  1. I overpaid for a Cutter rigged 1968 38ft Hughes. I am still very determined to convert from a gasoline atomic 4 to electric propulsion.

    However, I recently spent 4 months in the hospital and came out severely handicapped. So now I am thinking I will need to either build some kind of a sugar scoop or build some kind of a folding swim grid around my Cape Horn windvane.

    Will also need some kind of a hard dodger that will cover 2.5 to 3 feet of the cockpit. Rigid lifelines are now a must. And add wheel steering with 1 of those units that swing side to side

    My NEEDS have significantly changed, but I think I can still do it.

  2. Tim,

    We are on our 12th season with our 1989 Hunter Legend 37. A great boat for Georgian Bay with 4’10” draft. After replacing all running rigging, canvas, sails, cushions in Solon and cockpit, refrigeration, davits, rudder from Foss foam, all electronics we have put as much in as we paid for her.

    I hope new boat buyers know that 5-10% annual upgrades are typical.

    That said it is a great boat for a couple or family on the bay.

  3. You will never get the perfect boat unless you build it from scratch to your specifications. Even then, its only as good as what you want to do with it. My only problem is the prices of these used boats/yachts are vastly artificially inflated to what their real value is. But Tim has really good points to take note.

  4. I like all the information. I live in an area where many sailboats are near free. Some dealers won't even list them because so many are available. With mooring costs of $1000-1500 a month I plan to do a trailerable boat 1st to learn on and make sure my wife likes it. Any recommendations on a good trailerable boat for tye PNW?

  5. Why do you never talk about capsize ratio or comfort ratio?
    Some of these modern hulls will throw you around like a raggdoll in rough seas..

  6. I want a alloy cat, 7 cabins, three heads, fly deck, galley down and brand new. Swap for a second hand VW Golf GTi Mk7 with a fruity aftermarket turbo.

  7. What about a Jeanneau sun odyssey 43DS they're around USD 135000, or for 20000 less you can buy a Hunter 42 passage. Both have onboard all a couple needs…
    I hope to replace my Eygthene 24 for one of those two someday…🤤

  8. What's your thoughts on the southerly 135 rs, possibly with the twin rudder and tall rig???? Fits the criteria and happy to cross oceans in comfort and have a tiny draught in the Bahamas or Chesapeake???

  9. Very interesting and thought-provoking, thank you. I am in the process of selling up my land assets and looking for a sail boat to live on forever. My concentration has been on small size and simplicity to be easy to handle and with lower ongoing maintenance and occasional marina costs. Also, perish the thought, buying new to obtain that simplicity that I cannot find on the used market, get the warranties and be assured of many years with little maintenance or replacement required. I would prefer an electric inboard but the CE certification system has not caught up with current technologies yet. Hence my two targets are the Beneteau Oceanis 30.1 and the Scandinavia 35 – both built in Poland. With my preferred spec there is little difference in price. The Scandinavia 35 would lend itself more to the occasional skippered charter perhaps and have a little more space. The Beneteau would be easier to sell, if ever I had to. Thoughts?

  10. After watching a few of your recent videos now, it might be an idea (especially on the internet) to understand not everyone lives in the US (or East Coast) and not everyone cares about the hellhole that is Florida or going to the Bahamas (or at least make an introductory statement somewhere that your videos are primarily based on those two factors). Otherwise, great stuff.

  11. Nice choices. Personally I would have suggested the subsequent generation of Hunter (35.5/37.5 & 40.5) as they were a significant evolution (iron keel replaced with lead, proper walk through sugar-scoop) and were the pinnacle of the hunter racer/cruiser design with a proper backstay. Beyond those they became more associated with bloated floating condos. One of the reasons we went with a h40.5 (4.9' draft, 20,000lbs, etc).

    Fyi, in '91 11 Hunter 35.5 sailed from NYC to Bermuda with each boat only double-handed, raced in what was the Omega Gold Series during hurricane Grace passing through (that became later known as 'the perfect storm'). Were skippered by some of the 'legends' of the day including Paul Cayard, Chris Dixon, Magnus Holberg, Marc Boet, Peter Isler and others in 60kn gusting weather flying spinnakers, full main sails, etc.. Then after the event they double-handed back to the US from Bermuda. They are very underappreciated and undervalued sailboats… Video from one of the finals in the race below:


  12. Great video, our very first boat was a 1984 Hunter 34 , we purchased her in 1987 from a older couple who went up to a 42 Irwin in the almost 10 years we had her we put thousands of dollars in Improvements too much to mention now, many years later if I had to purchase a boat I would purchase a 48 T Hans Christian and fit her out with electric, water and all the things you would want . I guess this is what I have learned and being now 74 years old , hahahaha thanks for all your great information and videos, your the best !

  13. I would like to see you do a series on new boats. And pros and cons of new vs old. We all know all boats need maintenance, but is it worth while to go new and not have to pay for a lot of modifications?

  14. I suppose my pristine Mason 43 doesn't check any of these boxes, but she damn well is 10x prettier than any of the above mentioned boats

  15. You just hit all my “must haves” one conflict I’m having is I really need that sugar scoop becoming longer in the tooth lately. But one of my must haves is also a wind vane. I’m not seeing those on anything with a scoop. Also, would you hesitate to sail the Hunter 37 across the Atlantic to the Azores?
    Thank you for the continuing education

  16. Had a consult with Tim this past week. I’ve been doing research for quite a while and felt pretty confident going into the conversation, but was still able to come away from the consult having learned a bunch and now have a better idea of what I’m looking for. I highly recommend anyone considering a purchase to consult with Tim because his knowledge of every different boat is thorough and practical for someone like me who hasn’t quite experienced the reality of cruising-size boat ownership. Thanks again Tim and looking forward to learning more.

  17. Hi Tim, great stuff as always! Two questions for you: where do you land on the importance of a keel stepped versus a deck stepped mast given your needs and preferences? I don't think I've ever heard you mention the Catalina 47. Is that because it's more size than you need, or is there something else about it that turns you off?

  18. Did you ever think about doing the same kind of videos for trawlers or does anybody know of someone who does this kind of reviews for trawlers?

  19. Hi Tim. I 100% agree on Sloop Rig, Ketch Rig Wrecks that nice comfy aft Cockpit though, plus that aft Cockpit Arch for enough Solar Panels plus Dinghy Davits. I'm not wild about Cutter Rig either, as like a Ketch, with Sailcloth Aft, or working Sailcloth at the Bow, I found the leverage at extremes on both sides of the Mast gives a SeeSaw motion that breaks heading to, so I've become a huge fan of in Mast Furling with a heavy Duty Battenless Triradial Main, with my next Furling Main, being designed with hallenge 9.11 sailcloth, and I'm going to try to get 3.5 Reefs, with the 0.5 reef split into two reefing Points, so if conditions get really bad, with three Reefs Furled in, then worsen, the 0.25 reef gets furled leaving 0.25 out and all of the Cloth in the Mast, is sharing the wind load. The important point though is all wind forces are kept at the nominal entre of the boat and very close to the Mast, and no SeeSaw Leverage. if necessary to make gentle progress, and get power into the batteries, .I can then fire up the nicely oversized inboard diesel and low rpm my way out of trouble with a good propulsion prop like a Flexofold. Yes the extra 0.5 double reef is a Theoretical advantage, and will up the price of the Sail a bit, but should work, and be inva,unable in practice. Not sure if I've mentioned it before, but a Furling Triradial Main without Battens, recovers most of the Power lost compared to one with Battens (confirmed by a Sailmaker that makes them ). In Return you get far better Furling Reliability, elimination of most chafing wear and tear, and with regular va,sting, a massively exte ded service life for the Sail, along with great Shape retention. All Headsails on Furlers, to be able to furl them out of the way, plus a Furling Triradial self tacking Jib with three reef points. extra Sails, I need to check with the Boatbuilder and Sailmaker as am tempted to try a .Polyester Cduising Laminate (no Sail exploding Mylar) Reaching Code Zero to fill in the Wind Abgles, a Furling 170% Reacher, and Furling Gennaker . All ,ines led back to the Cockpit (but I am tempted to try the Seldene electric Sail Handling system, which kike that Code Zero, I'm addicted to testing stuff, and it does have manual ackup. But push button Sail Handling in the Cockpit? What's not to like . Bob. 👍✨️✨️✨️

  20. Must admit I was really looking forward to Part two of this Tim, and you didn't disappoint. 👍 Good choices of boats and I'd add if you are looking for that aft Cabin, another that fits the Bill is the Mis named Jeanneau Sun Odyssey Deck Saloon, which doesn't have that Sweat Shop Sauna in the Tropics Glasshouse slapped onto a Monohull. Great Aft Cockpit too. Personally I'd avoid the ones with Yanmar Saildrives, unless you get a bigger one with an 80hp plus Yanmar, the size at which you can get the ZF Saildrive, which is about as good as the Volvo Saildrive, but a lot of them do have Traditional Shaft drives. You can also get a Sane Shallow Draft with them as well. If the forecast massive financial Crash happens, you may be able to puck one up for peanuts, as a lot of Boat Owners are not going to be ab,e to afford to keep their boats.

  21. Love your channel!!
    What would you suggest as necessities for solo sailing?
    Are furling masts or furling booms worth it?

  22. Ever heard of the 1960's Spencer 42 built in Vancouver Canada? A friend's family brought one down to Seattle incomplete to finish here, to take advantage of a $15,000 tax exemption. They sailed the Pacific and the Med and to Alaska for several decades. It was heavy with 1" fiberglass and a hard dodger.

  23. I couldn’t agree with you more on the sugar scoop. Getting on and off the boat in rough water is vital. We have watched so many couples struggle and some even fall in. What’s nice is if you look at the boats for sale in the 2000 -2007 age range they have become more and more affordable and have a lot of these features. I would also suggest a good gennaker or code zero for down wind sailing. The extra knots of speed is just amazing.

  24. Hi Tim. I've been enjoying your content for a long while now. I think your a keeper😂
    Anyhow, my search today is for a video on how to assess your sails. I've only seen one by Sailrite. Plenty on how to measure but not enough "What to look for in sails to tell age, are they salvageable with a recut ? Are they scrap? "
    I think this could be really good content if you would consider it.
    Thanks for your efforts!

  25. For those who are interested,
    The super-cheap washing-"machine" is pulling a rotating drum with content, when one is sailing.
    If you put a serious amount of insulation around the drum, you will get positive buoyancy, and of course the possibility of using hotter water than the temperature of the surrounding sea.

  26. I want to spend my holidays in the European waterways. I will start in Holland.

    I'm eyeing a *sail*boat who fits into a shipping container, so I
    1) Can store the boat cheaply at a Container Yard (CY). CYs are guarded.
    2) Can get the boat to wherever I want to sail in a season. The averange cost of shipping a 40 ft FCL(=Full Container Load) is $1,809 – which is cheap, I think.
    RTM Rotterdam to USMIA Miami, FL will take about 28 days.

  27. I would like to know more info on the Hans Christian 4750 Explorer and her sister The Halmark 4850. If you have any information about this vessels I would like to see a video about them. Thank you in advance for your time and consideration in this matter.

  28. Sorry Tim, but I have to disagree with your boat choices but I do agree with you on features. I would consider a wing keel, sheel keel, or long keel (with the Brewer bite). I also agree with you on the rigging configuration. Solar can also be augmented with a wind generator or watt n' sea hydro generator.

    As to your suggested boats:
    Hunter Legend 37: Fin Keel, spade Rudder, Capsize Ratio (CR) 2.09, and total displacement of 14,000# with 6.7' draft.
    Catalina MKII 42: This boat is a possible maybe, but still: Fin keel, spade rudder, 6.7' draft, and a CR of 2.03. The Bal/Disp ratio is 40.5. She is a high performing coastal cruiser.
    Beneteau Oceanis 45 has a capsize ratio of 2.14 and a spade rudder. Also a SAD of 22.7 which means, to me, that she is going to be a handful to sail.

    IMHO, none of these boats qualify as being suitable for offshore. I would much prefer: cutter rig, skeg hung rudder, SAD of 20 or less, CR under 2.0, Bal/Disp of under 40, a 6' max draft and a comfort ratio of 25 or more. The Catalina 42 MK II , IMHO is about the best of the above bunch for venturing offshore. Again, IMHO she is also the best made of the three.

  29. You keep your steel ship away from my fiberglass old full keel sailboat in a big storm. The only way a hole can be punched into my boat, is from your steel ship. I don't need your help my old sailboat can survive any storm at sea.

  30. For a beginning cruising, I think you stay under 100k. For 67k for a Hunter 37, you could update this boat for a total cost of under 100k. I just don't see the value in a 45-foot boat with an acquisition cost of 350k.

  31. I am a fan of the Tartan 4100. 19k lbs., rear queen bed, and 5.3 ft. beaver tail shoal draft. Good reputation for quality, and about $200k. Good rig. Don't get the sail drive version! lol
