Re: Best place to buy a secondhand sailboat

There are very few boatyards around where those running the boatyard do not have some sense of the worth of a boat. No marina is going to give away a boat that has enough value that they could make...

Ericson 38-200 BUC Value

Could someone give me the BUC value range (BUC condition) for a 1989 Ericson 38-200, deep draft, 32hp Universal, Northern Pacific Coast? My subscription ran out and I'm resisting shelling out the...

Re: Wauquiez 42 vs Lafitte 44

Well said. Instead of deciding what particular model you are going to buy, decide what particular features you need, and then look around to see what available boats meet those needs. And be happy to...

Re: Anyone ever buy bigger or new and regret it?

Sure, there are some behavioral differences in gender that often hold true. There is also a huge amount of in-group variation. Some women take to roughing it way better than some men. Why make...

Re: Anyone ever buy bigger or new and regret it?

Uh, I was trying to be magnanimous when I implied that my opinion might not be worth much. It isnt hard to make statements sound silly when you take them out of their original context and apply them...

Re: Anyone ever buy bigger or new and regret it?

Some opinions are about matters of fact and can therefore be more or less correct or incorrect. For example; "So you admit your opinions are worth nothing." is an opinion about what I said that is...

Re: Anyone ever buy bigger or new and regret it?

Sorry, the line was just there for the taking. Hey, being between boats at the moment, I wouldn't mind at all having a Cat. But I don't think I'd be tempted to do something like go offshore in it....

Re: Anyone ever buy bigger or new and regret it?

To me it seems like more of an insult to Clorox bottles, but whatever boats your float.

Re: Sorry, you are about to get slammed. First question: bowsprit

I was looking at a Downeaster 38 once with bowsprit issues and was told then that they are very expensive to replace. Yours looks quite a bit simpler. As was said earlier, looks like a 2X12 in some...

Re: Fraser Built Sailboats

I forgot about Spencer taking over the molds. Have you heard anything about whether or not they laid the hulls up as heavily as DeKleer?

So it sounds like the chainplates were sometimes installed...

Re: Fraser Built Sailboats

One more question: Do you know when DeKleer stoppped building the 41 hull? The broker on the one in Seattle I was thinking about checking out thought that it came out of the factory around '92. I...

Re: Why do people still use depth sounders?

Yup, same thing. Except for the fact that they are completely different. If using an electronic depth sounder was comparable to using a lead line why would anybody take the trouble and expense to...

Re: Boat brands to stick with for ocean rough seas?

The fact that many people have done it doesn't mean they are the best tools for the job. People generally make choices based on the limitations at hand and not necessarily on what would be ideal if...

Re: Fraser Built Sailboats

Many thanks! Sounds like it doesn't have any special issues. I guess the main thing will be sorting out the owner builder variations. I suppose I'd be concerned about how (in some cases) thousands of...

Re: Fraser Built Sailboats

Hi Ray,

Having recently added the Frasier 41 to my potential boat buying list, I've really appreciated going through the information that you've provided in this thread. As it isn't a boat...

Re: Passport 42 designed by Stan Huntingford

Appreciate that. I've been vacillating between the Passport and something a bit more performance minded that would keep moving in light air. I was wondering about the quality of the P42 because they...

Re: Passport 42 designed by Stan Huntingford

Would love to hear more about your 42 now that you've had a few months to get to know her. Any little insight would be appreciated from one who is seriously looking in that direction. Thanks--
