    Another interesting boat

    My favorite from my dingy sailing days in Langston harbor.

    Got to love the fact that he can easily drop the anchor onto the exposed battery terminals. See at 2:15

    Craigslist - Not mocking

    I started programming with an Olivetti Programma 101 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Programma_101 while I was at high school. You had to save and load your programs on magnetic cards.

    Another project (with some work to do) price a bit more realistic, 1987 Tartan 34 MkII $34,900 http://www.yachtworld.com/boats/1987/Tartan-34-MkII-3015734/Channel-Islands-Harbor%2C-Oxnard/CA/United-States#.WRxoqbpFy5g

    Craigslist - Not mocking

    I took a quick look at Yachtworld, boats of that vintage and size are mostly listed between $30K and $40K so I expect they sell closer to $30K, I doubt that this one would go for much more than $40K

    An example of "Someone else spent the $" 1987 Sabre 34, a bit pricy but otherwise looks good. https://sfbay.craigslist.org/scz/boa/6128172676.html

    Lot's of new stuff and the length is given at 2520 ft - I wonder how I could fit it in my slip!

    Of course it is a sailboat, just read the ad "propulsion type: sail" ‚Äč The picture must be for the other boat

    Wow. What a steal. Looks like it's hogged a tiny bit. Not hogged. it's 'the wisdom of the wood'. Since the boat is upside down it the boat has sagged, we might as well mock with the right terms.

    The boat keeps heeling when it dries out to give you that authentic feeling of sailing when you gently drift aground and the tide goes out. Note you really would not notice the decrease in speed and given the tidal flows in the UK your VMG is probably better.
