Kaptajnseb Anyone have an opinion about the deck stepped version vs. keel stepped for a First 42 for trans Atlantic / Pacific passage, considering that there could be a 20k (USD) price difference (It seems like the prices differs a lot at the moment, maybe because of the unstable market )Ö? Is the keel stepped version a must or..?
Thanks in advance

Sorry for the delay, I just noticed your follow-up post.

Our yacht was originally offered, in 2001, at $120,000. We paid somewhat less. Since it was mid-winter, following the purchase we shipped the boat to Florida--Snead Island Boat Works. There we swapped out the original Goiot Roller Furling for a Harken, discarded the old multi-part block and tackle vang for a Garhaurer Rigid Vang (great move); replaced most of the running rigging with new, e.g. T-900 for halyards and lifts; added a Dutchman sail handling system added (tho' having it, I would go with the retractable EZJax we had on our prior boat given a do-over); had much of the original French wiring replaced; added a Microwave (the Origo Microwave cost me $40 usd wholesale--the cabnetry, an Inverter/charger, and all the rest to make it usable underway cost a heck of a lot more!). We replaced the instruments with new Standard Horizon units in a pod mounted above the companion-way hatch; added two charplotters; added a couple of sails; added new canvas work and the "very French" bimini; and, my wife added a Panda 4.2 KW generator (I refused to pay for that so she did but then, initially, would not allow me in the cabin when it was running the air conditioning when we were anchored out because I was such a cheap-skate!) Of course, there has been more in the 8 years since but...

While we have invested quit a good deal in the yacht, she has proven very reliable and sea worthy and most importantly, my wife feels safe and comfortable aboard, even in crappy weather. (And, she does all of the driving when we're anchoring or mooring--even in tight quarters--as the yacht's pretty easy to handle and it makes no sense to have a 100# woman trying to handle lines fo a 21,000# boat!)

FWIW...

svHyLyte There is a detailed review of the 1980's era First 42 commencing on page 32 of the following: http://www.southwindssailing.com/pdf...august2010.pdf . Note that there are a few typo's that were introduced during the publisher's editing process but they are not material.

FWIW...
