Oh man, senility strikes young. Not only did I find the previous post mentioned, but was shocked to see I had even posted a comment!! Oh well. At the time I had not read about Rawson's much and this PS article peaked my interest in how similar, and yet different, it looked from my Gulf 32.
Thanks for the input anyway. I do have interest in contacting Mystic Seaport and getting plans for my Gulf 32. Just for fun, if not too expensive.
Sort of related to comments on both these posts, I am somewhat dismayed to see a lot of Gulf 32's come through Friday Harbor here and most of them are not well loved. In fact, I've seen at least 4 or 5 transient Gulf's and all but one have been pretty trashed. They make such good liveaboards, that I figure they get used that way by non-sailors. Shame, because she moves so well. When you see one in fine shape, they are really distinctive and beautiful! Then again, judging by the disrepair of the typical boat around here, maybe Gulf's aren't any worse off.
For me, besides the joy of sailing and traveling and adventuring, having a boat is an opportunity to love a beautiful and useful thing. If I had a WHOLE lot more money I would still want to do most all the work myself, and if I had a WHOLE lot less money I would not be paying $300 month to moor a broken hulk. Takes all types...
