Re: Frers F&C 44

Re: How important is 6 feet?

Yea, New York is expensive but not that expensive! May 1 to October 31. Off season is a lot less in the water, about a quarter of that.

Re: Minimum to make her ocean worthy

If you are just going to go out for an overnight or two I don't think I would worry about a life raft. A life raft is going to cost (if you buy new, and I would not buy used) as much as your boat is...

Re: Fischer Panda Generators - Dangerous Defects

Re: Budget, livingaboard, boat size..

Keep in mind most of the boats on sailboatlistings are already sold. Make sure to check dates on the listing and anything over a couple of months is suspect.

Re: exchanging experience...sometimes not even the hard way

did you get that from Greenwich? I contacted them but it was more work that I wanted to get involved in and thought they wanted way to much for her. Beautiful boat though. Have you seen this website?...

Re: Why We Sail -- "A New Boat"

Nice, I really liked your old boat, but this one is bigger and better so good for you. Ericson 38 was in the top of my boats when I was looking. I contacted an owner of one that was for sale several...

Re: Ideal size of holding tank?

I think the answer is at least one gallon bigger than what ever you put in! Seriously you will fill up just about any reasonable sized tank no matter what. Miniwaska's boat was designed to have a 70...

Re: Budget, livingaboard, boat size..

I thought that too, but according to sailboat data they are the same beam, but it does seem to be carried a bit further forward and back. They may have the number wrong in the 323 data though.

I think what you need is a figurehead. Something like this:

You could have it cast out of bronze it is pretty chafe resistant!

Re: Budget, livingaboard, boat size..

I agree, and the layouts seem to have different advantages. The 323 seems to have a much nicer salon and a dedicated chart table, but the 35 seems to have a bigger head and more galley storage, so I...

Re: Budget, livingaboard, boat size..

No I think he was being sarcastic that the boat is 8 to 9% bigger.

Re: Budget, livingaboard, boat size..

The P35 is a quite different boat than a 323, The 323 is a much more modern boat (more of a fastish cruiser), but the 35 is more of an old school cruising boat.

Re: Sewing Machine onboard... Which one?

No, just more that I don't really think the story they tell seems realistic. I do agree that the sailrite machine is likely a better machine, but at close to twice the price it well should be. I...

Re: How important is 6 feet?

Since you are asking I am guessing this is your first boat, but difference between a 40 foot and 46 footer is likely going to be quite a lot assuming comparable type of boat. Likely close to double...
