If it''s good advice to stay away from Hunters, I wonder how Hunter got to be the largest manufacturer of cruising sailboats in the US.

Costs of Sailing merchandise

Jamestown Distributors has a limited range of items. Great on fasteners, paint and painting supplies, hardware. What they do have, in my experience, is priced lower than even Defender.

You will have a sail as far as Norfolk, From there on, I motor most of the way with, depending on the wind, an occasional sail up for motor sailing. There are a few times you could sail if...

Finesse-it works well but shouldn''t be necessary for the overall boat for a number of years (depending on your local conditions). I suggest you contact the builder. Perhaps they did not apply the...

Annapolis

I have sailed an IP 38 and have many friends who are happy with their IP boats. I don''t think it''s quite as black and white as your post implies. If you''re into performance sailing, I wouldn''t...
