free sailboats

I've been offered a few too. Classic plastic. I took 2 Catalina 22's but after I've put $500 in them to refurbish, can't find any buyers at $850. Also offered a Coronado 25? for free but that's...

Not sure how your marina is set up but if the ramp to the dock is high enough, I've been able to do spreader repairs just by parking next to it and work over the rail. Don't think you have huge...

I've made the SEA to SFO run in a Roberts 44. Blew like stink & took 7 days., Never in danger but N to S was a broad reach the entire way. Heading North is usually a tedious close hauled ordeal. ...

big freakin regatta

Trouble is you'd get a couple of barnacles who'd smoke the course runnin' a'fore a sou'easter in a tri-foil Moth and claim the title. Then the other Tars, being enthusiastic, and tolerable good...

Cal 2-27

These are good boats, strong & quite well built, fairly stiff. However, after sailing Ranger 22's, the Cal is going to feel like a slug. Decent head room in the Cal, prices all over the map, not...

key west anchorage

Those are indeed anchoring symbols, the perimeter of the green circle being the swing boundaries. However, I wouldn't use them or any near them as that's a turning basin for cruise ships approaching...

Afraid of Sailing

It is illogical to try to explain sailing to someone who does not sail. In your enthusiasm you fail to see their lingering fear. The exhilaration, the thrill, the very textures that tug us from our...

Trailerable

Folks around my neighborhood trailer their Catalina 27's to Huntington lake for weekend sailing. Lots of stout stuff out there under 27'. There's a Catalina 25 on local craigslist for $2,300. (not...

Cruising for $300,000

I have no statistics to support my statement but I suspect the majority of cruisers spend less than $300,000. For that kind of money I could live on a cruise ship for 10 years. (about $700 a week) ...

On cruising under $300,000

This question reminds me of a short essay by Sterling Hayden, 1916-1986 , actor and author of 'Voyage', a fine square rigger yarn. To quote: "To be truly challenging, a voyage, like life, must rest...

Dieselboy Cal 29

You picked a good ol' production boat. With big sails and a big blow, that thing can get smacked around, but trimming and furling for conditions, it'll push 7 kts and handle a pretty good sea. I've...

Size matters

I'd start out with a Laser. Sail it for a Summer. Great lakes can get hairy in a hurry and if you master those conditions with a small boat, you can sail a big boat. If you start out with a 27'...
