Re: Winter storage on Great Lakes

Sounds like a good plan PorFin. I'll ask yard to drop rudder when it's in the slings. They have more torque wrenches/sockets in case bolts are frozen. Maybe if rudder repair is done right, it's not...

Re: Winter storage on Great Lakes

Thanks guys. I went from having a lot of questions and uncertainty, to having a good plan in three days. I'm now looking for indoor unheated storage that I can sail into, as long as they let me...

Re: Winter storage on Great Lakes

Thanks all. If surveyor is correct, only area of above normal moisture readings ("relatively moist") is the rudder. But so far, no signs of delamination based on testing with percussion hammer. I'll...

Winter storage on Great Lakes

Is there any long term difference between storing a boat on jackstands instead of on a cradle? I bought my first boat in July and want to do what I can to keep it a long time. It's a 1985 S32. I know...

Re: Sabre 30 vs Sabre 32

Thanks Sandusky sailor. Glad to hear you think the Sabre 32 is a good design for cruising Lake Erie. I was looking at a Catalina 30 for sale in Sandusky Harbor Marina last week. Hope to be sailing...

Re: Sabre 30 vs Sabre 32

Thanks guys, I appreciate your help. I'll be traveling this weekend to look at Sabre 30s and a 32. I read the Good Old Boat review on the 32, but that's the only review I can find on that model. I'll...

Sabre 30 vs Sabre 32

I can find reviews on the Sabre 30, but none on the Sabre 32. Numbers look similar between these two models, but can't find info on why Sabre stopped the 32 after 4 years of production and switched...

Thank you all for your help.
souljour2000: I like those older designs with longer booms and narrower hulls because I think they were more realistic. Most people probably don't sleep more than 3 or...

I'm just starting to sail and I'm 60, so I'm not thinking about racing. Right now, navigating and sailing to different places on Lake Erie is all I care about. So first boat will likely be 28-31'...

Easy to solo sail is important to me, but sailing on Lake Erie also requires hull form that won't pound in a chop and a rig that sails in light air. Would the Olsons sail better on Lake Erie that the...

I like boats with the traveller back by the helm. Being 60 years old and just learning to sail, I'll be content with a boat better suited for cruising not racing. Sail 4 and sleep 2 is enough; no...

Short chop hull form

On Lake Erie, are there more light air days than better sailing winds?
It's seems risky to buy a boat without sailing a water first. But I'm 61 and not thinking of buying a dingy before I get a...

That's an interesting idea Marty. I have more than few boats I like (Sabre 30, C&C 30, ...) except for the fact they have cabin top sheeting. That SO 32 track suggests that if boom is long enough,...

Brian--I didn't realize that the sheet (not just the boom) could also cause trouble. This may get me reading more about preventers and boom brakes.

Brian-- I'm hoping some sort of bimini can be customized around most layouts. It may be a few years before I'm ready for a dodger. But I think I'll have better luck learning to sail on a rig with a...

I appreciate those single handed tips puddinlegs; that's a lot of helpful advice.

My preference would be a tiller, but I wouldn't mind a wheel if the traveller and primaries were reachable without...

Thanks Denise, it will be interesting to see if anyone comments on doing that kind of project. I'm just starting, so I'd probably only consider it if it's been done a lot to a particular model. Maybe...

any 30' cruisers with end boom sheeting since mid 90s

There are a lot of classic plastic 30' cruisers designed for easier single hand sailing. But i can't find as many built since the late 90s, other than expensive daysailers. Are there any 28-31'...

Everything I've been reading about for the past year was a pipe dream--until I found this forum. I don't have any family or friends that sail. I hoping to learn enough here to get started.
