    ID this PHRF low budget ride

    24 Karat was indeed the first Lindenberg 24 built. Skippered by Mark Ploch at the 81 MORC Nationals. I was sailing on the first production Lindenberg 30..

    The 23 I raced on had a adjustable outboard rudder. Boat name was Witchcraft..

    Older / Smaller J Boats

    If you're looking at a J 35 I would give a serious look at a J 33.Just about as fast as a 35 but much easier to sail..

    Identify this throttle control

    I should say I believe it's a Morse.Parts and replacements on Internet.Have had the same issue but lubricants have worked.Soaked the entire unit on the inside while someone would pull the handle in and out at the same time.No problem for the last two seasons..Good luck..

    Heavy Metal

    For some reason I believe Lee Creekmore was the designer..
  10. All three boats are completely different designs.The original Tartan 27 was a S&S design.The Pride 270 was a Britton Chance design and the the Nitro 27 you recall was actually a Soverel 27 design built by Tartan.One of the Soverel 27s built.was named Nitro...

    Production MORC boats

    The designers could not change anything regarding the MORC rule. Any rule measurement changes had to be proposed to the BOG and presented to the membership for a vote usually after much discussion.A few of the craftier designers got very good at manipulating the rule as all good designers do in a measurement based handicap system...

    Seascape 27

    Thanks for responding.I do see some overhang but you are right,it's deceiving.Looks like a very nice boat.Good luck with it.

    Seascape 27

    Is that the electric panel just under the sill of the companionway? That does not seem like a good location, almost everybody getting in or out of the cabin will kick it. FB- Doug I noticed that also but thought they were instruments.I know the the two wettest areas on my boat are the bow and companionway.How do you keep anything directly under that area dry?Is there a clear cover over them that cannot be seen in the picture?

    Manhasset Fall Series

    John,is Uno Mas Hull #1 converted to a masthead rig and restored a bit and then sold by a Doyle rep in the Cleveland area? It had a outboard on it when I sailed on it but he had a inboard included with the sales price.
