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
