    Re: Oughtred Grey Seal cutter?

    If you are worried about the amount of work in tacking the cutter headed rig (which won't amount to much in a boat that size) you could fit a boom on the staysail and make it self tacking.

    Re: Inexpensive cruising yachts under 32'

    I agree with Andrew, that Twister looks a good buy. These are excellent boats to sail. Many voyages to their credit. I see it already has a vane gear.

    How you could ever exchange the beautiful Mirelle for all that "Standard colour coding" is a mystery! Perhaps the vessel coming from the military has something to do with it,the colour system I mean.
