What happened to Sail Calculator 3.53

I had been using this a but to help me search for a boat but as of last Friday all I get from Account Suspended is something about an acct being suspended. Does anyone know of another place I can go that has all that lovely info on boats?

Thanks

I'm not familiar with the "Sail Calculator" site. I do know that sailboatdata.com is a good resource for researching boat specs.

If anyone is particularly interested I can probably organise an external rehosting of the data. Let me know.

We are shopping for a boat now, and I knew about the sailboat data Capt. Force mentioned, but hadn't heard of this Sail Calculator site.

Thanks for the find!

Please do, it makes it so easy to look at boats for sale and get the breakdown on them as well as how well they might do on ocean passages. Sailboatdata.com does not have the capsize ratio or comfort factor in their breakdown whch makes it hard to compare say a Bristol 40 vs Mariner 40 vs Allied Princess.

This is the best place I found to compare boats and find one suiting my choices. All I could find was version 2.72 which has a lot less boats. I figured everyone here would know where to go to get this back.

Yes, YES: Someone please host it.

I didn't realize it was gone, but over the course of looking at boats, i have frequently used it. It is a very handy way to compare the factors that help understand one design versus another. I don't think there is any other alternative that that calculator that is set up on the web.

Re: What happened to Sail Calculator 3.53

I use it every time I look at boats. I loved the search feature for finding boat with say LOA>39, Capsize<1.7 and comfort>38. I use Sailboatdata for things like tankage and ballast%.

Re: What happened to Sail Calculator 3.53

Thank you so much. I use the site every time I go to yachtworld to see if the boat is one I may want. Not having it makes the screening process time consuming. I would have thought people here would havenoticed the instant it went down but maybe I am just a newbie and don't know the boats like you all do.

Thanks again Mark!

Thank you Mark. I used it all of last year while searching for my first boat. A tool I appreciated a lot.

That is exactly what I am doing this year Those books on 20 Affordable Boats to Take You Anywhere were a good start, but being able to drill down and search for specifics is even better.
