Morning all. New to CF, (so play nice), have just read PlumKrazy's thread and having changed into some dry underwear (you lot can be cutting!) I have a question.
My wife, dog and I are in the early stages of planning a move from our lagoon
42 to a longer monohull
for global aspirations. Once the tut-tutting from the Cat Cabal has quietened, I can find little to better the Discovery 58 for ergonomcs and short-handed operation (I have to sail the Lagoon
one-up most of the time, vodka is the curse of the crewing
class). There are several other contenders and yard visits, shows and test sails
are all in the offing.
I then came across PlumKrazy and Dorade-gate, which in turn led me to Pacific Seacraft
, a brand I am unfamiliar with, being UK based. I found the renderings of the South Seas 61 achingly beautiful, albeit sail handling and the hard dodger
may have to be re-designed, but can find no further pics/info.
Can someone out there suggest further links, sources of info (short of contacting them direct - I have another US builder
stalking me and bombarding me with sales calls). Are there other suggestions from across the Pond in this size, type, use, that members may have (not Hylas).
I hope this post is not construed as lazy surfing on my part, it is purely that I have garnered much valuable info over the last few months via CF.
