      Abbreviated rules   07/28/2017

      Underdawg did an excellent job of explaining the rules.  Here's the simplified version: Don't insinuate Pedo.  Warning and or timeout for a first offense.  PermaFlick for any subsequent offenses Don't out members.  See above for penalties.  Caveat:  if you have ever used your own real name or personal information here on the forums since, like, ever - it doesn't count and you are fair game. If you see spam posts, report it to the mods.  We do not hang out in every thread 24/7 If you see any of the above, report it to the mods by hitting the Report button in the offending post.   We do not take action for foul language, off-subject content, or abusive behavior unless it escalates to persistent stalking.  There may be times that we might warn someone or flick someone for something particularly egregious.  There is no standard, we will know it when we see it.  If you continually report things that do not fall into rules #1 or 2 above, you may very well get a timeout yourself for annoying the Mods with repeated whining.  Use your best judgement. Warnings, timeouts, suspensions and flicks are arbitrary and capricious.  Deal with it.  Welcome to anarchy.   If you are a newbie, there are unwritten rules to adhere to.  They will be explained to you soon enough.

  1. I am doing my research round on a classic for the family (4) that on occasion can also be delivered across oceans by a smaller crew. Key points: Budget: <40k€ incl refit. Buying in Europe, Use: 5-6 people for daysailing, crew of 2-3 for long passages (e.g. Atlantic circle) Dimensions: the beam should be <9.8'/3m, weight <5t to maintain some sort of land-transportability. Draft <5.5' So far I considered: Albin Ballad (a little small but sturdy boat), Halberg Rassy 31, Artekno H-35 (bit too long considering its berth capacity), Westerly Longbow 31 (heavy - I don't know, how much a transport guy would ask for 5.5t) Any other suggestions? The Ballad I researched the most seems really cheap but space is quite limited inside...
  2. I set off from Townsville with the goal of spending a month in the Louiseiades then over to the Solomons.I didn't make it very far! A broken chainplate forced me to sail to Cairns for repairs. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fGfGpFdWafs&t=1s
  3. I am getting back into sailing after many years. I dream of buying a sailboat, living on it, sailing and diving a lot. I have read several forums on the pluses and minuses of buying a new boat versus a used boat. They have generally been excellent in their content and in many cases provocative, bring up things I never would have considered, if it weren't for the experience of others. What was missing for me, however, was the discussion of buying a boat with an age greater than 15-20 years and doing an extensive refit. I am able to do much of the work as I have the skills and tools to do it. I am, however, delving into an area where I have little practical experience, as far as off-shore sailing and fitting a boat for the rigors of that lifestyle. I have huge dreams and a limited budget. What the hell, got to start clearing a path somewhere. Why not here? :-)
  4. I am looking at a Beneteau FC10 and I really like the design. Could it serve as a family cruiser? Is it reliable enough to do the Atlantic Circle to escape winter in the Med?
  5. Perhpas a bit early for this sort of post but whatever! Looking for a boat (either race or cruise) that is looking to cross the Atlantic this upcoming Winter. I have a lot of experience from both offshore and inshore, and on everything from small dinghies to large race yachts such as AC boats, Open 60, Class 40 etc. And everything in between. Also done a few delivery as both crew and skipper (no Yachtmaster license though). Have a lot of safety education in commercial shipping (basic safety and military graded safety courses, among other things) and several years education and work with engineering on large container vessel. Day job atm is driving a ferry on the Swedish West Coast.
  6. Anarchists, First and foremost thank you for this forum. I've been pouring over posts that I think apply to my aspirations and I genuinely appreciate the expertise, banter, and humor. Now, my aforementioned aspirations. I'm a Navy veteran (aviation) who recently enrolled in graduate school and has decided to call Annapolis home while I figure out what's next. While in the midst of this figuring, three good friends passed of tragic circumstances in less than three months, and my figuring came to an abrupt conclusion. Fuck it. While I did decide to complete my graduate program, I am now undergoing the somewhat familiar (at least to the internet) process of "selling everything" and leaving. While I've traveled extensively in the past, including six months driving around South America, I've never done any long distance on a ship that wasn't propelled by steam by way of nuclear fission (or fusion...i can never remember which, and I was a history major so I'm sure as shit not figuring it out); and since I've often discussed sailing to far flung locations including Patagonia and Antarctica I figured this was a good a time as any to figure it out. I don't really have any hard geographic goals to apply to my search criteria such as "circumnavigation" or "all seven continents" or "caribbean bung holing (sic)", but i figured if she could do a circumnavigation then I have the option, and I like options. So, now that I'm a four-months and neck deep in boat porn, cruising world posts, and the occasional Perry on Design review, I think I can finally translate my "options" into boat speak. The reason I decided to post however, is because most reviews that at least start along some of the same criteria (boat length, budget, circumnavigation etc.) all quickly diverge before I can obtain more nuggets of wisdom. So, if you're still reading, thank you, and this is where I seek advice. Scouts honor titty pics to follow. I just didn't want to cheapen the process by pulling some off the internet, and I generally don't keep them lying around...but I'm certainly not against changing that policy. 1) Not against going slow...to a point (IP40 ok, IP27 not so much) 2) Likely will be single-handing for extended stretches (probably right around a fresh titty pic posting) 3) "Gentlemen don't sail to windward" so I'm sure I'll find myself heading that direction at least once 4) But I would still like to be under 6' draft 5) Trying to balance cost of ownership with livability 6) Under 40' gets me into 90% of military marinas, over 40' lowers it to 20% 7) Strong resell market is huge, not trying to buy my forever boat 8) Turn key is preferable as USAA financing won't take refit into financing considerations With those eight criteria going into my search I've landed on the following boats with the following reservations: Vilm 116 - New Bern, NC (http://www.yachtworld.com/boats/2002/Vilm-Nauticat-116-Motorsailer-Pilothouse-2728375/New-Bern/NC/United-States#.VqbmylMrLR0) Pros: Absolutely gorgeous boat (pictures don't do it justice) Can always motorsail to windward (owner claims <.7 gph @ 7 knot cruise) Bob Perry seemed to like it (http://sailingmagazine.net/article-384-vilm-116.html) Separate living spaces should I decide to pursue charter/airbnb In-mast furling (solely for single-handing) Cons: Pretty much whatever the boat version of "stock" is In-mast furling (I get people swear against it, but it seems interesting a "baltic" boat would choose it) Tankage is small Doesn't appear to have a strong resale market Island Packet 40 - Deltaville, VA (http://www.yachtworld.com/boats/1995/Island-Packet-40-2855081/Deltaville/VA/United-States#.VqbnA1MrLR0) Pros: Strong resale market Not terribly ugly (even with the arch) Not terribly slow (especially by IP standards) 4'8" draft Pride of previous ownership Turnkey Cons: Not terribly beautiful Not terribly fast Those interior lights High(er) engine hours (maybe it's slower than I think) Caliber 40 LRC - Maine (http://www.yachtworld.com/boats/1997/Caliber-40LRC-2913861/ME/United-States#.VqbocVMrLR0) Pros: Tankage I like the looks of the lines Quicker than the IP, and I assume the Vilm Pride of previous ownership Definitely Turnkey Cons: Hate the looks of the interior Even higher engine hours Seems like a crowded deck and cockpit (does it have to be a cutter?) Like the option of being able to sleep on the cockpit settees and those don't look friendly In closing I really do like the idea of the raised salon / hard dodger but not enough to like the sliding doors of the Nauticat 38. I know the S&S designed Nauticat 43' is supposed to sail much better, and has the traditional entry, but it's too large and I can't find a 35' in the US to see if it's large enough. I have also looked into catamarans, but can't seem to find a decisive conclusion as to whether or not a sane person would round the Capes in a Seawind 1000 (only cat I like that I could afford). As far as my experience I've crewed on a Bennet Brothers Sloop for a delivery or two as well as day sailing, have a Sun Fish behind the house, and plan on doing Wednesday Night races once I have something resembling free time (July-August). So in the interest of finishing this post I'll end here, thanks again.
  7. Sabre, Swan or Solent? Anyone familiar with any of these: http://www.yachtworld.com/boats/1989/Swan-36-2994414/Emeryville/CA/United-States#.WCnkeRTLQfE http://www.yachtworld.com/boats/1995/Sabre-362-3007312/Emeryville/CA/United-States#.WCoAYxTLQfE What wood would you Pick and Why? Or move to Solent where good boats are made not born? While you are picking your poison and reasons why, allow me to entertain you with "I had fun on the phone with the boat broker..." '..you better send us an offer, before you come up here to have a look see. this boat is going to go fast!'. HTFU, boat in question still marked for sale. '...water damage? uh, let me check with the owner....' Liner replaced. Hmmm '...oh that cream puff. On survey buyer found evidence of hard grounding. Buyer bailed. Later sold for a song to Okie who transported boat to Makulgee...' 'Corrosion? I challenge you to find any! These owner are super fastiduous..' Challenge accepted: Any and all floridian boat has unseen issues. 'The reason that boat isn't selling: its a hurricane boat! Remember Katrina?' Finally the truth came out! An assorted list of inaccuraciies from YW descriptions: Rode Rigging: Use your anchor rode to fix rigging issues! Boat used last year, no reported problems!: None that he/she wanted anyone to know about. Meanwhile, boat sits unused and unloved, deteriorating quickly. Bring all offers: Broker is getting tired of looking at that hulk that is taking up prime real estate in the yard. Seller tired of paying inflated yard rates Elliptical Rudder and Keel: Funny, this marketing and design feature didn't show up till the next iteration of this model... Owned by Naval Architect: Pictures portray ignorance of leeway while excessively heeling...Or are we to be impressed that the rudder hasn't cavitated quite yet?
  8. Hi. I'm new here, but this seems like an extremely active forum, so I'm optimistic you'll give me some good responses. I'm looking to upgrade from my Pearson 35, which I've lived on and singlehanded for the past 12 years. I want a bluewater boat that I can singlehand if necessary, that tracks well downwind but also has decent upwind performance, aft cockpit, cutter ideally but not necessarily, less than $75k all told (preferably much less than that), 34-41' (but slender beam if 39+'--I don't need much room and I'd like to keep weight reasonable). And, ideally, classic-ish lines above the water and a modern-ish decent keel. I've looked at everything available, and all the boats between 34 and 41' on sailboatdata.com. This is what I've come up with: Bristol 35.5, Cavalier 39, Dickerson 37, Newport 41, Rival 36 (my favorite, but out of my price range, so no need to discuss her). My questions for you are this: Would you take each of these boats across an ocean? I know the Bristol and Newport aren't typically bluewater boats, but the Bristol, at least, seems built tough enough to do it, and I've heard of at least one Newport that's done it. But is the Newport safe, with that exposed rudder? Also, I'm having a lot of trouble finding information on the Dickerson 37 and Cavalier 39 online. Can anyone tell me about their upwind performance? (And, yes, I know that going across oceans is primarily downwind, but I Love to sail, and I want a boat that's a joy to sail and performs well.) I know the Cavalier is a prime bluewater boat, but how about the Dickerson? Thanks so much for any info you can give me. Best, Patti
