      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.

Maine Cat 30

I know...hard to come by.

Why does he want one? Its an open bridgedeck boat. There are plenty of small cats with better layouts. If he is looking for the performance, he should consider a tri. There's a reason they did not sell many. They chartered them in the Bahamas. Maybe he can get one coming off charter.

check out the maine cat yahoo group. Post something there. The users are quite active and I think one or two 30's are for sale.

 

And if by chance you friend wants to step up to a 41' have him PM me. I am thinking about selling mine, that is a Maine Cat 41.

They sold about 60 of the 30' footers and 18 of the 41' footers. So I think more than a few people actually like the boat. Have you every sailed one?

Thanks for the tip on the Yahoo group. Will reach out there.

 

My friend has a limited budget and wants to sail/liveaboard in the Bahamas and Miami for 3/4 of the year. Doesn't want a Gemini, and views the open bridge deck as a plus.

 

I've sailed on and against them...they are a great boat.

Um...other than the Gemini, which cats are you thinking about? Goal is live aboard, but seaworthy for ~100k... I'll refer him if you know of any.

 

And I believe they are still in production from a respected builder...

Have you ever been on one?

Coming from a Corsair F24 MkII it's my idea boat. I'm not on a boat to be below decks.

They are a stout practical boat.

It's not a dockside luxury condo, if you want a boat that spends all it's time at the dock, and you hide below, nope it's not the boat for you.
