Re: Not impressed with Samson Ultra-Tech line

I've been using something from Samsan called Tech 12, that has lasted on a spin halyard for 20 years!!!! (Spliced to some other line at the clutches).

Re: 220 buccaneer

But wait. This is the Buccaneer 220 your talking about?
Pretty sure the Buccaneer 220 is a Gary Mull design. Nothing to do with a Columbia 23.

Re: 34'Bene vs Columbia 9.6 meter...who's gonna win ??

These boats were actually sold as the FIRST 345 (in US and Europe)
The earlier FIRST 35 (based on a 3/4 ton design) was also advertised as the BENETEAU R/C 35. (most of the ones shipped to the US...

Re: Joshua Slocum

'The Voyage of the Libertade' is another gem.
Allegedly the original Libertade somehow made it's way to the Smithsonian Museum, but then was subsequently lost.

Re: Sailing Anarchy Seized By Fed's??

Obviously not the government, but it also doesn't seem likely that this is their own little spoof. In any case, it will be a topic for discussion, once they are back up and running again.

Re: Ana Capri or Anacapri?

Could elaborate on this. Obviously this boat wasn't built in great numbers with mysterious origins. If you could shed some light on this it would be greatly appreciated.

Re: Seafarer 37

Your right. I don't think that many were built. It was introduced just before Seafarer went out of business.

Re: Cortez 16

Just curious..
Was wondering how you got that number (106).

I spoke to one of the original partners in the company a while back and he couldn't remember.

Thanks.

Re: RC 44 Series

Impressive.
The difference is, the AC boats would have never raced in that much wind.

Re: Van deStadt 29

Not as well known in the US, but E.G. van de Stadt is among the most esteemed designers of the 20th century. He did many design for steel. So you're pretty safe with the 'brand'.

Re: whitney system/30

That came from the manufacturers ad in 'Yachting' Magazine, (around 1968 - I'll try to find it because there was a photo in the ad.)
I don't remember seeing it mentioned in the S&S master list of...

Re: C&C30MK1 Sail identification

Not sure what you mean.
But my post wasn't meant as a reply to, or criticism of yours.
It didn't even see it until after I had left my own.

Re: Choosing the Perfect Boat

I would just KILL for that French Class 40 (with what appears to be a lifting keel, though they don't specify ). I could even keep it at a slip where I am.
