Can we just clarify that please? To me, a 'long keel' has a rudder hung on the trailing edge of the keel. A skeg hung rudder is mounted on a skeg (aft of a fin keel). Are you looking for a long keel by my definition, or is a (long) fin and skeg in the running?Long keel and a skeg hung rudder are a must.
See my post, all encapsulated keels, deep forefoot, long fin and keg, more 3/4" keel than long keel per se.Skeg and long keel aside, which sub 37 ft boat would you cross the North Atlantic in?
Give him some non long keel options.
You do seem to get alot more boat for your money by going down this route.
Sorry, but I disagree strongly, there are loads of boats out there that'll fill the OP's remit and including suitable upgrades/re-fitting will remain well under 60k....Challenge will be to find one that is in a fit state to cross the Atlantic within that budget...
Ebbtide 36 :60k to play with.
Sub 37 ft.
Long keel and a skeg hung rudder are a must.
No med boats.
What would you choose?
Asking for a friend. :encouragement:
P.S. A 1996 era Rustler 36 is high on the list!
