    No, not really. Just felt like stating the obvious.

    What an inane fucking thread.

    Surveyor in Hampton, VA area

    Ron is retired. Bay Harbor has been sold and is under new ownership. He is still doing a little though to help out. Lloyd would definitely be the surveyor to use.

    Damn right.
  6. Sniffing around for a point to point sport boat under 100K and More Trouble 11S blew my skirt up.

    Original owner has given her a good home. The last 2 boats (this one) have double spreader rigs and runners unlike the earlier boats.

    Trouble has the inboard rudders and inboard diesel which has been replaced with a 2 or 3 year old Yanmar and saildrive.

    Sails are good practice sails. The boat is a bit heavy with a load of batteries, 3 cyl diesel and saildrive. -18 rating there

    I can buy it for $60 but I need to get it home. Sure seems like a ball of  fun 

    Thoughts?

    Appreciate it

    It's not a question of work, it's a question of money.

    Promises was built slightly higher grade than As Larks aka Fitikoko. I don't think Fiti had the carbon in her for one thing. But overall very similar boats. Yeah, we built a Carkeek 40 last year, just finished the Miami - Eleuthera race last week with it. Fantastic race, hope more people take a crack at it next year. Dunno. I'm sure Leroi can chime in though.

    It was completely refurbished by Larry Kumins, who bought it from SMSA. @voodoochile is the current owner.

    It's just the nature of the beast. There's no money to maintain these kinds of boats in a college program. When St Mary's got done with Prelude, one of our previous donations, it was basically uninhabitable. Promises, the Tripp 38, too. You just have to be ok with the college kids getting some joy and experience out of it.

    Good to hear. It was basically all gone, and the bottom had some gnarly ass brushed on power boat anti fouling on the bottom. She is a very unique and cool boat, happy it's been brought back up to standard.

    Long time no see man. As noted she went off to the PNW. I saw it at Jabin's just before it left, needed substantial work.
