General Discussion / Afternoon Delight new owner
« Last post by Beregiña on May 15, 2018, 07:59:48 PM »

I just bought a CSY 37 Afternoon Delight in Whittier, Alaska.
 The previous owner had bought her down in Washington State and sailed up to the Prince William Sound in Alaska. I'll take her to Valdez, AK in June.

I have an Ericson 27 in Virginia. I though I knew what I was getting into. Hoo boy, one look at my new boat, and I am overwhelmed by JUST HOW MUCH BOAT I've got.

Time to hit the books, read up on that engine, get familiar with the boat.

Something else to ponder. Weight also depends on the rig. As you know, these Kenyon  masts are very stout and very heavy. So a tall rig would add a substantial amount to the overall tonnage. I have a shoal draft and a short rig. again at 37,500 mostly empty.

 It must depend on the draft. Not A Clew at 44,000 was a deep keel, now a shoal draft keel. My last haul out, fairly empty of fuel, water, and stores, shoal keel, was 37,500. So, these  boats are heavy, considering they are solid glass with no coring.

Hi Lindsay,  I have not had my w/o weighed, but I am sure that it is much greater than the original weight considering fuel, water, supplies, spare parts and other things that have been added over the years, along with simply sitting in the water for more than 30 years.  Not a Clew is providing a good estimate here.
I would suggest finding a shipping company with a more heavy duty trailer!

We hauled our boat (w/o 189) and the travel lift said it was 44k with not much water or fuel aboard.
Hull and Rig / Nett Weight

Hi Everyone,
I have a CSY44 walkover, deep draft. I am trying to arrange a haul out and transport to my rural property. The problem I have is that most of the low loaders have a capacity of 16 tons. The specs for the boat is 37,000 lbs, which is about 17 tons. My question is does anyone know the weight (from experience). There is no point for me to organise a crane and a loader only to fine that it will be overweight and I will have to return it to the water and cost myself a lot of money.

Feedback would be appreciated

My CSY37B (Hull 82) has its shore power on starboard side behind the power panels. Plenty of room in there for panels and busses and galvanic isolators. I've never considered moving it as it would be a pain to have the distribution switch in the galley.

Looking thru the photos the name on transom is SKOAL. Chain plates upgraded to the outside. Boat did not look neglected at all. Mostly all original unmolested interior.
