Yamaha 33 as offshore cruiser?

I''m thinking of buying a Yamaha 33. If anyone has experience sailing this boat in offshore conditions, I''d like to hear their comments.

Yamaha 33 as offshore cruiser?

I have limited experience with the Yamaha 33 in onshore sailing that would suggest that they would not make very good offshore boats. The Yamahas were intended to be IOR racer/cruisers and based on my experience with their sailing characteristics they would make a nice coastal cruiser but would not be ideal offshore. They do seem to be well constructed and sail well in moderate conditions. They get a little dicey in gustier conditions.

Thumbs up a y33 is a y33

Yamaha 33's are Yamaha 33's - whether the sailing was done in the 90s or will be done sometime in the near future makes no difference. Winds and seas and the boats that sail them could care less what year it is! Our Yamaha 33 "FellowShip" has continued to cruise non-stop with new owners in Australia... so yeah, a Yamaha 33 can be a good cruising boat ! Remember, the PERFECT cruising boat does not exist.

My point was that you are responding to a question that was asked in 2002 and the person has not been back since. Your message is for no one.

thread maintenance

Cam

A couple of weeks ago I tried to contact sailnet and get them to give me the job of thread janitor. I offered to go through all these old threads and "lock" them so responses could no longer be made to dead threads I also offered to delete user generated threads(not the articles mind you) more than 5 months old or so that have had ZERO responses to them (there's actually quite a few) and so pose no gain for the site they just take up dead space. I could also delete blatant spam as I read throught these older threads

I'm not asking for compensation - membership is enough , I would do it because I've got the time and I would like to help out

Maybe you could go to bat for me ?
Or not !

It's just something I think should be done and I have the time and inclination to do it.

Have a great day
Kevin

LOL... Considering that all two of Soyokaze's posts were in 2002 and on the topic of Yamaha 33's... it is likely that he's not reading sailnet anymore... might have bought the boat and gone bluewater with it... and disappeared.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Right now, Sailnet is having some moderation and other technical staffing problems IMHO... moderation has been pretty much non-existent since Cam dropped out.

Oh I most definitely do not want to be a moderator not after the C****yJ*e fiascoe and what is currently shaping up with SailLikeTheWind but I don't mind going afterwards and doing a little swabbing the decks
