Don't sweat it, Bob... If there were 2 boats I would have bet anything that would make the list before looking at it, I'd pick your Tayana 37, and Valiant 40...

Just off the top of my head, 2 boats notable in their absence come to mind...

The Tartan 37, a very successful S&S design (almost 500 built) which seems to epitomize the shoal draft keel/centerboard concept... And, the Allied Seawind, the first fiberglass boat to ever circumnavigate, and like the Westsail 32, was very representative of a stout, seaworthy, no-frills little boat that was a great value, and really helped make cruising attainable for those of more modest means...

Re: Cruising Worlds Top 40 Boats

I'm not a Facebook user, so I can't vote or see the voting results, but I'm surprised the IP is leading the pack. Certainly a subjective and a bit obtuse list, but a fun read just the same!

I'm totally with you on the Tartan 37. I think they built over 500 of them. I'm going sailing on one next week. Owner wants to do some "modifications". I'm telling him to leave it alone!

Wow, for you to admit to liking a shoal draft boat - now THAT is saying something... (grin)
