Re: Which multihull would YOU choose for mostly solo long distance cruising?

If it was me and just me (w/ the occasional stowaway), this would already be in my driveway. https://www.yachtworld.com/boats/2016/farrier-f-33-xr-3600633/

Re: What is the most affordable new cruising cat??

You mentioned kits, so I'll chime in. F boats, although not a cat, might be a reasonable interim option for you. However, to get one in the size you require, it's gonna cost (potentially as much as...

Re: Is buying a Starter Boat a dumb idea?

44GS Humm. Thoughts?

Hey kids,


I'm still a decade (10 yrs and 6 mos, actually) out and when I pull the trigger, it will be a decade-old 44 (if not older). That's the plan anyway. So, the new 44GS: Thoughts? ...

Re: Which % of saving would you spend for your cat

For what it's worth, there is a youtube family (6) cruising (I'm sure many of you have seen them). It seems they spend around $4k/mo +/- cruising (large family). Unfortunately, no personal...

Re: Bottom Cleaning

There was a host of pics posted up. One showed a healthy hole (we gots us some rock in Oregon). I understand it's being dragged off the beach with tractors. I can't imagine the sinking feeling the...

Re: Columbia River

Also, as you move up stream, some of the upper pools are warmer. Surface temps above the John Day dam are in the upper 70's come Aug/Sept, for example. Not always windy either (September: not me,...

Re: Motorhome Trade Towards PDQ Antares 44, or Other Cat

Re: Motorhome Trade Towards PDQ Antares 44, or Other Cat

I realized I do not have a pic of the coach with the sides deployed. Here is...

Motorhome Trade Towards PDQ Antares 44, or Other Cat

Checked with admin to make sure it was okay to post a Want to Trade RV ad for a cat and got the thumbs up. In very, very early stages of planning to move from land to a life as a vagabond on water. ...

Howdy from the Pacific Northwest

Howdy,
Recently passed a milestone at work and it got me thinking about retirement (in about 15 years or so). We often spend time in Baja and Mainland visiting friends and family during Winter...
