Re: Bristol 35.5 Offshore and Liveaboard?

Hi Patti,
I looked at a Valiant 37 the other day, but it was a blister model and I could not bear the idea of a restoral effort only to have the blisters reappear every few years. I really struggle...

Re: Pearson Vanguard 33 reviews?

Most of what Jeff says makes a lot of sense to me. It's easy to believe manufacturing improved over a 50 year period, resulting in a stiff and lighter weight ship. As for framing, the surveyor who...

Re: Pearson Vanguard 33 reviews?

Sigh...
Jeff really dislikes Vanguards and he knows much more about sailing and naval architecture than I ever will-so think of this as more as a series of observations than rebuttal. I've lived...

Re: Pearson Vanguard 33 reviews?

Hi,
Just visited my Vanguard under her winter cover. Bunks are all long-I'm 6'1" and feel the bunks are generous in terms of space. there were two layouts produced, a standard layout with an aft...

Re: Midships galley? Pros/Cons

I live aboard a 32 Pearson Vanguard with a dinette to port and a starboard linear galley. Works great, gives a lot more cooking area and food prep and storage area than an aft galley in the same...

Re: Looking for Design Suggestions for my next boat

You'd be surprised. I gutted and renovated my current boat while living aboard. I'd rather not do it that way again. I did just find an Alberg 37 reputedly fully found and cruise ready with newer...

Re: Looking for Design Suggestions for my next boat

I should add that I would expect to put another 15-30K into the next boat beyond the purchase price. My plan is to leave in 3-5 years, upgrading and refitting as time and budget allow

Re: Bristol 35.5 Offshore and Liveaboard?

Mark et al,
Really appreciate the feedback-cockpits without bridge decks worry me, but are not complete deal killers. Engine access is though and I am researching further-some other owners have...

Re: A bluewater live-aboard for under $20k

If you are going to be coastal hopping and want to have a boat that can cruise longer distances on the cheap, a Vanguard that has been well maintained would be a good solution. Felicity is for sale...

Re: Need Creative solution for mounting bicolor light on bow pulpit

Re: A bluewater live-aboard for under $20k

You might consider a Pearson Vanguard. Great first boat. Good headroom, solid hull, ok sailor. Also, easy to singlehand conservative rig. Watch for core issues on deck, but relatively simple to...
