Re: I wonder how hard I'm going to get hammered for this one...

Re: Oyster Lightwave 48?

Hi Robert,

Re: Oyster Lightwave 48?

Our last boat was 35ft centre cockpit and docking was ok with the two us, but certainly harder than in an aft cockpit in terms of getting the aft line on.

Re: A big Oyster abandoned off Spain

I'm going the fly against a sea of cynicism and suggest that Oyster is doing a lot right......( ok yes other than the whole keel falling off thing that started this).

Re: Oyster Lightwave 48?

If we bought a boat with a teak deck we would most probably DIY remove and replace with either non skid or Flexiteek.

That Farr 44 looks absolutely fantastic and pretty much 'cruise ready'. I am...

Re: Production Boats and the Limits

At the end of the day it is all it can be. It's a sailing forum - By definition it is just people talking boats on the internet.

If others think they are on some sort of crusade then jolly good...

Which is people on the internet talking about boats.

No more, no less.

Re: Production Boats and the Limits

And it was a catastrophic failure. Whatever was wrong, was very wrong. I don't think it was a slight crossing of the design line in the "endless quest to reduce weight and cost" :)

Re: A big Oyster abandoned off Spain

It is. But stuff all to say until a report is handed down.

So until then it's everyone's favourite game of bash a boat......

It's easy. Just pick a boat. google a picture and join in.

We have come across an Oyster Lightwave 48 in our search for a potential boat for a family of 4 to do some extended cruising.
