Re: Big Freakin' Sails - Thanks for your write up.
I started sailing many years ago in dinghies, did a lot of round the cans racing in dinghies, various IOR boats and some cruisers; I even mixed in a bit of offshore work. I owned and sailed a C30 for 5 years on Long Island Sound and have chartered a few times. I am now at a point in my life when I want to get back into sailing and have been wondering what kind of boat to buy. I have to admit that when I owned the C30 I always lusted after a Pacific Seacraft 37 and for that intangible feeling that it could take me anywhere anytime.
As part of the buy a boat exercise I have been reading the forums and doing some sailing. I started out by looking at various bluewater boats but have been gradually coming to the conclusion that I can do all the sailing I want in a larger, newer production boat.
Your well written stories reinforced my evolving view, thanks for your non-chucklehead approach, great reading keep it up.
