Re: Head/Shower on 74 Hallberg-Rassy Rasmus 35

Thanks so much for all the responses. I passed on the HR-Rasmus, a little too small of a living space. Looks like I'm still on the hunt. Anyone who knows of a 32-40 foot boat in the price range if the HR in the link, boat available in the North East, drop me line. I've got my eye on a few Pearsons and Bristols, dime a dozen here in MA.....

Also Catalina 36 - 38 or Hunter 40 - 42 would probably meet your size needs.

Re: Head/Shower on 74 Hallberg-Rassy Rasmus 35

Catalina's and Hunters are on my list, not quite the draft I'm looking for though. Trying to keep it under 6'. Nice Hunter for sale up here I'm going to look at next week.

In a previous life, I met Donald Street (A Cruising Guide to The Lesser Antilles) aboard his Iolaire, a true motorless yawl. Donald was a Yawl evangelist, bragging about why the Yawl was the perfect cruising rig... I remember that one of his argument was that he would keep his mizzen up when anchored to prevent Iolaire from tacking on its anchor in windy anchorages

Yes, that's confusing to the average sailor, it's a Yawl, but advertised as a Ketch?

Those line drawings make it look more like a yawl with the after mast being so short.

Interesting, no shower?
My Mariner 32, ketch has a shower, in the pass thru head. As well a grey water tank provision for the sump pump, plumbed to the shower pan, and a grating to stand on.

Looking at this drawing http://www.lochin.com/ybroker/show_p...82&pic_width=0, I believe it is a ketch... the mizzen is forward the rudder post, but aft the wheel. Also on pics I saw, the mizzen mast was forward the aft/coffin cabin. But I think you are on to something, adding a yawl config to the sloop could add flexibility.

Technically it's a ketch.

That's why I encourage people to include a picture or a drawing when they're talking technical issues... In general, with furling genoas & furling staysails, high tech masts & main slab reefing, we see less & less schooners, yawls & ketches even among the Bucket Race 100 footers where we see more & more sloops & cutters such as in the picture I took, below where a "nouveau riche" dare to overtake "my" Meteor Schooner, one of the most beautiful sailboat I've ever seen... Last time I heard about it, it was for sale for 25 millions €uros**

And for people among us who loves schooners, here's a gorgeous one:
