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

Are those fold-up trimarans ocean-worthy? I've sailed on a F-28 locally and they're really fun (and different) to sail but I would eye any folding boat with suspicion for going offshore.

Since I know almost nothing about boats with more than one hull I'll be suggesting monohulls for Smack. I have an idea for something that is ocean-worthy, performance oriented but still affordable.

What about an Ericson???

The 35, 36, and 38 all look to have enough in the way of accommodations and have a V-berth plus a double quarterberth. The quarterberth gets bigger on the 36 and 38, but the 35 might be big enough.

The Ericson 35III has a PHRF rating of 123. Not bad.... There is one for sale now on YachtWorld for 42,500 (about 36,000 after negotiating).

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

SmackDaddy should buy THIS BOAT:
Fully Loaded Ericson 38

Wow, me thinks that boat is a steal! Brand new engine, custom solar arch, watermaker, cape horn steering, liferaft, tides marine strongtrack and new-ish sails. The sail down to TX could be a BFS as well. I wonder if he could find anyone to help with the delivery....

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

small lake, spawn, apparently an interest in speed and not multihull averse, accomodations secondary to performance...
a Stiletto and a tent for the tramp.
the trampoline, not what you're thinking.

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

Really sorry to hear the bad news. I thought this thread was some kind of a joke and after all it is sadly a serious matter. I guess that you need not any help to chose a new boat... you probably know what you want. I hope the lost one was insured.

Um abraço

Paulo

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

I vote for a Schock 35 for Smacks new boat. Lots of interior room. VERY solid build, I have heard of many that have been sailed from Cali to Hawaii, has a PHRF rating of 72...FAST. Can be had from 20k-40k easily. There are 4 on Yachtworld now....

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

Hmmm. Hasn't posted in a week, but was last sign on 8 hours ago?

Maybe they won't let him type in the Smack-sylum.

I don't know any of this first hand, but according to CD Smack has suffered a loss, much more serious than his boat, recently. I suspect that his last sign on was to communicate with CD.

My thoughts are with him, and I hope to see him back soon.

Goodness, I hope it is as recoverable as a boat.
