Wow, am I excited.

.... Okay, are you ready for this?

We are not buying a Catalina 27 or a CS 27.

But instead, are putting in an offer tomorrow for a 1982 32' Bayfield (Ted Gozzard design) cutter rig, fully equipped for blue water sailing And we're heading to Mexico!

Here she is.
YachtWorld.com Boats and Yachts for Sale

HAs anyone owned this boat before? tell me what you think of it.

I fell in love with this boat at first site, then brought the miss to it and she fell in love with it too, more than I did, In fact. lol, done deal.

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.

Wow. Good boat, reasonable price if it checks out. It looks very nice cosmetically, but then Bayfields seem to inspire devotion to detailing.

There's about three of them at my club and while they seem to induce an endless desire to sand and varnish in their owners, I do notice them out in the crap weather I like to sail in. They appear weatherly and well-found and Gozzard is a decent builder with some unusual ideas in his bigger boats. The Bayfield 32 is not particularly eccentric, however, and while the tankage and stowage mean it's probably only a bluewater boat for at the most a skinny couple, it's not going to come apart in a blow. Here's a bit of commentary: Bayfield 32 - Used Sailboat Market in Canada

Congratulations, and fair winds!

If you were like me the first time, the thrill is going to be over real soon.

Nice looking boat! Looks like she was well taken care of. Good luck.

Of course She is in outstanding condition so I think the survey will go well. I'm going to offer something like 68,000 or 70,000

There is the exact same boat for sale in Vancouver, for only $65K except, crappier upholstery, not so much personalized on the inside.

THIS boat, has been VERY well taken care of. And it has BRAND NEW sails and windlass. I think a 70 K offer is reasonable


I've never sailed a cutter rigged boat, so this will be a fun new experience. What are the main differences in cutter rigs? From what I've heard it can't point up into the wind as much.

What the advantages and disadvantages ?

I like the fact there's more sails. It gives me more lines to play with.

Lower, looooowerrrrrrr.
If you are going to Mexico and ICW, you will be happy with the stay sail. Cam can fill you in. He knows much more about it than me.
