Re: CT Owner Group

My CT-49 was designed by Kaffman and Ladd and built in Tai Chou yard in Taiwan.

Re: CT Owner Group

Hi James of Arctic Lady, I looked at your (boat's) photos, very nice!
However the CT 48 that is advertised for sale in Vanuatu is definitely different from yours:
* this one is not a double ender: it has windows (too big to be called portholes) in the stern
* has a clipperbow (your's is more spoon shaped)
* has a cutter rig (yours's is a ketch)
* long fin keel with rudder on skeg (your's is long keel with rudder on the end)
* the only other photos I could find (similar to that so called "CT 48" boat in vanuatu) is an expired/sold boat with "de Valk" brokers in Holland
* "sailboatdata" has a drawing of a similar yacht (with windows in stern and clipper bow, long fin keel, with skeg), but rigged as a ketch.

So for me the questions still remains: what does a CT 48 looks like. If it is like Arctic Lady, then the other ones may not be CT 48s.......

Re: CT Owner Group

Mine is a 78 and as you're seen very classic lines…but I think I've seen a 79 that was totally different and still called CT48 with much more modern lines…like the one you've described..Guessing it depends on the year?

Re: CT Owner Group

Mrs Flare and I are the owners of a Formosa 41, S/V Mistress.

Our boat came with the belly fuel tank removed and I have a question regarding the dimensions of that iron fuel tank.

Can anyone here with a CT 41 or a Formosa 41 give me the dimensions of their belly fuel tank?

Re: CT Owner Group

I cant, but one thing to keep in mind...: how much fuel do you really want to carry? It depends on where you are cruising I guess. But I have found that often I have too much fuel capacity... the fuel gets old and I use very little. Just a thought. You could put two standard size plastic smaller tanks in the big tank cavity. Not even fill the second one unless you are taking a long trip. Various forms of dunnage/wood or other means can be used to keep the tanks in place.

Re: CT Owner Group

i have removed the pos pick up truck fuel tank in the belly on my formosa 41--i will be building a new tank, and i will post the pix and info and specifications as i go.
hoping to be able to put 100 gallons, but i am not sure what i can squeeze into the space.. is gonna be fg tank, fit the boat kind, non removable. built inside boat, as there is no way to put more than 44 gal tank thru any of the hatches, as far as i can see....

Mrs. Flare and I did a trip from Long Beach, MS to Massachusetts with a 15 gallon fuel tank of which, heeled over, about 9 or 10 gallons were useable. This meant adding a 5 gallon jerry jug worth of fuel every 6 to 8 hours under power. As a result of our small fuel tank and the fact that we don't like to run the engine anyway, we tend to wait for the wind to come up or ghost along at 3 knots rather than turn on the engine.

Two smaller tanks in the belly is a great idea I hadn't thought of. Thank you.

Thank you Zeehag. I'll look forward to pics and specs.

I have a new yahoo email address but the links to sign up for the Leaky Teaky Yacht Club aren't working for me. The link you have in your signature also does not work for me.

In the meantime I have remembered my old yahoo email address and I've been guessing at the password. I'll get it soon.
