I love it! The real world.... for all we know Guido's victim is in the deck core!

Hello Bob,

I have hull #114 (built 1978).
Do you have any thoughts on whether the first method (assume mine was done that way) is more or less resistant to deck problems later on. My deck doesn't feel egregious yet, but I have always assumed I will have to do the lift, scoop, rebed ... eventually.

Kind regards,
Scott

Thanks you guys. The pleasure is mine.
However, I am under the gun today as I leave for two weeks vacation tomorow. I'll have to catch up on the questions when I return. I'm taking my lap top but I really don't want to do any work. With any luck I'll stay too drunk to type.

Sneu:
I think that simple way of building a deck was a pretty good method. It was heavy but done correctly there was not much chance water could travel from one square of core to the next. I am not aware of any rampant deck core issues with any of the Tayanas.

ORION: I'd like to see pics of your boat. From what I see it's a great looking boat.

Re: Hans Christian and Tayana owners!

Dear Tayana Owners:

Any one out there own a Tayana 48' Pilot House? looking at a 1993 thinking about retiring and doing the ICW and near Coastal to US.

Have questions about the sailing ability?
Have questions do I really need this large of a boat, seems like a lot of nice room but not sure how are to get into tight anchorages etc.?

I have been on 42 foot boats in the open ocean and they seem to be the right size and 48 foot is not that much larger any input or opinions would be great information for me.

I do not want to buy a mistake
Thanks! Ron

Re: Hans Christian and Tayana owners!

That's a BIG boat for your goals, Beautiful though. For the waterway...watch the mast height...be nice to have it at 65 ft or less and the draft less than 6 ft. Less draft, like 5 ft will be an assett getting into anchorages etc too. I've had monos to 47 feet. I felt the 47 was a little large for me. I kind of like the 40-42 size... but that Tayana is a beauty. ( i was originally thinking about another design...so edited this) Not sure about sailing ability, but I would guess with it's heritage it does pretty well for a cruiser...

Re: Hans Christian and Tayana owners!

I lived on a Tayana 37 for about 2 years or so in Florida. Good boats. I would have no problem (well other then money) in buying one again. Tankage rusting/ failing was an issue, but most have been replaced already. Lots of teak, Interiors were finished very well. Lots of storage. Teak decks would be an issue with core leaks. The 85 we had had plywood core, btw (installed a new deck fitting, but THICK decks

Oh the 12V panel (85 tayana 37) used 12 gauge wire daisy chained on the hot side of the breakers. OK in 85, way undersized nowadays. We replaced it with #8 or #6 I think. Caused too much voltage drop with the 12V refrig, etc.

Not fast boats in winds under 12 knots. But again, I would buy one again, if it was the right one

Was on a Toshiba 40, A very nice boat. THAT would be a great boat to own. Very Sweet.

I would vote for Toshiba first (by a mile) then HC's then Tayana's.

Re: Hans Christian and Tayana Owners

Looking at the 48 on line it's a very modern looking design, (if I'm looking at the right model!) Kinda like a Hylas etc, unlike the old 37 double enders.... that's why I modified my post!

Re: Hans Christian and Tayana Owners

Evidently, Bob Perry’s original specifications called for 70′ air draft, but many were built with Intracoastal rigs of 64′ clearance.
Perhaps Bob will chime in?

Re: Hans Christian and Tayana Owners

Yes you are correct this boat has the 64 foot mast and draft of 6'

Was interested in the sailing performance and any other operational details before I make a final decision on the boat.

I would appreciate any feed back.

Thanks much!
Ron

Not trying to steal anyones thread but could I ask you why you think Toshiba by a mile? Is it looks, layout, or preformance ? Or some other reason. You peaked my interest??
Thanks
Dave

Re: Hans Christian and Tayana Owners

I think the thread flipped from a more modern 48 footer to an older style 37 just because they both happen to have the Tayana name. The Hans Christian is likely even more different performance wise than the T37 is... kind like the same boat as the T37 only even heavier! The Tayana 48 appears (based only on a very quick look) to be more in the Passport, Hylas, etc etc vein than the full (ish) keel double ender style.

Re: Hans Christian and Tayana Owners

On the Toshiba or the one I was on, it had a more modern feel, while still having a fair amount of brightwork (but not too much) The interior is hum..updated I guess, and it has better tankage. Not really any faster on a sail perhaps.

Thanks I really appreciate your opinion. I am not familiar with the Toshiba and wondered what attracted you to it.
Sincerely
Dave
