Re: Rawson 30- A Blue Water Cruiser?

Woody:
I grew up where the Rawsons were built. They were all around me when I was a kid. They are fine boats and you should be happy.

Re: Rawson 30- A Blue Water Cruiser?

Woody:
I'm inclined to agree with Jon. Don't give up any sail area. But quit worrying. Your bowsprit will help balance the boat. On the other hand, 12" off "E" is not something you would ever...

Re: 76 Islander 34 Good blue water boat?

Christian is correct. There is now way that boat is 1974. That's when I was designing for Islander and the full keel models were long gone by then.

Re: Rawson 30- A Blue Water Cruiser?

Woodvet:
I'd have to say that 26 to 35' would not be the range I would pick for world cruising. I'd probably say 37' to 43' for a couple with the Valiant 40 being the ideal.

I think doing the...

Re: Rawson 30- A Blue Water Cruiser?

I would not add lead. The boat is heavy already. Weight is always the enemy. Why add more? Your hull form is a not the type that has much form stability so just live with it. But "breaking off" the...

Re: Help the "new generation" pick a cruising boat

Thanks you very much Mike. Maybe it's time to re-meager.

I do enjoy working with people as they look at the variety of boats available. With it being such a buyer's market it helps to have a full...

Re: Help the "new generation" pick a cruising boat

There is a Seattle two tonner WINGS, I think that's the name, that has been "blue water cruising" for the past ten years, at least. I think the only real issue is tankage. But that can be overcome...

Re: Help the "new generation" pick a cruising boat

Poor kid. I'd throw my body down across the dock to prevent him from buying either of those boats. What about a nice, well proven, older C&C 35? What about a Cal 34?

He's a kid for crying out loud! Why are you directing him towards antiques? Rafiki? Allied Seabreeze? The Seabreeze was new when I was his age. This kid needs a boat that has some modern performamnce...

Re: Can anyone recommend a surveyor in the Seattle area

I also recommend Reisner and McKewen. I have known both of them for over 35 years. I would request Todd Harris as your surveyor. Todd, in my opinion, is the best there is. He's hard to book but worth...

Re: Guidance with Laser2 Purchase -Please help!-

The Laser 2 is frequently used as a "trainer" by junior groups. That's where my son was introduced to the boat. It's an easy boat to sail. You may want to wear your bathing suit for the first...

Re: Guidance with Laser2 Purchase -Please help!-

The Laser 2 is a good boat. My son Spike spent many hours racing one. I would guess and it's just a guess, that if the boat, sails and trailer are in good shape you might offer $2,000. Make sure that...

The stamp does say "Shelton, WA." But the construction show timber build and tumblehome. Maybe the builder took the tumble home out so he could pull the hull from a mold easier.

There were about three Gulf 40's in the Seattle area back in the early 60's. I used to race against them. I remember one was owned by a guy with an Italian name. I want to say something like Al...

"decency" Thanks for that. It's not a word I hear very often. But I like it.

I'm always here to try and answer your questions. I'll strive to live up to "decent".
