RickBowman I do not like the swept aft spreaders. Been there done that. It limits how far the boom may extend outboard due to main sail chaff on a following sea.

camaraderie Thanks for the update Ted...I like it a lot...I see some Tayana there...Some Valiant there...a bit of Gozzard. And getting rid of the double ender look is smart I think. With a sailaway price in the mid-400's it won't be for everyone but at least there's another fine boat choice for bluewater now.

Updated Info On Cruising Yachts Page

Here's some color renditions on the Cruising Yachts Page:


And also a preliminary spec and pricing sheet.

RickBowman Ted,
I'm with you about boarding ladders. They are a must. Have you ever noticed how many sailors that have permanently mounted boarding ladders keep them tied up with line so that they can't fall open? As I wrestle for my life after falling overbaord that is the second worse thing that as I look up that I would want to see. The first is the boat merrily sailing away on autopilot.

I've got her stored indoors at the yard north of Chicago redoing the brightwork.

Previous owner let it go and then used some Cetol over the poorly prepped surface making it look worse (IMHO). So I've joined the ranks of the Varnish-istas... but don't want to start another Cetol vs. Epifanes thread here.

Other projects? Plenty I'm thinking about, but realistically, we need to get some more time on her first. The only exception to that being items I consider safety related... like the lack of a boarding ladder... but I should start another thread about that.

Vasco [QUOTE=camaraderie]Perry designed the Saga...[/QUOTE

Saga turned to Tony Castro for their last effort. He's not noted for cruising designs. Although I have one of his designs (CS36Merlin) I think Perry is a much better choice.

RickBowman Ted,
How are you storing your PS this off season? Do you have any plans or current projects?

arisatx Rick - nah - no serious considerations on the P38 at this time, we're still enjoying our PSC37. But it doesn't hurt to daydream - esp. for us Lake Michigan sailors over the winter months, now does it?

Not sure what happened to that 377. I had heard they were trying to show it at Annapolis, but I take it that never materialized. Saw some of the mockup photos on the site, but I notice some of the references to it have been removed recently. I agree, I can't imagine they will go forward with both the Crealock 377 and the Perry P38. For that matter, I wonder if they will continue production of the venerable Voyagemaker 37 . Oh well, I got mine.

RickBowman Hi Ted,
Are you considering the P38? Perry is an awesome designer, but weigh out of my LOA and BIB "Bucks in Bank". A 10,000 lb bulb keel with a 16' me there. Thanks for the posting; found your links quite interesting. Pray for our troops!
