Re: Cal 36 or Ericson 35-2?

Where is the Ericson faster - upwind or downwind?

The Ericson looks like it might be quicker upwind, or point closer, but I was wondering if the Cal 36 has an advantage surfing downwind swell. I...

Re: Ranger 33 or Ericson 35-2 for Offshore?

I'd think the Ranger 33 might be a good downwind boat, both in speed and tracking. What have your experiences been?

Down wind tracking with quartering seas would seem to be pretty important out...

Re: Ranger 33 or Ericson 35-2 for Offshore?

Bradhamlet... you owe Mike a beer! Bodhisattiva is a C&C 35 Landfall. Take him a beer and confirm I'm right... if I'm wrong then I owe you a beer.

I'd agree Mike is a great sailor, and a great...

I like reading these old posts. It is 2012 and today when I am wondering about the Yamaha 33 this Googles up... see, the stuff we write is more important than we think :) though the OPs are likely...

Ranger 33 or Ericson 35-2 for Offshore?

Hypothetical at this time... assuming equally good condition and price, which would you pick over the other, if offshore sailing were part of your plans? - and why?

I can certainly think of other...

Re: Bristol 34 or........?

It looks like the Bristol 34 has a lot of teak warmth in the interior, a Catalina 30 might pass you, but do you care? The Catalina 30 sails fairly well, but feels very antiseptic to me; I like that...

Just coming across this boat on the net - interesting design. Looks quite different than the earlier 35 or later 35.5 for example. It's a late 60's Halsey Herreshoff design... with a relatively...

Re: Any Newport 41 owners in the Bay Area?

I was just perusing a Newport 41 on Yachtworld (nice lines) and I didn't see a mast in the salon. Curious, is the mast hidden behind a bulkhead? This doesn't seem like it would be a design with a...

Re: Windward performance

I am wondering about the hydrodynamic effects. For instance, does pronounced tumblehome produce a lift to leeward? Or maybe it helps the leeward hull side "stick" in the water and reduces leeway?

Anybody cross an ocean with an open transom? Would you?

Seems like there'd be nothing to lean back on, and I'm not sure how you'd fix a wind vane. They sure do look cool, and obviously drain well
