RE: Any Pilgrim 40 Owners out there

Our home port is Erie, PA, so we are Lake Erie boaters. *Square waves are the norm. *We have to go 40 miles east, west or north to get to the next port so we are fairly used to having to boat in less than ideal conditions. *SW to W winds have a 140 mile fetch, E winds a 100 mile fetch relative to our port. *The deepest point of Lake Erie is 210 feet, but the average depth of the lake is 62 feet deep.

We are looking forward to retirement in three years so we can go boating with out being on a schedule. *That should make cruising a bit more comfortable, especially since we plan on being live aboards and making the ICW and ports south our home during the winters.

RE: Any Pilgrim 40 Owners out there

Jealous of all you pilgram owners.* I like the look and pedigree of this design.

Often wondered about the way they handled rougher waters.* Now all this talk about 5' following seas and 8' waves, I have moved the Pilgram up my list for sure.

Not that I will be switching boats anytime soon, but if a more liveaboard situation becomes an option, the Pilgram40 is what I want.

Take care of your great boats, there are not too many of them around.

RE: Any Pilgrim 40 Owners out there

Great to see and hear from all you Pilgrim 40 folks but how about the Pilgrim 43.....any owners out there? The 43 PLAY (Pilgrim Live Aboard Yacht) was designed by Gozzard as a "big brother" to the 40 and built in Mexico by a separate company headed by one of Gozzard's partners, Gary Ferguson. As far as I can tell there were only about 7 ever built. I personally looked at 3 before buying Salty Dawg. The other two (Al Baraca and Bayhouse) I told have also been sold recently.

I'd like to try and identify all current owners of the 43's so we can share stories, history etc so if any out there or any of you know of an owner, please respond.

Salty Dawg
Currently lying Ft Lauderdale area

Hi Pilgrim owners - I'm looking at a Pilgrim 40 and a Grand Banks sedan 36 - I'd sure appreciate your comments preferring one over the other...

Rolling... The bane of all true desplacement hulls. I'm thinking about adding paravanes.

One big difference between the Pilgrim & the GB 36 is that the Pilgrim has a full displacement hull while the GB has a semi-displacement hull with hard chines. Although the Pilgrim is a larger boat it will burn less fuel getting there. Although the GB has a shorter waterline length it can go faster than the GB it you throw enough horsepower at it. The Pilgrim will roll more though it will be a slower more comfortable roll. The GB will have more initial stability. Both have plum bows so they can be a wet ride but it sure gives them a classic look.

I own the Shannon SRD 38 mentioned. For the record, problem mentioned was vibration after repair of prop damage in an encounter with post-Ike debris. Took several haulouts (but not six) to diagnose, but was cured after overhaul of anti-vibration drive. Boat is now on market.

Balsa Cored Deck Problems ?

Doing your repair of this Pilgrim vessel, did you run into any problems with water absorbtion in the balsa cored decks?

Where all the Pilgrims using balsa cored decks?

Did they use ANY coring in the hull bottoms or sides? (I thought I saw one reference to that)

I'm going to ask these same questions over on the Pilgrim forum that I just joined.

What did you decide? Pilgrim, Grand Banks, whatever?
What reasoning?

I saw this quote on a Pilgrim owners site:
Quote:
For us, the most interesting and informative part of Trawler Fest is their "trawler crawl." The event coordinators encourage trawler owners to bring their boats to the event and open them up to the attendees. Here we had the opportunity to speak first hand to owners of these boats; learn what they have done to customize their boats; their traveling experiences; and their assessment of the model boat they own.

After an wonderful, exhaustive, mind numbing time going through all of these boats, the very last boat we chanced upon was a Pilgrim tug named "Salty Dawg." As soon as we came on board, it was quite obvious that this Pilgrim was quickly capturing our imagination and, above all other boats at the event (new or used), this was the one we could see ourselves cruising in.

I used to sell boats, and the woman's point of view was always a 'head's up' !!

Welcome aboard Brian, good to see ya here. The first few posts with hyperlinks for new members get held for mod approval automatically. We had no choice but to activate that protocol due to the volume of spam. If we didn't this forum would be non usable.

It'll go away in a few more posts.

Trumpy-Mathis 'houseboat yachts'

Please don't take this as scariledge, but I can't help but think that the designer of the Pilgrim 40 canal-trawler certainly had in mind's eye these older Trumpy-Mathis designs when he created this design,....he was just restrained to a 40' foot length vessel.

I can only think that Ted Gozzard is a great Naval Architech. I just enjoy living it on the boat and I admire his comfortable design. All boat are beautiful in the eyes of the beholder at the same time Pilgrim 40 are quite unique in their kind. Regards, Normand
