How far and in what ways

How far and in what ways

With a production run of only 57 boats, it's not surprising that many people aren't familiar with CSY's smallest sailboat. Her swoopy sheerline and sharp bow beckon me. And just in case you thought all those new fancy deck saloon DS designs from the likes of Jeanneau were new and novel ideas, just remember that CSY built this little 33 footer way back in But I think he did his finest work with the Shannon 28, just the second model ever offered from Shannon.

She's the smallest boat on my list, but was just too seaworthy and beautiful to leave off the list. I love the reverse transom and transom-hung rudder. And have you seen Shannon's craftsmenship?

Just in case you think 28 feet is too few to offer any choice in cabin layout, Shannon gave you three options with names that speak of this boat's purpose: How far into this list did you think you'd get without running into a Bob Perry designed boat?

This one is like a mini-Valiant 40, which is one of the most well-known and proven offshore boats and a member of the American Sailboat Hall of Fame. Just like the 40, Perry designed the 32 to have classic looks you'd expect from a 's era world cruiser canoe stern, etc.

She's got a long modified keel approaching the look of a fin keel with a skeg hung rudder. There's just something about a clipper bow and a ketch rig that magically transports my mind to the South Pacific.

And if you're going to make the long sail to the South Pacific, you might as well be coddled in a gorgeously warm and wood filled cabin like that of the Fuji At first glance and without knowing the length, it might be easy to confuse the Alajuela 38 with the Westsail But I assure you, she's a different animal.

She's really a closer cousin to the Ingrid 38, which I would have included if it weren't so similar. Have you ever seen a longer keel than that on the Alajuela 38? I bet she tracks like a freight train. And how about that massive rudder?

This boat is the very definition of a "stout cruiser".To clean the bottom of an iron, mix baking soda and water and spread the paste over the bottom of the iron. Then, wipe off the paste with a damp cloth and clean out the steam vents with a cotton swab.

If you don't have baking soda on hand, heat equal parts white vinegar and salt on the stove until the salt dissolves. Then, scrub the bottom of the iron with the mixture until it's clean.

Pro: Police are going too far.

Tayana The Tayana 37 is the second Perry-designed boat to make my list, and deservedly so as many far-flung anchorages around the globe have hosted a TThis boat is in many ways Bob's answer to the Westsail 32 phenonom of the 's.

While Bob Perry himself thought the ketch option added speed and balance, I like the look of the more common Tayana 37 cutter.
