I think sailboat data only uses length on deck measurement, even though they call it LOA. They cover a lot of boats so some of there information is not always 100% accurate, but you get what you pay for. The 31 foot 10 inches would be LOA and is typical of a 1/2 tonner of the day. In the grand scheme of things there really is not much difference between 30.5 and 31.8. A good review if you have not seen it.Just happened to notice the Sailboat Data page showing LOA of 30.54', which surprised me - https://sailboatdata.com/sailboat/attalia-32-jeanneau - I assumed it was at least close to 32'. Looking around I see slight variations, up to 31'10" here - https://sailboatdata.com/sailboat/attalia-32-jeanneau - anyone able to confirm what the LOA should be?
It was Waymar 83 with the water problem .Hello Everyone Im a new “Attalia 32 1984” co owner with my father (who is very experienced at sailing ,and me a complete novice , although I’ve had many boats and have worked in a boat yard for the last 20 years ) but sailing is still new to me . Our boat has been laid up for 10plus years and we’re slowing getting her ready for this season. Ours is the lifting keel version (which is stuck at present) which I initially thought was perfect for where I work as the marina dries out completely to mud, but after reading on here a few pages back that I can expect muddy water or mud to seep through the hole where the lifting rope is !! It’s not the end of the world because I can put her on our deep water mooring but I’d prefer her in the yard where I can keep a daily eye on her. My last 2 lifting keel sail boats have not been a problem in my berth but they were both shoal draft ?? Any way ours sounds very similar to everyone else’s and has a lovely light airy feel to her down below and I was assured by the previous owner that she flies when sailing.
The one post I keep seeing throughout this thread is the ingress of water from aft whilst sailing ( I can’t remember whose post it was ) but did you ever find the cause ??
Look forward to any replies
Thanks for that! I looked at the video and it looks simple. It would not be the same as original, but I am considering it. I have to do parts of the foredeck .… and am still wondering about esthetics with an eventual mix of surfaces . Did you do anything about colour? It’s a bit different in the cockpit as it’s well defined. Thanks again.Just re-did a cockpit floor and I used KiwiGrip for the finishing. Just rough sanded the surface and painted over and it came out great. I practiced on a piece of wood to get the right consistency finish - you water it down to get a finer texture, or if you use it out of the can you get a very rough finish, all depends on what you want. They have a good video on their site too. KiwiGrip | Non-Skid Coating
Brilliant , that’s exactly what I’m thinking. But I’ve not come across many who have done it. Would it be possible to get some pics ( what did he do to eliminate the cracks in the top gel coat) . Also , could you find out if he used polyester or epoxy . In my case it’s about an 8ft square surface, mostly from the bow on the starboard side past the first cleat. I’m not sure how close to the rubrail.How big are the areas you need to re-core? A friend of mine re-cored areas of his deck and instead of compromising the outside he cut away the underside of the deck inside the boat. It would be a little more work removing the interior head liner, and a bit more difficult working overhead, but the result was that you could not tell by looking at the boat that the work had been done. The repair work would be hidden by the head liner so would not require as much finishing. And gelcoat.
