Topic Review (Newest First)

MMA83D Last year was my first season with a Stone Horse. I really like the way it looks, and it never fails to elicit positive comments from people. It really is a charmer. I had a chance to cruise with it a bit last summer (alone) and got myself into 25 - 30 kts of wind. She stood up to it nicely. The boat is built like a tank and handles the messy stuff better than any other 23 footer I've sailed. Ironically it's also OK in light airs, although more modern boats like J-22's and J-24's are definitely faster. The relatively high wetted surface is the problem in light air, but the sail area to displacement ratio is good, so once she builds up speed, the momentum will carry you through the boat wakes and slop that tend to stop other boats. Going upwind is another weak area. I'm probably spoiled coming from more race-oriented boats, and I'm also sure I need to learn to sail the cutter rig more efficiently, but there have been times when I wished she'd point a bit higher. I'm not complaining, and I love the boat. I guess we're simply learning about each other. Next summer, new stays'l, a recut jib, and more time at the helm...we'll see.

arkriver1 I newly joined this site but have sailed and owned boats over the years. Happens that there is a Stone Horse for sale here in Arkansas. He's asking only $4,500. Haven't looked at it but sounds like a pretty decent boat. (I'm a fan of other Edey and Duff boats, like Dovekie and have been seeking one of those). Ask and I'll send contact # for this boat. don

Gary M I have liked their lines since they first came out. There is one in Tobermory Harbour.

Fair Sailing

Congratulations, listing looked like a great deal.

Harding Sails in Marion MA has made sails for all the Stone Horses built by Edey & Duff. I believe that your boat was built from plans provided by Edey & Duff.

Sail dimensions are as follows:

bljones You think you are the only guy who scours kijiji?

Good score, btw- If I could have found a way to justify another 23' boat, i would have been all over it.

Stubb Yes, I did. How did you know about it?
