You bet I will. I'll admit to being a digital caveman...not exactly savvy in all things electronic (yet).

Re: WiFi Connectivity On-Board

WILCO. Once we get connectivity we'll be monitoring our usage VERY closely. Fo now, I have no experience with any of the on-line services, hulu, netflix or what ever else is out there. If netflix...

Re: WiFi Connectivity On-Board

We were looking to using something like NETFLIX to watch a little TV - one source told me that a 'rule of thumb' was one GB per hour of viewing. Two one hour TV shows (PER MONTH) would bust 2GB in...

Re: Seeking recommendations / advice

Unfortunately the Nordic had some maintenance issues we were not willing to take on at this point so we had to withdraw the offer. Now looking at yet another Perry designed boat down in Gig Harbor.

Bob - I'd love to come by and shake your hand! I'll do some digging and see if I can get your location and contact info - don't want to drop in unexpected.

Re: Seeking recommendations / advice

All right, I know I've been warned about putting too much stock in the 'numbers', but I've always used the capsize ratio as one of my threshold benchmarks. Anything over 2.0 doesn't even get a...

Re: Any suggestions...???

Aware that this is an older thread, but it parallels a similar search I am currently making. Also recommend reading the thread "buying a cruiser'.

Still researching....

OK - I started a thread a couple of weeks back called "full keel" and got some pretty good input from a lot of really great people.

Based on some of that input (and an ongoing conversation I'm...

Re: Full Keel

Very perceptive, Sir. I guess it's just like the houses we live in (or lived in) and the cars we drive - our choices is going to be driven by a mixture of what we can afford, what serves our needs...

Re: Cruising Worlds Top 40 Boats

Definitely a consideration. However, I believe their are Rolls Royces out there that are absolute lemons and there are probably some Yugos that still run perfectly. Breeding counts but I think...

Bob,

I'll have to admit, I'm a little linier in my thinking and, although I don't think I obsess over the numbers, with little actual experience and a very wide variance in the often anecdotal...

So, not wanting to expose my ignorance too much, the lower the PHRF the better the boat will perform in light air? Is there a corrolation between the PHRF and Comfort Rating and Capsise Ratios? ...

Re: Full Keel

Ours was a straight ketch (vice a cutter-ketch) - hence no staysail. We used the mizzen occationally but, frankly (and I'm ashamed to admit) I suspect we flew the mizzen more for how it LOOKED...
