Re: PHRFs

Sure it might not be right in all cases and I can cite cases of boats that were screwed by bad ratings, but I am more often shocked at how well PHRF works, all things considered. For example, in...

Re: Best RPM for Yanmar 3HMF?

Those sound like really high RPMs for a Yanmar diesel. I had that same engine in my C&C 36 and I don't think I ever cruised at over 3000 rpms, although I couldn't swear to it. I am not, however, an...

Re: Crewed for the first time yesterday - wow!

Sounds like a lot of fun. My wife and I always laugh about our racing bruises, as we generally have no idea where they came from.

Re: Boats like S&S 34

I'm a big fan of the S&S designed Swans. They made several models 40 feet and under (mine is a 41). Just make sure you find one that has been maintained well. They are extremely well-built and...

Re: Sailing to St. Martin

I'm not sure it's 'good on them" to try a blue water passage in an unsuitable boat having already demonstrated a lack of seamanship. But they will likely be fine.

Re: Swan owners technical forum

You'd be surprised. A lot of Swan owners are very hands on. The S&S Swan owners forum has an active maintenance section. I am up for it but not sure that I am all that great a resource.

Re: Can my boat handle racing?

And by the way, it is a whole lot of fun and fairly low risk if you are conservative in your approach.

Re: Can my boat handle racing?

I don't see why not. I race against many similar Pearsons. But what do you mean by "offshore?"

Re: Cal 36 VS Pearson 36

The 36 is different from the 365. The 36 was a Shaw design, I think and he said it was among his favorites. I have a friend who sunk some money into a 36 and did extremely well racing her in PHRF...

Re: Money no object

I'd keep my boat (Swan 41). But would update the electronics and get all new sails, dodger, bimini and maybe even a new paintjob.

Re: About to buy, nagging engine issue - seeking advice

My Perkins 4.108 definitely needed 12-15 seconds of glow if it was cold.

Re: Cruising on $10k a month.........Powerball Winner

I would jazz up my systems and sails but would otherwise stick with what I got.

Don't try this at home.

It's an old clip so my apologies if it has been posted:

Re: Catalina wing keel or fin keel?

Go for the fin, unless you really need the shoal. The difference in performance is substantial.

Re: Beneteau First 310

Shoal draft is a cruiser's option. My experience is that whatever adjustment that you get in your rating will not be enough. Not many shoal draft boats are competitive in PHRF racing. The First...

Yes. But last post was five years ago so OP may have made up his mind by now.

Re: Dufour LaCoste 42

Not sure why the draft would be a problem anywhere on the east coast. Here in Rhode Island, for example, the water is deep. Maybe you mean down south.

Re: What liquor and wine do you stock on Board

I drink bourbon in the winter but for some reason do not associate whiskey with sailing.

Re: Is she bluewater? Interesting story to help with these questions.

We all love our boats but I think it is border-line irresponsible to encourage people to go offshore in a lightly built coastal cruiser, particularly one that is 25 years old. Catalinas and Hunters...
