    BENE slow first 235

    Your thread title is bene-slow 235 yet you have fallen for the first broken down boat you've seen; slow things down a little. https://dallas.craigslist.org/dal/boa/d/1988-beneteau-first-235-sailboat/7166188677.html https://jerseyshore.craigslist.org/boa/d/keyport-beneteau-f235/7166823872.html

    Thoughts on this 27' boat

    One for sale in Oriental, NC. https://eastnc.craigslist.org/boa/d/oriental-sailboat-international-boat/7150672317.html
  3. I'd like a cordless tillerpilot/autopilot. Something completely waterproof and powered by a lithium battery. Bluetooth/wifi/etc to interface with phone or other instruments; but primarily just cordless self contained autopilot.

    Tips For Being Rescued

    Craigs List find

    Wavelength 24 in MDR has been for sale for awhile. Sounds like good sails too. Need more boats like this in San Diego. https://losangeles.craigslist.org/wst/boa/d/marina-del-rey-24ft-wavelength/7120108261.html Moore 30 would be fun too. https://losangeles.craigslist.org/lgb/boa/d/santa-ana-moore-30-custom-racing/7131371967.html

    Looking for 25-27 ft phrf rocket...

    There was a Hinterhoeller 25 in the southern Chesapeake that did very well in the late 90s called bout time; the guys sailing it worked at a boatyard and were pretty good. I think they later acquired a beneteau FC8. Not particularly fast rating wise but a great phrf boat and can be a lot of fun in big breeze. https://eastnc.craigslist.org/boa/d/oriental-1971-hinterhoeller-25/7124665194.html

    Is Trailer Sailing Dying

    fleet is going strong
  9. I recently did this for a slightly smaller boat but similar distance. Uhaul was the only place I could find that would do a one-way rental and allow towing. Their 17' box truck is a dually and rated for 10k lbs. The only thing you might check is your tow ball size as theirs are 2" and welded on.

    Favourite Boat pic?

    It's in the classifieds too. Have had someone email me to say they loved the photo but can't buy the boat. Prior to the start of the 2017 Vallejo 1-2
  11. Turnkey Hotfoot in the classifieds. Always thought it could be a fun 20' R2AK candidate.

    Turbo'd SR21

    How do these things handle when there is significant breeze, say 12-15 knots? and some waves? In the Hotfoot 20 in SF we're generally planing by then but can't imagine wanting anymore sail area upwind. I would think something like a mild ditch run (but not as light as this year) might suit you guys well.
