Re: Info on Liberty 28

I consider the L28 to be one of the finest small cruisers there is. Too bad only 30 were built. The only problem I've had over 35 years with this boat is some delamination on the top of the port...

Re: Info on Liberty 28

If you dropped the bumpkin and did a split backstay, adding an Aires would be no problem. I use a Monitor on mine.

Re: Info on Liberty 28

Mine is #6. #4 went across the Atlantic and back 10 times that I know of. Does your 28 have a bumpkin? The early ones did, If I recall, and later went to a split backstay instead. He also moved...

Re: Info on Liberty 28

I haven't left yet. Right now the refit is winding down and I expect to get out of here in the next couple of months.

The French have modified the stay time fro 87 days to 18 months. Since...

Yup, I have a Monitor. I wouldn't trade it for anything either. So far. 7,000 miles with zero problems and steers a better course than I can myself. Tradition has it that cruisers name their...

Rudder

Congratulations on purchasing what I consider to be one of the finest small blue water cruisers ever built, and one of only thirty. It is neither foam nor plywood. Mine (#6) has an interior of what...

Just off the top of my head, I'd say a Catalina 22. Nice boat, lots of 'em, active class association, good resale value.

I do two jacklines, one on either side of the mast, down the center of the boat. Both are flat straps, not line, which can roll under your feet and cause mayhem thereby. They clip to a fat Wichard...

I saw the date, but thought it might be useful for anyone who is looking for a great little bluewater cruiser. That is, if they can find one of these, since they are rare. So far as the 32 years...

Liberty 28

Hi!
I've been living aboard my Liberty 28 for 32 years, and cruised some 25,000 miles with her. In my estimation, this boat is one of the best small cruisers ever built. I have hull #6 of the 30...
