kaluvic Yeh...that sounds better.

I can see the attraction to sailing your own boat in these far away places.

I've never been a fan of bare boat charter, I need to know my boats systems, capabilities, characteristics before I put my family on board and set out to sea.

Could just be that I'm a slow learner!

camaraderie kaluvic...you are correct...the $7.5k includes the boatyard work to haul the boat, remove the mast and keel and load into the container at both ends of the trip.

kaluvic I think it’s a clever idea and would be a fun design project.
Its not for me...I like more traditional proportions, but I think there is definitely a market for it.
I think the estimation of $7,500 to ship a 40ft container is way over the top.
4 months ago I shipped a 40ft HIGH CUBE container from Fl. to Yemen for less than $5,500.
Shipping these days is way down compared to then.

How's the Joy Boat coming.....on hold till spring or are you getting some work done?
Slowly, what with the limited time I've had to work on her. I need to pull the sticks and tent her so I can pull the decks and cockpit. I had two partial ribs I had to cut out and wanna get to the hull under the cockpit without obstructions to verify it's solidity. All of the planks are good, even below the bad rib areas. I'll end up drilling holes in ash strips for the plank fasteners and rebuilding laminate ribs. I'll fill the holes with epoxy when the new ribs are finished to lock the old plank fasteners in. I don't see any issues with flex or alignment because the planks are locked in by the C-Flex hull shell.

Once I have the cockpit out, I'll pull the Perkins, rebuild it and throw it back in. I can then reset the cockpit, new decks and button everything back up and KNOW she's solid below to the keel. All in all, good fun.

Tenuki,

The Dana 24 moulds are up in the PacNW with Seacraft Yacht Sales. They are working on completing their first new Dana.

However, it would not surprise me if at some point the Dana gets reunited with the rest of Pacific SeaCraft in North Carolina.

baboon I think this might be a good boat for a retired couple who could spend a month or 3 at locations all over the world. The shipping costs start to factor out ok the longer you spend in one location, especially compared to chartering. You end up with a well made craft with no learning curve and the equipment you want ready to go. My biggest concerne would be damage. Sliding that hull in and out of unforgiving metal containers on inflatable rollers seems iffy. One slip, one time, and suddenly your expensive new boat needs a month in some foreign yard for repairs. Most workers doing this have probably never done it before as it is a pretty rare bird. Shippers are also notoriously carless with our stuff, with damaged goods being very common overall.
