Re: 8 boats lost.

Goodness that is a lot of lost sailboats and hopefully no loss of life. Where did you get the information? It would be interesting (and maybe educational) to get more details.

Re: Looking for boat suggestions...

We have a Pearson 31-2 and love it. Great space, great sailing characteristics (fast and well mannered) and the perfect size for two of us but with big boat features. They are getting long in the...

Re: Is a 32' Sailboat Over-sized for a Beginner?

My husband and I learned on a Morgan 22ft and after four years of loving it and daysailing at every opportunity we bought a 31ft Pearson 31-2 to live aboard 6 mths each year and cruise Florida. The...

Re: Thoughts on this one?

It is good that the seller is motivated, which means you can seriously negotiate. Despite inspections, that rigging is at or near the end of its life, so are the sails and bimini if original....

Re: boat for bahamas, but limited by bridge clearance and draft

Yes JimsCAL we were alerted to the stanchion issue early on, but appreciate you mentioning it. We are re-bedding all the deck hardware as the boat is 27 years old. Also took out the beefy...

Re: Thoughts on this one?

A 1999 Florida boat. Is the rigging original? Unless your surveyor is a qualified rigger and goes up the mast, pay for an experienced rigger to thoroughly check the rigging. A saltwater boat is...

composite toe rails

Looking to replace aging toerails on our Pearson 31-2. Has anyone got experience with composite rails? I know some of the newer production boats have them and they aren't as pretty as the original...

Re: boat for bahamas, but limited by bridge clearance and draft

For some reason when I originally posted this my computer didn't advise me when replies came in so I missed a lot of responses. But ironically the marina I was supposed to be at seasonally became...

Re: Pearson 303 question

We had the same problem with our Pearson 31-2 1987 (new to us).

We dropped the mast to deal with ours because we had to re-do all the original rigging (!), replace a broken piece of the furling...

Re: boat for bahamas, but limited by bridge clearance and draft

Aha. Never thought of a ketch rig- good idea! We also took another look at info on our bridge. Apparently it is 43 feet not 39 so that opens up a few more options. We added the Pacific Seacraft...

Re: boat for bahamas, but limited by bridge clearance and draft

We are sprightly snowbirds and currently put our smaller boat (22)at the local municipal marina which is very convenient and has very reasonable rates and great facilities (except the bridge!). We...

Re: Catalina 22 or 25?

Having owned a 22 for two seasons I think you might want to go and spend a couple of hours inside a 22 cabin. The headroom is the one thing that might make us change our boat! For daysailing it is...

Re: Is a marine survey really worth it for an inexpensive boat?

I am not suggesting to anyone that a survey be required for a cheap boat, but be careful. We bought our old very cheap boat subject to haulout showing little or no blisters. All was good until she...

Re: Boat cushions

We bought the Bottomsiders small back cushions to sit on in the cockpit. For about $60 we now have these supremely comfortable low profile (I think about 1.5 inches) high density foam "butt pads". ...

Re: Why does Tanzer 22 turn faster than Morgan 22?

Re: Why does Tanzer 22 turn faster than Morgan 22?

Well thanks for the input so far. Most interesting. I should have clarified that our friends Tanzer actually is the centreboard version and they have been sailing it without the board down, so they...

Why does Tanzer 22 turn faster than Morgan 22?

We were very surprised to find how much differently our friends Tanzer 22 turns compared with our Morgan 22 which is rated equally for racing, being similar displacement, rig size etc. Their boat is...

Re: new sails

I got a new Rolly Tasker sail for my Morgan 22 from Porpoise Sails in Sarasota, Florida at a better price than anyone else. Very happy with that sail for daysailing in coastal waters.
