Re: Best metal sailboat information

Seriously?

For two years now Brent has continually regurgitated this same old dog shite. He has now used this exact jibe 20 - 30 times on here.

Couldn't he have been banned permanently?

Re: Autopilot selection advice

We looked really closely at the CPT. I am a big fan however the cost of getting one down here to Australia made it a little prohibitive.

Re: What boat for a family circumnavigation?

I will have a look.

I have always liked the Deerfoot's, the Dashew's are amongst my early cruising/sailing heros. I fear though they might sit outside my budget.

Re: What boat for a family circumnavigation?

There is a Nordic 40 for sale here about 1/2 mile from my mooring which is rare.Not too many of them around here.

Re: What boat for a family circumnavigation?

I had thought the water tankage a bit limited, one of the boats I am considering in Panama has had additional tankage fitted and the In Mast furling removed in favour of lazy jacks.

Re: Looking to buy a boat in Australia

I wonder if it is an ex charter boat. My suspicion is probably.
That wouldn't stop me buying it though.
