Boat Usage: The Survey Says...........

How did you use your boat in term of percentage?

Use as

1. Daysailer or weekender
2. Off shore adventure
3. Condo on water with you inside
4. Condo on water with you on dry land

Total should add up to 100%, folks.......

You left out cruising. That's not necessarily offshore, and it isn't full time sailing, but it's not really a condo on the water either if you're on the hook.

6) Condo on dry land, while doing the refitting to avoid sailing

which is what is happening with a certain 41' houseboat you see in someone's avatar.

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.

Hey there Sailingdog, whatcha mean 41' housboat. You're really asking for it now. I'm not defending Surf, I used to own a CT 41' and for a mono hull (I know you don't like those) she was a very nice sailing vessel. And pretty handy too. We sailed in the Delta on the rivers and used the engine only when we had to. There is usually lots of wind in the Delta.
I would probably still own her if my morgage hadn't prohibited me from going out of the Gate farther than 50 miles.
Anyway, in terms of stability, a catamaran comes a lot closer to being a houseboat than a beautifully designed Garden Ketch.

I wouldn't call it a houseboat if I thought it was ever going to see the bottom get wet... but it's got a huge set of wooden stairs leading up to it. It looks like it is there to stay.

I have nothing against monohulls, and sail on them quite often... but I prefer multihulls. One of my crew is disabled, and he would be at a serious disadvantage on a monohull, and probably end up in the water most days... on a tri...he doesn't worry about it, and he can get around fairly well.

SD, you may be out there dog paddling but your number 6 is a low blow. All's fair for The Club members I suppose .

At the very least you're providing the good skipper with more launching motivation.

Let's see...
Catalina on the hard 1 yr now, going thru total refit, bottom job (including blister repair, paint), etc, etc...

Present use for Catalina: 6b) Condo on dry land while refitting to GET SAILING AGAIN. - 100%

Ah, purchased hobie 16 as I could not stand not sailing: 1) Daysailor - 100%

Normal use for Catalina when wet:
1) 32% (Catalina 27 is NOT going offshore - no matter how much the skipper wants to - next boat).
4) 68% (Doggon, I gotta pay for this stuff).

Let's see now.....presently daysailing until the slip lease runs out (6 months for refit) at end of October. Some 2-7 day trips on the Texas Coast starting next week. Then it's off to Florida for the winter and then head up the East Coast with the spring. Primary use will be cruising, or at anchor when I find a place worth stay at for a bit, and then cruise to the next one.

Sailingdog....I'm ashamed of you. Just cause Surferboy is always ragging on people about not sailing, that you'd think anything he says applies to him as well. After all, he did say he goes out on Sundays to watch TV.
