Hate on my new that 70's boat...

Recommended Posts

I just acquired this 79' S2 11.0 ranch house...

it isn't as sharp looking as my 9.2a  but, it has way more room below, HP behind the steps and lead in the bottom...This boat appeals to me greatly for a lot of reasons....including my rapidly developing elderly sense of style...and the burnt orange decor below...

I am definitely getting a shag rug for below...and rig some lava lamps for cabin lights...

I should start a blog...the cool kids these days all have blogs on the inner-web.

Those are well built and nice interiors.  There were blisters issues but that should have been taken care of long ago.  I think they are similar to the 10.3 which is a bit more racey.  Really glad it's not the center cockpit and those are seriously fugly.  There is a 10.3 here that I sailed/raced on for several years in the 90s.  I like it.

Sadly...I don't think my partner is going to allow the burnt orange to stay permanently. (but those upgrades are low on the list)

I was a 70's teen and my mom loved burnt orange, harvest gold and avocado...so....I am right at home.

Your partner is way too tolerant.  I would kill it with fire, as the very first step of ownership

Hah...he has already been shopping for new counter tops and fabrics...that was the first thing he said....

"Oh this 70's shit has got to go."

I said, "Noooooo, I liked the 70's"  lol....

Well....until we redo the cushions, curtains and counters (The 3 c's) I want to have fun with the vintage style it has...for the first couple seasons he's gonna be our waterfront condo, while I get the sailing systems in shape...there is some work to be done there...

I think I have found Arthur Edmunds muse for the 11.0's design....

El Dorado is on the list of names now..

I was going with a Mythical Paradise theme...

Avalon

Arcadia

Cockaigne

(I sailed on a 72' ketch in Lake Superior in the 70's called "The Pride of the Cockaigne", I got a taste of big boat helm, tacking that boat all day from Bayfield to Rasberry island at 14 years old...)

El Camino is another nice name, and very '70s. Burnt Orange was a color option:

Looks like a early-to-mid '80s build.  I guess the '70's hung around longer out in New Holland, MI.

Good looking boat,  nice pick up,  enjoy - I put some miles on a 9.2A of that vintage,  yea - sailed just fine.

Someone needs to slap a preservation order on that boat, it’s a historically significant interior...

Even has clean mouse fur on the walls...

When our eldest son asked the inevitable question about the circumstances of his conception, we started with “well, there was this really soft shag pile carpet on the floor”.

Too much information, we didn’t have to go any further....

Now if the lava was white, you could hang it in the rigging as a trippy anchor light.

Now all you need is to put mirrors up on the bulkheads and cabin top.   The finishing touch would be mounting a clockwork motor between the mirror and the coach ceiling, and attach  the bottom half of a disco ball to the clockwork.   The mirror will make it look like a full ball and it will be not swinging around like a hanging ball would and also give a little more headroom for dancers.

Ready for those 70's nights!

That reminds me of the famous sailing misanthrope Bill Tilman to new crew members “what I want from you is silence and not too much of it either”.

The funniest thing I heard on a rail, addressed to a "team leader" type, but just out of his clear hearing, was "there's no letter i in the word cunt". Sorry for the obscenity: reported speech, not in my vocabulary really, but it was beatifully done.

When we got together I promised Mrs Ed that I would never shout at her on the boat - the best sailing lesson I ever got, incidentally - and I have never broken that promise. It doesn't apply to unloading tensions by shouting out of the boat: in a classic yott regatta I found myself shouting "For fuck's sake" at another helmsman before remembering the nature of the fleet, and added "sir" to the end of it. FSSS became an acronym of choice for a while to describe another boat's unexpected manoeuvre.

Even worse was when I completely messed up a mark rounding, and we went from hero to also-ran. As we got it back together I apologised to our lovely crew, and got back on with it. We passed an angling boat shortly after, and I surprised myself by responding to some very low level abuse from them by dropping the tiller and standing up and screaming at them that they could "Stick their fucking rods up their fucking arses." It took me by surprise as much as it did everyone else, and the funniest part of it was when I turned back to the crew looking for approval and everyone was suddely looking at their fingernails intently, or watching the tumbleweeds blow by. Good times...

I have aspired to refrain from the use of more creative vulgar invectives over my life, but that filter has worn down over time.    I do not abuse crew, but boat to boat contact will get me vocally questioning the other helmsman's competency.

I grew up crewing on my father's Morgan 24 racing in MORC.   During all those hundreds of hours of being on the boat, I don't think that I had ever heard him cuss or curse.   I had someone later in life said that my father was the "nicest man ever to cut a throat, sailing wise, that he ever met."    I called him "Polite Cutthroat" on several occasions after that.

I do like your F-Squared S-Squared acronym, (and F-Squared SM, for the ladies.)   I will store that in my vocabulary for later use.

Mount the disco ball. Name the boat "Boogie Nights" (..Nauts?). You get to keep the burnt orange interior and shagalicious ceilings then, it's all part of the theme...

Disco ball goes on the first spreader. Duh. 

Some cheesy movie showed a refrigerator-light disco ball. Nothing in the fridge but three “Tabs”. Genius!

 

our burnt orange counter tops that we built in 1970 still look great!  Sadly, my 1971boat came with “crisp linen” Formica, which is an order of magnitude more bland than beige.

You know you can brush that with the edge of a propane flame and it will look great? You can also paint your lead keel with the latest designer colours. Sorry, not available in the USA.

Dear Mr/Ms. Odland,

In spite of your request for us to hate on your newly acquired vessel, no one here has. Don't take that as evidence that we actually like your vessel.  We don't.  But asking for one thing here is 100% guaranteed to get you something else entirely. Nearly all poster here are affected by Oppositional Defiant Disorder https://www.additudemag.com/screener-oppositional-defiant-disorder-symptoms-test-adults/ which drives them to live in Opposite World and say how much they like your boat.

But I am different.  I am nice. And I hate your butt ugly '70s floating garbage patch with its hideous pimp Cadillac interior.

The boat's lines reminds me of a stronger, better Catalina 30 (yes, I know 11.0 is 36 feet.)  That is to say, lots of room down below while looking decent.

With an SA/D of 16.5 it might need some breeze to get going but I'll bet it'll feel safe in a strong breeze. I'm looking at the line drawings. Is the rudder really that small or is that just a failure to scale the drawing? I feel like it should be a little deeper but I'm no naval architect.

I think  that is accurate on rudder size...

The reviews and past owner reflection confirms it is not a light air mover...it is heavy and requires some wind to get her going but is sturdy and smooth in rough conditions, and as Lake Michigan sailors know there is plenty of that...

Good choice. I like Col. Mathieu from The Battle of Algiers - how cool does he look slow-marching is paratroopers down the street? But I'm not hard enough to say things like, "Should we remain in Algeria? If you answer "yes," then you must accept all the necessary consequences."

Bob...was his name.

The steer left in a trailor with my brother one day.

We picked him up a week or so later. 

My mom made me write BOB on the white packages with a marker as we tossed the frozen bundles into the deep freeze.

Over the next year we ate him, bit by bit until all that was left was stewing meat and suet.

My steer we kept as a pet for years.

Since the advent of the sister-in-law, we are no longer allowed to eat anything with a name.  That we know of.  

The last one is still her 2000-lb dog.  That thing must be something like 16 or 17 years old now.  He won't hang out with the nameless ones either.  "Dude, get away from me. I'm a dog!"

Too big for a boat - you need one of these.

Crew Outfits

I know you boys are going to jump at the chance to hang with Skipper Eva this next season....here are some outfit selections to choose from.

The onsie is cute and practical for summer sailing and a hot night dancing at the club...The Orange Color Block Tunic paired with the zig zag poncho would make a nice outfit for shore cocktails, when the cool lake breezes set in after dark. 

And when it is time for quiet with a nice glass of wine and some jazz, satin PJs of course...
