LM Motorsailer(s)


Posted this also on Sailnet...

I'm looking for some guide regarding LM motorsailers as a possibility for offshore sailing - specifically anyone who has owned one, or has had some experience around them...perhaps a co-cruiser.

Mahina's guide lists it as a suggestion, and comps seems to indicate that it is in the middle of the measurements of a good cruiser. However, finding anyone who has had any real experience has been extremely difficult to locate.

I'm especially concerned about the cockpit size, drainage, and how one would go about building out a bridge deck of some size for her.
I would also like to receive any knowledge about the sail drive system and offshore work. I realize there are posts around already regarding the validity of sail drives, but these seem to be focused on less ambitious courses than offshore work moving UP and OFFSHORE of California to Washington / BC for my own example.

Additionally, if there are any other concerns about her hull structure to look out for, please let me know.

Cruise layout and mod suggestions are also helpful.
