    Hydroptere abandoned - Available for $20,000

    I'll bet no one's paying the yard charges, either.

    Sterling Hayden

    Yeah- he did a lot of pretty amazing things. He even served as a New York police officer. Too bad he was done in by Michael Corleone.

    Someone did. His name is Jim Lee, builder of the Left Coat Dart. Currently, there are two for sail, one in Anacortes WA and one in Hawaii discounted for shipping back to the mainland. Comfortable cockpit, comfortable down below, great ergonomics all around. Easy and fast. And I did buy an ad.

    Unless they race with everybody in the cockpit (on both sides) and a CA state flag on the stern, the race is over. We've all been there: hand the helm to the newest or youngest crew, have the ballast technicians take over trim, and pass out the beer. Don't break the boat and don't tear the sails; otherwise, have at it.

    Shifter? So these were manual transmission? Is that crank on top of the wheel a clutch perhaps? I realize that automobiles didn't really have effective automatic transmissions until 1940, and that they were not popular until the 1950's (the hydromatic). I didn't know vintage boats were manual.

    What's the rotating handle in the center of the steering column (above the wheel) for? Is that just a crank to take the wheel on and off?

    The spiral companionway is an amazing piece of art.

    Trying to Buy a Boat

    I don't know what it's like there, but here, selling a nice sailboat is nearly impossible. Is the seller drowning in offers? If he wants it to move, he has to at least make it possible for the buyer to perform due diligence. I know I'd jump through a few hoops if I had a buyer on the hook (I did buy an ad). Just saying.

    Trying to Buy a Boat

    It's hard to picture how you could get insurance for a boat you don't own. The seller's insurance should still be in effect. Perhaps they could provide a binder to cover you moving the boat?

    Check the classifieds. Man, do I have a boat for you!

    The horror.... the horror....

    Right now, I have about 90 cumulative feet (okay, 30 meters) of boat. I'd like to have the doctor lop off about 30 feet, if only someone wanted my excess.

    That's the bow propeller.

    It certainly the bow; that's why there's a flag... oh wait...

    The hull number before this one sold for $10,000 more than the asking price for this one. We assume that someone might want to transport it to the mainland (it would be great in S.D. or the PNW) and took the discount off the top. PM me if anyone wants more information. Yes, we did buy an ad: that's where this pic came from.
