Now I've done it

We just put a down on a Uniflite 37 Coastal Cruiser. Twin Lehmans. finally came to the dark side after 40 years of sailing.

Welcome Harold and Jessie to TF. Coming over to the dark side is what "intelligent sailors" do.


Just think how nice it's going to be next winter when you're headed out of the Ballard Locks and you get past Shilshole Bay and you realize that you're WARM because you're on your trawler, not on your sailboat.


Ain't the dark side going to be confortable!

Welcome! Have to agree with GFC as I was in a T Shirt last weekend headed to Bainbridge. Winter cruising is amazing.

I really like the layout of that boat. Does it have the Uniflite blistering problem?

Congratulations. I hope the purchase goes smoothly. I moved from sailing almost two years ago. You will survive.

They say no, it was built after they quit using the brand of fire retardant that was the cause. She will be surveyed on the 2nd of Feb.

That is good news. Uniflite built a lot of boats for the Vietnam war and they were speced with the fire retardant resins. The Navy didn’t care if they blistered, but recreational boaters do. I looked at a 42’ that was a beautiful boat except that it had blisters from the waterline up into the flybridge. I wouldn’t have been able to look at it every day even though the blisters weren’t structural. Good luck with your new boat!

You got a good one with the FL 120's. We had a friend in the PNW who had one with twin gas Crusaders. He loved it but always wanted diesels. He cruised at 9 knots comfortably. He didn't have any blister issues.

As fellow sailors who have gone to the dark side, welcome aboard! We still have a Catalina 25 to keep from going total Darth Vader...
