Re: Mirage 33 good and bad
I too have a 1982 Mirage 33, going on 3 years now. So far I haven't found any problems other than what would be expected from an older boat. Construction seems above average for the type of boat and always has a dry bilge. What type of sailing do you plan on and where?
Apologies for the late reply. We will be cruising in the Pacific Northwest - San Juans, Gulf Islands, Vancouver, Desolation Sound etc, also possibly a circumnavigation of Vancouver Island. I have done quite a bit of club racing so that's a possibility also.
We are currently making the boat more "livable" which involves updating some electronics, adding lighting, storage solutions, and so on. The current project is chasing down rain water leaks and I need to re bed one of the salon fixed portlights but can't figure out how to get the old ones off as there are no visible screws.
Any suggestions ?
