Your Boat

Thought it might be helpful if we just list the makes of our boats, should make it easier to find info on specific boats.

I have a Catalina 22
and a MacGregor 26 S (not the motor sailor)

I saw "Golightly" last week. It looks like a fine boat somewhat like a Valiant 40. How is that bottom job coming? Have you been washing it down as much as possible? It is very important to wash the bottom.

Good idea Pisces

I have a Fountaine Pajot Belize 43 (2001-mod.) Since it's a cat, I'll make a similar thread in the Multihull sailboats forum ...

The bottom job is coming along nicely, have kept the bottom clean. Irwinsailor I took some of your hull polishing advise on another thread, it has never looked so good. Thanks for the advice.

Van de Stadt

Have a 1975 45-foot Van de Stadt cutter. Hopefully I can post some pictures soon.

She's a great liveaboard and a fast and sturdy cruiser. She was built for the demanding sailing of the S. African coast and has many thousands of seamiles under her keel. Currently undergoing a refit while we liveaboard (gluttons for punishment).

Nice thread Pices.

Mine is a Wauquiez Hood 38. 38ft sloop designed by Ted Hood, built by Wauquiez in France. Fast, sleek and very comfortable. She may be my last and ultimate boat.

(btw, I also started out with a Catalina 25 and later a Catalina 30)

We have a tayana 42. Just got in January, we like it, the dog likes it, can't say the same about the cat.

I guess my statement about there not being any perfect boat except the one you want next does not apply to John and his wonderful boat. I hope to be there sometime but for now, I happily sail a C&C 29 MkII here on Lake Ontario.

I have a Farr 11.6 (Farr 38). These are hard boats to classify. They were designed as performance offshore cruisers but as a 10,500 lb 38 foot fractional rigged sloop, they do not fit the more traditional image of an offshore boat. Mine was single-handed in from South Africa. They are quite fast and I have been able to both cruise and race mine quite successfully. I partially chose this model for its ideal single-handing or short-handed sailing setup. I have added some pictures in the photo gallery.
