Our first cruiser, a C-Dory 22, best decision we ever made.* Took us all over BC and SE Alaska.

RE: Former loves

Okay. Since people are putting in multiple pictures, I added a couple of more pictures, including my first sail boat, the red Luders 16, and a boat I did not own but my ex wife and I had the use of for a number of years, "Desperate Lark" a 1903 49' Herresoff Bar Harbor 31. Tried to buy her from her former owner but, considering the amount of money that the next owner had to put into her to restore her, am glad I didn't get her. But she was beauty to look at and sail.

Former loves

Here are mine, in the order that I owned them.

1) 48' OffShore Yacht Fisher

2) 42' Ocean Alexander Sedan (Our All Time Favorite)

3) 54' Mediterranean Sport Fisher

4) 35' Tiara Open

5) 30' Mainship Pilot

6) 31' Chaparral

7)* 32' Halvorsen Gourmet Cruiser

Notice that the last 4 boats were "down sized". They fit the "mission' better & the pocketbook.

RE: Former loves

This is an Albin I photographed at Myers Chuck. It's not ours but I have no digital photo's of her. Our Albin was powered by a 3 cyl "3HM35F" Yanmar. She could cruise at 9 knots and for the 1st year I cruised at 8.5 knots but later I settled on 7.35 knots. We took her to Alaska (Juneau and back to Everett WA) in 03 just weeks after we (Chris - now wife) and I met. 68 days en-route and we were lucky enough to have the driest and sunniest weather in SE for 50 years. Great trip and great boat. The Albin is the best designed and built small trawler in the world I'm sure.

Actually there were 8 but for the life of me I can't remember one!

Just remembered!* It was a 38 Mediterranean Sport fisher! I fished it a lot but don't have a single photo of it.

RE: Former loves

Just checked out a Prairie 29 on Yachtworld. Thanks Baker. That is the largest 29 footer I have seen. Well maybe the new Ranger Tug 29 might be bigger but it will set you back about a quarter mil to buy.

Former loves

The good ship, "Clare Marie", a Com-Pac 23/II.* I taught myself to sail on this boat.* Hey, how hard can it be?* Well, there were a few hairy moments but no injuries or damage resulted.

My 1966 Flying Scott.* A friend gave her to me.* She was suffering from years of neglect and I was well on my way to bringing her back to life when I got distracted by,"Moon Dance", the MT 34.* I'll get back to it eventually.
