I would look at the Cape George cutters, if you can afford one. Very solid and traditional. I don't know about the headroom.

My Columbia 30 had 6'1", so I imagine the larger Columbias will have more. I personally like the 43's & 50's

Curmudgeon- i like the way cutters sail in general, the cape george is on the list only if the prices is right. for the money i think you can get a better boat though, my 2 cents...

imagine2frolic- 6'1" is not quite enough headroom...not bad, but at 6'3" it would still be a neck bender. and 43' and 50' are a good 10' too much boat for me. thanks for the suggestions though.

There was some former discussion in regards to the Rawson 30 pilothouse. I just bought her. I'll let you know how it turns out.

She looks nicely proportioned

And a "proper" keel

This is my 3rd full keel boat. While they may be a little tough to park, they make up for it in stability. I also had a modified fin with skeg. It was a good boat also.

Congrats on the boat. It looks in great condition. You'll find shes one of the driest boats in a blow you will ever own, but she will hobby horse a little in certain wave spacing. From the underbody and rudder... looks like one of the later ones.

Thanks Cheechako...She is a 1977, Pilothouse #4. Do you still have one?

No, got rid of mine in the late 80's, took her down to Mexico and back up to San Diego, then shipped here back to Seattle from there. Mine had the Volvo MD2B in it and cement /iron ballast. When Rawson when out of business (~84?)I went to the auction and bought the updated rudder like yours has and replaced the original which was kind of rounded shaped. The boat came with new Schautthauer Sails on it which was a nice thing. Are you in Hawaii?

Yes...I'm in Hawaii, the boats in NY and I am moving it to CA. Go figure! I had Schautthauer sails on the Ingrid 38 ketch I had. Tough sails. I plan on moving to Ca this year sometime

Kafka,
To answer you question about the CSY 33. No, it is not a pilothouse. It is a raised salon and offers the headroom you need. It should meet your criteria, if you can find one in good shape. They are very well constructed boats and blue water capable. If you want to race, don't buy one. They are not light air boats as they weigh close to 10 tons. Like you, I looked around for a long time before settling on a CSY. I originally liked the Pearson 365 and quite frankly, still do. But, the CSY offered many things the others did not, as in 3 steps down rather than 6 or 7. For me, having just had my ankle rebuilt, that was a good thing. Solid Fiberglass construction, no balsa core, therefore no soft spots or wood rot in the deck and hull. 120 gallon water tanks. There is additional information on CSY on this forum. Just check out CSY 33. Since there were so few built, the problem is finding one in your area. The last time I checked, there were only 3 on the market, 2 in Florida and one in Canada. Just another two cents. Good Luck!

Sonny
