Re: Production Boats and the Limits

Yeah, as you probably know by now, I don't mind drama as long as things are kept fair across the board. SN's mods are really good about finding that balance. CF's not so much.

Anyway, good to see you around. Tell Keno Oysters are iceberg magnets, will ya? Heh-heh.

Let's hope Keno doesn't read that one! I'm actually good with your Oyster/Hinckley theory, esp. since it takes the suspicion off the Bristol guys. I hear those types can get pretty dang irritated getting passed under full sail by the bolt-on keel crowd.

I wasn't surprised to hear that Hunters have circumnavigated, just surprised that I hadn't been previously informed by the likes of you, RTB, Sailorboy & others. I guess I need to get out more.

Been lurking here on SN for awhile, and have posted a few times over the years. Lately there's been quite a bit more drama over at CF, however, so I guess I got distracted.

Polux must be missing you over on CF. He just found 2-3 more Hunters that have circumnavigated, incl. Mike Harker who did it on a Hunter 49 while singlehanded and w/o full use of his legs (he was partially paralyzed). Amazing story -- check it out on the Production Boats thread on CF.

This one looks nice, but they would have to come down 25% for my budget...

I am looking at some Garcias. Does anyone have an opinion on these as 'blue water cruisers'?

At half-a-mil for an 8 year old boat and $330K for a 19 year old boat - these definitely aren't "production boats" as most people understand that term. They are more limited-run, fast, expedition boats:





GARCIA PASSOA 47: French Metal Surfboard

Aluminum construction, daggerboards, lift keels, etc.

Cool boat for sure. But, I'll stick with my Hunter, thanks.
