Freedom 39 Express For Sale

Attitudes is about to be listed for sale, the first place that I thought of to put her was here. We bought Attitudes in New Jersey in 2005, spent 6 months cruising the East coast of the USA and then headed to the Bahamas and the Dominican Replublic for another 6 months. After that we sailed to the U...

Re: Needed both Mast for a 44' Cat Ketch

I believe these guys may be reasonably priced, but I don't have first hand experience. Freight prices could be an issue, you'd need to check.

Re: storm sail on a F30 CK?

I have an Express 39 and got stuck in 60 plus knots for about 9 hours about four days out from the UK. I set the third reef in the main and set us diagonally to the waves. It was fairly comfortable and uneventful. I do have a series drogue for just in case it gets really nasty but never had to use it.

Re: self steering vanes on barn door rudder boats?

Hi Rafael, I had a Fleming on my 39 Express which worked well once the boat was properly balanced. We had to jump over the lines that led to the wheel which shrank our cockpit a little, but wasn't too much of a bother. Have you looked at putting a trim tab on your main rudder? It looks to me as thou...

Re: Planing or surfing downwind on a F33 cat jetch

I have a 39 Express and while heading for Panama, about 200 miles off the coast of Colombia in a large following swell, we were steering with the wind vane. Everything went quiet while I was on watch and I looked up and found that the GPS showed around 18 knots as we surfed down the waves. The main ...

Re: Prop 39 Express

Hi Steve, I have a Perkins 4-108 (Nominally 50HP), not sure of the gearbox without visiting the boat (almost definitely a Hurth) with a 17 x 12 prop. I have no problems revving the engine out to 4000 rpm if need be, so it is way underpropped. If you look at the attached picture I could go to an 18" ...

Re: MAST REPAIR PROCESS F39PHS?

Hi Mike, If you can't find anyone locally http://etamax.com.au/product_design.html make the masts for Harryproa and I expect would make a quality product. I have a 39 Express, if he needs to look at the masts on that for reference, he is more than welcome (They is located around 90 minutes South of ...

Re: F39 Ketch, Attitudes, For Sale

Sorry Bighopper, I am just in the transition to hosting my web page myself. It should be available in a few days, once I get a spare machine up and running to host it. I'll post here when it's ready.

F39 Ketch, Attitudes, For Sale

With no more cruising going to happen for at least five years, we decided to put Attitudes on the market, rather than having it sitting around not being used enough. We signed some paperwork with a broker a couple of days ago to put the boat on the market. The boat has been up on the hard for the la...
