You are right in everyway Capt Lar. I do have some info regarding the "Big Girl", as you call her.L.O.A.=12.3m, 40ft.;L.W.L.=9.8m, 32ft2in.;beam=3.5m,11ft.6in.;draught1.5m,4ft.11in. ,displacment10400kg.,10.3tons,sail area 63.6sq. m,685sq.ft.
She did come with a fairly new Volvo
4 banger, but she is still on land and needs to have the rigging
stepped, so the true testing is yet to come. Not much chance to check things out as she came available as the result of an estate sale
, and the price
was a steal. I'll keep you informed as I make the discoveries. One problem already is that I live on the lower eastern shore of Md and the boat is on the hard
just south of Baltimore
. I will probably paint
her bottom, lash the rigging
firmly to the deck
, and motor
down here to do the rest.
