We have a Douglas 32, "Iguana". A Ted Brewer design. She is hull number 2 and built in 1971. We have almost completed a total refit on her.

Fair Winds,
Jim & Terry

I have owned a Bristol 35.5 for the last six years which has provided all that is needed to sail the Chesapeake Bay in comfort and relative speed. It's a Ted Hood design, so has draft of 3' 9" with the certerboard up, perfect for the Bay.

Will be doing more water sailing">blue water sailing in the near future, including the race to Bermuda next June, so am seriously considering moving up to the Bristol 38.8 for the extra space and additional comfort, although it retains the nice sailing qualities of the 35.5.

Talking

I have a 1978 Cal 34 that I bought last autumn.

I love it! I'm not very experienced yet, but I'm getting there. I enjoy working on it - at least some chores! I've added a new Quantum mainsail with Dutchman flaking and just got new interior cushions and new cockpit cushions. But the remaining list of repairs/upgrades is HUGE!

I plan taking her down the ICW and over to the Bahamas for the winter in either autumn '04 or '05.

Just out of curiousity, why did you decide that you needed a dutchman on that small a mainsail?

Respectfully,
Jeff

Dutchman Flaking

Because I often have non-sailors as "crew," so I need all the help I can get! I considered Lazy Jacks, but since I needed a new mainsail I figured I might as well go with the Dutchman.

PS - Jeff - you've never replied to my question to you about Cal 34s - why?

mine is a bostrom 37 build in 1980, she is a wide boat (beam 3.95) but very confortable and spacy with a big cookpit that is ideal for cruising in the hot summer we have in the eastern med.

I am not familiar with the Bostrom 37. Where was she built?

Gee, that is beamy!

We have a Ted Brewer Aloha 34. We are very happy with it but sometimes, with the lower water levels in the Great Lakes, I wish I had held out for the shoal draft version. This is also a consideration when sailing to the Bahamas in 2008. Pictures in Monohull gallery.

My boat is

I have a Pearson 365 ketch. Great boat for single guy and easy to sail along. It's nice to have company but I have found it difficult to find a lady who really can partake in the whole of the situation. And, I am not a hard guy to get along with.
Enjoying it all!

"Wine Celler" is a 33' Hunter shoal draft. She is a great lake sailor. Hopefully we'll find out how she does on the blue water next year.

We recently bought a Stevens 47' in Annapolis, where she awaits our return this spring to begin a one year cruise. Solid, well built center cockpit cruiser with good sailing performance, Sparkman and Stephens design. Three cabin layout nice for my family!

We bought Helios last September in Annapolis, just 21 days before the hurricane, and we love it.
She is a 1977 47' Olympic Adventure ketch that was built in Greece and designed by Ted Brewer. 33,000 lbs, 14.3 beam, 5'11'' draft, full keel.
She was a Great Lakes boat her whole life until we found her. The draft is a bit much for the bay, but we don't plan on staying here forever.
Cheers,

James
