Capnblu You may notice that my original post was edited! and it appears that the only thing left was the word "Why?" If memory serves me correct, my comment was deleted by a moderator, and the only word left on my post was "Why?" I never did get an explanation as to why. Oh well. Harmon didn't seem to stick around. We looked at many Gulfstars, and I actually like them, However we went with a Tayana 42.

GulfStar 43 Mk II ketch/sloop

While I realize this post is quite old, I thought I'd respond.....The original poster was looking for a photo of a GS43, the responder, only responder "Can Blu" questions why?

The Gulfstar 43 was a very well built boat, better built than many similar today. The boat, rigged as either ketch, or sloop, the design sailed very well in a variety of sea conditions. A sailboat design that sailors sailing the boat found it did everything well. If you had a mild grounding, usually there would be nothing to worry about as these boats were very solid in construction. I as an owner of many sailboats, including a GS 43, can understand why someone expressed an interest for expressing praise for the GS 43 as a magazine article, if that was what the poster intended.........These boats, only 80 produced, were great boats, and worthy of mention............SB

Gulfstar 43' cc ketch

I am writing a feature magazine article on the Gulfstar 43' cc ketch and need a photo of one under sail. If you want your boat pictured in a regional magazine, please reply.
