The Tayanas and Cape Dories are both excellent boats... The Niagara isn't bad either.

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.

Just a thought. If you are looking at the Tayana 37 and Cape Dory 36, check out the Tartan 37 (1976-1989 and 10-15k less that Tayana) and Pearson 365 (even less). Not so sure about the Pearson, but if I were going away on a boat, I would have a hard time choosing between the Tayana 37 and Tartan 37. I think I personally would end up with Tartan 37 if I intended to ever hit the Bahamas and wanted to keep in afterward in Chesapeake or something due to the draft difference. I have not been on one, but am just basing that on its good reputation, etc. To me, that seems as close to an "all around" boat as you can get (I know there is no such thing). It may be worth checking out.

Like I told you before, go and learn to sail, get the experience, then once you come back you will see that your sights and skills have changed, and so did your requirments, opinions and needs. These will be sharper and more seasoned, and will guide you in the right direction. This is something you have to do on your own...you don't buy boats by asking to people on Sailnet...you do it yourself...

Many people here don't sail, and many don't even own a boat....

By the way, if you go to the Azores, that's Portuguese territory.....Welcome!!!

I am leaving Thursday morning then will spend the next 5 days or so helping the the boat into ship shape for the crossing.

Giu, I will be staying in Europe after I reach London from the Azores and could possibly visit Portugal. What city do you live in ?

Maybe you can take Silya and I on a sail on your rocket and I'll post the first ever second-hand account on what its like to sail on Guiletta

Kapcer is really pushing it hard.
Just two days ago he has been promoted to AFOC and now he already wants Giulietta.
What will happen after a months at sea? Perhaps he will no longer want 40 feet Giulietta (too much sailing), but the two legged Giulietta...
I think both are off limit.

Kac...I will most gladly take you for a ride, that is if I am there, but most probably will be.

I live in Estoril, Cascais, and my boat is in Cascais Marina (check Google Earth) - 38° 41' 27.30" N 9° 25' 10.05" W
The boat will stay in Cascais until the 5th June (dry for modifications from the 28th till the 5th).

Then from the 7th till end of September we will be in Southern Portugal, in Vilamoura, wich is 37° 04' 33.34" N 8° 07' 19.31" W.

Chances are you will stop over in Portugal after the Azores, as very very rarely people sail staright to the UK from the Azores due to the "permanetely resident" Azores Anti Cyclone. If you skipper goes staright....good luck...

Most boats sail from the Azores to Portugal, then up the coast of Portugal Spain and France across the gulf of Biscay (get ready fore some of the worse weather and seas in the whole World, the Gulf of Biscay will make hair grow in your chest, and dark stains in youir underwear).

As I said, chances are you will be stoping over..if you do let me know. If I am not there, I will arrange for you to go see the boat.

Fred only sails my boat when I am there, for now....but he can take you on his optimist

Just another suggestion, but you might check out a Pacific Seacraft Orion. It's only 27', but definitely a world cruiser.

Most of the Pacific Seacraft boats are world cruisers, starting with the diminuitive Flicka... on up...
