Re: Bob Perry's Carbon Cutters

Bob... A respectful request from us mere mortals; Can we purchase a set of plans for this design to be built in wood/S-glass/Aluminum spar? I promise I will use use come carbon tape in high stress areas, maybe even some CNC cut Stainless floors/mast step/fames.... pretty please?

Yes, I think I can do that. I would have to redo the construction drawing and specs for you. We would use less ballast but it would still be a very good boat.

That would be amazing Bob. I have fallen in and out of love with so many designs as I have my internal battle between build vs buy. Bermuda 40's, Columbia 50's, Collin Archer double enders, Bristol Channel Cutters, too many center cockpit designs, plus so many of your designs... the list is never ending. I keep shopping while in the process of learning more and I'll just go on sailing my little 22 ft pocket cruisers and racing dinghies until I can figure out the right plan.

What I can say for sure is that I have loved so many aspects of your Carbon Cutter design since I first learned about it from your blog 3 years or so ago. The sea chest, the rudder configuration, the space age materials, scantlings, and of course those lines; the closest I think anyone has come to an all round package wrapped up in great in advances in materials/building technology.

The big thing for me besides all the wonderful points and compliments so many have said about this design; I have really settled on the 40 to 44 foot range of LOA that seems to provide the best balance of interior volume/amenities with reasonable cost of ownership/moorage/maintenance. So many wonderful designs in the 50 to 60 ft range but the haul-out, slip fees, and other associated costs even compared to a 40 ft boat that is still 'big' makes me cringe. I am looking for long term, sustainable enjoyment with a happy balance of performance, sea worthiness... etc. I think my growth of knowledge about cruising and formulated opinion is very similar to most folks who are Perry Design fans.

Re: Bob Perry's Carbon Cutters

Luke:
Thanks for the kind words.

Who would you have build this boat? I have found over the years that options in style and materials for hull and deck in the end do not make a huge difference in the finished cost of the boat. If a boatyard told you they could build this boat in your material spec for $700,000 I'd be skeptical. I'm not here to lead you down the garden path. Built as per no. 1 we are looking at $1,000,000. USD!

Re: Bob Perry's Carbon Cutters

Bob, may I ask what marine radios were fitted?

In addition to the Icom VHF it looks like two Icom HF radios!

Formally noelex77, but I cannot access that account.

I have no idea. They are black. I'll find out for you. I stayed far away from that part of the boat. There is pretty much two of everything. One monitor. I think the monitor cost $6,000.

Re: Bob Perry's Carbon Cutters

Thursday was a lot of fun Bob, glad I got to come along. Third time being on a sailboat, the last was about a year ago with my friend on a trip to sucia trying to keep his decrepit 25' ****heap together. I noticed right after we left that all the diesel had escaped into the bilge, luckily the 70s farymann diesel wasn't too picky.

It's very strange, going the cruising speed of my fathers old gillnet boat we used to live and work on in Alaska, using no fuel. No engine noise, just an almost eerie silence. Almost as strange as being on an electric motorcycle.

Now you have me bugging my friend to teach me what's what on the older C&C he upgraded to and learning about sailboats in my free time. This is going to get expensive, isn't it?

At least now I realize how badly I need a haircut.

Re: Bob Perry's Carbon Cutters

Good to see your here Collin. Glad you enjoyed the sail. Robert was making it a wee bit more complex than necessary but he certainly knows what he is doing.
