Re: 42 ft Slocum: Need Advice.

If you do not have experience sailing/ handling a 40 something sailboat of heavy displacement I would suggest you find some nice soul who will take you out on one. That is a lot of boat for a couple to handle, can be done but worth considering.

Re: 42 ft Slocum: Need Advice.

We have sailed my brother's 36 ft Lapworth over a period of 4 or 5 summers, between 3 & 5 weeks a summer. Its been in bad repair so haven't sailed her the past couple years. We figure we need more room than that if we are going to live aboard.

Re: 42 ft Slocum: Need Advice.

Welcome Debs, another newbie with plans for heading out. We are from the west too, AB, but heading out later this summer from the east. Well wishes, and all the best with making your choice of boat. I'm liking the center cockpits the more I look, but am happy with our choice because we have sailed her, and she felt very secure. I've read, you need to love the boat you pick, and with love we all know, it take commitment and work, so follow your heart, and of course.. all the knowledge of this site Best wishes.
