Re: Blue Pearl Sinks



... and that's a Catalina, Mr. Redford!

"After 3 months of work the sailboat is now ready for Offshore adventures!"

Who can argue with a disembodied voice from Discovery channel?



Interesting to note the rudder stock construction.

Hull policy, and yes both had the same value. A 2003 H356 and an 87 IP38 cost essentially the same. Now in my opinion the IP is a better value.

The value of the boat now is a fraction of what was new so the replacement cost in case of loss is much smaller, no wonder you pay the same that in fact is more since the boat worth a lot less.

You are also right on the layup. I followed Townsend Bay Marine's build of Cielo Mare, a 127' custom sportfisher, several years ago, and there just ain't no easy way to get the layup done and done right.

BTW- your refit is really looking great-hope to see you on the Sound soon!

Of course! Not so many outfits do that.


We will definitely see ya out there soon! Thanks.


Still haven't seen anyone post any vid of these boat building robots they claim exist...

Re: Blue Pearl Sinks

How about this one for low cost, quality cutting, mass production?

https://www.youtube.com/watch?featur...&v=Xw4ttlU8gcQ

Just kidding of course. I wonder if these have ever had a bulkhead come loose at sea or a rudder fall off?

GBN, just how many rescues of foundering sailboats have you been directly involved in?

Edit: I can't believe I read this whole thread. I must be really bored. But, I don't lack for company in that regard, judging from the number of posts.

Have a look at Hanse, Lagoon and Hunter too:

That was interesting, Polux. And also scary.

Thanks

Re: Blue Pearl Sinks

Omg that's very serious and I hope no one was seriously hurt. I believe that every good boat needs a good and capable captains to assist Him. Good RYA courses are a must

Anytime they have full time Lead Varnishers I know I am in BIG trouble as an owner.

I couldn't afford a wine glass on a Morris

Neither can I.

Continuing with the thread drift with the tide;

I actually liked some of what I saw on the Hunter video. Outside chain plates for example and it looks like they have solid and plentiful keel bolts. What I find disturbing about Hunter is the seemingly poor quality of some of their dealers. Unless they have upgraded the quality of the dealership fit out and installation of add on systems in the past few years poor quality work will continue to bite them.

One thing I didn't much like was the use of 5200 on external fittings. Hull and deck joint yes, but not for other fittings, IMO.

Oh you noticed that too? I felt embarrassed as if I didn't know better.
