Re: Newbee

Welcome to the group. Tell us about yourself - where do you sail and on what kind of boat?

My next Yacht

Thanks' for the welcome.
I think I am looking for the impossible yacht.
About 30/40 length, capable of high latitudes, single or short handed sailing, tiller steering, safe cockpit with lockers that drain into cockpit, flush decks. I am 6'2" so headroom might be an issue. Ketch or cutter rigged.
Any suggestions?

Well then the next question would be, what's your budget?

Re: Newbee

Hi, how about a Columbia 39-1 . I think these boats look really cool , they have only a small blister house over the companion way otherwise they are flush deck with over 6 foot head room . They do however have wheel steering . Wait I can't believe I for got ! The boat you describe is a Kendell 32 . That boat was the first Westsail . Hope you like it .

Re: Newbee

Hi Markwesti,
Thanks for the heads up on the Kendell 32, I have revised the size I am looking for, between 30 to 35ft. I think this size is more manageable for single handed.
People that owned or have owned a Kendell seem very happy with them. I want to use sheet to tiller steering, purely as a backup system. I did make such a system many years ago and wondered if there was any further development.
