They are not the same boat, different designers and very different cabin layouts.

2,700 in november in a 27' buccaneer

last year, when the hoses froze and the boats on lake champlain, vt, were hauled out, three people in the clutches of sail envy, and economic decline, headed south.
these three, myself, Bubbles Mcgillicutty, my wife, Lady Mcgillicutty, brother Twisty Mcgillicutty, and Onyx the dog spent and endured a life changing journey from Vt. to Fla. vai a 1975 bayliner buccaneer. leaving a week before Halloween, it was 18 degrees blowing hard out of the north. Don't forget the snow and freezing rain. with 30 years sailing experience between us, we bobbed, shivered, smiled, laughed and bested the worst weather i have ever seen.
running with a goal of sailing to florida on 30 gallons of gas and a 9.9 Yamaha took all the knowledge of the sea, sailing and safety we had combined.
despite the hardships of beating into and running with "big" seas (6'-13'), and sometime steady winds in the 40's, only once did i think we were going to lose her, and it wasn't entirely the weather.
we lost a lower rudder pintle, and started taking on water, a lot of water 25 miles off the northern coast of fla. had it not been for a shaol draft boat we wouldn't have made Ponce de Leon inlet in 13' breakers out of the NW.
The boat was sound, the rigging with less than 2 years strain on her. she was tender, we put the toe rail under on a reach often enough, she leaked in every portlight, but damn, really? $3,500, 2 mains, 2 jibs, 180 jenneau, my spinnaker, and pole, and set of storm sails we did just fine.
it can be done, not in style, or very fast, but it can be done
we loved our petunais, but we had to upgrade for this year.
happy sailing

Big Seas

6 to 13' is big enough for me. Not as young as I used to be.

US 30 fuel

I have a US 30 with the 13 hp Volvo diesel. Can anyone please advise me who makes the fuel level sender, and / or what the ball park fuel consumption is?

i learned how to sail on the 24' buccaneer that sat in my dads front yard when i was a kid. I'm surprised i ever got into sailing after starting out on that schenanigans. it's only redeeming quality was the kenyen mast system.

I remember during one daysail half the rudder sheared right off... top to bottom, exactly half gone.

and, imo... they're ugly. looked and sailed like a bathtub.

There is an active group on yahoo for the buccaneer.
BaylinerBuccaneerGroup : Bayliner Buccaneer Group
Some are good boats for the beginner. They can also probably refer you to a US group also.

Who cares.

There is another boat out there called a Buccaneer 24. Completely different boat. I found this one looking for that one.

DFSSIERRAVISTA is on a distinguished road
Hi. I am new, both here and to any forum. Without regard to whether the Buccaneers (specifically the 180, 18") is dangerous, I have an old one for which I need a new mast. It had a wooden mast and I do not want to make one. I have been thinking of putting a Hobie 14 on it. Any thoughts. thanks, john
