Re: CS36 Merlin

I respectfully disagree.

The Traditional is a better built boat.
The "t" has a solid glass "overbuilt" hull and the Merlin has a cored hull. Although cored might be lighter and possibly stronger...

Re: CS 36 T vs. CS 36 Merlin

Research shows the CS 36 Traditional has a taller rig and more sail area.
This might explain the reason why the Merlin only rates slightly faster on PHRF ratings.

Thanks Vasco for the info and...

Re: CS 36 T vs. CS 36 Merlin

Interesting....the variation in advertised weights and actual.

It seems that the manufacturers under estimate the weight on most occasions.

At least it is better then the "advertised" fuel...

Re: CS 36 T vs. CS 36 Merlin

The advertised vs. actual weight of a Merlin seems like a huge discrepancy.
If both the 36 T & the 36M are similar in displacement the PHRF ratings would make more sense.
I would assume that...

Re: CS 36 T vs. CS 36 Merlin

Good point! Most boats are loaded up with the same amount of gear and the only choice is to keep it low and centered.

The shallow bilge is a drawback and the water will "slosh" over to the side...

Hi Jim,

Just curious if the CS 36T you previously owned was a deep draft 6'3" or the shoal draft. Any input on the difference in sailing performance (other then speed) between your CS36T and...

Re: CS 36 T vs. CS 36 Merlin

Hi Jim,

The CS 40 with longer W/L and more sail area is a faster boat then a CS36M.

The same ratings table lists the CS 40 PHRF ratings:

CS 40 99
CS 40 SM 108
CS 40 TM 93
CS 40 WK 105

CS 36 T vs. CS 36 Merlin

The CS 36 Traditional (Raymond Wall designed) and the CS 36 Merlin (Tony Castro designed) sailboats share the CS name and at a casual glance have some familial resemblance. However they are two very...

Re: Ontario Yachts Viking 33 advice

Viking 33/34's were built on the corner of Spears and Woody Place in Oakville Ontario.
I remember touring the manufacturing facility in the early 1970's.
Good looking boats then.....and now.
