|sailstein||The bristol 27 is a full keel boat that might be ok for what you want though it does have some draw backs for a live aboard|

|puddinlegs||I think most were responding to Jeff's small 'r' rant about old boats. I missed the original post date as well. Just assumed since it popped to the top it was relatively new. Oh well...|

|CharlieCobra||I too posted before looking at how old the thread was. Especially after seeing Jeff barked at and the rep of the little ankle biter doing it...|

Up here in Canada Whitby boat works made a boat called a Whitby folkboat, same hull as the Contessa 26 but with a taller cabin, for more standing head room

Like Oh Joy, another S&S designed one off from Knutson.

This doesn't looks like a "fin keeler" to me. It's a 1963 CCA rule boat
Full keel, cutaway forefoot- Not a "skimming dish" with a fin. That "innovation" came later.

Well here's a 1967 FinKeel S&S designed sloop built by Chris Craft in 35 knots of wind on the bay Mothers Day.

And, it sails very well.

listings for just about anything to give you an idea what's out there. Plug in your numbers, budget, location, etc... voila. Research is your friend. For full keel, the Alberg 35 is a nice choice. Pearson Tritons from the same era (28') can be found in conditions from s to shinola. Contrary to what Jeff says, there are good boats from every era out there. The older you go, the more careful you're going to have to be. On my old dock, there was an Islander 36 (IOR influenced...IOR MkII?), an Alberg 35 (CCA), and S&S 34 (Early IOR). These 3 designs have extensive racing and cruising histories. All three on the dock are very well maintained. Though a bit larger than you're probably looking for, they prove the greater point that not all boats from the 60's and 70's are terrible by any means. Not as fast as more recent boats, but one of any of the above would make a great boat. I'm not buying the deck stepped mast deal either. You're telling us that everyone from O.Stephens, B.Farr to C.Schumaker and M. Mills are wrong? There are plenty of good structural reasons for keel stepped masts... too many to go into in the length of a short post. Opinions are fine, but as a moderator, it would be worth taking the time to explain both pros and cons of your ideas. Sorry Jeff.
