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.
