Good morning CF! Lurked and read here for years but recently had more questions than the search function could handle.
Love this site and SA as well, nice people and more information and ideas than I can handle most days.
I have surfed and sailed since my 4th birthday in 1965...
Currently own a 1971 32 Samson
, owner finished Cutter
, just finishing up repairs
. She was going to be parted out and scrapped (why I bought her) but after inspection
, she was deemed much too sea worthy to be given up on. She is set up for single
handed now (I know, a Cutter
handed?) and needs just some finishing touches.
Previous S/V was a 36' Samson
as well but sloop
I am a big fan of ferro
I live on the Coast of Oregon
, surf daily when weather
permits and I am on the lake in my 15.5 S/V at least once a week. That little boat
was a one off by Mastercraft, planing hull
with a tall rig at 22'. Fast and scary at times, it keeps me sharp (and wet).
My Suhail Cutter will be my last S/V, plans in the works are to use her for tuna fishing
the next three years and then off to Mexico/Hawaii and back to Oregon
after that. She gets more love, money
and attention than the wife and I get just as much aggravation for the same effort.
Thanks for reading.
