Re: Lets choose SmackDaddy's new boat...

What a bummer, I wondered why he hadn't offered up any smackolades to some of the posts in recent days or given a smactimony on how he sees it. I think we should purchase some gear then post the photos of it here to inspire others to do so.

Re: Lets choose SmackDaddy's new boat...

Dadgum Smack......so sorry to hear about your boat.

Great idea about giving Smacky some ideas about a new ride and all of us busting loose on some BFS gear to help fund the effort. I loaded up on some coozies and a hat, and looked around a bit on the net for ideas for Smacktanic 2 - what do you think about this (we'll need to buy a buttload of gear, but it's for a great cause):

Re: Lets choose SmackDaddy's new boat...

Just picked up a hat and some boozies as well, also went to a couple of sailing groups I belong to and posted a message there and asked they check out his sight and pick up some gear.

Re: Lets choose SmackDaddy's new boat...

Man, that sucks.

Gotta wonder if going stern in would've helped. Seems that every single boat was bow in to the slip, so maybe there was a reason for it.

Re: Lets choose SmackDaddy's new boat...

Smack;

That is heart-wrenching. I am deeply sorry to hear of your loss of your beloved SmackTanic. At least everyone is okay. Once you catch your breath, you can begin the third most fun thing in life, looking for a replacement.

Good luck,
Jeff

Re: Lets choose SmackDaddy's new boat...

I think Smack loved his Catalina 27 so I vote for another Catalina, maybe a bit longer and wider, able to coastal cruise. If new, the Catalina 315 is really nice or if used the 320, 310, or 30 are all good coastal cruisers.

Re: Lets choose SmackDaddy's new boat...

Damn man I can't even imagine what you're feeling right now.

Take some time figuring out what's next. We all keep a mental inventory of boats we'd like to have "some day" - but not this way. This is just a real kick in the nuts.

Re: Lets choose SmackDaddy's new boat...

I vote for a Catalina 30, Tartan 30 or a Pearson 30. He'll enjoy the nice cruising accomodations, solid build, and a decent turn of speed at a bargain price. Gotta park it somewhere safer though, or he could be in for a repeat-performance.

I'll "get thee hence" to the BFS site and buy something.

Smack, I'm truly sorry. As a Navy man, I understand the bond between a man and his vessel. I saw the care that you put into your C27 and I know that you had that bond.

Keep calm, and carry on.

Re: Lets choose SmackDaddy's new boat...

This is the first that I have heard of the demise of the S/V Smacktanic... I am sure that Smack is up to his eyeballs in insurance, and legal stuff.

However, the choice of a boat for Smack is an easy one for me: Telstar 28
It is;
  • fast
  • trailerable
  • able to fit in a normal (monohull) slip
  • 1 foot longer than the Smacktanic
  • a boat with training hulls
  • everything that Smack would want - including plenty of 'tude

and we need another multi-hull guy (or gal) to needle.

Re: Lets choose SmackDaddy's new boat...

Ouch.
Hope he had insurance, although money is a small consideration compared to the loss of a treasured boat that has been seasoned with blood, sweat and tears as well as laughter, joy and wonder.
