OK, guys... sorry to confirm the conspiracy theorists, but as this thread was (predictably) going off the rails and the original question appears to have been answered it's now closed.

Re: Jon Eisberg's Passing today...

Re: Production Boats and the Limits

Manufacturers will rarely comment on forums, it is not usually in their best interest, and the Craig Smith debacle is a prime example of how not to contribute in boating forums.

Re: A big Oyster abandoned off Spain

The latest from Oyster:



Oh, dear... How will Oyster be able to "compete" with Bavaria, Hanse, and Hunter if they revert to their old methods of attaching their keels ?

Re: Production Boats and the Limits

Pizza slice boats like to speed,
for comfort you'd better take heed.
They throw you about
till your insides are out
Their design is based mainly on greed.

Old boats are designed for the sea...

Re: Refurbishing CCA boats

I read the thread. You guys seem to have this covered pretty well.

I'll say this. In the early 60's no one knew much about "engineering" laminate schedules so they compensated by building thick. I...

Re: Bristol 34 - blue water boat?

I think that you missed my point. Boats like Columbias, Pearson's and Bristols of the 1960's were not built to what were already understood to be a proper standard of that day. There were builders...

Re: Bristol 34 - blue water boat?

In the 1960's, I think that some of the European yards were way ahead of the US on these types of quality control issues. LeCompte's ads of the era did a great job of explaining these kinds of...

Re: All in one?

There is no standard for radar, you must use radome of same make as the MFD.

Navico (B&G. Simrad) has radar that is called Broad band
The others have HD radars

Re: Bristol 34 - blue water boat?

I think that Pearson and Bristol evolved as the industry changed. The early 1960's Pearsons were pretty crudely built by any standard. The glass work on our Vanguard was really sloppy. We hit a rock...

Re: All in one?

I'd assume most modern MFDs can do this (maybe not the iPad part). My Raymarine plotters can do this (e7 and a-something). There are a bunch of options but you can show AIS/chart/Radar all overlaid...
