Re: Rawson 30- A Blue Water Cruiser?

Woody:
I'm inclined to agree with Jon. Don't give up any sail area. But quit worrying. Your bowsprit will help balance the boat. On the other hand, 12" off "E" is not something you would ever...

Re: Rawson 30- A Blue Water Cruiser?

Woodvet:
I'd have to say that 26 to 35' would not be the range I would pick for world cruising. I'd probably say 37' to 43' for a couple with the Valiant 40 being the ideal.

I think doing the...

Be careful. If you are too complimentary I will say you are "pissing in my pocket", It's an Australian expression. I too went to HS with another Bob Perry too. Whenever I'd get into...

Re: Rawson 30- A Blue Water Cruiser?

I would not add lead. The boat is heavy already. Weight is always the enemy. Why add more? Your hull form is a not the type that has much form stability so just live with it. But "breaking off" the...

Re: Can anyone recommend a surveyor in the Seattle area

I also recommend Reisner and McKewen. I have known both of them for over 35 years. I would request Todd Harris as your surveyor. Todd, in my opinion, is the best there is. He's hard to book but worth...

Re: Guidance with Laser2 Purchase -Please help!-

The Laser 2 is a good boat. My son Spike spent many hours racing one. I would guess and it's just a guess, that if the boat, sails and trailer are in good shape you might offer $2,000. Make sure that...

If you are talking about a "normal", ballasted 30' keel boat with reasonably healthy design characteristics it would take a real pro to "capsize " it in anything short of a full gale with...

My teenage design efforts

I ran across an old tube of drawings marked "historic 1" in my archives. It contained some drawings I did between the age of 16 and 20. It was a very weird feeling to look at the old drawings and...

Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

When I designed FRANCIS I had in mind a nice, all round, good mannered vessel that would perform well in all conditions. If I had thought that in our typical tide rip/chop there would have been some...

Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

We could easily double the tankage on FRANCIS. There is lots of vacant volume in the boat. We don't need to weld a vice to the deck. There is not much need for welding on Frankie.

I chose SPRAY...

Re: Baby seat in cockpit

Do not put a baby seal in your cockpit.
The mother seal leaves the pup on the beach so she can go hunting. The mother will come back and retrieve the pup later.
Leave the baby seal on the beach.

Re: full battens for a monohull cruiser?

It depends on the level of performance you are happy with. I do not subscribe to the idea that "this works for everyone".

I would never want a main without battens. I care about sail shape. But...

Re: Moving the mast on an I-28?

1" will make no difference in anything so long as the steel pad beneath it is still taking the load.

Re: Golden Gate 30

Not all NA's are as arrogant and cranky as I am. I think they like to be called and recognized for their contributions to the sport. I had no doubt that Chuck would be happy to talk to you.

If memory serves those are all Chuck Burns designs. Chuck worked for Gary Mull before going on his own. Chuck is a very good designer. Why don't you give him a call and ask him about the boats. He's...

No I won't take that into consideration. Too nebulous and can't be applied with any guaranteed consistancy. I'll just assume we are talking about boats loaded as most mom and pop boats are...

It doesn't matter what scale you use. You just need some "units".
They don't have to relate to any real scale. They have to relate to each other.
