Steel would be a good choice.

Ahh yes the ol' Snowbird - still on market. No junkies for me, though.

I see some nice ones up north today though. Really sweet ones. Seriously, I think there are some serious cruising deals in steel on market.

OK, I won't post it again (provided I don't have a CRS bout.) Sorry to tweak you.

But still, it's a sweet little boat. Easy handling. You could slide in and out of harbors like nothing.

Just right for a single hander.

Clearly I am having all kinds of trouble handling my 44' in the marina and am wishing I had something more "handy." Then on an ocean crossing, I'd be rethinking my decision once again.

hPeer - thought you had a Murray 33 - steel isnt it?

Yes the goosie is a very very lovely boat. I do admire her.

But, if you're going to go junk, check this one out - sweeeeet!!!!

Good God man, don't let my wife see that! She really, really likes the Gazzell junk schooner. We looked at one but she wasn't taken with the berth.

Yes - MY boat is a steel Murray 33. 18 ton

HER boat is a steel 44' Alan Pape - 44 ton - full keel with attached rudder and 28' FRP fender.

Don't ask how or why we ended up with two boats, steel boats to boot, just accept it was cheaper than divorce.

The Pardey's boat - why build if you can buy one:

http://www.samlmorse.com/?a=bristol_cutter

Wild Eyes - why buy a wreck @90k if can get the new thing @180k:
2007 Open 40 Pogo Sail Boat For Sale - www.yachtworld.com

BTW none qualifies - one too small and slow, the other too expensive. Pretty furniture though.

barnakiel:

Bristol channel cutter - good boat, but an over priced antique and that bowsprit is wave-bait.

Open 40 - waned a bit for my needs as its a lousy sailer.

A man who doesn't love a bowsprit has no soul

BTW "Crew" is ancient Greek for: "fell off bowsprit"

I don't mind bowsprits, just not the longer bowsprits bigger than my ____.

The pogo will be good if you like staying upside down after a capsize.

Yes, indeed! And the pogo will give you lots of opportunity to do just that!

Only if you do not know how to drive one.

Believe me, it is very difficult to capsize an Open 40.

Read "A world of my own" By Robin Knox Johnston. He was the 1st man to circumnavigate non stop alone. About 1967. Try to find the first edition.
