Re: Sailnet Members from around the world check-in please.

I'm an author whose books you can actually buy on Amazon or Barnes and Noble webstore. Just look for "Pawns" by Steve Shapiro, which is ahn historical novel. Or, for straight history and photos, "Carmel = A Timeless Place"


I'm looking for a schooner or a cutter to sail out of California and rest in Maine. Or to sail out of Maine and rest on the east coast, and west coast of GB.


Which design is faster the Schooner or the Cutter?

Charm looks like a great boat, I hope your health doesn't bring you down too low for having missed the boat.

Re: Sailnet Members from around the world check-in please.

Actually it's a 1937, Mike, I thought it was clear -- maybe in a post earlier in the thread -- I haven't bought it yet. There's a closing of escrow and probate to close before I can lay out the money.


When buying a large blue water boat, you can't begin to shop too early. Just to keep in mind, you will be seeing the people you're dealing with later and your integrity will be revealed.


While I have seccretely decided on one of four, my mind has changed only once. So, I'm taking the advice of one broker and to find 20 worth considering. The line up is now five, with than one playing flip flop with another; while the first is now in the wind.


There's a web site for John Alden boats. His designs have been used for boats well after his first run boats have been built. Some of those later boats and up for sale, again.


You can find them on an MIT website because Alden is an MIT alumni. Just going through that site is an education and it's almost all pictures.


A cutter is like a sloop, but can fly more sails and can be sailed by one person. I grew up sailing sloops -- 21, 36, and 42 feet in three boats. A schooner, which I would love has the sails to play with and the fun is the long reach, so I have mixed emotions about the cutter and the schooner.


I think it comes down to a limosine or a coupe.

Re: Sailnet Members from around the world check-in please.

Do you ever sail around to the East coast of Florida? It is an interesting, or dangerous sail? Are you a blue water sailer or coastal sailer? Do you do overnight? How about sailing the Caribbean from the West coast of Florida, is that an easy sail in the fair weather seasons?

Re: Sailnet Members from around the world check-in please.

Yes Steve,
I have done all the above and yes it is interesting and can be dangerous if you do not watch the weather. If you watch the weather and keep an eye out it is fun and easy sailing around Florida.
The West coast of Fl is a great way to go south. Tampa to Isla de Mujers Mexico is one way go the other is to Key West to Havana then to Mexico. The first is four or five days so plan and make sure you have a good weather window. The Key West trip is only a 18 to 24 hour trip but watch the straights because they can be very bad if you do not watch your weather. Either way works well. From there you can continue counter clock wise and end up back where you started with the wind and currents helping you,
smooth sailing mike
