congrats a very nice boat. It's amazing how long propane lasts if you are only cooking with it. Have you considered the little aluminum bottle? I think they are 5 # bottles or something like that...

Wauquiez 38 MK1 - Propane

Have cruised offshore before with 2 X 10lb propane bottles and that lasts us about 6 - 8 weeks. I want the ability to cruise for 4 months without replenishing and the propane locker is simply not large enough to accomodate

hmmm... seems like my 10# lasted 5 weeks in the dead of winter in seattle. In the carribean I used the bbq a lot and the oven once in a blue moon. I did have one for the BBQ and One for the stove though.

Just a little more after the thanks I sent - would love to connect directly so if you want to I can be contacted thru 'tcgibb@islandnet.com' - look forward to hearing from you - thanks. One question that comes to mind immediately is about the kind of self steering device have you heard works best on board a Mark 1?

Wauquiez Hood 38 just purchased in Annapolis

Salut David,
I just bought a Wauquiez Hood 38 (hopefully closing mid May...). I am really excited, fell in love with the boat, lots of upgrades and updates. Can't wait to get used to her, and start heading South. Dream is to start sailing to the Carrabean, then sail to Med.
By the way, I am a Frenchman too...

I note that a couple of you have just bought, or are buying, Hoods. I'm going to look at one on Saturday (Mark 1) at Langkawi, Malaysia. Curious to know how you are liking your new boats, and approximately what you paid for them - the Langkawi boat seems expensive relative to others, including MkIIs, on the market. You could PM me directly if preferred.

Tks. S.

Congratulations on your purchase of Blue Charm. I have sailed with her, when I was on the Ches and got to see the boat at a Wauq rendervous on the Ches. Beautiful and nicely upgraded. She will keep you safe and secure, and very comfy.

7 yrs of ownership and still loving Invictus. 3 yrs of living aboard full time and cruising. Loving it and very comfy.

The vee berth is very comfortable. I had a custom foam mattress made when I bought the boat. Laminates of different densities and thicknesses. Wonderful luxury. I recently added a memory foam topper.....wow. Life is good...enjoy.

Best
John

New Wauquiez Hood Owner

I flew to Malaysia this past weekend on what was intended to be a recon mission for a process that was going to spread out over months. I came home with a signed contract on an '82 Hood Mark 1 that has been meticulously reconditioned by a pair of cruising couples in Langkawi. For those of you using facebook, you can see a few pix at this web site:

Login | Facebook

Mayero was the 7th boat in two days (there was a gorgeous Nicholson 39 that was the front-runner when we dinghied out to the Wauq), and the fifth and final one on Saturday. I was so smitten with the boat that I almost made the owner an offer on the spot. Instead I waited ten minutes til' we were on land and I sketched out an offer - the broker was not too optimistic, but 45 minutes later, while I was watching the sun set over Rebak, I had the astonishing news that we were on. We had a great sea trial on Sunday with the owner, his wife, the broker, and my girlfriend and I. The wind was modest but sufficient, the boat was like a delicate aquatic train. So now we do the paperwork dance, and I try to stay focused on work...

Despite the fact that the only vessel I've sailed in the last 18 years was, of all things, about 5 hours at the wheel of the Weatherly, 1962 winner of the America's Cup, the Wauquiez felt extremely comfortable and confidence-inspiring. I can't wait to begin this adventure...

If any of you have specific links to suggest on this boat, I'll be appreciative. (Yup, I've discovered google already...).

Grinning ear to ear,

S.

Congratulations!

She will take you anywhere you want to go in comfort, safety and style. The more you sail, liveaboard and upgrade her, the more you will love and appreciate her quality and design.

Best
John

Is there a place on the web where I can find the identifying "logo" that goes on the sails for a Wauquiez? Once upon a time I had a hard copy of a chart that showed those symbols for all boat builders, but...well, that was once upon a time in a hard copy world...

Wauquiez Logo

Here's the Logo:
http://www.westerlyacht.com/yachts/wauquiez/logo.jpg
http://www.wauquiez.com/images/logo-wauquiez.gif

Problem is that this is the full name, not a symbol.
I have yet to see a photo/sail with a symbol on it
