Monterey to Southern California

Begining planning for a trip this spring from Monterey to Santa Barbara.* From Santa Barbara on to San Diego and places in between.* I'm reading the Cruising guide to Central and Southern California by Fagan.* Made the trip years and years ago as a boy but not since then.

Thoughts & suggestions are all appreciated.* What else should I be reading? * I'm going to pull the charts off the boat this weekend and start to map it out.

35' PT Overseas Trawler curising at 9.5 kts.

Thanks,

*

Eric

RE: Monterey to Southern California

Look for the book, "Exploring the Pacific Coast", by Don Douglas & Reanne Hemingway-Douglas.* It covers the coast from San Diego to Seattle.* Not necessarily THE authoritative guide but another piece of the map.

Baggiolina. How did this trip down South work out for you? I may be looking at a PT 36 in Alameda, then I would need to get the boat back to my home town San Diego harbor.

Phatdad, we're leaving....weather and port exhaust pipe willing...May 8th. Buy the flipping thing and come with!

Planning a three day voyage, more than likely. Cambria the first day, Port San Luis the second and then do Pt Conception at dawn the third.

Send the yachtworld info on your boat so we can take a look.

I think Pineapple Girl is close buy as well. Not sure on the price though. We looked at an 1986 PT 38 last summer for 62k. Original owner as well and very clean. We are paying cash for a boat so I was not quite there at that time or I would have bought Her.

Very nice! You can tell she is a PT. 13kts cruise might not be real. I've got 6bts/twindisc 502s and she cruises at 10, I once got 15.5 with a following sea, some wind and everything empty WFO. Let me know when you close and I will drive up and take a look. I'm in San Jose so it is close. Jennifer is right across the bay. I think there was a youtube video on this boat. I'll take a look.

Hey E and PhatDad! We have seen 2nd story from the water while cruising up the estuary the other day. We will be in Oakland Saturday for the boat show so maybe we will go over to Alameda and see if the broker will let us take a look. The asking price is not much more than our boat was listed for. Everything is negotiable!

I no that boat will not cruise at 13kts and its not a planing hull. Its a displacement. She would probably plane at 35knts

This reminds me, our boat was listed as cruising at 16 knots. The broker told us he HIGHLY doubted that was true. When we were on the sea trial, the broker and owner were down below. the broker told us later that the owner had pointed at the VHF, which was tuned to 16, and said "see I told you it cruised at 16 knots." we cruise around 8 or 9 and like Eric managed to max out at 15 something one time in ideal conditions...

It would have blown his mind if you had moved up to 71

Hey PD, we did not get by the boat, or the boat show. We went to the delta and hung out on our boat instead.

Not a problem. Hope you had a great weekend. That boat has been for sale for quite sometime. If the price comes down into the 70s I would be more interested

You need to stay right there for a couple more days. 9ft 9sec following seas are doable in a recreational trawler but you will not have any fun. The beer is still cold right? On the plus side once you turn the corner the weather is beautiful.
