I too got a great deal on a Pacific 30, hull
#2. The vessel has a kubota 23 HP engine
(Hursrt 50 2:1) which is more than enough for this hull. I traded up from a Haida 26, another vessel also designed by Ray Richards. I absolutely loved the Haida (#7), but the family
and a quarterbirth.
is pretty sparse on any information regarding the vessel. Fortunately there are 3 other Pacific owners at the club who are generous with info. Anyone find a good website, or source of drawings for this vessel?
So far I am delighted with the vessel. I'm attracted to older classic "things' (cars, houses, furniture and boats) so the lines are right in line with my tastes. The boat sails
far better than I had expected and at least as well as the Haida. This Pacific is very plain below decks,which facilitates a slighter displacement
of approximately 8300 lbs. The boat is still heavy enough for a stable ride in a bit of a blow.
I do agree with one response in that the chainplates appear somewhat underbuilt relative to the rest of the boat. The plates on this vessel are easily accessable and would be easy to beef up or replace.
