I've been told it's a Cabo Rico 36 named 'Bliss' hull # 6 built in 2007..probably one of the last ones built under the old management. They appear larger 'cause of the bow sprit..in other words CR measures(documents) LOD not LOA like other manufactures do.

Just curious when you where up at Dividing Creek..did you notice hearing the Turtle Farts?:>see:http://www.sailnet.com/forums/chesap...ump-night.html

kb3pwc Yes, Tempest. Since the chain only goes down that single hole, it means there is only a small plug needed for the chain locker opening when you go off shore as well. Certainly if we were taking a trip outside, the chain would be lowered to the chain locker below and the opening would be plugged. In the Bay, the deck locker on the bow makes it easy for us at this time.

cheers,

Leslie

Tempest Thanks KB,

I did visit the CR website, but it's pretty sparse on drawings and photos.

Yes..muddy chain etc, below was exactly what I was thinking when I saw the set-up,
Nice that you've managed to work around it. I guess you could always wash it down as it came up...but your solution sounds simple enough..

kb3pwc Tempest, the CR 34/36 only sends the rode through a hole at the windlass to the chain locker just ahead of the berth in the forepeak. We use that bow "bathtub" with the teak grates for our rode while we sail the Chesapeake Bay. We are able to load the 75 foot chain, 125 foot mega braid line in that locker. It is easy to wash down and means we do not get muddy chain down below to compete with the smell of freshly baked brownies. I always joked that we could use it as a bathtub if we plugged it's scuppers.

Our 34 has two pressure showers aft, with one at the transom boarding ladder so you can rinse off sea water as you come up from a swim and another hot/cold shower in the cockpit that for us is the preferred shower so we keep all that hot wet stuff outside. Course we use it at night, if you catch my drift??? When it is cold, that shower aboard is put to use, however.

Sorry we will not be able to get to the show. Am wondering what the CR message was in light of their new management.

Tempest The Cabo-Rico was a 36, It was a bit crowded when I boarded, so I didn't get to poke around as much as I wanted to. I couldn't see what they did with the anchor chain and rode. There was no access to the anchor/chain locker from the deck? They had two large opening hatches at the bow that opened to what looked like nothing more than shallow hose and or dockline stowage/lockers. So it appeared that the only access to anchor rode was from below. I'd be interested if anyone else explored this further.
( I suppose I could check their website)

I really prefer aft head/showers theirs was forward on the port side. The teak was nicely done. Lifelines were high as were toe-rails, I thought the deck/stantion fastening could have been cleaner. They custom make them, so I got the impression from listening to the salesman talk to someone that they would work with you on design. All at a price, no doubt.

aa3jy We wheren't planning on going to the Show..but after receiving a business advisory from the new management of Cabo Rico Yaghts by Covey Island Boat Works of Canada..we just might make the Monday 'Break Down'.

Boat show

Visited the show today. Seemed like less vendors than last year, but the day was beautiful and way less crowded than the usual Saturday or Sunday we have gone in the past. Usual bling boats were outrageous..Bylaw, Outbound, Passport. Like the 41 Gozzard as did the admiral. Ran into Mike and his wife as wel as had dinner with T37 and his wife at Joss. I think Shawm wil rate with Dave for both of us. was good, Especially the dessert of fried tempura bananas and red beans with vanilla ice cream drizzlled with honey. Was great to have dinner with them and catch up.

We actually found a mooring on Back Creek in front of Jabins which made the day perfect.

Tomorrow isoff to Dividing Creek on the Wye River

You have to take them off to get on each boat. Matching socks without holes in the toes would be good too.
I won't discourage folks who wish to try one of the local places near the show, but for me, it's Pit Beef at the Fleet Reserve Club. A tad pricy, but I assume its a fund raiser for the slimy Squids (Sorry, I'm an Army guy) and therefore the money supports those who have served.

Looks like I'll be there Saturday only and will try to get in some sailing on Sunday. My list of things to either buy or research is getting rather long.
