In May we bought a '72 Seafarer 31-1 named "Eagle". She is a beautifully maintained boat that was restored by the previous owner, who sadly had to give her away because of health issues. The 31-1 is a Tripp design. Eagle is hull #241 with tall rig (there also is a yawl version) and has a 25hp Volvo Penta.

She sails great and is very forgiving - which is really good for us as she is the first larger boat we own...

After a waiting much too long for her to get into the water and an adventurous delivery trip (the masthead swivel of the old roller furler parted and it turned out it was what was holding the master upright on it's hinged deck-step. After some time the hailyard on the Genoa gave way too, sending the mast down on the stern of the boat. It landed right between us in the cockpit leaving a deep dent in the aft pulpit. All of that while we were two miles outside of Thatcher's island in the fog. VERY lucky, that no one got hurt), we are now enjoying sailing her around Boston.

Seafarer 29 with swing keel

I have a S29 with swing keel that I've owned since 2000. I have a lot of information on the S29 saved as pdf and can email them if you are interested.

Seafarer 26 info

I purchased a Seafarer 26 (1 GM Yanmar) mostly for day sailing on inland water (TN River)

It has been difficult finding information on the boat and replacement parts. Has anyone found a replacement for the forward hatch? Mine has portions of the frame broken where the latch should lock and where one of the supports connects to the frame. I'm hoping to find something to replace it without having to take on a major project.

I have also been looking at leading the mainsail halyard and other lines aft. Any experience with adding blocks/organizers to the deck?

Thanks!

I was told from a nother Seafarer owner there is 2000lbs of lead molded inside the boat. Two bars on each side. I drilled 4"inches beside the keel and got lead shavings. I will be making my own keel out of a hot roll sheet of steel 2"X20"X96" at a cost of $350 at 600lbs

Seafarer Hatch

Thanks for the response. I haven't found the measurements for the hatch and wasn't sure whehter there were replacements available without cutting.

Mine is a fixed keel so I can't be much help with the swing keel issue.

I do have a manual (pdf) if that would help. Its pretty general.

We also have a Seafarer Yacht group on Facebook, which includes links to all known Seafarer websites. Would love to have any owners or perspective owners join. It's a lot easier to exchange ideas and post pictures, etc. I don't know if this link will get you there or not. If not just search for Seafarer Yachts on FB.
