Enjoy Lat 38 which is sent to me by email - obviously it caters in the main for the US West coast, naturally a little parochial.

Hey thanks for all the suggestions and comments. I agree, especially with Red. You get the feel for what suits over time and it's highly personal. We go sailing, we talk to sailors, absorb books, and accumulate stories we find a feel for what we like.

Just put up info on the Valiant 37 (After researching the boat, talking to owners, I was surprised about how overlooked this boat has become), and lots more info on the Cavalier 32 (one of the best to come from NZ).

Hello Danger,

Where did you find the owners to talk to?

Valiant Sailboat Owners Group (see Yahoo Groups, link at the bottom of the page). They were really helpful.

Seems to be the way these days. Technology is god and is not to be question. Even when it is programmed by mere mortals. I experience it every day at work. The new generation will not question the computer or the gps for that matter.

How did you stretch a 47 Hylas to 53'?

I think that is a great idea.

For smaller blue water capable boats there is this http://atomvoyages.com/articles/boatlist.htm
