Re: First boat: Cal 2-27, Pearson 28 or Islander 28?

Oh, believe me, I will be careful. I've looked at the depth charts around the channel, there's no room anywhere past the entrance markers. I'm sure it'll be even more exciting come summer winds.

re: First boat: Cal 2-27, Pearson 28 or Islander 28?

Thanks for the advice guys. I completely agree, keeping her within easy reach of home/work would be important, as there're quite a few little things I'd like to work on. Coyote Point seems to be a...

re: First boat: Cal 2-27, Pearson 28 or Islander 28?

Yes, that is what I'm guestimating. I'll have to start early to peek out of the Gate, but it is still better than about 5 hours out of Redwood City. The next harbor north is Oyster Point, and that...

re: First boat: Cal 2-27, Pearson 28 or Islander 28?

Actually both Cal 2-27 and Pearson 28 were at RYC, and Cal 29 is still at BYC until tomorrow, so I visited there a few times. The club and the harbor looked very nice and active, lots of boats, lots...

re: First boat: Cal 2-27, Pearson 28 or Islander 28?

Thanks Hylyte, that sounds like very good advice.

I was wondering about that bilge under the engine. In fact, I already dropped a 2" stainless hook in there, so I'll have to get really well...

re: First boat: Cal 2-27, Pearson 28 or Islander 28?

Well, it's done. Survey went well, didn't find any major issues. The sloppy rudder turned out to be just the loose tiller head. There was a little bit of play in the rudder itself when the boat was...

re: First boat: Cal 2-27, Pearson 28 or Islander 28?

Thanks for advice on the rudder guys. I've done a bit or research after I posted and it does seem to be a common problem on Cals. I haven't seen any mention of bushings or bearings, but there were...

re: First boat: Cal 2-27, Pearson 28 or Islander 28?

Well, after a long search, it looks like I found my boat, and it's none of the above. It's a Cal 29. A little bigger than the others, but should still be manageable. By all accounts she should be...

re: First boat: Cal 2-27, Pearson 28 or Islander 28?

Finally got some traction on the boat, hopefully will be able to get the inspection done some time late next week. However, one bad piece of news is that the Honda outboard they promised me has been...

re: First boat: Cal 2-27, Pearson 28 or Islander 28?

Well, as I understand it, the rule of thumb is electric has to be half the power of the diesel it is replacing. Don't ask me why, something to do with torque curves :) I'm shooting for 8.5Kw (~11hp),...

re: First boat: Cal 2-27, Pearson 28 or Islander 28?

That's a point very well taken. Despite deciding to go ahead with the electric, I still have some reservations about it, range and power being the biggest ones. From what I gathered, it seems most...

re: First boat: Cal 2-27, Pearson 28 or Islander 28?

Oh, trust me, I'm well aware of that. Unfortunately, I can't get her in-person approval (long story), but fortunately she likes the idea and is adventurous enough to give it a good try.

LOL, wrote this yesterday, but forgot to hit the send button :)

Hylyte, thanks for the info. I'm pretty much set on the Cal at this point, but it's still nice to know it'll be the steadier of the...

re: First boat: Cal 2-27, Pearson 28 or Islander 28?

Thank you for the reassurance, it is good to know I'm not totally off my rocker :) As for bigger boats, I was really tempted at first. Dreamed about crossing oceans and all that. But then, I've made...

re: First boat: Cal 2-27, Pearson 28 or Islander 28?

I actually looked at that boat a while ago, but I figured it would be too much hassle to get it transported to SF. Now that I've looked into parts availability for Farymanns, I'm not so sure it's...

re: First boat: Cal 2-27, Pearson 28 or Islander 28?

Funny you should mention it, I just completed ASA101 course :) I wouldn't "brag" about it though, it's more an indication of how "green" I really am, not the other way around.

I didn't mean to...

re: First boat: Cal 2-27, Pearson 28 or Islander 28?

I don't doubt dinghy sailing experience would be advantageous, I just don't think it would be the only way to learn. I would think it would be more dangerous to take out a "flippy little boat" on the...

re: First boat: Cal 2-27, Pearson 28 or Islander 28?

The more I read about Farymann engines, the more I realize that it would have to be scrapped. Apparently, it wasn't that good to begin with, and the parts are not produced any more, so it would be an...

re: First boat: Cal 2-27, Pearson 28 or Islander 28?

Thanks a bunch for the responses.

HyLyte, could you provide some more details on the Cal vs Islander comparison? Was the Cal faster, steadier, easier to handle? These boats are pretty similar on...

First boat: Cal 2-27, Pearson 28 or Islander 28?

Hi all,

I've been bitten by the sailing bug a couple of month ago and since then I've been lurking through this forum dreaming about buying my own boat. Well, now I'm getting more serious about it...
