    9:30 am Monday...an interesting boat just went by....I have no idea if it's in the race....looked like about 20-22ft with six very large solar panels on top and I would guess an electric motor....two guys going south

    Tell me about Cape Dory Typhoons

    One last thing....the trailer.....this last one had a 2005 triad single axle trailer which was nice...my other one had a nice older trailer with rollers....hard to work on the bottom...some have no trailer and others have trailers that aren't roadable....like tires and bearings....that's an important part of the typhoon purchase...only other thing would be how old are the sails??

    Tell me about Cape Dory Typhoons

    Couple of other things.....prices range from 2-20k depending on what it is....the last one I paid 5500 for it and sold it for 7k....things you can do:...get rid of the ugly blue decks by applying interlux interdeck beige paint....the boat looks amazingly better....strip and redo the teak.....I put cdi roller furling on ....I never liked lifelines so I only bought ones without lifelines....get one with a nice hull not all banged up and nice teak that is not damaged....the rest can be fixed easily....if you want a picture or two email me....the people that bought mine love that boat....
