Grampian 30

Saturday I took my beautiful little sloop “Vixen” sailing for the very first time. She is a heave, stable, comfortable vessel and is easy to handle under sail or power. She very nearly sails herself on a close or beam reach.

I love my boat!

I know it's a typo, Michael, but what did you mean to say instead of "heave" ?

Congrats on Vixen... Grampians are pretty bulletproof, so good on ya!

Now, on to LOTS of sailing and healing from your recent maelstrom...

Fair winds and good luck,

Re: Grampian 30

Like you I really enjoyed my Grampain 2-34. probably the only thing I didn't like (and this is a bit OCD) was how narrow the hull/deck flange connection was! barely wider than a 1/4 inch fender washer! Always seemed a bit skimpy to me but it never impacted the integrity of the boat!

Well, as a former Grampian 34 owner, I fully agree. Good solid boats. Nothing fancy about them, but great for sailing and cruising.

I will say, I always preferred the Gramp 30's side deck over my 34. At least with the 30 you've got some space. On the 34 ketch going forward the side decks were small, but going aft, you could barely get a toe on them.

Don't know why I wasn't able to work that out for myself...
