best drink?

Get someone to pour (and pay) for three fingers of Lagavulin, a 16 year old single malt.

bottom job/rigging

On my Cal 22 I just had the standing rigging and lifelines replaced by Sailnet for $500.

The headstay was changed a couple of years ago when the furler was added so I did not replace it but maybe...

masthead lighting problem

In a similar problem, but not on a mast, it turned off to be a faulty ground. Reading with a meter looked like it was a good ground.

The boat manufactures should consider how the WestSail 32 galvanized a generation. Showing a way of romantically going over the horizon on a budget that almost anyone could afford.

Boat to learn on

Some good points...Thanks to all.

I will be looking around this fall to see if I can find something, probably less that 2000 lbs. My S-10 is a 4x4 and rated to tow twice that so I should be OK. ...

Motion at Sea

How much ride do I give up to have a turn of speed and be able to point? If you have to have two particular boats to compare try a Pacific Seacraft 37 and a Tartan 3700 as an example.

Motion at Sea

Take two boats of about 38 feet and 18,000 lbs.

One has a modern "fairly flat" underbody with a fin keel and spade rudder.

First thanks to both for your responses. I do see that waiting until we retire and are able to devote all our time to the boat is a good point. Also that things can change between now and...

Good point.. I''m probably letting the "wants" to own a boat push up the time to buy.

I still struggle with what boat so it may take until we retire and then some to find a boat that...

Pacific Seacraft

Thanks for the reply.
Seems like alot of the boats I like are a bit pricy. However I do agree that the canoe stern is not the best way to build them.
