Harre were you perhaps on the Bay this past Sunday afternoon?

On Sunday, I sailed the Cal down to the Magothy, and then sailed the Yankee up to Rock Creek on Monday.

Ah. I would have sworn I chased you in MiLady from Old Road Bay to the Tolchester Can and then back to Gibson Island. Sunday afternoon was a good sail. I would have repeated Monday but had no crew.

Thanks, Drew. She needs a new name, cushions, and some of this and that, but looks and feels good.

Let's see if I can post this pic of her in her new home:

Wonder if I could get your comments on the Y28 now that you've owned it a season. I really love the lines of the Yankee Dolphin 24 but it's a little small and came across the ad for Milady which is still on sailboatlistings.com. I can find very little information on the 28. I'm guessing they did not produce very many. From what i've read the construction quality was quite good. Thanks.

yep, I think the ads for MiLady will always be there...


I haven't really owned her for a season, though, as I took over in the Fall. I really like the boat a lot. I'm doing a bunch of things to it, to make it more habitable - it didn't even have any cushions below, and needs a bunch of this and that - but the hull, rig and engine seem to be in great shape, and the size and layout are just what I was looking for. I like having an older, more heavily-laid up hull, and I find she sails beautifully, is very responsive, and performs well in lighter air. She also can stand up to a blow, and sails nicely with jib only, in heavier air. I'm not sure how many of these were made, but not too many...this one's hull #9.

The name "MiLady" is gone, now, and the renaming is hopefully coming up in a few weeks.

I have one have had it for 6 or so years is a very stout boat sails well requires some maintenance but not bad for her age. Not many, 28'smade, not sure how different the 30 is.

Re: Yankee 28

Update on FURTHUR: after many months spent digging out the hull-to-deck joint and re-sealing it, fabricating new toerails, rebedding all the portlights and much of the deck hardware, she's dry and tight below, at last. It took a long time, due to Winter weather delays. The guy who "rebuilt" the decks clearly didn't know enough about what he was doing...ever hear this story before...?

Anyway, I still love the boat. Now for a transmission overhaul, replacing all the broken engine gauges, lead the main halyard aft, replace the off-size sail slides with the proper ones, new lower lifelines, go over all the boat's wiring, relocated the electrical panel below, add lighting below, a Windex and anchor light above and some other things - then I may get to still sail her yet, this season.

I've added a new bimini, resewed the dodger and sail cover, new cushions below, a speed/depth instrument, "stern-perch" seats and the hull was scraped, sanded and painted. I put a deck pipe just behind the furler, and led the rode below, with my seven-pound Fortress anchor riding on the bow pulpit.

Rudder repair

Thank you for your beautiful restoration I am quite envious of your bimini and the toe rail repair that I still have to do - at the moment I just have a very heavy silicone joint at that part of the boat.

Pic #1 Here she is at the end of "A dock"
Pic #2 the rest of the marina is still in a mess from the tsunami.

My issue is wanting to do some rudder repair but not have to pay the boat storage fees while I do the work. I wanted to take the rudder off in the water but it seems too problematic, listening to the efforts of the guy's with 30's.

Any info on Rudder repair experience stories would be appreciated.

Re: Yankee 28

well, I may have some rudder info for you soon...somehow, during the work on the hard, the rudder action became very stiff. the plan is to briefly haul the boat to pull the mast for inspection, etc., and we'll probably attempt to address the rudder issue then - stay tuned!

Re: Yankee 28

It looks as though I'm going to purchase a 28 foot 1978 Pacific Dolphin aka Yankee 28 very soon. She has a 11 hp. Yanmar diesel and appears to be in remarkable shape for her age. I'm going on a sea trial on the 4th of August. I know the diver who cleans the bottom and he said the hull is pristine.
I'm a bit concerned about the deck to hull joint that some of you have had to deal with. I'm wondering if a survey would reveal any potential future problems with the joint? Information on these boats is virtually non-existent. Thanks Harre for the information that you provided.
Any information or advice would be appreciated.

Regards,
Bob Shirley
Oceanside, Ca.
