Roberts NEW YORK 65

Hi Buce, Surfing a Bruce Roberts designed "Carol Lee" down some 12-14 occasional 16+ foot / 5 m seas. Winds were sustained 35 knots gusting higher. The Carol Lee is a steel 65 foot long cutter rigged sloop. This video was taken shortly after sunrise just south of Cape Mendocino. The Coast Pilot describes Cape Mendocino as a place of "great climactic change" I concur! Super fun!  Bruce, video of one of your designs  surfing down waves.  That's me on the helm. Andrew  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V6y9pb4Z2jc&feature=youtu.be

Hi Bruce,
Andrew Bermel, my ex-USCG delivery captain sent u a link to the Carol Lee.  The original name was Melon Eye, so now you know: she actually is the New York 65 on your website. Second owner bought her in Coose Bay, OR sailed her to Ilwaco and put her in the boat yard 3 years ago.
You designed a beautiful, very fast ocean runner: She starts surfing beyond hull-speed and can do a steady 14-17 knots, top speed so-far was 20.5 knots!    I'll send some pics later on,  Best Regards, Hans Duetz

Hi  Bruce,

I’ve attached a few pictures of her sailing, we’ve only owned her about 5 months so haven’t had a chance to get really good pictures. She looks pretty rough and needs a paint job but we are slowly improving her while we cruise. We love her because she was well made and has good bones. Even though she’s 65’ long we find that the both of us can handle her with ease. A great design.  Regards Carley.

On the left we see the C-Flex Fiberglass being installed on a hull mold as described above. Similar methods are used to install core material such as Corecell or Airex foam.

 

On the left we see hull rolled over to the upright position and then the mold is lifted out of the hull shell. The mold is sometimes removed in one piece as shown here or in parts depending on the shape of the hull and the method used to laminate the hull.
