    JY15 Replacement ($1200 ish)

    The 505 has a soft spot in the deck

    JY15 Replacement ($1200 ish)

    Chrysler Multineer, a decent but very heavy boat. Also old and expensive, nice condition though

    JY15 Replacement ($1200 ish)

    This example looks like a french made circa 1960s and is in self described "ok" condition. I don't like the look of it from 5 feet back, who knows about from a few inches. I looked at a Vanguard 420 but it had this a dent where the hull was stored on the dolly.

    My thinking exactly, but it still is tempting...

    JY15 Replacement ($1200 ish)

    Hello All, Having fixed the cracking issues with my JY15, I decided to sell it to get out of the class (poor construction ext.) I am now looking to replace the boat with something fiberglass...here is what I have found... https://hudsonvalley.craigslist.org/boa/d/bloomingburg-sailboat-international-470/7154874781.html A Vanguard 470 (Hull number 95 so likely early 70s) $650 OBO Two sets of sails, a dolly and a trailer, new sails (sounds like a good deal to me) My worry with this boat is after a bit of use (year or two) it will become soft (it is not yet) and be a throwaway...really want the boat but very weary of the side effects. No soft spots as of yet and the boat was sailed as of last year... already have the guy holding it for me so don't get any ideas (: I am also looking at Vanguard 15s, a Laser II and similar stuff, so if anyone in the northeast has any for sale under $1200 send me a smoke signal.

    Why we as a country (USA) are collectively screwed

    Actually, you are correct. We have been through this before, but in our country (and the world) history has proven that times like this either lead to a political and socioeconomic rift or war. Neither of these things are a desirable contingency.
