It's been a long time, but my family lived aboard a Nor'Sea for six years Southern California. Apart from the headroom, always a compromise, it was more than adequate. Cruised to Acapulco in '85. One of the first hull, #007, which we finished from a hull, deck and engine. Used the old Lyle Hess rig with short mast and 5' bowsprit - cutter rig. Cruised for 6 months with two little kids, 7 and 3, with no problems at all - carried plenty of stores. Good times. If you have any questions, I'd be more than happy to reply. Overall, the Nor'Sea was an excellent boat, and we miss her (sold her for a house, old story, the kids are still mad...)

Good luck,
Phil and Gay

Would love any info about the boat: Nor'Sea #007, BEAR, originally dark green with red trim, distinctive built-up cockpit, wood stick and bowsprit, cutter rig. Sold in the Bay area in 1987 or so.
