  1. Re: Back in the "saddle". This time a Maine Cat 30

    Congratulations Pat. The addiction doesn't go away does it? I've resisted so far but I think one day I'll get something old and small to keep near my house in Spain.

    Re: How important is fuel capacity?

    You've got enough fuel capacity to meet any realistic requirement. Most I ever motored was around 60 hours at the end of a Pacific crossing and that was just because I decided to get there. Could...

    Re: For Sale: 1996 Privilege 37 Catamaran

    Someone is going to get a great boat at a nice price. Although I owned a Privilege 435, I always had this nagging doubt that I'd bought more boat than I needed and the 37 would have been perfect for...

    Re: Rudder Bushing Replacement 1995 P-45

    Jeantot came before Alliaura. Capt Luke's boat is Jeantot era so that is likely why there is less info.

    Great explanation. I've never heard of International Boat Spares in France. Sounds as though they might be a useful source of information for owners of older boats.

    It's been around a while, previously known as the 515. Not sailed one but been aboard at a boat show. Very, very nice. It'll sail well. Not fast but comfortable. All Privileges are like that!
