Mine is a Van de Stadt designed and French built 1979 42 ft steel ketch. Original name “Brocelainde” The magic forest in Authurian legend,where Morgen de Fey lured Merlin and encaptured him. She certainly enchanted me. Well! what red blooded man won’t be seduce by a beautiful 28 year old french lady.

Regards

Alan

We have a 1985 Scanmar 35. Its a fractional rig, quasi-center cockpit, if there is such a thing. Built in Sweden, it spent its first 20 years on Lake Michigan and is now on Lake Sakakawea, so its been fresh water its whole life.

Sorry for the off-theme, but what is sailing like there -- I was raised in NoDak before Lake Sakakawea, and have thought about retiring there (again), except that there seemed few places to sail...

Someone, please let me know if I should be responding in a different forum.

Larry, My direct experience is limited, but, for an inland lake, I think Sakakawea is a wonderful place to sail. When full, it is about 175 miles long, six miles wide at the widest, with lots of little bays, especially in the Badlands part of the lake. Currently, about half the lake is readily sailable, with depths of 80-150 feet. North Dakota has been called "the Saudi Arabia of wind energy", so wind is rarely a problem. Our season is short, however, about May through October. I'd be glad to give you more info directly, if there is a way you can get me contact info. Duane

"Obsession"

"Obsession" (P.O's name) is our Beneteau 352. The name may be changed if we can think of a better one. We sail out of Rock Hall, MD mostly in the northern Chesapeake for our first season. Next season will see us going out longer and farther. The possibility of retirement in about three to five years will see us going to other states, perhaps Florida for winter, Maine for summer?

Own or have owned:

Moorings (Beneteau) 33 (In charter)

Westerly Centaur 26

Telstar Trimaran 26

Vagabond 17

Brief summary: I like the Moorings program and most boat features. I thought the Centaur was a great deal on a pocket cruiser that afforded me many cruises of the Bahamas and Great Lakes. I was disappointed with Telstar as a cruiser and sold it after two trips. The Vagabond, has been cheap, fun and easy to sail and rig.

My wife and I have a Downeaster 41. It's a pilothouse sloop rigged blue water cruiser. (it actually measures 41'9" on a 38' deck.)
We are currently in the San francisco area readying for extended cruising.

I have two. Favona. a 32'6" British ocean racer. Winner of the 1953 Fastnet and a, as yet unnamed, 23' Westerly Pageant. I bought Favona to take on the world and got the Westerly to potter about the Bay in.

Our Boat

We have an 9.2C S2 sailing yacht made by Tiara when they made sailboats in the early 80's. Most room I've ever seen on a 30ft boat and you can't beat the aft cabin! s/v Dharma
