Resurrected a pretty old thread here.

Nevertheless, the big advantage to a transom hung rudder is the ability to carry some type of spare or repair to do offshore. Tear off any keel or skeg hung or spade and your first worry is stopping any flooding that may come through the post/linkage. Then your remedy would have to be some jerry-rigged emergency system.

A couple Tartan 30s were for sale for $5K around NYC this summer - though I imagine that boats in Hawaii might be much more expensive.

Also, C&Cs. S2 would also be high on my list. Depending on where you live, an Catalina 30 tall rig might be worth a look.

S2 9.1 Hands down. the more I sail my boat the more impressed i am with it. After 4 years I am still discovering the virtues of this strong boat which sails high and fast and moves in light air. I have sailed it to bermuda and back, and up and down our East coast several times from New Jersey to Maine in all kinds of weather and waves. It is very stable down wind. If I thought there might be an achilles heel it would be the transom hung rudder. This is easily solved by replacing the pintles with a single rod axle.

puddinlegs This one:

1972 Yankee Sparkman and Stephens Design Sail Boat For Sale - www.yachtworld.com

or this one:

1988 Olson / Ericson 911 SE Sail Boat For Sale - www.yachtworld.com


For cruising only, the former.
For racing and cruising, the latter. (The boat will look much more inviting with cushions!)

I've always liked the interior of the older T30's with the engine amidships under the dinette seating, which opens up the quarterberth area for better sleeping and storage plus gives excellent engine access. The particular boat in your link does look nice, but check those portlights for leaks...lots of water staining on the wood.

P.S. - Not my boat, just a nice find searching the web.

blt2ski The issue I see with some boats, "IF" you are limited to 30' overall, many of the 30' boats listed, will be 30' on deck, and about 31-32' overall in length. SO you may need to look at boats that are listed as 28' boats. Such as the Catalina 28mk 2 which is just shy of 30' overall. My Jeanneau Arcadia is also 29.5' long, altho listed as a 30' boat. The ericson designs mentioned, many are more than 30' overall in length, and you may need to go to one of the 27 or 28' versions too.

olson34 Ericson 32-2 or E-29 (70's), Ericson 30-2 (late 70's), and Ericson 30+ (80's).
All are great Bruce King designs. A 30 has circumnavigated, FWIW.
