lay out, not much room for mechanical stuff. I'm a happy owner owner of T42 AC now and liked as much as I did my old CC.I think the only option for me now would be a geanker. To old to deal with the unruly sails
. Where is your Tayana?
There are a few people on the Tayana Owners Group that would disagree with you. Ta Yang yard built quite a few 40 to 42' boats (like Baba 40, Tayana 42, Tayana Vancouver
42) and if I recall
you could get a Perry designed 42' from Ta Yang. Lookd like a stretched out T37. The Ellis design of which they made 201 of are the Vancouver 42.
Bacon Sails has a few used gennakers and spinnakers listed for sale
. Their data base also has both Tayana 42 and Tayana Vancouver 42 (with different mast
heights). Furlers go a long way to tame big sails. I used a Doyle UPS on my old boat a lot as it was on a furler
. Bear to handle solo if it wasn't and much easier than a sock. I bought (but haven't used yet) a Facnor furler
that is capable of both top down and bottom up furling
My new to me, boy it needs work
V42CC is currently in Seabrook, Texas
. I'm in Maine
waiting for vaccine.
