But but but, it's a Tripp design. Why slow?

Because it's ancient.

Probably wasn't slow more than 1/2 century ago.

This could be a new thread: "Bull City is looking." Any way...

I have been pretty happy with the H-Boat on our lake. The only system is the running and cabin lights. No inboard, no plumbing. The H-Boat has SA/DSIP 19, DISP/LWL 161. I like the performance.

That said, I could get interested in a boat up to 30 or 32 feet, provided it was very simple. A diesel inboard would be OK (I think I can locate a mechanic) but no plumbing, or holding tanks. 2 burner stove would be nice, place for a porta-potty. The J100 is pretty simple, but it's not right for a number of reasons. A Center Harbor 31 could work, but they're pretty pricey. Maybe a cabin heater. Tiller. Companionway could be off-set. :rolleyes: Simple interior. A table would be nice. Standing headroom OK but not required.

Suggestions?

Thanks,

B.C.

Where you are: I see rather a bit big gap between the slim H-boat and the next step. There is currently an Aphrodite 101 in New York state, other than that... A not so well in shape Abbott 33, and I like the Pearson 10m, but they are on the rather big side.

In Europe I would say the H-323 (pic) or H-35, the Senorita Helmsman, the Omega 10m or the Link 30 aka Mystery 30, from top down:

Other than that: the H-Boat is such a capable small boat, I would keep it and find a solution for stove and head.

I particularly like 'Bert', a modified example, competing with a nice set of sail in the Solent (see pic at original source):

I was just looking for a place to put this. I think it's cool but not exactly what you're looking for. Someone invested a shit ton of money, work and love into it.

I got to wondering what boats in the YRA/LIS PHRF list would seem likely contenders for Bull. I filtered for appropriate length and narrowness and got a short list. Note that almost all these boats are open daysailors.  Apparently, I'd have to relax my Length/Beam ratio criterion a bit to get actual cruising boats. The inclusion of the Dragon, and of course the H-boat, suggest that Scandinavia is the place to look.

That's a list of great boats. A lot of them are boats I've dreamed of owning.

He's got an H-boat now, we know about that.... the Herreshoff "S" is kinda funny looking and tiny inside and maintenance intensive. I personally found them a blast to sail but that was in the context of racing with a fleet (I think Watch Hill? It was a long time ago). The Dragon and the Rozinante have either tiny cabins or just a cuddy.

The Esse 850 doesn't seem like it would have the interior he wants, and is expensive as hell. Gorgeous boats, though (judging by pics, I've never seen one in person)

The Knockabout, Etchells, Ultra, Shields, most Six Meters (a few have tiny cabins), and 11 Metre, don't have cabins at all.

The Mega is a cool boat in many ways but very few if any think it's a good-looking boat. Not sure Bull will like the Hobie 33 either.

That leaves the Abbott 33, the E 33, the Aphrodite, San Juan 33 (why not a Tartan Ten?), and Knarr 30, to consider.

Progress made!

The Tartan 10 is a touch beamier than the LOA/Beam limit of 3.75 which I used.

The T-10 is a just tad too big in the butt for them to be as good-looking as the others. Great sailing boats and as practical as any..... not standing headroom though.

The big butt makes them great off-wind performers, they punch 'way above their weight IMHO.

I've always been partial to another Bill Tripp design: the Seafearer 31.  The sloop, not the ketch version.  Very sweet sailing (if not the quickest boat in the fleet), and very, very sweet looking. Most of them will have a head with a holding tank, but that's easy enough to take out and put in a porti-pottie.  I've been told that some of the early models even had the head plumbed to go directly into a seacock with no tank.

You're forgiven ;)

Tripp's have such an elegant look, even the small oned. I was on a Sailmaster 26 some years ago and it had many features I really liked. The centreboard slot in the long keel tended to turn mud into concrete, though. But other than that: surprisingly large below.

Wow indeed.  Along those same lines (no pun intended), check out Tim's efforts on an old Triton hull that he stripped bare and made into a day sailer.  Tim used to have an entire website devoted to the project.  The link is still on his page, but it appears to be dead.

Methinks that Bull will be quite interested in the Omega 10 DS.  We have similar tastes.  The Center harbor is too rich for both of us, otherwise....

I think SemiSalt has hit on it.

We have had many weeks of humid, gloomy weather. We are now under the pitter patter rain of the remnants of Sally. Next week will be glorious: night time low in the upper 50s, daytime highs in the upper 70s. Mrs. Bull and I will be embarking on our first overnight "cruise" on the H-Boat. A pot of Andalusian beef stew and a bottle of Spanish red will tell the tale.

Our last cruise was on a Cape Dory Typhoon (18 feet) in Biscayne Bay 45 years ago. Then it was Budweiser and KFC chicken. We have progressed.

Yes, they are really good. Overlooked design, always a bit in the shadow of the H.

Similar, bit smaller: Nordic Familyboat

I got to wondering what would happen if I loosed up the L/B ratio enough to capture the Tartan 10.

One thing about raceboats. They can be laid out so that the controls are far apart so each crew member has a little elbow room. A boat like that can be hard to handle by one or two. I don't know if that's true of the Tartan 10. I remember looking at one thinking that my crew, used to my Capri 22, could probably handle it with a little practice.

I've always loved the Hobie 33.  Was one of my desires when I was a kid in the 80s.  When I first saw one I thought it was the coolest looking boat I had ever seen.  lol.

A couple of siblings (I'm guessing), sweat the anchor up on VITAL SPARL, a Concordia Ketch built-in 1962. 31' overall with a 9'4" beam. Great Covid-19 escape pod for an experienced sailing family.

Kinda funny, we used to have a green hull, in talking to my Italian friend who is the delivery captain I came down from Florida with the subject of boat colors came up.  He was always giving me shit for being mostly Irish and the farmer at sea material which is apparently endless, I guess for Italians a green hull is for farmers..and cqrs but that goes without saying.... He also advised watering our foremast regularly so maybe it would grow to the correct height.

^^^ My boat is green with a beige/cream deck. The spars need painting anyway, so I'm thinking about that very color scheme.

T10 -- huge cockpit, plenty of elbow room. Headroom is low but it has lots of freeboard, so is very roomy for sitting/lounging.

Off Center Harbor's classifieds has great classic boats, w/ the occasional Scandinaviana.

A friend of mine bought an Able 34' this season. I didn't know there was one. Chuck Paine design I guess. Sorry for the image, I took the shot from below as I was too warm to leave the fire.

Some of these boats are obscure. Vinelander 32, Norvega 28?

LOA/Beam for the H-Boat is 3.78. Columbia Sabre is 5.18.

I easily fall for flush decks, but even without this bias, she's really pretty. And apparently for sale at 55,000€, though the owner did not post an ad. Just his email.

Hell yeah, now you're talking!

My wife and I looked at a smaller sister, when shopping for our cruising boat (we eventually bought and cruised in a trawler) and it was probably the closest thing to The Perfect Boat I found, all things considered except price (and we -could- have afforded it, given some luck, working a few more years, and pushing harder).

Btw, is there any well-known current politician known to be sailing? Germany's former foreign minister is one, but he was always very quiet about it.

I know nothing about design, nautical or any other, so i am absolutely allowed to have an opinion based entirely on gut.

My gut tells me that this looks purposeful, and it belongs to a retired naval officer, probably submarines, who is a serious individual. Respectful and well-mannered but 110% prepared for anything and everything. Don’t even think of crossing him/her but if he/she is on your side you’ll be OK.

Wow, Bob, that’s spooky. Or maybe not. Maybe boats, like dogs, come to resemble or reflect the characters or personalities of their owners. Given your vast experience, what’s your opinion?

This client sounds like the kind of person one would love to meet but would, at the same time, be afraid to!

As mentioned, I have no design expertise, or even amateurise, so the drawing is pearls before swine. But thank you for sharing. There’s something definitely serious about the double humps, sorry; from forward aft, the way there’s a slightly raised coach roof that runs into the sloped windows, and the pilot house (?) is then backed up by a solid shape. I wouldn’t be surprised to see her fold the mast down, seal the companionway and dive like a submarine, surprising all and sundry! She’s not sinister but she has something... different. She has stories to tell, some of which she’s not allowed to and others you just wouldn’t believe anyway. I’d love to write her life story, at least the one she exudes just from her looks.

 Presumably  you don’t allow the swine to see the top secret elements of the boat??? The flux capacitor etc.

Thanks again. If appropriate, please pass my observations on to the client.

All three of those boats, despite looking like cosmetically perfect "yacht club queens" have cruised extensively. I believe at least 2 of 3 have circumnavigated at least once.

It's gorgeous now.... well, subtract a few points for the crap on the back (COTB) and the lack of a cove stripe... I think I'd very much like your color scheme. But the boat itself is beautiful and it's hard to hide that.

All three of those boats, despite looking like cosmetically perfect "yacht club queens" have cruised extensively. I believe at least 2 of 3 have circumnavigated at least once. 

I like the colors and the inner forestay on his better. Super nice folks aren’t they? If you didn’t know, you’d never know. 

I think we use the same brand and color of dish soap. They've got to be good folks. :D

Beautiful boat.

That boat is owned by OCC School of Sailing. The brokers ignored her, battery ran flat, boat flooded. Yanmar diesel frozen, no further investigation. They are eager for any offers, no market for this kind of boat here. They had an offer of 15K as is, they regret not taking it now. She needs a serious wash down inside & out, engine repair, otherwise great.

Different people, different boat; but, yes.

The YW description says "wood" for hull material, but the photos look like glass or maybe cold-molded. Whatever, $15K or less sounds like a good buy. This older retired fart would love it. Too bad it's 3,000 miles away.

Trying to convince my dad that this is a good retirement boat... possible elder abuse.

Let me know if I can help. Sounds like it could be a project with a happy ending.

Ooh.... hadn’t realized that. Great candidate for an electric conversion too. Hmm...

EIDER is the little woodie in the background here. I was rowing back to the docks last week and she startled me in the channel on her way out. She's now electric and my rowlocks were making more noise.

She's of lovely almost miniature scale but is no toy. Freeboard is just above a low floating dock. She had a diesel back when my dog was inspecting the bulwarks.

Small but a serious no-nonsense boat.

EIDER on the stern is spelled out in simple small bronze letters. She will always be EIDER, that's assured by her bronze bowsprit end fitting.

Thora, a Ted Hood yawl, popped up in my Instagram feed the other day. 

My boat didn't like my reaction...

Wow.  

Yeah, you gotta look at that stuff in private you know.  Keep it out of your search history too.

Is she from this little Stadel Pilot Boat plan?

She's one of my favorites.  Love the end fitting.

Sorry, but that is a total fail.
