Re: Tartan 3700 issues, PLEASE!

There may be exceptions, but what I've seen in general are two types of boats:

Boats that are 1 to 3 years old and have hardly been used. They were purchased by someone who didn't know sailing...

Re: Tartan 3700 issues, PLEASE!

I'm not sure if Tartan is really a unique class. Jackett's new design, the Blue Jacket, has received a PHRF of 51/72. (ref here) (http://www.ecsa.net/PHRF/CouncilActions2013) and there are similar...

Re: Tartan 3700 issues, PLEASE!

I'm considering buying a new boat and the Tartan 3700 is on my short list. I'd suggest you ignore quite a few of the comments in this thread and focus on the current condition of the company, their...

Re: Which batteries for us?

You're doing well to consider all the factors. It's not just the batteries, it's how their features work with your electrical system and the way you use the boat.

My considerations were a little...

Re: My Dog Won't Pee on the Boat

In my experience the trick to making this work is using that same piece of astroturf at home. Lay it on the grass or wherever the dog normally goes and guide the dog directly to it when he/she...

Re: Sailing Alone Better?

Phil,
Very nice story. I had a similar event when I was sailing with my sister and her 10 year old son. I told him to take the helm while I went to the foredeck to bring down the asymmetrical. It...

Re: Sailing Alone Better?

I found the same thing when I first started sailing 20+ years ago. You'll find it very enjoyable to sail with sailors, if you can get to know some. Nothing needs to be explained, knots are tied...

Caribbean day sail rentals

Anyone know of Caribbean resort areas where one can rent a boat for day sailing? I know there are a zillion beach dinghies for rent, but they generally don't want to you sail out of their line of...

Re: Best Coastal Cruiser under 37 ft

I'm currently in the rather absurd position where value and cost really don't matter much. I can afford to get what I want, even if it makes no financial sense. No debt, no dependents, and sailing...

Re: Best Coastal Cruiser under 37 ft

I don't think I'd do a custom build. When you look at a boat that has been built for years, like a Catalina 30 or Tartan 3700, you'll see little design tweaks every year. Those come from the fact...

Re: Best Coastal Cruiser under 37 ft

But the sail cover is not a 60 second job. I've seen some systems that appear to have the sail cover in place while sailing. It's in two pieces, to port and starboard. Do those simply zip up once...

Re: Best Coastal Cruiser under 37 ft

It does seem a bit small, but I an also sympathize with the idea that bigger is not better. Somehow I got the idea that Najad got wrapped into Halleberg-Rassy.

Re: Best Coastal Cruiser under 37 ft

Najad: Good call on the Najad. I knew them for large center cockpit boats. The 355 is pretty close to my profile. Nice boat.

C&C: Very much like the J boats. Very few compromises toward my lazy...

Re: Best Coastal Cruiser under 37 ft

I understand the objections to furling main, but from a practical standpoint all the little flaps, clips, and snaps that are required for Dutchman are a pain. A proper mainsail will go faster in a...

Re: Best Coastal Cruiser under 37 ft

The CS 40 and Northstar seem like pretty old designs, with few of the comfort cruising boat features of the last 10 years or so. J boats are great and they have made some cruise-able models, but...

Re: Best Coastal Cruiser under 37 ft

I see there is a 2005 available on Yachtworld. With 1000 sq ft of sail area, 19000 lb displacement, and 42 ft LOA. Do you really think that could be single handed as easily as my 36' Catalina with...

Re: Replace Sails

While there is a used sail market, it is strongly impacted by the demographics of your boat. If you had a S2, J boat, or some racy thing then there are 10,000 guys out there with the same boat who...

Maybe I'm too old, or not tough enough

I'm fascinated looking at the 40'or near to 40' boats. Norseman 400, smaller Swans, Caliber LRC40, all very nice. I just think they might be too big for me.

One of the criteria at hand is the...

Re: Looking for premium coastal cruiser 39 LOA or less

I spent some time on one at a boat show when they first came out. I don't remember what it was that I didn't like about it, but I didn't think it was constructed as well as Tartan or Island Packet. ...

Re: Looking for premium coastal cruiser 39 LOA or less

I always thought of Caliber as blue water, but I suppose it would work fine for coastal sailing. I think the 40 is too big for me to single hand easily under all conditions, but the 35 might work....

Re: Looking for premium coastal cruiser 39 LOA or less

I'm just guessing, but I think the numbers for a new boat with 15,000 to 20,000 lb displacement might go something like this:

Middle Class production (Catalina, Hunter, Beneteau) boat: $250,000 to...

Re: Looking for premium coastal cruiser 39 LOA or less

OK, I looked closer. The M36 is a daysailor. The M36x is a cruiser as is my lowly Catalina 36. Both are about 36' LOA, but the Catalina has 30' of waterline while the M36x has 25'. The...
