Some photos of an example with a lot of exterior teak. Nice, but impractical I'd say.

Hi Conrad: Hope you saw the additional photos & dry stack posting. Question: we have been thinking of repainting the hull dark blue, looks very smart, like your "Blue Sky" but am told it makes for a hot interior. Maybe this is more true for a sailboat, any comments?

Yes, we were lucky as the previous owner had replaced with coated aluminium portlights and hatches. I had guessed that Epivanes was the interior varnish and proven right when repairing condensation marks. What a great product, even quite large blemishes disappear with minimal effort.

Yes, I saw the additional photos - what a beauty! It looks like your interior is pretty much the same as the teaked out model except for the steering wheel. Hadn't thought about the keel cooler fouling, but it makes sense.

Hard to say about the dark hull. Blue Sky came with the dark blue hull so can't compare; on the BC west coast we haven't noticed the interior to be exceptionally hot. I know in southern climes it can be an issue, so perhaps someone can chime in. Your cruising area is the Great Lakes?

Greetings,
Mr./Ms. M. Can't comment on the heat index of a blue hull BUT every little "oopsie" shows up as a white blemish and any hull imperfections (gasp-perish the thought) show up as well.

OI started w an Albin 25 and we now have a Willard 30 as in my avatar. I had serious lust over a Maple Bay 27 some years ago.

I see you stow your dink (a rubber duckie .. like ours) on the cabin roof. How much does your dink weigh and how do you get it back up on top? We had a FG dinghy (about 90lbs) but wasn't practical to pull it up by hand. Then we bought a duckie that weighed a bit over 50lbs but that was too much too. Being 75 has some to do w it but the potential of slipping and falling off the roof is the big problem. The FG dink was narrower than the Duckie. The wide duckie gave only several inches of roof to stand on. Perhaps the 30lb weight of the new duckie without the heavy wood transom will be easy and safe enough to do. I plan on lifting it a bit sideways.

What's been your experience?


By the way one of the first things we will do this year is to spend a week in the south sound. We'll be looking for your boat.

Pack Mule they sure are and require much less power to drive than our Willard.

CAA I just noticed the for sale sign. Don't even think about it.
