It's not lost. You find it as soon as you heel the boat over.

Re: Boats Less Than $30K Recent Noteworthy Finds

My understanding is an artifact of CCA rules dictating design.

OK for light winds, not so great in heavy seas.

Really? Well if you are referring to hobby horsing, yes you should load it heavily centrally, but once heeled a CCA design has nice motion and a lot more waterline at play. Now dead downwind, yes there will probably be some rolling, and inclination to broach down in the troughs, (not necessarily just CCA boats) that comes with the CCA territory. But I like my own CCA boat in the heavier seas I’ve seen so far with her.
Too bad there’re not more chances for folks to sail a CCA boat in various conditions to see if it suits their tastes.

All that said, I don't think you can find a more beautiful boat then that era and back. The old folk boat inspired designs are so beautiful.

Yes just amazing going for less than an old Honda Civic. Gives me tremendous hope in selfish terms, but sad in other ways

I couldn't disagree more. Some really great cruisers came out of the CCA rules. Here's an interesting thread on the subject: Examples of cca era sailboats - SailNet Community

Re: Boats Less Than $30K Recent Noteworthy Finds

The Bayfield ad is interesting as it notes the 60 hours on a 14 year old diesel. Like that is a good thing.4 hours a year on average. I wonder if the oil got changed yearly.

Re: Boats Less Than $30K Recent Noteworthy Finds

Thanks to all helping me correct my misunderstandings about CCA. Since I have no interest in racing, I figure(d) boats not designed under any such rules were more likely to meet my non-speed-related needs.

Re: Boats Less Than $30K Recent Noteworthy Finds

Well I hope I don't offend anyone, but I think a boat that was designed without any intent to try to perform well, as in racing, will not be much fun or satisfying for cruisers either, eventually. I think the more one sails, the more one appreciates whatever the designer did to improve speed and pointing ability, even if they don't plan on racing. If you take an old boat, like the Rhodes 41 or a S&S Hughes 38 (at random,) you might be surprised and pleased at how nicely they sail and fast, and how strong, they are even if they are not as roomy as your newer neighbor's boat.

Re: Boats Less Than $30K Recent Noteworthy Finds

It should come as no surprise that many boats designed to take advantage of the handicapping rules developed by the Cruising Club of America turned out to be great cruisers. The CCA has always been an advocate of safe offshore cruising boats.

Re: Boats Less Than $30K Recent Noteworthy Finds

Take a look at this.

1977 Alden 44 Reduced to 30k

The good.

It's an Alden 44. Beautiful lines. Very useful below decks layout, and very nicely crafted by Tillotson-pearson.

The bad.

The teak decks failed, a while ago. 100% of the deck and core appears to need replacement. This has also caused water damage below. Cushions, headliner etc below all needs replacing.

But, it's an Alden 44.
