Re: Sailing around the world in a small sailboat

While I love the little triton, the other question, in addition to living space, is how far are you comfortable leaning? Alberg drew up beautiful boats, but most of them were CCA influenced, and that...

Hi Everyone,

My name is James. I was on here a long time ago. I used to own a little 19' sloop, which I loved, lived on for a short while, got rid of when I joined the army, and missed ever...

liveaboard and coastal cruiser

Hello,

I came in here in my teens and twenties asking about the boat that would take me around the world. Well, I never got it. Instead I got myself into debt, jobs and all that other nonsense. I...

living aboard in Los Angels (Marina Del Rey) ?

Well,

I dug myself out of debt.
I got a job on the west side.
And I've learned that I'm not quite as keen now to travel the world and discover strange new toilets as I once was.

I am,...

TC and Eryka, Props.

Right now I need to remember to balance on this point. I know if I'm not careful, I can end up back in debt quick. I also lost my job, and quite frankly, I'm not sure if I...

John,

Thanks for the chance to educate myself. On you mentioning it, I looked up the difference between a double headsail sloop and a true cutter. It appears the main difference is that in a true...

Gozzard 31 vs Pacific Seacraft 31?

Hi,

I crew for a friend on a Gozzard 31, and it's a lot of fun. The cutter rig keeps upwind channel work "interesting", and it's not the best light air boat in the world, but she's stout, and I...

You nailed the other problem. All my experience is rental SOT's, so I really don't have any experience to speak of.
