It's been over 40 years for me, probably the Miami Boat Show in the mid 1970s.

Went to the Auckland show maybe 4  years ago - when my boat was in NZ- I found it quite sad.

All I recall of new boats in the water was a benny, a bav and a Hanse....maybe 45 feet... dunno...

Stuck my nose in the Hanse .... a couple of a certain age were making  very impressed noises .... may have even been thinking of buying it.

I was anything but impressed .... not even a decent marina queen in my eyes.

Hmmmm.  I love boat shows.  There will never be a world where I can afford or even want a new boat, but I really enjoy seeing boats that are out of my league.  But I have to agree with Cisco; the sailboat pickings are getting slimmer.  The Miami show is a good case in point:  fewer and fewer sailboats are being shown.  The Strictly Sail part of the show used to be a separate show at Miamarina, but it's gotten to the point where they've just combined it with the power boats at Key Biscayne.  Newport is still strong, and I've heard that Annapolis hasn't lost any steam, but the smaller shows that I used to go to are either gone or don't have any sailboats at all.

The local show has been a waste of time since the 90's unless you are looking for a "boat show" deal on electronics or sails.

85% of it is obnoxious ski boats with roll bars full of stereo speakers to ensure everyone within a couple of miles knows you are there.

Didn't realize this is an international trend...I thought it was just a Southern US thing.  Boats usually contain 2-3 drunk rednecks, cranking country or even rap.  The cherry on top is an oversize US or confederate flag.

not really mocking, except he has the price right.  but sails cost extra...

https://washingtondc.craigslist.org/nva/boa/d/topping-sail-boat-catalina-22-free/6893727903.html

Come and get this 22' Catlina (1972) for free.
The Boat was re-rigged and could be ready to sail with a little TLC.
The hull, drop keel and mast/rigging are sound and in working order.
There are no electronics on the boat.
1 main sails and 2 jibs (from Bottger Sails, NY) in excellent conditions and stowed in bags indoors, are available for $350
Johnson 8 hp Outboard, with gas container is available for $250.
Motor will run after a tune up.
The original seat cushions are also stowed and are in decent shape.
This boat has been kept on a lift, but hasn't been sailed in a year.
This Boat came with the house purchase and I'm not a sailor so I'd like to find it a good home.
There is no trailer, so you would need to tow it from the lift.
There is also a nearby boat ramp if you want to haul it away.

Not a lot of great boat show deals either, unless you want to buy an actual boat.  There's always the discount sunglasses booth, but most stuff that is discounted is only discounted about 5% off regular retail.  I don't go for the deals; I go for the entertainment value.  I love looking at and hanging out around sailboats and with other sailors.  And swag.  Swag is good.  Granted, there are limits in how many keychain floats a man really needs, but I'm not there yet.  And I could always use another pair of sunglasses.

And I really like it when it's a combo power and sailboat show.  The differences in the crowds at each part makes me smile.  Sure the power boat side has more young people and families, but sailors know more about the boats.  Usually. 

Times have changed though;  I remember back in the day (late '80's) when I lived in NYC, and would go to the NY Boat Show.  This is an indoor extravaganza held every January.  The show is at the huge Javits Center, and used to be fully half power boats and half sailboats.  Back then, it looked more like a car show, with models and tacky come-ons designed to get you to look.  The models on the power boat side would be dressed in bikinis or other similar (lack of) clothing, while those on the sailboat side looked like they had stepped out of an LL Bean catalogue.  I recall one time at the show where the mid-20's and single me saw a really beautiful salesgirl in the cockpit of a sailboat, and decided to ask her some questions about the boat (ahem).  I climbed the stairs to the cockpit, and proceeded to charm the young lady.  She smiled back and said "you really need to ask my Dad those questions".  Out from below pops the young lady's father, ready to answer any questions and take my deposit check.  I didn't know if I should admire his sales technique or call the cops for pimping out his daughter.

Not sure how we drifted to sculptures but it reminds me of the Oberto ones.  My son played kid soccer with the great grandson of founder Constantine Oberto, (Nice, at games we had all the jerky and meat snacks you could eat from the Oberto motorhome).  Year end party was at the grandparents waterfront home where they'd commissioned life size bronze sculptures of their 3 or 4 kids dancing and cavorting in a wide circle next to the beach.  It was a really fun, playful celebration of the family that fit into the landscaping beautifully.  I wish I had pictures.  They must have moved on as I don't think the sculptures are there any more.  You can see the house from the I-90 bridge but my eyes aren't as good as they used to be.  I really should make the ~7 mile jaunt in the outboard to see for sure.  Stupid new I-90 bridge there is not tall enough to sail under, the high rise span adds another ~20 miles round trip to get to the same spot, grrrrr.

Woah....   You have to work really hard at ignoring the engine room for a long time to get it that bad.   Note the mold, delaminating paint and plywood.  

I am still trying to decide about the hole in the bulkhead way in the back, it looks like someone started to jigsaw a hole and then switched over to the "damnit, I'm using a claw hammer!" method of drilling.

Jon B is right; painted statues are almost the definition of folk art. But the question at hand is not, which you like better but, would you buy a boat from the guy who made The Skaters? As has been made abundantly clear on SA, boat building is based on a corpus of knowledge going back thousands of years and beyond some aesthetic variation, really isn't a place for whimsicality and naive self-confidence.

Sure, it's great. Of course without the centerboard, the boat goes to windward like overcooked mush, but that's what it's got the engine for.

Oh wait................

Actually I feel sorry for this boat, it's been neglected then fucked over then neglected some more. And it could be a really nice boat. All it needs is enough money and skilled labor expended to build a new one, plus about 20%

Somewhere, I read that a lot of the classical marble statues that we are used to seeing in abstract white were originally painted. Sometimes quite elaborately.  

Come to think of it, the story may have been that they were painted and dressed to look as much as possible like living people.

Where to begin... The trailer, a 2 and 5/16" ball?   Who the hell would use that?   That is the first I have heard of that size.   I do admire the reuse of a strong yard stand into a substantial trailer.

The photography in some shots has hints of artistry in their composition and presentation.

Its sad to see classic plastic deteriorate like this.   If this was a wood boat, it would have already decomposed in shame from its condition.

Another boat that you would have to sink multiples of her asking price to bring her back to functional and human habitable shape....

I actually own a 2 5/16, heavy duty equipment trailers used to use them before going to the military style or 5th wheel.  The spanish moss is a nice touch for art's sake.  One must wonder what people are thinking, like uh, didn't we used to have a boat back there?

$4,500 for the trailer but boat must sell first.

OR $7,000 as package.

I'd say the trailer is probably worth his asking price, or worth $3,000 if you must take the boat to get it.

Electrical will need repairs as well, Arced when the water hit it 
Cushions stayed above water.
Sails and rigging are all good
This is a huge loss on a very nice boat 
I can't keep repairing as some dude is made it his mission to sink / destroy it
This boat had it all, fun fast, comfortable 
$700 has to leave Long Beach soon
No trailer, I have tow service or sail it off, Will need a winch handle

I am looking for a long speaker box, one that has the speakers on both sides of the box, as I want to screw it to the deck of my homebuilt sailboat as a LOUD sound system. Pictured are some boxes that kind of represent what I'm looking for, and a pic of my boat with a future sound system attached.  

I'll pay $5 for a speaker box in shitty condition, unless you think this is a cool project and just want to give it to me.
I'll pay $25 to $35 for a speaker box in decent condition.
Up to $50 for one in great shape.
If there are speakers in it, I'll pay for the equivalent value of used speakers too.

This is actually a nice little boat.  I have several Chris Craft sea skiffs and a Cavalier.  Cavaliers were the plywood and kit boat division of Chris Craft.  As such, putting new topsides on would be a pretty simple task.  It would also be very easy to install wanted upgrades before the sides go on.  If that boat were listed somewhere closer to me, I would probably buy it, as I’m looking for a cool little boat to go up and down the river in.

Only $17K

85% finished....

"This well made cold molded Vancouver 27 is unfinished, never launched and has a lead ballast, new installed Vetus diesel engine, and interior with cabin sole and bulkheads. Included are aluminum toe rail and stanchions, installed portlights and hatch, stove/oven, many stainless steel fittings and other parts. Will consider offers."

That engine does not look NEW to my admittedly-jaundiced eye. Seems like a pretty nicely done boat though.....

it's that dreaded 15% undone

That looks like the hull that was sitting outside the small boat shop on Granville Island for years. More effort spent keeping the moss off than outfitting it.

Should someone point out to that guy that for $17k you can buy a 27' boat that is complete and ready to sail away?  

Edit:  Just looking on Craig's List where that boat is listed, the following boats are listed for less than $17k.  All appear in sail-away condition:

CS 27; Cal 2-29; Mirage 27, Hughes 31, Catalina 30, Alberg 30, Olson 30, Choate 27 and ODay 27, C&C Redwing 30.  Prices on those boats are $8k to $17k.

Or for probably less than what it would cost to get this one finished, you could just buy one already done and save a lot of pain, broken dreams and inevitable cost of having it finally cut up and taken to a dumpster https://thunderbirdmarine.com/yacht-sales/robert-harris-vancouver-27/

Yeah, but they aren't "brand new, never launched". :ph34r:

True.  Those boats are all used up.  May as well throw them into the landfill.  :D  Bwahahahaha.

Unlikely.

In 1972 Robert moved to Vancouver, Canada and established a small drawing office where his first design was the V27, which was also Robert’s first monohull. These plans were drawn up to meet the challenge placed by George Hartley for the design of a small ocean-crossing cutter, which he paid for in kind by providing Robert an office in an old iron works building in False Creek, Vancouver. The V27 that George built in endgrain balsa core glassfibre laminate attracted Trade Wind Boats, also of Vancouver, who asked Robert for a production license for V27s and thus started the production of a new family of Robert Harris designed ocean going monohull designs (i.e. specifically for this history - the Vancouvers), many of these were to be built by US, Canadian and Taiwanese boat builders as well as by Pheon and Northshore in Europe. Robert’s Vancouver yachts were to become very much a world-wide family.

It must be Polynesian week in CL:

https://tampa.craigslist.org/pnl/boa/d/saint-petersburg-polynesian-sailing/6905836426.html

Birthed as proa, grew up to be a tri:

Hand built Polynesian canoe with gaph rig sail and flashing construction. This was built using traditional construction methods and have withstood the test of the Gulf of Mexico.

I sailed this canoe 230 miles from High Spring to tarpon Springs Florida. The canoe at first had one outrigger but now there's two and the bamboo is hard and green.

00101_gOuCJaVcYpu_1200x900.jpg

I admire the reuse/recut of an old sail, although I think there needs to be remedial aerodynamics course redo for the sailmaker on this one (gaph rigged, no less.)

I especially admire the cosy natural bimini on the stern.   Instead of junk in the trunk, this is more trash on the transom...   But replacements are plentiful in FL., just need a pruning saw and your bimini is green again!

I also admire the natural fiber standing and running rigging.

Finally, thats the first time I have heard of flashing being used in traditional construction. Maybe traditional house construction.   Ahhh, "lassshhing," not flashing, ok...

So why the hell didn’t the Professor, Skipper and Gilligan put their heads together and build a large sailing Proa and use the costumes from the variety shows they would host as sails? 

Jesus they were stupid

I know a guy who built a really cool Half Fast Cruiser starting with the bottom of a Chris Craft that was found in a field.

I hope no one helps at all with the Dubstep Queen.

https://docs.google.com/document/d/1Av5J2ifGMuD8YntNQ29mee-2IZXPdRpYRhxMlw0B0HQ/edit?fbclid=IwAR2Jmok7svgwSw6A3QdmDZKjxJ64lSTq2RA8e9qHdyW0GkroNIpg1WiFlz4

I wasn't sure what to do with that one. It's kind of a Coolboat. It's also more than a bit Ugly and has Admirable attributes.

It's a dream that actually got built and stands a good chance of costing money for no reason while deteriorating, so a very young, budding candidate for the Zombie Fleet.

But it's barely usable and most of the stuff to make it that way is not included and that's mockworthy.

I saw this boat on the beach at at Jericho last summer I think, and I thought to myself, "ooh a folk proa, this needs to be shared with the SA gang"  but I was on a training paddle and when I got back it was gone. It was always destined for this thread.

Stiffed the last winning bidder too, but adding a $1000 minimum bid should prevent having to do that again!
