It looks like Steady Hand
beat me to the best tip which came to mind on this, which is to go to www.BlueWaterBoats.com
& do a search for Hans Christians --> Search Results
= Since when you search for a particular design on that site, it'll find what you're looking for, boat wise. And it'll also show you several other boats which are similar to the one your studying (searching for). So that'll help you to find more boats of a particular (similar) type.
Also, when you just do a standard online search for reviews
on a specific boat design, often times in the reviews
that you'll find, several other boats of the type which is in the review are listed. Especially in say reviews done in Cruising World
magazine, with their "Classic Plastic" column, & reviews being the epitome there of. And it's a good column, without question.
I'd check Bob (Robert) Perry's blog, & website as well. Since he's reviewed even more boats than he's designed. http://perryboat.sail2live.com/ http://www.perryboat.com/
Also, he's very active over on Sailing Anarchy Forums www.forums.sailinganarchy.com
And too, add www.SailboatData.com
to your list of useful tools. As they have the specifications for thousands of boats listed. Often with a "Cliff Notes" sized blurb on the design too.
And not to wreck your dream. But while you may be somewhat familiar with the perils of having a lot of teak on a boat's topsides. There's a more insidious use of teak: And that's in decks. Since at some point in a boat's life, the fasteners holding the teak onto the underlying substrata, usually marine plywood
, will begin to leak. Then after a while rot
will then begin to form in the plywood
, or worse, the plywood & a balsa core
underneath of it. With the required fix for this being brutal from both a man hours, & the grueling nature of the work standpoint. As well as being crazy expensive.
You can read about the process of fixing such decks in many threads here on the forums
. So that at a minimum you can make informed decisions when boat shopping
. And possibly (preferably) learn to pass on boats with teak decks.
