How 'bout a Rawson 30' ?

Okay fellow cruisers, Sharon and I are continuing our search for a "new" boat, and we have found a nice little pilothouse sloop that appears to fill most of our wants. It's a 1979 Rawson R30. 6 tons, full keel, 5' draft. It's on This would be replacing our recently sold Morgan 41OI for a trip down the west coast, WA to Baja-ha! Please give me your professional (or not) opinion on this Rawson, we appreciate you all!!!!

God bless! Bob

Looks like a pretty stout boat. I don't know them except by reputation. Pretty nice pocket cruiser. May get a little cramped OTH it will be a lot cheaper to maintain than the OI 41.
Fair Winds,


Between us there was, as I have already said somewhere, the bond of the sea. Besides holding our hearts together through long periods of separation, it had the effect of making us tolerant of each other's yarns -- and even convictions. Heart of Darkness
