Re: Pre-Launch Preparation Process

Thanks for your input jimgo and Minnewaska. I am in FL, so we are preparing to put our vessels back in the water. Part of me wants to wash and wax now. She does get dirty on the hard. But I am...

Re: Shannon 28 versus Caliber 33

I know they are both good boats. Does the 5 feet more in size in this instance provide more seaworthiness/safety? If I am 100 miles offshore and get caught in nasty seas, all else being equal,...

Pamlicotraveler,

Unless you are a broker, how do you get the "actual" sold prices of a boat? If such a resource were available, it would sure make things a little easier for us shoppers!

Actually, there are a few CD 31s for sale on YW. They are not the 30MKII designed by Dent. They state they are designed by Alberg. I was just curious if anyone knew how the 31 compared with the...

Didn't Cape Dory also build a full keel 31 footer in the mid 80s? It was beamier than the 30 with more headroom and other amenities. I'm pretty sure it was also an Alberg design. I hear very...

Thanks Tommays. 20+ years! It may cost more, but if you get twice the life span, it should be worth it.
