Re: Baba 30

If you know what you are doing and have a nice 140% genoa I think you would be amazed at how the Baba 30 does in light air.

Re: Baba 30

Baba 30 is a glorious looking boat but SA/D and D/L numbers say it needs a good breeze to move well. I'm in the Chesapeake which has light air in the summer so I don't think it's well suited for this area. Boy are they beautiful, though.

Baba 30

We are jealous. The Baba 30 is probably our favorite boat on our current short list. Beautiful, beautiful boat.

Controlled Jibe Never sailed one, but to my untrained eyes, it's one of the most beautiful boats ever designed. It's our dream boat; maybe someday when we have a bit more money.

tom3215 .... you cant really go wrong with a Baba 30.....always going to hold its resale value. Consider
a Tashiba 31 if you can find one in your area and price range. A little stiffer boat, and a little
faster. Nows the chance to beat down the price....economy is bad , etc. etc. = )

happy sailing

puddinlegs Chuck, are you looking at the one in Seattle by chance? If so, it looks nice, needs a bit of bright work love if you have patience, time, or the check book for that sort of thing. \

Yes, I know that guy. Charming fellow if you catch him on the right day.
But from personal experience I can tell you those days are few and far between.

I agree. Go so SA/CA and look up Sonadora's thread on rebuilding his Baba 30. He knows the boat well.
