Re: Looking at a Seidelmann 299

Porchhound - I have a 299. The only difference between that and the 30T is the interior set up. I am enamored with it. I have had a few buddies of mine sail it and all they talk about is how great...

Since this thread appears to be about forestays and staysails, I have a question also. I have a staysail on the boat. I also have the halyard for it, but on the deck instead of a solid point to...

Slip Away Cove is over 8 feet right now. The owner says it normally sits about 7 feet at low water. I think it'll be okay. He's a good guy and the price is great.

Knock down in the Atlantic

Knockdowns don't always happen in bad weather. I was sailing in the New River inlet in North Carolina. I was headed back to my Marina after a trip from up near Emerald Isle. I was in a 24' Neptune...

Brian- the last boat we brought from salt to fresh was a 1978 Neptune. She had a narrow beam and was heavy for a 24'. It did sit that deep. I was shocked. We pulled it out and had to raise the...

Nicholson- you're right. It does that in South Haven too. The interesting thing is that the lake was super small (6" waves, yes inches) before this flash storm hit. After it hit, it got big. We...

Glad you got it fixed. I have a question for you that is a little off topic. When I was in North Carolina with my last boat, I drew 2'8". When I came to freshwater in Lake Michigan, I drew 3'2". ...

Unfortunately the channel in SH doesn't allow me to sail all the way in. It blocks the wind and there's an inconvenient drawbridge. The tender did open for us that day though when he saw us...

I have noticed that the BFS in Lake Michigan is a lot different than in salt. It's harder to get a big sail in Freshwater. When we first came here from North Carolina, we went out into Lake...

The final destination is South Haven, but it's an untested boat. We wanted a halfway stop to make changes/repairs if needed. New Buffalo is halfway so that's where we wanted to stop. I'll...

Thank you for reminding me why I have a fiberglass boat. Wood is beautiful if it's done right, but way too much work for the average owner.

I agree that a sloop would be the way to go. Want your space? Get something that is 30'-35' and has a large beam. Seidelmann makes a 299 that's a 30' with an 11' beam. It has lots of space and is...
