Let me know when you are ready - recent upgrades and we now rate a -100.... oh wait .. uhmm thats when the sticks are attached to asphalt...

Sigh...

Race any day - Round the county missed it this past year - will try to do this one....

Smack - you'll never get a good stirred Martini on a good race boat - it will always be shaking!

blt2ski Besides that, there's 7 or 8 other First 36.7's around here in different places, they all got together at the NOOD's last may, not sure, but hopefully they are doing it again this may at the NOOD's! They rate about 80 around here. Could be fun!

smackdaddy But dude, I'm all about the shaken martini. If it ain't got panache, it ain't got the daddy, if you know what I'm sayin'. Anyway, I need another 3-6 feet to feel like I'm in the zone.

Sincerely,

Puffdaddy, Smack Puffdaddy

Thanks for the advice. Good stuff, dude. I've seen a couple of boats that I like - one of them being an Oceanis 39.9 (mid '90s), and the other being an Irwin 43 CC (late '80s). I like the layout and comfort of the Irwin, but I definitely want a relatively tough boat that's fun to sail too. As for the Catalina, my C27 has so much freakin' freeboard I'm STILL having to pee on the rail to get it wet. And that's just wrong. So, I see what you mean.

The wife already said she'd follow me anywhere, so I'm gonna hold her to it and get whatever the hell I wanna get. heh-heh.

I was just glad to hear that the Benes don't suck.

CD - that Giu comment was completely out of line. Midlife - school the guy.
I definitely don't think Bene's suck, but they do have a bewildering assortment of models of nearly the same size that made it hard for me to focus on a particular model. I, being a natural born redneck, also prefer the "hammer and anvil" feeling of the Catalina, that Gui alluded to, over the "Bond, James Bond" feel of the Beneteau cruising line.

When I was shopping, I'd review the PHRF numbers on the Bene's and then go look on Yachtworld to see if I could find one in my price range. Some of the fastest mid-size benes just smack you in the face the first time you see them. I swear its like one of the design parameters was to use at least one of every shape and size of portlight and hatch ever built. For newer boats, if it was in the budget and the spousal unit would go for it, a Bene 36.7 would be a heck of a lot of fun I think. It seems Beneteau has gotten over its spasm over the top styling, for styling sake.

If your wife is down for giving you complete descretion in what you buy and you want a pretty boat, take a look at a Sabre 36. Faster than most of the Benes and better built to boot.

Hey, I just had a good buzz going at the Goat. I didn't get drunk till we hit the Goslings at the Fairmont.

Cruisingdad The economy is bad, Giu. Save a buck. TJK may even have a coupon for you if you want.
