Consider the Alberg 35 by Pearson, a beautiful classic that sails extremely well and because of age is often priced low. Also the Pearson Coaster, 30 feet, is solidly built and sails well.

In boat design there are always trade-offs, and as you see people develop biases. Keep an open mind and try sailing on a lot of boats.

Best,

Jerry

listings for just about anything to give you an idea what's out there. Plug in your numbers, budget, location, etc... voila. Research is your friend. For full keel, the Alberg 35 is a nice choice. Pearson Tritons from the same era (28') can be found in conditions from s to shinola. Contrary to what Jeff says, there are good boats from every era out there. The older you go, the more careful you're going to have to be. On my old dock, there was an Islander 36 (IOR influenced...IOR MkII?), an Alberg 35 (CCA), and S&S 34 (Early IOR). These 3 designs have extensive racing and cruising histories. All three on the dock are very well maintained. Though a bit larger than you're probably looking for, they prove the greater point that not all boats from the 60's and 70's are terrible by any means. Not as fast as more recent boats, but one of any of the above would make a great boat. I'm not buying the deck stepped mast deal either. You're telling us that everyone from O.Stephens, B.Farr to C.Schumaker and M. Mills are wrong? There are plenty of good structural reasons for keel stepped masts... too many to go into in the length of a short post. Opinions are fine, but as a moderator, it would be worth taking the time to explain both pros and cons of your ideas. Sorry Jeff.

Well here's a 1967 FinKeel S&S designed sloop built by Chris Craft in 35 knots of wind on the bay Mothers Day.

And, it sails very well.

This doesn't looks like a "fin keeler" to me. It's a 1963 CCA rule boat



Full keel, cutaway forefoot- Not a "skimming dish" with a fin. That "innovation" came later.

Thanks for any input.

PS:Also if anyone knows..Which were full keel with the mast stepped off of the keel. :-)
Not sure what you mean by stepped off keel; Do you mean the mast sits on the keel or sits on deck?


I am not really answering your questions, just providing examples, all deck stepped masts.
The Carl Alberg designed boats fit your discription;
See yachtworld for a more complete listing

Non alberg designs

Contessa 26(My personel favorite only becuase I own one)
Small, but with a strong following and a little easier to trailer.

Up here in Canada Whitby boat works made a boat called a Whitby folkboat, same hull as the Contessa 26 but with a taller cabin, for more standing head room

Jerry, whoever he may be, asked his question nearly 8 years ago and hasn't posted since. Hopefully he's figured out which boat he wants and bought it already. This thread... is... old.........

My mistake, to be fair, the 5 posts before me didn't seem to mind posting to an old thread.

It didn't stop you either.... just say'n

I too posted before looking at how old the thread was. Especially after seeing Jeff barked at and the rep of the little ankle biter doing it...

I think most were responding to Jeff's small 'r' rant about old boats. I missed the original post date as well. Just assumed since it popped to the top it was relatively new. Oh well...
