With my skipper Dan I work on our little ship ORKUN - SWELL I You can get an impression of the tendency of our ship here: Moments on the ORKUN - SWELL I
On a Gulet can stay overnight up to 12 persons. In roomy 6 double cabs with own bath & toilet you can recover yourself from the stress. If you are ever at the Cote d'Azur and want to join us, send us a message.
A Gulet is a sailsboat usually made from wood. Gulets were built since the Antique in Karien (particularly in Bodrum and Marmaris) and were over thousands of years the type of ships for the trader from the Amphora, who carried olives, wine and many other precious goods along the Turkish coasts. The wooden building ships are admired for the warmth and great atmosphere compared with the common plastic boats.
As I also do a videoblog about good food and wine, you are welcome to join my group Charlottenburg Cuisine at GREAT COOKS.
We made a episode on our ship. As we think good food and wine is part of great sailing expiriences:
The appetizer is tagliatelle putanesca. As a main course we serve cod filets provencale style and for dessert we serve baked pears in a rosé-honey sauce. Enjoy!

I installed Lifeline AGM batteries upon commissioning the boat when new. I used GPL 27T's on the engine start and bow thruster service. I used the 6 volt GPL 4ct's in the house bank ( total of six, 660 amp hour capacity)I just had to replace both of the GPL27T's. Boat was commissioned in July of 2008, so a bit over 7 years life obtained from those two. Hope to get at least a year or more from the house side, as they have been managed carefully.Just data for those interested,Sams/v LONGHAWKI B43…See More

"Even though I owned an 1980 O'Day 30, I can't answer that question. However, a builder that screws in hand rails on a 30 foot cruiser would be asking for liability claims. I don't believe O'Day would have done…"
My Oday is an '84 Oday 30. It does have one or two white caps on the cabin overhead, but it also has an interior handrail that is mounted on black rubber blocks. I removed a bung from one of the interior handrails and…"
It depends. What model O'Day are we speaking about? Who put the rails on in the first place? Are there white caps about 3/4 of an inch on the cabin overhead under where the handrails are? If yes, the rails are…"
