Re: Quick! Talk me out of Purchasing a Sabre 30!

Update: Our offer was accepted, and thanks to conversations with the broker and surveyor (who it turns out has surveyed the boat for someone else this past summer), we know now a little more about...

Re: Quick! Talk me out of Purchasing a Sabre 30!

Thanks for the feedback! And for the perspective on engine power--a topic I know next to nothing about.

I agree that the speed/performance the Sabre offers over some of the other boats we've...

Re: Quick! Talk me out of Purchasing a Sabre 30!

Admittedly, cruising, not speed, is more important to us. Which is why it does pain a bit pass over Bristol. She's closer to what I originally pictured. (Also the Bristol has some gorgeous wood...

Quick! Talk me out of Purchasing a Sabre 30!

We're down to two boats from our list of prospects: a Bristol 29.9 and Sabre 30 (Series 1). I think, for a variety of reasons, that the Sabre is probably the wiser financial move, and I think she...

Re: Caliber 28 vs. Island Packet 27 vs. Com-Pac 27

Hey, thanks for the reply. I think we've narrowed down our list of prospective boats and the particular Com-Pac I had in mind got eliminated. (Though if our current picks don't pan out, we'll keep...

Re: Caliber 28 vs. Island Packet 27 vs. Com-Pac 27

Thanks for the response! We are still hunting. We saw the Island Packet, and like it a lot, partly because it is such a beefy, stable platform for a couple of newer sailers and a little kid with some...

Re: Home schooling for Cruisers

Hey CruisingDad! I never home schooled/was home schooled on board a boat, but I was home/self-educated from 6th to 12th grades. It can be a great experience, and it's always exciting to me to hear of...

Caliber 28 vs. Island Packet 27 vs. Com-Pac 27

In the past two years we bought a small house, had a baby, and revised our...

CD, thanks for elaborating. Perhaps what you mention about speed should knock the Tayanas and the other full-keeled boats down a notch or two. I've noted your recommendation on 15' knots being a good...

I am not myself knowledgeable enough to comment, but you might search through Sailingdad's post history here and at Cruiser's Forum. He sails a 40' Catalina and knows a lot about them.

I hope so too. We'll see where a bit more planning and realism bring us in the next two years. Own current downsizing efforts have been a success. So, we'll see what comes.
