Re: Best used cheap blue water boats 30-45ft

Local Library may have this book:

Twenty Affordable Sailboats to Take You Anywhere Nestor, Gregg (Book - 2007)

In Twenty Affordable Sailboats to Take You Anywhere you will find in-depth reviews of twenty affordable,comfortable, and seaworthy sailboats.These boats range in size from 30-38 feet,an ideal size for the cruising couple,yet big enough to accommodate an occasional cruising hitchhiker or two. All of these boats were once prominent offerings, designed by some of the world s leading naval architects and produced by reputable manufacturers. These boats are still readily available in the used boat market.

That's a good idea. I'm in Bob's hood, I should start a wild thread and see if I can get a nice meal out of it.

Yeah, you don't want to be caught on a cold night with a marginal wind lass.

Wow, I had no idea this was builder-supplied equipment! It must be a powerboat thing, since I see lots and lots of them on the adverts for go-fast boats.

Would you have some pictures to show me the difference between marginal and more fully-featured "wind lasses"?

I do perfectly understand that, in general, it's never a good idea to try to save money on the "wind lasses", and this is a classic case of "if you have to ask how much it costs, you can't afford one".
