no set time frame i plan to get the boat in florida or somewhere on the east coast and then sail it to florida and spend a year in florida sailing and outfitting the boat then head for the caribbean.
There is a Sailcraft commanche 32 "Elysium" which has been refit listed in Florida for 39K. They have a blog of their trip through the bahamas on sailblogs. The Comanche is a heavier cruising big brother of the Iroquois with fixed keels and a larger cabin.

The MKII and MKIIA had a lower mast as well as some other modifications to make them more stable.
I have an Iroquois MKII, the mast is only 32'.

Re: Small Catamarans

My point was more your claim of a 7 knot average speed which is extremely unlikely for any cat below mid 40 foot range. I cruised some with a Catana 43 and in 40,000 miles he had only a few 200 mile days. I assume he was sailing fairly conservatively, but 7 knots dragging the stern leg with the Genoa furled for days on end seemed way off to me.

Glad you made it safe.

It's 1500 miles in a straight line. But you can't sail in a straight line, on the charts there are yellow bits in the way.

Very cool boat, thanks for sharing!

It has been over a month since you were called on this falsehood. Even when Thinwater called you out on it, you doubled down on it. It took the owners of ZTC to finally get you to acquiesce that maybe you were wrong. But you still did not honor their request to edit your original post. As it stands, that false information is still there. A newbie doing a search on PDQ 32 would see this and get incorrect information. I for one, get really annoyed when someone posts something as fact when they really don't know what they are talking about. I suggest you check your facts before posting something so clearly wrong. We all expect more from someone with the title of "CF Advisor".

Actually Southern Star admitted he was wrong the day before ZTC posted on this thread. People make mistakes all the time, and anyone reading this thread would realize SS admitted to being incorrect. I believe it's to late to edit the post, only have 10-15 minutes to do that after making the original post?

Anyone seriously looking at that boat ould read the whole thread, so to me this is not an issue.
However Jerry could probably ask the Mods to add a comment to that post, indicating this "fact" was just a failing memory and crrected down below.

Re: Small Catamarans

Once I was advised that my recollection was faulty, I immediately acknowledged my error. I would be very happy if the mods deleted the post and those related thereto.

Re: Small Catamarans

Perhaps I was a bit harsh. I realize people make mistakes, sorry Southern Star. But my concern still stands that this incorrect information remains and will probably remain for decades. People use CF to evaluate specific boats. I've looked at 5-10 year old posts to get an idea of the past history of a particular boat. Surveyors and loan officers also look at CF. This particular post does not have the appearance of a vague recollection. There is a specific boat name and specific details that tend to strengthen its authenticity. People may not read the entire thread, and even if they do, doubt is created. I don't know how the editing process works, but as Rabbi said, perhaps the Mods could correct this?

You can edit a post for 30 minutes max. after you hit 'post'. Also, it wasn't posted as a fact, but as a "If I recall". Anyone interested enough in that boat to consider buying it would read more then just that comment.
So - let's all take a breath and not let yet another thread go down in flames.

-

Thanks to this thread I learned about the smaller (31/33') Prout cats - which I actually like (I am so NOT a multihull kinda gal, lol). Seems they're not really faster then a mono of about the same size, but would be a lot more comfy ... which is worth a lot when looking at a long ocean crossing on your own.

Re: Small Catamarans

Jerry, are you prepared to acknowledge the mistakes you made in your attack on me?

1. I did not post it as a fact, but rather as a recollection (which it was, albeit faulty).
2. I acknowledged my error prior to BTC's post. (post 74)
3. In acknowledging my error I did not merely say that 'maybe' I was wrong - I acknowledged that I was wrong and spoke glowingly about BTC (posts 74 and 76).

In spite of this, I am not asking that you 'modify' your post even though it stands as a personal attack on me. Lizzy has it right, this is nothing but a distraction from an otherwise useful thread.

Brad
