Re: Offshore 33 owners

just got a '79 offshore '33 sloop - first boat for me!
No problems so far except for an overheating volvo-md11c.
Any hints on getting to get through wind when tacking are appreciated! Although I think its just do to my inexperience.

Wondering where on web to find more info about Offshore Yachts?
Any groups in the Chesapeake area? Specifically around Solomons Island?

Re: Offshore 33 owners

I have not seen a web site centered around the Offshore 33. Congratulations, I have been on one (cat ketch) and really liked it. Considered buying it, and my still.

Re: Offshore 33 owners

Congrats, I have a cat ketch but it needed substantial refit when purchased. I just had it hauled and am installing new engine, rigging, shaft log, prop etc. so have not a had a chance to sail yet.

Since the Ketch is different form the sloop I can not comment on tacking, I was told that with the Ketch, if you spill your beverage you are doing it wrong. lol

Re: Offshore 33 owners

Hi Fellow owners of Offshores!
Bought my 1980 Cat Ketch (wishbone boomed) last September. Dinghy tow from "off the hook" about two miles to marina. I have been looking for more info online for her as well. Looks like "orphan" as we have been assigned as "Make" of boat is quite true! No worries here... I enjoy a challenge!
Haven't been able to sail her yet but have spent countless hours on clean up and learning more all the time.
She will be "home" and restored to once again sail away from the coast of SW Florida soon!
