I will be looking at a couple of boats this coming week. Does anyone have an opinion on the merits, or otherwise, of boats from the 2 builders ?

Thanks

I believe the Henderson boats will be lighter. Send a PM to Sol Rosenberg if you don't hear anything else, he is knowledgeable about the various SR designs. I've spent a bit of time on a SR33 and can say they are built well, designs were ahead of their time and they are fun boats but they are heavier than they look.

I owned an original Henderson SR Max 21 two decades ago. Loved it. Hated to sell her. But I had to.

Might help of you gave us the era and model of the C&C you're interested in as there is a wide variance.

It is still not clear to me what C&C you are looking at (length / model / year).

SR 21--heavier than the Viper...probably a bit better upwind in slop. Rating ought to make up the difference in speed. SR 21 is not as wet as the Viper & should be better in the light stuff---it is a Henderson design, afterall. BTW, Glenn oversaw the build. C& C built a nice 25-probably the 21 is good too. If the price is good, get it...if not, get a viper 630.

Right on the SR 25. One (Hull # 2) in So Cal (no windows) and Hull #1 w/windows as of 6 mo. ago in Miami or nearby there. Both built by C&C. Wonderful boat! Rumors persist of hull #3 (no deck-it melted/burned in the fire) being somewhere on a lake in east Idaho or somewhere...If anyone knows...PM me details/contact info, etc. Thanks!

I'm not planning on advertizing 'til spring, but my SRMax (SR 21) is available. This was Glenn Henderson's personal boat (purple hull), later turbo'd by Kokopelli with a carbon mast and big asym kite on a canting bowsprit. Fun boat, just don't find time to sail it enough, so it should go to someone who will.

The blue boat may be in Tampa now as 'Ruckus'.

From my understanding at the time the SR molds were outside the buildings and did not burn. Someone even was attempting to build 21's a few years ago.

I have a paper copy of the owners manual, and a few tuning notes that were not all that useful. PM me and we'll figure out how to get you a copy.

C&C SR25. Only two made, #1 is Ruckus in Florida, and #2 is Misque in Marina Del Ray California, I was out last week, couldn't see it from the road. I don't believe any more survived the fire.

SR 27, apparently 9 were built. There is one for sale in Florida right now in the SA classifies.

SR 33... no idea how many were made, I have only found a half dozen or so that race PHRF and have a rating, there is a video of one in the Chicago Mac.

SR Max> versus C&C SR21. The C&C is about 20 lbs lighter than the SR Sailboats version (1,360 vs 1,380lbs) apparently build quality was a little rough, particularly inside fininshes of the C&Cs. I would suggest either boat is fine, given the price and age of the fleet. I also have the owner's manual, class rules and a blueprint of the mast - same Kenyon section as a Shark.

I really love my SR, I have seen a few of them that have been "altered" with a bowsprit and Melges 20 sized Asym. They are pretty fun stock, I have hit 10 knots is 18 knots of wind with just a jib/main. A little wet and difficult to work on unless in the water, but they are real gems!

P,  how does your turbo'ed SR do with the breeze and asym up?   ie,  are you able to keep the bow from Submarining?

What does a carbon spar, articulating bowsprit SR 21 rate?

 

I saw Rob Butler's SR 21 with a fixed sprit in Collingwood (Georgian Bay).  I believe he was gifted a 165 PHRF rating.

The local PHRF had me level with the U20s, I never raced it enough to get that adjusted.

Those kind of conditions don't happen too often on the river where I sail (and I admit I really didn't sail the boat enough... so its forsale).

 

 

There's a long-quiet Yahoo group for the SR 21 / SR Max.   With people turbo'ing them now, it might be time to get that group woken up.  http://groups.yahoo....p/srmax21class/

Bellum - The Beaver's Rating for 2012 was 159 (not 165 - which is a stock SR 21's 2013 rating).  PHRF-LO has caught up to all of the changes and it rates 147 this year, although it still is missing the -6 for the fat head main.

Bellum - Phil boat rates 135, 186 - It gets dings for the Carbon Mast (-6), Main (-9), oversized spin (-24), and +9 for a jib off at std 165. 

I'd buy it from Phil - my wife would kill me though.

If it is seriously for sale (i.e. reasonably priced) I may be interested.  I regret selling #86 awhile ago.  Need to move a Hobie 33 first though, I don't want to contract polynavicular morbus.  http://forums.sailin...s"#entry3978130

a thousand bucks off if I don't have to store the boat this winter...  $7950 will take it.

 

Great boat, the fall breeze is here, someone ought to buy it and go sailing!

 

If I still have it next spring I might just change my mind and keep it!
