PS, have you looked at a Catalina 34? :)

Re: Yacht Clubs vs Marinas....which one to join. Are all yacht clubs the same?

Re: Documentation Vs. State Registration

If the boat is already documented, keep it documented. Mass doesn't require registration for documented vessels.

If it's not documented, it will cost more upfront to register with the CG versus...

Re: Which thread was it?

Forget to cut or not to cut. The mistake they made was how they lost the rig! The forestay popped in calm conditions and then they turned into the wind to douse the main. That is of course when they...

Re: Is Sailing an Elitist Sport?

This is a very good point. The sentiment that if it's not common knowledge it's elitist is very prevalent in our society.

I think it also depends what part of the country you live in. Where I...

Re: Boat Insurance Rate Increase

I don't mean to be negative, but there is another side to the Sandy story. Many people worked hard to save their boats and still lost them. I want to be clear I am not talking about those boat...

Re: Fishers Island

Are you looking for dock and dine? There's the Black Duck in Westport. Also the Crab Shell in Stamford, but I wouldn't go there only for the food. Norwalk has an ever expanding bar and restaurant...

Re: Oyster Bay

Oyster Bay Marine has the most reasonably priced mooring and the launches have the longest hours. It's around $30/night and about a five minute walk into town from their dock.

I'm pretty sure the "sailing lifestyle" has been used to market certain products to many people who could never afford a boat...;)

Re: Attention: Freedom Owners

Freedoms are well constructed boats that have come way down in price recently. They were built by Tillotson Pearson in RI where they were building J boats and Alerions during the same era. A lot of...

Re: Are Boats Built in the 70's Just Too Tired

These are both very good points to keep in mind as you look. I would also reiterate that a boat with new electronics and systems is worth only a pittance more than one without.

The great thing...

Re: Run-aground sailboat was stolen

All these guys had to do to escape was swim to shore in maybe 10 ft of water before anyone noticed?

Look out! It's the sailboat thieves who can't swim!

File this under dumb criminals.

Re: Looking for a home in NYC

I forgot about Hempstead! A salty bunch. Mostly older folks and all sailors. I've actually seen people doing complete refits to boats out on a mooring.

Stay in Mystic where there's wind! :)

Re: Salem Harbor???

Boats on the west side of the harbor used to get a lot of soot on them from the power plant. Not sure if that is still the case.

Re: 1990s Coastal Cruisers vs. Mid 70s Bluewater Boats

The biggest difference between boats of those eras is going to be the hull design, rig configuration, and interior layout. Those are the aspects that I would consider first because they will affect...

Re: Mystic 30?

Not slow at all!

Granted I had some current here. :) The boat is pretty quick in light air. Plenty of canvas as designed. I think the balance is ruined if you pull the yankee in favor of a genoa....
