Re: Lake Erie to Saint Petersburgh, Russia

Looks like we are getting a 1976 Bayfield 32' for the trip. I am now researching the build nature of the Bayfield 32' the fixed rudder to a full keel and sides to the water line seem to be built very strong. The sides to the deck seem to be 3/16". Did Bayfield vary the build quality of the 32's? This boat is found all over the world. Built in Canada for lake sailing. The pounding you can take in Lake Erie matches anything. The highest wave recorded was 40' near Buffalo.

Thank you for a super group of experts.

Re: Lake Erie to Saint Petersburgh, Russia

We surveyed another Bayfield 32' and I think this is the one we will buy.
I wonder if all the hulls of the Bayfield 32's are the same. The hull from the water line to the bottom of the keel seems extra strong but the hull above the water line seems to be about 3/16" thick.
Thank you for a great group.

Re: Lake Erie to Saint Petersburgh, Russia

Hi There,

Did you end up buying the Bayfield 32 in St. Catherine's, Ontario?

By the way, I've been busy working on my Bayfield 32 Twiga. She's a wonderful boat and cannot wait for spring to get her in the water!

All the best,

Seb.

John Quincy Adams Route to Saint Petersburgh
It is not the prettiest route but in August it is at its best.

John Quincy Adams diary 23, 1 January 1795 - 12 May 1801, 5 August 1809 - 30 April 1836, page 218

John had a simple diary entry: one line often mentioning what he was reading.

Re: Lake Erie to Saint Petersburgh, Russia

Looking more likely we will by the 1976 Bayfield and since the hydraulic pump has been rebuilt and the engine goes through a rebuild we can take it across and back. We have four years to sort through the issues. The current stumbling block is getting permission to travel in Russian waters. The owner is a Russian history professor currently working with the Russian government to write history. Maybe this will lubricate the waters. None the less, if we make it to Helsinki it will be a success.

Re: Lake Erie to Saint Petersburgh, Russia

We got that boat, will be re-powering with a Beta 38 with the 7 down angle transmission if we can fit it in. Mounting a Cape Horn self steering wind vane. Wish I could mount a dingy on the back too. On track to leave Erie in the spring of 2019 getting to Saint Pete in August.
