Re: When you come the "Realization", buy it

Yeah, I'm keeping my eye peeled for an early model Seaward 32RK - I really like the wing keel/trailerable concept.

I know what you mean, I'm over 6' and weigh 245...or so. I used to refer to moving around the old boat as shuffling around like an astronaught.

It sure is different that when the wind picks up she just takes off instead of heeling all the way over! The major problem I have is leaving the boat, I seem to want to just hang around on it and enjoy!
I understand not wanting to leave it. We did a sail test and survey a couple of years ago on a H31 and when we raised the sails she jumped ahead, what a ride. Can't wait until Sat when we'll take her out for a good sail.
I too loved our Macgregor but it was just to small for a guy my size to spend below for any length of time.

Re: When you come the "Realization", buy it

Thanks Gary, Clarissa is really stoked about this one as am I. We looked long and hard for a boat this clean. Just got the paper work finished today so Sat we should get it out on the Bay if the weather permits.

Thanks all, I didn't want to post pictures before the T's were crossed and I's dotted. But Her's a few pics of "Realization" a 1983 Hunter 34. Including a before and after shoot of the sole being replaced.
