Re: Money no object

I'd keep my boat (Swan 41). But would update the electronics and get all new sails, dodger, bimini and maybe even a new paintjob.

Re: About to buy, nagging engine issue - seeking advice

My Perkins 4.108 definitely needed 12-15 seconds of glow if it was cold.

Re: Cruising on $10k a month.........Powerball Winner

Re: Catalina wing keel or fin keel?

Go for the fin, unless you really need the shoal. The difference in performance is substantial.

Re: Beneteau First 310

Shoal draft is a cruiser's option. My experience is that whatever adjustment that you get in your rating will not be enough. Not many shoal draft boats are competitive in PHRF racing. The First...

Re: westsail 32, that bad?

Yes. But last post was five years ago so OP may have made up his mind by now.

Re: Dufour LaCoste 42

Not sure why the draft would be a problem anywhere on the east coast. Here in Rhode Island, for example, the water is deep. Maybe you mean down south.

Re: What liquor and wine do you stock on Board

I drink bourbon in the winter but for some reason do not associate whiskey with sailing.

Re: Is she bluewater? Interesting story to help with these questions.

We all love our boats but I think it is border-line irresponsible to encourage people to go offshore in a lightly built coastal cruiser, particularly one that is 25 years old. Catalinas and Hunters...

Re: Show me your sailboat's interior

Wow. Very nice. And it looks like you could fit two of my 41's interior inside your 41's interior.

Re: Why buy a brand new $150,000 sailboat?

This goes without saying. Even if I won the lottery I would never buy a new sailboat. 150 maybe, but not new.

Re: Slow Racing or Fast Cruising?

Sometimes I feel like the weight thing is overblown (at least in PHRF racing) and it may seem more important than it is because the guy who strips out his cruising gear also tends to be the guy who...

Re: Slow Racing or Fast Cruising?

We cruised and day-sailed for years before ever even trying a race. Each year of racing we did slightly better until we were very competitive. As a result of no longer being terrible and having an...
