Re: Modern day blue water sailboat?

RD makes a great point. Displacement is perhaps a better measure of size unless you are paying for slips, panama transit, or yard fees. However, water plane and hull form may also need to be...

Re: Modern day blue water sailboat?

Once again agree with you. Given the trade offs probably better to get a bigger used boat of good solid construction then go with a smaller boat capable of planning. Even voyaging in cutting edge...

Re: Modern day blue water sailboat?

Paulo once owned a one off built for an OSTAR. Original owner got off the boat put it on the hard and went home. Got it for a song. Loved the boat and singled it a lot. Cruised it with one of my...

Re: Modern day blue water sailboat?

Re: Modern day blue water sailboat?

Once again Jeff is spot on- That's the fundamental dichotomy. Weight is the enemy of speed. Weight means creature comforts. Elimination of weight requires construction methods that devolve into...

Re: Modern day blue water sailboat?

To the OP. In that size range would add a Bob boat. Robert Harris not our BP. The boat is a Vancouver 27. Sweet strong craft. Still as usual Jeff hit the nail on the head. All the small boats I think...

Re: Money no object

tdw- would you do the bestewind in grp or AL? I like your taste. Probably Paulo wouldn't as it doesn't have a fat butt and isn't too dependent on form stability. Would you do a lifting keel or fixed?...

Re: Modern day blue water sailboat?

Re: Hours on watch. Navy research.

Much of above is in synchrony with human physiology but would point out how different the demands are in long ocean voyaging versus shorter duration near shore or offshore passage making. I think...

Re: Hours on watch. Navy research.

Would note if doing coastal jumps of 2-3 d think about it differently. As long as you allow 2d ( young adult) or 1d ( old fart like me) for " recovery sleep" it's amazing how much you can put up...

Re: Interesting Sailboats

Paulo what's your critique of the eagle 54. Basically the same feel. Very narrow boat. But unlike Frankie long overhangs and a bit of a transom.

Re: Interesting Sailboats

Thought about this but with cost and service contract prices coming down still think having dedicated SSb on the boat and portable satphone that can be thrown in the ditch bag makes more sense.
