Here's 3 pics of a Hans Christian 38T with a hard dodger that looks good. It is built in composite.

Can't get more pictures - they are between Mexico and the Marquesas currently.

And the acrylic panes can be replaced by any sailmaker. Minimum cost and good as new for 3 to 5 years depending on where you live. We replaced the acrylic in our old dodger and it did feel a huge change and well worth the minimum cash outlay.

Hard tops have some + and some -. Good to have one but think twice about how big / deep / high and what materials to use. The best stuff is probably done in sandwich composite.

You do want the best dodger of you fave style - if it rains a lot where you sail.

Very sweet boat! Congartulations!

Thanks b! Good tip on the acrylic window replacement, might be worthwhile to get done while I figure out the hard dodger.

That Hans Christian dodger looks great (so does the boat too)! I was thinking of making mine the same height/incorporated with the boom crutch for visibility, but going lower like that might be even better. I'll have to take my dodger off and try to do some sort of mock up so see which gives me the best visibility.

Re: Got a plastic classic?

This is my classic... just finished refit Phase 1 last summer, now moving to the cockpit and below decks. Allied Luders 33, she is 50 this year, born at the Allied plant in Catskill, NY in 1967.

Re: Got a plastic classic?

My friends are sailing the Pacific right now in a Cheoy Lee. Very much like the boat posted above. I think must be the same designer.

They are very happy with their boat. They got her very abandoned, fixed her up very well. Now sailing the dream. They will be able to re-sell their boat at profit too!

Makes my heart grow to watch that so many of those beautiful boats find new loving owners!

Re: Got a plastic classic?

Went out last weekend and my buddy with a Cheoy Lee Luders 30 and I shot photos of each other. I was impressed how fast his boat was with its cruising main and old jib!

If images like yours do not make people itch for a voyage ... nothing does!

I re-post as I find the picture the have-it-all of why we sail, cruise and live!

Love,

In order of size,


oDay 11 1960-ish not really an oDay, the name was licensed)
1969 Seapsrite 23 (Carl Alberg design), powered with a 1957 Johnson 6hp.
1979 Standfast 33 (Frans Maas design) repowered with a W21.


Those are my GRP boats

Re: Got a plastic classic?

I have one.. A 1975 Bristol 28. The B28 seems to have been a prototype for the B29.9 as only a handful were manufactured between 1972-1975. I just purchased her and she's going through a minor refit now. Hope to be on the water in 2 months.

Can't figure out how to embed pics.....

Re: Got a plastic classic?



I had one of these when I was 12!

What real boat do you think it was modeled after?

Has anyone else owned a 1964 Eldon Toy Sailboat?
Is that were we got the plastic classic fever from?

Don't know which boat it is but I like the part about "it really sails!" See? Even tiny models of the classics really sail! A ringing endorsement of the classics!
