Re: Fuel tank removal on F32

Why not just cut the top off and use it for "hidden" storage. The cutout could be trimmed out to appear to be still intact. In my mind, I am picturing a kitchen sink rim from the old days. Anyone looking under the cushion would just see a tank with lines. But, inside you could hide virtually anythin...

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. Within that boat there are two designations; SK for shoal draft keel length and standard length. The ‘other’ models you m...

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...
