Replacement sails - Hood''''s Vektran

The 1st part of your initial post also inquired about Hood Vektran sails, but I saw no other responses to that question. I bought a Vektran genoa for my previous boat and was very happy with it. ...

Elan

My first hand impression of Elan is that they are a modern, first rate boat builder, producing an above average product of exceptional value. They are a division of the same company that produces...

How heavy is too heavy II ?

The old thread you seek was under Gear and Maintenance, for whatever reason.

I, too, enjoy such debates, but the dispersion of issues here has become tiring. A more targeted analysis is far...

high quality yacht brands?

Paulo- If you believe “that a sailboat, except if it is a pure racer, is not only designed to sail, but also to live aboard. The quality and comfort of that life aboard and the autonomy of the boat...

How Heavy Is Too Heavy

My only question is this; would those of you with a 24000# boat, or those with 46000# even, expect a 48’ boat, or even 60’ boat of the same displacement, which certainly do exist, to behave less...

high quality yacht brands?

I have perceived that individual priorities are the key ingredient precipitating the wide variance of opinions about what defines a quality yacht. Some focus on tradition and are attracted to older...

J-40 for Long Distance Cruising ?

I just have to remark, this dialogue is fascinating! Keep it coming. It centers on the issues I have questioned most. It''s only the eighth round and countervailing positions have been established....

OK, how about the Nordic 40 ??

See now the Nordic 40 is also attractive to me and presents an interesting point of comparison with the J-40. Though the same length overall, the N-40 is slightly heavier (18,000 vs. 17,300...

Frers 41 vs Sun Legend

J-40 for Long Distance Cruising ?

more on old IOR boats

What can you tell from the numbers?

Sabre 386 or Tartan 3700???
