Re: Ted Hood Gulfstar 40

To kmp1284...I know this is a reply to old posts, but I was wondering if you ever found out more about the Ted Hood Gulfstar 40 and if you ever bought one. People throw out such erroneous...

Re: Can I sail to the Bahamas with NO experience?

To LauderBoy,

I could not agree with you more. There is no need to live like a slob, no matter how poor you are. All one needs is a little class, which most people would state is something the...

Re: Can I sail to the Bahamas with NO experience?

I missed out on the ad nauseum debate. Au contraire as to any jealousy toward Minnewaska, I say more power to him. And while I agree that climbing aboard other people's boats is not cool, I sense...

Re: Can I sail to the Bahamas with NO experience?

Minnewaska, Wow, that is a rather harsh appraisal of the video. I am not sure if you are just ragging on the video itself or the entire experience. The video is certainly not going to win any...

Re: Can I sail to the Bahamas with NO experience?

Check out this video on Vimeo. This small band of sailors started with what appeared to be very little sailing experience and you might find their experiences interesting. There is, however, a...

Re: Proud new owner of a Cheoy Lee Offshore 41

Thanks for your prompt reply. As expensive as the shipping was, it sounds like a good price. I figured 10K! Was the insurance just for the trip out west, or is that your boat insurance for an...

Re: Proud new owner of a Cheoy Lee Offshore 41

Did you ever receive a reply as to just what it cost to transport the Cheoy Lee 41 from the East to the West coasts? Some "real" information on such a move might be helpful to me, and others.

Re: Proud new owner of a Cheoy Lee Offshore 41

Hello, I am also looking at Offshore 41's and wonder what you can now add as to how well you like the boat, what is really good, what is not so good, and what you have had to done to repair and...

Wauquiez 38

It looks like most, if not all, of the Wauquiez boats that I have seen pictures of do not have opeining portlights. How is the ventilation on these boats? I know the 38 has two large hatches, one...

Re: Beta Marine - New Hybrid System!

It would seem that someone who wanted a generator on their boat could no doubt spend a huge chunk of change and get their propulsion AND their generator in one package. I have no idea what the costs...

Re: Boat loans?

If you own your own home, it might be cheaper to take out an equity line of credit for loans up to 25K or so. If you are refinancing your home in order to take advantage of today's low mortgage...

Re: What sailing knife do you use?

I use a Myerchin Offshore Rigging Knife with a wooden handle. Why? It is beautifully made, it has a fid, a small shackle key, and my girlfriend gave it to me for my birthday. It appears to keep an...

Re: Real-Time U.S. Wind Map

Re: What goes in your ship's log?

Re: Pricing a 35' sloop on the hard for 5 years

It depends upon what the asking price is and how the boat was maintained over the years on the hard, but remember that a boat that has been on the hard for 5 years will age and deteriorate more than...

Re: How bad does this keel separation look?

The Catalina smile. Early boats did not use SS keel bolts and they WILL rust. The good news is it not too expensive to repair the forward bolts. The yard can cut out a notch in the keel, drill in...

Re: Thoughts on the Boat Market (A Rant)

Re: Is it crazy not to get a survey

Regarding Minnewaska's post. Great points. How the boat looks tells you how the boat was maintained. I love it when a broker tells you the owner was "really into the maintenance of the mechanical...

Re: Is it crazy not to get a survey

Interesting topic and I am by no means any kind of expert, but I thought I'd toss in my experiences on the subject. My first sailboat was a Hobie 16. Surprise, I didn't get a survey! Turned out I...

Re: Perfect 35-38 foot 'go anywhere' boat

I agree with the notion of not living out of the saloon. When one narrows one's boat choice down to boats with two dedicated sleeping cabins, the list becomes much smaller, at least for boats under...

Bloodhunter, I looked for your photo gallery for some pics, but could not find it or them. I am looking at a S&J 45 and would like to learn all I can about the boat. Thanks, Jon

Question for Faster about Bayfield 36s

I figured a Bayfield 36, with its full keel, would not back up very well, but what about sailing to weather? I've read they're a boat made to sail a reach, but can you tell me any more of their...
