Sailing. 26m vs 22.2

I like to sail. I've sailed my 222 fairly extensively. If I were to buy a 26m, I would only put a 10-15 up motor on it to try to keep the wieght off the back of the boat. I am fine with motoring at 7 knots instead of 20. I would be buying this boat for more room, since I spend extended times on boar...

Re: Is it worth it...?

I'd go on the condition of the structure of the boat. I'd take a filthy interior over a clean one that had stress cracks, impact damage or things like that. These are small boats. Soap and a few days of scrubbing can do wonders. The later boats don't use any structural wood inside or very little. Th...

I'm going to take mine off an...

Re: Double Anchor Roller for an S....

I found a cheaper easier solution that will work nearly as well if a bit less elegant. On my larger boat I placed a lenth of stout ss pipe across the deck a few feet back from the stem head and attached it so a foot or so hung off either side. The anchors come right up and stow easily there. For sma...

Re: 1972 Venture 2-22 Reburbish

Awwwwwww what a sweetheart. This is the exact boat and color scheme I bought 12 years ago for 1600 bucks. Mine was in fine shape but I beefed up the rigging and did some changing of the inside before taking it to the Bahamas and having the time of my life there. Since then I have done quite a bit of...
