The data displayed indicates the boat is 31.33'LOA which does not seem right for a 40' boat  Other reference say is as a 32' boat so the length seems to be right.  What does the 40 refer to?

The info I'm getting indicates there were 2 Malo 40's in the 1970's, the regular and the H models.  The only difference was the H model had 59m^2 sail area instead of 44m^2.

thank you for entering the right ballast number.
we recently purchased new racing sails so here are our sizes:
both are contender polyesters laminates
mainsail: 27.851 m2
headsail (140%): 36.261 m2

We have a mast top rig, while most ridas 35s were built with a fractional rig. almost all have bigger sails, so you should change to at least these numbers.

We have our boat chartered when we don't sail, and for our regatta customers it's good to see the right sail area to weight ratio, as it off course plays a role in their choice.

the fuel tank size is app. 80 litres ( differs per boat varying from 60-80)
the watertank is about 230 litres ( but also needs a second check) (ridas says 180 but ours is definately over 200l)

I see your platform as a very widespread and informative way to find out more about different yachts and used it frequently when we chartered (before whe bought our ridas 35).

If you like I can provide more photos and a correct interior layout. And if you lack some more info, I can off course provide it for you.

Also, the real draft of all ridasses is over 2 metres (orc measured between 2 and 2.10 metres) and ours is app 2.07 so you might want to change that as well

there were two ridas 35s (at that time named guyline 355) built with a variable draft, and We have the design papers so you might want to add that as well.

though we arent completely sure, it seems that the real weight of the boat is 5.6 tonnes, though i'll have to weigh our boat to be sure.

thank you very much for developing such a great platform and I hope you'll add those numbers soon

Many thanks to Dennis Johnson for providing great information on the Sea Eagle 31 from Stan Huntingford. http://www.sailboatdata.com/viewrecord.asp?class_id=8829

Yes, Huisman 37 came after High Tension 36! It seems like exactly the same design with a little bit extended and raked stern.

Regarding the Huisman 41, the same design (S&S design No. 2058) has been produced also somewhere in Australia and/or New Zealand.

One Huisman 37 and one Huisman 41 are listed for sale now in the Netherlands:

Yes He's been around for a while.  Don't know what to do about it exactly.  He actually helped me one time.

It would be nice if Craig had credit for the boats he designed while at S&S.  I know this would be difficult to achieve. I am a design engineer in the power boat side of the marine industry with over 100 boats of my design tooled, 100,000 built and on the water, but there is no central 'DNA Tracker' on the power boat side. That is why I enjoy this site. Very few people know that there is a vaporous mental link between a Boston Whaler 13 Sport and a T48 Hinckley. The industry is really very small and a designer can work on a variety of projects over a career, sometimes even re-encountering the same people as teammates. www.OneDesignLtd.com

Added Craig Walter to Prestige 36.

the ridas factory produces the following other models as well: Ridas 46 (Deck Salon/ racer), Ridas 33, Ridas 31 and ridas 26. All of these and the 35 can be found on: ridasyacht.com

Ridas 35:
The first one built was in 1996.
The sail area is 70 square metres.
The ballast is, as I said 2.1 tonnes

Would you like to add/correct these values on the ridas 35 page?

Thank you

Thank you.  Will get to other models asap
