SailorJim....

I'll start out by saying... I know nothing about sailboats... and so I'm sure the senior members will have to 2 cents.... and look forward to hearing it...

Several places around the net you can find the top20 crusin boats, and I would try to stick to the boats that are reccommended... there is a reason that they are on the list... plus if the boats are more common, you'll be more likely to find "parts"....
Now let's hear what the pros say... :)

G'day Jody.

Thanks for that but the only reason I asked was that I had never heard of them.
Seems the Eastward Ho has some credentials but the James Cook Cutter has me lost still.
I did a google search and came up with a lot of Korey Dykstras' somewhere in Canada. (I aint from those there parts so the locations mean nothing to me)
I think Korey Dykstra might have been the designer or builder.

It looks like a bullet proof boat, as does the Eastward Ho.

Come on the rest of you knowledgeable sailors. Help me out here.

Doesn't sound like these two boats are at all well known. Doesn't mean they're not any good -- just that we don't know and don't have anything to tell about them. You may have to find out for yourself by looking at them.

The Eastward Hos are pretty solid boats from what I've heard of them. I've never been on one though, so I can't say how they perform. I've never heard of or seen the other one.

Believe they were made by CE Ryder, who also made the ea Sprite, Southern Cross, Black Watch, early Bristols and some of the Sonars IIRC. CE Ryder made a pretty solid boat.

Thanks sailormann.
And everyone else.

It looks like a smart little cruiser.
The photos looked great.
I knew you guys would come thru for me.
sailnet has a lot of talent HIDDEN in there.
(Don't get swelled heads now)

The other boat, Eastward Ho was built or had a connection with Southern Cross.
Mystery solved.

Thanks a lot
Jim.:cool:
