    Quest 30 known as "Flying Tiger" - Info?

    Well, when you compare it to the others, its missing alot....at its current price its actually comparable to other ones value wise: ie: no trailer, no spinnakers at all, and the other sails definatley need to be replaced (they look "below" cruising sails), engine overhaul required, top side leaks, rig needs to be redone, interior has floor boards missing, etc etc. No show stoppers, but since maintenance wasn't done for years on this one, pretty much it all needs to be done at once, so you would need to add at least $25k to get going....if you want a trailer, you are now at the same price as the others, .....but you did the work. So, the current price is reasonable, but not a steal.

    what kind of boat is that?

    What ever it is, it has been clearly modified.
  5. Anyone have any info on the Quest 30 that goes by the name "Flying Tiger"? Would be interested to hear.

    Fair price for a J92?

    Age matters. $40k for a brand new well rounded 30fter, sign me up. $40k for 25yr old one....not so much.

    Fair price for a J92?

    Great in light air, reasonable performance when the wind is up, able to sail 2up, and weekend cruising capability. What else you got in mind? Open to suggestions.

    Found that old T870 ad too, would have been a great boat. FYI, Not looking to ship to AUS, I want the boat for Vancouver.

    SR Max 21 (sportboat or not)?

    Sailed SR21s years ago, fun boats, but definately not a sportsboat. You will get killed in a fleet of real sporties. FWIW - I have seen them turtle, but that was with a very inexperienced crew in 20+ with breaking waves. Was surprised to see it to be honest as the boat always seemed stable.

    Fair price for a J92?

    I see guys asking just under $40k US for older ones, but that seems excessive for a 20+ year old boat with several year old sails and rigging. Are they actually selling at this price? Any insight into what these are actually being bought and sold for?

    Fair price for a J92?

    I know guys are asking just under $40k for the older model ones, but this just seems very high for a 20+year old boat, with reasonable but certainly not new sails and rigging. Any insight what they actually sell for?
  13. When did Spoffo confirm it was Rod and his son? I saw a photo that was sent supposedly to a forum member. I read how typing on a phone is so difficult. I see different spelling and punctuation errors. Some that should NEVER come up if a phone is being used to write stuff to the forum. How is it that there is no space after a period. How is it that the autocorrect is not kicking in? I am still a doubter. Although.. I must congratulate the person who sent the photo.. Pretty damn good. Easy to fake EXIF etc... and the background is so damn good. But the language and the errors that appear and are NOT consistent... quite a problem... Excellent attempt... but.. let us stop the BS. (for spelling errors, a good example is dont and don't. Both forms appear...) Go back and read - HR quoted a conversation he and Spoffo had, Spoffo confirmed it. He's real.
