Re: Design and Performance

So much has happened so quickly in the world of yacht design and marine science, that most of the books on yacht design are hopelessly out of date if you are really concerned with performance as it...

Re: Help with Herreshoff H-28

A small correction to Christian's post. Cheoy Lee built Four different versions of the H-28. They originally built a fairly authentic original style wooden version. They then built a wooden...

Re: Help with Herreshoff H-28

I have some experience with H-28's most of which was on a wooden version built to the original design. For me it was love at first gust. While these boats are cramped and slow by modern standards, by...

Re: What make is this boat? Any ideas please

My best guess is that coral reef masquerading as a sailboat is a Baltic 39 or 42, with the 42DP being the more likely.

Re: I can't kick the old school

At the heart of this discussion is the contradiction between the purpose of a boat and the emotional attachment that we form with our boats. It is the conflict between the reality that if a boat is...

Re: Centerboard raising options?

Forget about the polypropylene on all counts. It's short lived, high friction, hard to secure, floating, jamb prone etc. 3/16 or 1/8 Amsteel would be the way to go. I would add a small thimble at the...

Re: Chris Craft Sailboat Question

I knew the early 1960's era Chris Craft 35s pretty well. They sailed quite well for a motor sailer but not so great compared to auxiliary sailboats of that era. That said with shoal draft for a 35...

Re: Interesting Sail plan...and boat

Back in the 1970s, there had been a lot of experiments with this basic rig. Usually the main mast (mizzen) was further aft than on this design. In reality, based on what the design world understands...

Re: I can't kick the old school

While many of your assumptions show that you don't really have a particularly accurate grasp of how large sail boats work, (i.e. when a ketch or schooner loses one mast, it usually looses two since...

Re: Do I even need a spinnaker pole?

Re: New listing for Fuji 35

While it is obvious that someone poured a lot of money into this boat, the asking price seems very high to me. The pictures show a boat in nice shape but with an incomplete restoration. The listing...

Re: Beneteau Halts Production?

Fleur de Mer, with all due respect, what your dealer told you just does not make any sense at all. First of all, while there may be a global teak shortage, as others have told you, Beneteau, like...

Re: Beneteau Halts Production?

Beneteau does not have a shortage of 'teak' and they are not stopping or slowing production of boats. I don't know what the deal is with Fleur de Mer, but I could not let this one lie without...

Re: What boat for a 10-15 year trip?
