Greetings from Northern California

Hi all,

Name is Bob, retired merchant marine and CMA grad. Sailed the Sea of Cortez ages ago, looking forward to my return to the cruising life before I'm too old to get it (the sail) up.

Dale,

Thanks for the welcome. My last boat was a 1968 Cal 40. I'm currently leaning towards a 10~20 year old PDQ 36 with outboards, as I'm a singlehander.

If it is your dream boat I'm sure I won't be able to add to anything you have already learned about it. I know everyone says this about their boat, but it was in fact a fast old boat. I singlehanded it down from Long Beach to Cabo, and then up the Sea to Mulege in almost 1/2 the passage time planned. 1470 nm in 151 1/2 hours to Sanispac anchorage. Did have an unusual amount of downwind sailing for that time of year, but never expected 230 nm daily runs from a boat so long in the tooth. It was 20+ years old when I bought it. Couple years later, Stan Honey won the Transpac in his almost 30 year old Cal 40. So they are fast downwind.

Sold it and looking for a PDQ 36 cat now.

Who are the cat folks on the forum? Any PDQ owners?

My cal is a flattop 28 kind of looks like an old shoe, Fits good though & about as roomy a 28 the you will find. What style did you have as they made many types? As for PDQ owners you should place a thread asking, & I'm sure you will find them...Dale

It just was a production race boat, that with careful consideration during fitting out for cruising, didn't put on too much weight. It wasn't a cut throat race boat where cockpit combings had been removed, just a sloop rig, tired but still fast, light displacement (for the day) boat. It has been almost 30 years back, so memory is fading, but other than Rhodes 19s, Flying Juniors, et al, it was my 1st serious boat.
