Re: need help identifying a hobie type boat

This sort of question comes up fairly often. My advice is this: If it has a title is will state exactly what the boat is, if it does not then you don't want it.

Hunter Legend 40. 1984-1990. PHRF SoCal is 102. I don't have one, but always liked them. They do sail to their rating here, and have a large centerline aft berth.

Re: Coastal sailing without depth finder?

Dabnis made an excellent point. Get a fishfinder: they are cheap to buy (Walmart has them) easy to install, and use very little electricity. Another really big consideration is where you will be...

Re: Worst Sailboats Ever!

The MacGregor 25 was a sailboat, period. The 26x was the powersailor with a big outboard and more of a powerboat hull. I have never owned a 25, but remember looking at them when they were new. ...

Re: How do I handle insurance claims?

I did not mean to imply a morality problem. I was pointing out a very real liability problem. This sort of thing is not at all clear cut. The other party's insurer may not see fault as so easily...

Re: How do I handle insurance claims?

Let's review: YOUR mast on YOUR boat fell and damaged YOUR boat, and in the process injured another person. You are uninsured, and yet you are sitting there expecting a big payout from someone...

Re: standing rigging replacement

You are in San Diego. There are several rigging shops there, and you could probably find one that you could coordinate the timing with your mast removal/yard time. You don't have to do it by mail. ...

I sold a boat that the owner wanted delivered several years ago. He paid in full first, and then I delivered it (by water) about 60 miles. My son and I did it, and it was a pleasant sail, and I...

Re: what is this 21' trailer sailor?

As Ward H was saying, if the boat has a title it will say what it is. If it does not have a title don't spend another second even thinking about this boat.
