Re: Mirage 29, a make over.

Yikes! For a moment I thought I was looking at our boat. We own a 1987 Mirage 29'. They're nice boats, and sail nicely.

Re: I Think I Found The Right Boat

Not necessarily. Before we bought our boat, we sailed our sailing co-ops C27s regularly. A Yamaha 9.9 outboard pushed them along quite nicely.

Re: I Think I Found The Right Boat

We sailed C27's with a sailing coop for 13 years before we bought our boat. They're great boats but $9k seems awfully high. I've seen C27 listings in PNW for around $5k

Jan de Groot is based out of Vancouver; and I knew him when I worked as a broker. He really thought that blisters were overrated.

We knew our boat has blisters when we bought it. Our surveyor...

Re: AC 34 - What If?

Very good points.

I must admit that when I began to watch the finals, I was pretty disgusted with both Catamarans and Larry Ellison. To make things worse, Oracle had lost the first two races, and...

Re: AC 34 - What If?

After seeing Faster's vid about foiling moths (another thread) and a vid on production foils for Lasers, the age of the traditional mono-hull may be past. Those boats are incredible.

Re: Guess What Day It is

Arrgh!

After driving my wife batty with jokes about it earlier this week, I'm embarrassed to say that I completely forgot. Thanks for the reminder! :o :D

Excellent points.

After reading this thread last night, I swore I would have nothing to do with watching it. Ended up watching it anyway.

Re: Catalina 22 good starter or waste of money

I think that C22's are great boats, depending on what you want to use them for. That said, my eyebrows went up when I read that the OP plans to cruise with five people.

The sailing co-op that we...

Re: Lost my rudder!

First, I'm really sorry to hear about you losing your rudder. Vacations are something that we plan for and look forward to for some time; and this is not the way to end one.

Second, kudos to you...

Re: Why do skippers yell?

Bingo!

Once upon a time, I yelled. I was a new skipper and very insecure. My wife and son both disliked going out with me.

More experience, culminating in a stint as a paid sailing instructor...

Well said, Paul.

I would also add that for the 2 of us, 30' meets our needs. Further, going bigger means more boat systems to learn and more $'s needed for improvements. :eek:

That is truer for larger boats (30' and up). There may be more room for smaller boats because everyone is moving up. You need to check around.

Next to our own boat (which we love!), I would...
