    When you can't sail, hang lights.

    Catalina 30 :)

    For a 30-footer it has a lot of space. A friend of mine lived on one for 5-6 years and seemed pretty comfortable. But it was just her. And she recently moved up to a Tayana 42. Two people and a dog on a 30 seems ... cozy ... to me, but it sounds like you're prepared for that aspect. Otherwise it's all in the condition of each particular boat and its equipment.

    Flying Dutchman, sort of, free

    Yeah, if you end up scrapping/parting it out I'd take the gooseneck.
  4. It'd still be a semi-custom project, so it would vary, but Sailing gave its best guess at a sailaway price as $2.8M. http://sailingmagazine.net/article-1998-surfari-50.html

    Flying Dutchman cradle dimensions

    In case this helps, here is where the bunkers are located on my trailer. I can take measurements later today if needed, but this should give a pretty good idea of where they need to be. The forward bunker is lined up with the mast step, and the other is just aft of the traveler. Please forgive her appearance; this was the day I bought her, and boat and trailer have since received some TLC, but all the "after" photos are from less useful angles.

    “Knot” a cool pun: worst boat names ever

    What's the point of life if you can't appreciate a cheesy pun? If you need me, I'll be on Assignment. Also named a previous boat Second Wind. So I guess that's two strikes for me. I've always wanted to see one named Between the Sheets but haven't so far.

    Steve and Dave Clarks Unidentified Foiling Object

    Great stuff! What is the app/device you're using that tracks the course, speed, etc.?

    Mocking Ads on Craigslist

    Still a firm no. That's terrible from stem to stern.

    Uglyboat Admiration Society Hang Out

    Having Shelob as crew will surely help discourage pirates.

    I believe she was mostly finished inside and out at PSC except for the rig. She was launched in Washington for tests/checks and motored to Oriental, where she was pulled out and hauled to Florida to get her stick. This set of pictures was taken in Washington and shows the level of completion at that point. https://www.facebook.com/FriendshipYachtCompany/posts/1774572199221572
