    I admire that they can get 13 years out of a bottom job. I’m lucky to get two. Really not a bad deal there for someone. The boat looks clean and well maintained.

    This one is back once again. Now with “new improvements!” https://washingtondc.craigslist.org/mld/boa/d/homebuilt-sailboat-134/6569940859.html

    Two sailors and dogs rescued after 5 months

    Two losers with no jobs... smacks of a book deal to me.

    Tom Scott?

    Same thing happened on TSBB. He was one of the top posters and took offense, packed up his stuff and left.

    That's SOP for Boat Angel. They've been around for years somehow. Sort of a clearinghouse for donated boats. The owner provides the description and photos and they list it. I'm sure the marina owner will sleep better when that one is gone...

    http://washingtondc.craigslist.org/doc/boa/5569804018.html Where does one dock something like this? And would they pay by the foot or the square foot?? I admire the fact that at three stories tall, this thing is able to stand upright.

    Clipper had some talented designers. The 26 was a real standout. OUCH!!!! WTF were they thinking? What amazes me is that William Crealock was named as the designer. And for more than one of the Clipper boats so it was not just a matter of taking an existing Crealock hull mold and modifying it. You never know what was going on behind the scenes. What were the inter-personal relations, what promises were made, how much was anyone paid, who actually did the work? Looks like a drunk monkey was trying to copy a Columbia.

    Dang, it sure looks to me like it's sitting on a trailer. Maybe there are so many random parts piled up, the guy doesn't realize it? And the date on that photo is almost eight and a half years in the future... maybe if you run out and buy the boat today, it's actually in great shape! FB- Doug ^^ This. My guess is it is still sitting in the same spot, present or future, still covered up with the same junk...

    I had one of those as a kid also. Bought it on a whim at a yard sale and "sailed" the hell out of it, for about a week, until there was a god awful noise, turned out it was the plastic hull covering splitting away from the styrofoam. Looked back and saw what looked like a turtled hull in the water behind us. Pretty funny at the time.

    http://norfolk.craigslist.org/boa/5045790827.html Hey, it's the "predecessor to the Sunfish." Totally restored, this must be worth at least $50. Anyone know how to repair styrofoam??
