I know when I fugured it out one day a few years back I was amazed kind of too. Its my therapy, passion, obsession, intellectual challenge, and serenity all wrapped up in one.

You of all should know we are never at the club on weekends we are anchored somewhere

Both...I am on a mission as you know...to get Donna experience. I am so fortunate she loves it too. I feel sorry for my friends whose wives arent interested. Makes it tough. Its amazing to see what shes learned in 7+ years. Like anything the mnore experiences, the more confidence she gets.

I have enjoyed every minute of it and am glad we are healthy enough to do so.

Do the math my friend

And this is just Donna and I and doesnt count when I go out by myself

30 weekends March 15 -December 15 Nine months actually has 39 weekends so I elimated 9. ( conservative, as we do a few 3 or 4 day weekends in there also) averaging 50 miles per weekend ( 25 mi each way) = 30X 50=1500 nm.

From Rock Creek (round trip)Straight line distances
Greys Inn Creek Chester- 53 miles
Cacaway obn Langford Creek- 59.4 miles
Shaw Bay St Micheals , Wye River ( through the Kent Narrows)- 64 mi. Long
way- 78miles
West/ Rhode River- 53 miles
Annapolis- 44 miles
Worton Creek- 33 miles
Still Pond- 42 miles
Betterton Sassafras -48 miles
Turner Creek Sassafras- 60 miles

Then we take a long three week plus trip to the LI Sound/ and beyond and back...(450 (900 round trip) mi just one way to Newport, RI , stopping at Cape May, Barnegat, Sandy Hook, Port Jefferson, Greenport and then Newport) We always havbe at least 6 or seven other stops adding at least another 200-300 miles rt). Last year this trip was closer to 1600 miles as we visited Montauk and also went up the Conneticut River to Essex.

Shawn, We have averaged 2500-3250 nm the last 7 years and we keep a log. Weve put 20,000 nm on Haleakula in the last 7 years.

Re: Build Quality: Ericson, Pearson, Sabre, Tartan

I am a bit prejudiced as I own a C&C 35 MKIII. The Erickson and the Sabre are equals in build quality, comfort, speed. Their sailing characateristic are similar. These boats make excellent cruising boats as they can be handled by a couple and are comfortable inside as well as safe outside for coastal cruising. In many ways the perfect size. I often times singlehand mine

When I purchased Haleakula 15 years ago it was between four boats the fourth was a Tartan 37, They are all beautiful racer cruisers. If you can find an C&C 35MKIII model there were hull mods which helped them in speed. Send pics

We average well over 3000 nm on her every year between the Chesapeake and a trip out the coast in the Atlantic to Long Island Sound and New England.

Find the one in the best over all shape.

T37Chef The OEM headliner was just faded and dirty, replacing was pretty simple and low cost = good value

The Pearson's are fine yachts, a marina neighbor has a P33, I love it.
Absolutely, to each their own. I really love dark woods too in general. The headliner is a nice way to brighten the space a bit...was your previous headliner dark?

The P33 has fairly similar lines to the older 34, but the layout in the 34 is more traditional. Both nice boats. I also was on a very well kept 1972 P35. The boat had a huge cockpit, but the narrower beam typical of boats of that era and the galley stretched across the companionway and stairs...not sure I could get used to people walking through the cooking area

Unless you are really into serious fiberglass work!

Eliminating two- to three footitis has been one of the criteria. I'm starting to settle into the idea of a boat in the 34-35 ft range (I like the Pearson 34), but my eye still wanders a bit to the T37. Obviously you love your boat and most T37 owners do, but do you find the interior a bit dark and gloomy with all the teak? I've not been on a T37, but I've been on a few T33 with all teak interiors and while the wood is beautiful, it also makes for a dark (and perhaps adds to the perception of a cramped) interior.
