Re: WD Schock Wavelength 24, hull 006

Thought I'd post my new adventures.
Things have kind of been a whirlwind for me these last 6 months. Went back to school, started my MBA, quit my job, got a new one, and am moving to Bedford, VA. House sold, house bought.

Oh and this is a sailing thread right? New home, Pelican Point Yacht club. Now if I can ONLY get a few minutes to actually sail. But Tom hooked me up and got Mini Moo launched.

Re: WD Schock Wavelength 24, hull 006

3 foot itis has hit me and I'm looking at much bigger boats.
Yesterday I sold Mini Moo to partners looking to race her proper like.

Details need worked out, but Mini Moo will be moved to Ohio and from there its anyone's guess. I am sure her new owners will likely remove her spots (cow-ards -- you see what I did there?), but the fact that she'll be crushing boats up to 6 foot longer than her, will be cool to see.

Gonna miss the Moo.

I hope that Moo turned out to be as good a boat for you as I had suggested that she might be. It will be hard to find a 2 foot longer boat that would perform as well as Moo. Good luck with the next adventure. (Maybe 4 feetitis: a Laser 28)

Re: WD Schock Wavelength 24, hull 006

Jeff, Moo has been an awesome boat.
Shes fast, responsive, and easy to sail... It takes effort to sail well, but rewards in spades when you get her right.

I have 6-8 foot itis. I am looking to get something I can hop on and enjoy, sail alone, and take a few folks with me. No more racing for me. Looking forward to roller furling, and maybe lazy jacks. Since I am now at Smith Mountain Lake in VA, I have access to water that does not turn solid, and a marina that has a travel lift and crane.

Boats I am considering, C&C 32, Hunter 31, and Hunter 30 (2 I think, 90s model). There is also an S2 9.1 available there, but I am not sure I want to go S2 again. The C&C I have seen in person and seems well sorted. I have just walked around the others.

I am concerned I will get bored on whatever I get, so a decent turn of speed is still a desire. I was shocked when the C&C sailed in under 4 knots of wind, with just a headsail. It wasn't fast, maybe 1.5 knots, but still, a lot of boats would not move. I'd love to see it in 20 knots true.

I think after the fast boats you have owned, you might be bored with a 6b foot-itis boat. How about a 30-ish foot cruiser and a racing dinghy when you want a thrill sail?

Re: WD Schock Wavelength 24, hull 006

While I understand that you are shying away from racing and are looking for a good daysailor/overnighter, I think that any of those boats that you are looking at (Except perhaps the S2 9.1) would bore you to tears and would be harder to handle than a more performance oriented boat. As a result there would be a tendency to use the boat less than you might a boat that had more sailing ability. In the affordable 30 foot range you might try to find a Soverel 30 https://sailboatdata.com/sailboat/soverel-30-1979, Wavelength 30 https://sailboatdata.com/sailboat/wavelength-30, Olsen 911, or to a lesser extent Santana 30-30, Dehler 31, X302 J-30 or J-29.

Re: WD Schock Wavelength 24, hull 006

Jeff, you are a wise man.
I do actually listen to you. I am definitely worried about being bored on the C&C 32 which is my preference of the lot.

I am considering the S2 9.1 and think I'd drop into it and have no problems sailing it.
It comes down to which boat gives me the best bang for the buck, ie: lowest price.

Re: WD Schock Wavelength 24, hull 006

Mini Moo went to her new home in Ohio. New owners Chris and John will be racing her on Lake Erie.

Sad to see her go, but happy for her new owners. They will have SUCH a blast with her.
