Prout Snow Goose 37 vs Heavenly Twins 36

Hi,

can anyone say something about those two boats regarding sail performance and liveability.
Looking for a smaller older boat and so I came across those two.
Reagrding the prices both aren't far away and I found some info about both on the net.
But personal experiance is always better.
So, if you have please share you knowledge.

Re: Prout Snow Goose 37 vs Heavenly Twins 36

I am also looking at these two models. However I have found loads of information about the snowgoose, I am finding little about the twins 36, as everything seems to refer to the 26. Have you found out much? Whats your take on the single engine hydraulic system?

Re: Prout Snow Goose 37 vs Heavenly Twins 36

You won't find much info about the Twins range other than the smaller Heavenly Twins. Not many of the bigger boats sold. Many, many years ago I chartered a Star Twins (34 I think but maybe 32) for a long weekend from the Multihull Centre in Cornwall. At that time the son and daughter of Pat Patterson (Twins designer) were running the place but they seem to have left now. It was the first cat I ever sailed so had nothing but monos to compare with at the time but I was impressed compared to the similar sized monos I was used to.

The one thing I didn't like was the hydraulic drive. It was noisy when motoring and awkward when docking. The problem was that when using just one prop, the prop received twice the power that it did when both props were in use. So when shifting from both forward to one forward, one astern, you'd accelerate when one engine was in neutral. Looking back now, I'm sure the correct procedure would have been to move both to neutral at the same time and then engage one forward, one astern at the same time. Didn't think of it at the time as I think I only docked once or twice. Minor problem really. If I liked everything else about the boat then the hydraulic drive wouldn't have been enough to put me off the boat.
