Re: Coast Guard rescues 4 "sailors" off Charleston...

I don't get it. Why go out in the ocean when a tropical storm has been reported? Stay safe and just postpone the delivery!

Re: If I had to get one new sail, what would it be?

I used to fly a 155% Kevlar when I had my Oday 22. I used that and a full main in over 10kt winds more then once. I used to be able to keep that boat standing up pretty straight most of the time. My...

Re: Singlehanding a 41' Hunter DS?

@Networker I started sailing an Oday 22 and just recently jumped to a Hunter 33. I skipped the "middle" boats in the high 20ft range. I dumped money into my 22 and got it really nice then sold. Had I...

Re: Sailboat missing off CA coast

Excellent theory and I never thought about that. I would not be surprised if this was indeed true. So it was all confirmed a hoax?

Re: Anyone sailing Lake Pontchartrain?

In that case, that leaves me out too if I get the H33 I am looking at with a 5.3" draft and wanted to go there. I guess the 37 ft Irwin that is there may have got in somehow but must be trapped now....

Re: Best small boat for cruising the Bahamas?

I am still debating if a Hunter 33 would be good for a trip from New Orleans to Bahamas. It has a 10,600 lb displacement and I also wonder if the 5.3" draft is a bit too much for the Bahama shallows?

Re: think i found a boat

Awesome and welcome to boat ownership ;) I've been having an Oday 22 for a few years now and it has been a great boat. If the 19 is just a smaller version of that, you will be happy.

Re: Is it possible?

I see no reason why you couldn't, as long as you check the weather and marine forecast in the area.
