Re: Any ideas on what type of boat this is?

sigh... Well, good to know that, as always, our sense of taste is much larger than our wallet. Thank you for finding out who she was though! I'd been wondering for two years now.

Re: Any Ideas on What Type of Boat 'this' Is ?

Alondra has 2 masts, that picture in the thread shows one mast so not the same boat at all. I dont think my eyes are that bad, or am I missing something here??

Yes, you are missing something! Or/And bad eyes?

She has one (1) mast. At least now. Don't mix up other photo's on the same page.

Here have a look: Alondra Sailing - exclusive charter

Enjoy, she is still beautiful and for sale. (yes Gord?)

Agreed...she's absolutely beautiful. I'll recheck the finances, but I don't think we can buy her this week..

Edited to add that even were it not for the price, her size eclipses our experience level which, currently, sums up at about......zero.

Find a boat and jump on! Certainly learning on 60' would be tough but you'd be prepared for anything! :-)

Now who could argue logic like that? lol I'll take it! Seriously, if we could find a 50' that wouldn't sail us blithely into bankruptcy, we'd be all over it like a fat kid on a smartie.

There are deals out there. It just takes time to determine what you want. You won't get experience on land. Even beer can races are good experience. I've learned some good things in this environment even though I have my own boat. Racers are typically good sailors. Just be ready for STARBOARD!! <crunch>. I avoid collisions they old their course if within the rules. Just my $.02.

The boat is just beautiful but I wouldn't/couldn't deal with all the teak.

There's a thread here

Cruising on 500 a month in the general sailing topic I believe. You should really check out pages 35 to 40. It is really a good read about going on the cheap.
I got my 1972 Conyplex contest 33 for 2800 dollars from a charity. So the good old boats are out there and it is a buyers market right now.

Cruising on $500 per Month . . .
