No, my friend, it was a sad day when I sold her. Luckily, my life with great boats continues.

Love wooden boats. This cutter is gorgeous. Though they do say that the two best days of owning a boat are the day you buy it, and the day you sell it. :)

Nice!

What I would give to have joined you on one of those trips.  I grew up spending summer weekends on my dad's Catalina 36 sloop.  Very modern and comfy, but I've had a taste of real ocean cruising and wooden boats (we recently acquired a Hoby Fast Cat, though her hull is fiberglass) and plan to make it out to the great blue as soon as I can.  Lake sailing is fun and easy, but sure does feel restricting after you've seen the real seas.

Thanks for posting this!  Not nearly enough sailboats/boating in general on the boards here.

She's 32' gaff rigged cutter, Burmese teak hull. No longer have her as I sailed her more than 6,000 miles and threw the anchor ashore for various landlocked jobs. Into OPB now ( other peoples' boats). Still have my first wooden boat, though.

Wow what a beauty!  How long have you had her/when was she made?  She's not an all-wood hull, is she?

Anyone know of any recent audiodidacts?

I'm not interested in conventional education for the time being because I have access to a wide variety of books and ebooks of advanced materials which I'd rather study in my own time. Some of which wouldn't have even been available to an average person (outside of maybe graduate school) just 20 years ago. Much more interested in mastering holistic, universal skills rather than simply learning through "rote" or learning impersonal "hard skills" which traditionally have not had much value…See More
