Re: Pros and cons for a double ender/Canoe Stern

from memory the Alajuela only had 2 cockpit drains towards the front of the cockpit. It also seemed like the cockpit was larger than that of a Tayana 37.
Otherwise a pretty cool boat with fullest...

Re: Pros and cons for a double ender/Canoe Stern

I do realize that you probably were not exactly using a stop watch (in F10) at the time, but roughly how long would you say it took for the cockpit to drain?

Maybe the Alajuela was the exception?...

Re: Pros and cons for a double ender/Canoe Stern

An open transom has a larger sectional area than any scuppers.

I just wonder how many of the "small cockpit, quick drain" proponents have ever had their cockpit...

I once sat in the cockpit of an Alajuela 38 that was on the hard. The cockpit was full with rain water and melted snow. Someone had...

Re: Interesting Sailboats

Bob,

My post was not directed towards you. In fact it was not directed towards anyone in particular. Just trying to say that variety/diversity is a good thang.

Yes, there a definitely fewer pointed shoe boxes, in fact there is fewer of everything.

As for Paolo's blog, I liked to have the pointed shoe boxes right here in a forum that I frequent.

Me thinks that Paolo is correct about the geography. Last time I checked Canada was located in North America, no?

Re: Is "sailing performance" all in our heads?

I do not think that cruising cats are that much faster than monos.

We sailed a 24 hr. passage on our 40' mono together with a 38' Lagoon cruising catamaran.

Winds where on or aft of the beam...

Re: How not to make a tricky harbor approach...

Nope.

Jon is right.

If you are motoring at 5 knots you are going 5 knots through water regardless of current. In the example above, you are doing 5 knots thru water with SOG of 10 knots.

Re: Is it time to boycott the Bahamas?

I see your point.

Maybe they should have a staggered fee system?

- 48 hrs = free
- 2 weeks = $50
- 6 months = $300-400

$300 is a piss in...

Re: What Is A Boat Really Worth?

Why reproduce already existing data (soldboats.com) that is quite accurate and contains a lot of historical data?

Just ask a broker for some comps from soldboats.com
