  1. longy, Was the captain's named Dan?
  2. Maui Fire Bird had a teak cabin and no hull ports
  3. I sailed on a Custom Columbia 50 in Maui cira 1978 named Fire Bird, sure looks like this one.
  4. Two Legged, I have to agree this is not the boat I'm after.
  5. Thanks 12 I'll add this to my list
  6. Floater, Nice boat, but a bit more complex than my needs. Keep the information flow coming!
  7. Jud, Very helpful stuff.
  8. Jud Thanks for the link. Why are most of the cool boats not were I am. Might have to travel to France, or find a West coast builder. But you are answering my questions re. a modern Corsaire.
  9. Thanks Matigi I'll look into these Panoramix I am aware that Corsaire's are still active, might have to buy one in France to get one. Of have one built here on the West coast.
  10. Doug, Intended use would not include 1-2 week outings, As to conditions under which it would be operated in, I currently sail out of Ventura and it would be nice/fun to be able to sail out of these ports. Local conditions can vary through out the year so the ability to handle some weather would be welcome, but I have no plans for heavyer weather. The idea is, the ability to take the vessel to various locations PNW, Gulf of California, inland lakes. Thus the ramp launch ability. Perhaps a very occasional over night trip. Small and on the light side allows a smaller tow vehicle as well. Oft
  11. Nope, much more boat then I'm after. Think smaller and simplerer.
  12. Well, it appears that my lovely 45er will have found a new custodian. So, what’s next? Here are my thoughts; 18-22 feet, trailer ramp launchable, small cabin with 2 bunks, porta potty, ice chest, single burner (jet boil), light weight rig (possibly carbon) that is easy/fast to set up, ability to power with electric out board. My first boat was a Jean-Jacques Herbulot designed Corsair. This boat was designed in 1954, but to my eye still looks fresh. Now I realize boat design has advanced more than a little over the last 67 years but this design offers many of the features I am seeking. Ok
