Buccaneer 29

After owning a sailboat for 2 years thinking it was a C&C 30, and finally trying to get it registered with the state, I have found out that it is really a Buccaneer 29. I cannot find any specs on this and would like to have them so I can get a proper PHRF rating. Anyone with info. please Email me.

Greetings from the Seattle area where Buccaneers (built by Bayliner of power boat fame) were built. The "29 feet" tells me that you probably do not actually have a Buccaneer but a US-29. Big difference,as Bayliner actually had built too separate lines of sailboats. The Buccaneers were lousy for buccaneering or sailing, and the US Yachts were much more performance oriented. To my knowledge the all of the sizes of US Yachts were designed by Doug Peterson, a formidable racing yacht designer, and the Buccaneers were designed in-house during the fuel scares of the early-mid seventies. The US29 would perform much more like the C&C 30 with hull and rig design similarities.

I believe you are correct. It looks almost exactly like a C&C 30. Its a little slow, but that could just be the sails, crew, etc. Probably a little of both. We''ve been trying to find out on an average what a PHRF rating would be for it, but I''m having a hard time. We''re scheduled to race next weekend, but our rating is still as a C&C 30. Its too late to change, so we''ll deal with that later. Any ideas? We''re a member of the Gulf Yachting Assn., and I''ve checked their PHRF ratings database, and can''t find anything.
