Re: Jimmy Cornell's new Garcia Exploration 45

We would have been interested in this boat but for why in the name of god did they put twin rudders on an expedition boat. There is no protection on those two rudders how can you use it safely in...

Re: One amazing boat - grab her now

I did a quick survey of this boat last May for a friend. Not bad shape, the guy has done a lot of work over the years on her. If he is asking for 180K for it then I would say that is a good...

Re: Anyone ever sold at a profit?

we did it in 2008 which was a really bad year to sell a boat. Had sailed from Seattle to New Zealand 2007 to 2008. Our son decided he did not want to continue being home schooled and wanted to go...

Re: Give AIS a rest

What i found interesting on our passage down the european coast and near the shipping lanes is how often ships captains go at it with each other over the VHF. A lot of yelling and screaming about...

Re: The trend in new cruising boats....

Re: Interesting Sailboats

The Sirus 40DS looks pretty good. But looking at their website I noticed they use twin rudders some of their other models. I have no idea why anyone doing serious cruising in high lats would want...

Re: Interesting Sailboats

Winds here in Canaries have gone ESE at 25 kts over the last few hours so things are changing. Those boats headed NW are the big guys with full racing crew and can handle going NW up to 34 N to get...

Re: The ARC has started

Re: The future of the sailing world. Why are there so few young people cruising??

First time I cruised in S. Pacific I was 21 that's in 1972 or so. 50 % were young and fifty percent were old. It seems to be about the same today, nothing has really changed. At 21 I lived on a...

Re: The future of the sailing world. Why are there so few young people cruising??

Hi Sal,

I don't think most of the 20 somethings we meet come from wealthy families or have support from their families. They seem to know what they wanted and set out to save, buy a used boat,...

Hi Paulo,

I hear you, the boat seems to handle well going to weather but no 30 knots and 3 to 4 meter seas yet. Beam is best I can tell you about in lousy seas. I hope over the next 5 years of...
