Re: Brent Swain 36 for sale

Beautiful boat. Congrats on the circumnav - wonder why you're selling. New boat or landlubbering for awhile? Recent ultrasound?

Re: Brent Swain 36 for sale

Yes landlubbering now. We are not life long sailors. My retirement goal was to sail around the world. (see www.tagish.blogspt.com) I wanted a strong boat to do it in, its done, was fantastic. But now on to other things we like to do and I don't want to pay for boat moorage.
No ultrasound, but I think it would be good as no rust inside or outside of hull, and bilge is stainless steel pot where any water would collect form spills or stuffing box. Everthing welded on, stanchions etc, as they should be on a steel boat, so only holes in boat are the windows.

Re: Brent Swain 36 for sale

hello,
Could you post a few more pictures? Maybe the cockpit?
How does it sail? single handed? into the wind? speed? light wind?
Beautiful boat,
thanks

Tagish's master has put some great info on his site, but the link in the message is incorrect. It's Tagish - Sailing around the World

There is a great maritime travelogue on that site which describes the various weather situations that they got into, how the boat responded, and what they did to carry on. I wish other boat sellers had such great sites giving detail about boats under consideration and their voyages/passages. Additionally, the stories on his site make for good reading.

At one point he describes a gale situation and using a tire drogue (interesting) - and how he followed it with a commercially made drogue to good effect when the weather worsened. I liked his description of the Panama Canal trip too...

Re: Brent Swain 36 for sale

The boat sails as good or better than some heavy traditional design fiberglass sailboats in light winds, it is not as heavy as some of them. Usually need 6 to 8 knots to start moving. The Brent Swain style of wind vane on boat works if there is enough wind to move boat. For a strong cruising boat it does fairly well to windward. And single handed? I sail the boat single handed when it is my watch at night.

For more pictures, I have boat listed now with a local broker at Wills Marine Boat brokers. I don't think I am allowed to but the link here. If you google it you will get to him. He put lots of pictures in the ad.
