    Skye 51: I’m intrigued

    Interestingly the first boat I ever saw this layout on was a Bristol 45.5, not exactly a racing boat.

    How about a J/36? Quicker than most of what you list, not huge below but not tiny. https://48north.com/classifieds/listing/j-36-sailboat-for-sale/

    Bonus points if the sailboat is the one t-boned

    I like it. Especially appreciate the headroom.

    Had a chat with the broker today. The owner took the teak decks (and teak rail) off in the early 00s as a part of a major refit. Seems like it could be a nice fit. Will have to see once he’s got the complete equipment list and specs to me.

    I like that this one only has teak in the cockpit. Wish it were the ketch model.

    H-Boat vs. Hinckley Sou'wester 30

    My turbo 105 has a 292 sq ft foretriangle and if I am paying attention, the 100% is easy to get in without a winch on tacks. If I am not paying attention, it is easy to get in *with* a winch on tacks. Really a manageable sail. The 155% is NOT easy.

    At least they retired. That’s not always the case for collisions.

    H-Boat vs. Hinckley Sou'wester 30

    I’m still the biggest fan of the Bristol and the Hinckley but the Alberg earns honorable mention. They are handsome and around here race one design!

    Everyone is buying boats...

    Two problems with my spot. While I have 10’ of water at my pier, the bridge clearance is only 50’. Also, it’s a long way up the Choptank so it is not really a place for a sailboat even if it fit. It’s just too narrow and winding to ever be able to sail. Naturally the only logical next step is to sell the house and live on a boat in Annapolis, right? Right. Right...

    Has foiling gone too far?

    Looking for good used J 105 sails

    There’s a guy who cold called me on Facebook saying he’s trying to sell a suit of sails. If you’re interested I can give you his name to look up on FB.

    I’m thinking to some cruising book that said “it is considered impolite to have your laundry out [either before or after, I can’t remember] noon” and I thought that was such an arbitrary thing to say

    I’m selling a waterfront house on the eastern shore if you’re in the market
  15. What say ye? The “custom” in the title always scares me when it ostensibly started out as a production boat—who did the customizing? Although that might just be because the default if the brand isn’t listed. https://www.yachtworld.com/boats/1982/custom-skye-51-3717082/
