Racer Cruiser

I''ve thought of a Tarten10. Slips in this area that are deep enough are getting difficult to come by. After talking to a broker here they are for the most part very poor condition with deck...

Buy the new hull/old sails. Sail it for a year and when you''ve learned the boat well enough that you are maxing out the old sails, then buy new sails. Otherwise you''ll probably spend the first...

which catalina 27 for racing?

Buy a boat with an outboard. If it is just for racing don''t even consider the inboard. If you look around there are tall rigs with outboards available.

The inboard boat is much heavier and they...

Fat Ass Sterns of New Boats

We wouldn''t have an IACC boat then because we would not be following the design rule. Perhaps you would have a faster boat upwind with a wider beam if you didn''t have to lose sail...

Fat Ass Sterns of New Boats

The rule may be different from IOR. I wouldn''t know because I''ve never read the IOR rule or have any reason to.

32''''x10''''8"x3''''8" w/board up

Doesn''t that guarantee the highest offer you are going to get is $35,500. One shouldn''t start negotiations with the lowest amount they are willing to sell for.

Catalina 30 - Tall or Short rig?

The standard rig Catalina 27 is also 4'' draft. The only way to get something other then 4'' draft is if you have a wing keel.

Over here in Lake St Clair all the Catalina 30''s are tall rig.
