Re: DIFFERENT MODELS OF 32

APM, sailboat data will have what you may be looking for including luff length. To oversimplify~ if your hull was laid in the mid 80’s you have a Freedom 32 designed by Mr. Hoyt.

F32 on the west coast appears to be a steal

Obviously it needs personal inspection, but this looks like a distress sale.

Re: Freedom 32 in NC?

The Hoyt 32 is for you! Just make sure you are starting with a sound hull and deck. Take a look at YW. There is what appears to be a great deal on a F32 @ $20K.
Long way but even with transport it could be a safe bet.

I'm having second thoughts about selling her anyway. Might just leave her back here as a vacation bolt hole.
I second that decision! What body of water are you on?

Re: Virtual Raft Up - Nov 5 @ 7 PM Eastern

"There is a 40-minute time limit for the free version. We shall see if it is enforced."

Enforced on groups of 4 or more. :(

Suggest have a 2nd Zoom set to barely overlap so peeps can move over.

Re: Cabin top cracking around the mast step

Virtually, every F32 I have seen has some deck crazing. More often than not, it is a matter of the Gelcoat being too thick. (the more is better school of thought) I'm sure you are getting a local surveyor to examine your issues. More than the crazing I would worry if there is any water intrusion int...

Re: Paul Dennis Article in Aug 2019 "Points East"

Thanks for sharing. I have talked by phone and ordered from Mr. Dennis. Wish there was a Freedom book that he wrote. Imagine the knowledge.
p.s. Always nice to read a review of a sistership to my F-32. Even if it was just part of the article.
