I believe Ghengis had one - for sale for a long time partly built a few years back. IIRC he was a businessman - of questionable judgement since he got involved in this deal. :D

This one - obviously out of the mould.

The plug that sat at the top of Grand Boulevard in bright finish then sat in Race Rock for years painted baby blue with a keel mounted and lifelines but not much else until it was sold as the aforementioned movie prop.

Don't know if Vlad ever had one - certainly never finished one as he kept Kanata until he died.

That's probably it SJB. I lost track a long time ago, or care. It's hard to do in the best of the times. Dealing with that Sceptre 41 I didn't know that Hien had built a few 41's in Washinton state that had some issues with things like blisters etc. Odd really as I knew Hein quite well. But it's hull #6.

Vlad's wife and his son have kept it in decent condition but they do the minimum to do the "sleepy boats" rule at our club.

They put that in a number of years ago. it's a club; not a storage facility and not being used as it's one of the best moorages in the area. So you don't use it; you can lose it. The rules state (approx.) that you have to do a certain amount of usage is involved. Events like sailpast, racing or going to the outstations so you are off the dock or? At least making that commitment. Again, it's a club and a lifestyle. Not a commercial establishment. Most private marina's don't give a ratzass as long the moorage is paid promptly. Yes, people get sick (like me) there is certain latitude for that but older members leave the sale of the boat way too long and can't take care of it either. Little sad but?

I have a "gem" for the committee to review and ruminate about:

https://panamacity.craigslist.org/boa/d/panama-city-buccaneer/6982036774.html

00X0X_eXPzl9OWKRx_1200x900.jpg

Where to start?

The cutaway of the forefoot to keel reminds me of a "Simpsons" standard overbite.   Good for nosing the bow in over a rock or sand to get to the beach?  

The keel center of resistance is so far aft, I though the backend fell off.

Must not forget the two rows of windows/ports.   Low ones for light, high ones for air.

The ad does not even begin to mention the interior, let alone show it.    Probably too "Halloween," even for CL.

Next, the arch.   It looks to be a "Lowes" special, made only from the finest of Southern Pine cut offs and Chinese PVC.

This makes an Out Island look like a design of grace and beauty....

I like the hull split detail but only on motorboats.

Green is a good hull colour for that, any dark colour, I suggest woodland camo.

Bill Garden designed that at the request of his old friend who owned Bayliner.

A perfect demonstration that the client is not always right..

Considering what an artist Garden was and his almost unique ability to design any type or style of boat, he got it very wrong on a few occasions.

For example, the sister to that eyesore - the Bayliner Buccaneer 30

Okay ... can that be the actual waterplane of this boat? Maybe it's just an optical illusion caused by the wedding cake nature of Bayliners, but it seems like not nearly enuf submerged volume. Unless the thing is unballasted & built entirely of Styrofoam (possible)?

I think they invited Bill out for dinner, asked him to design a boat for them, then proceeded to spike his dinner with LSD and mushrooms.  

When he woke up two days later, the motorsailer was on the drawing board, and all his face muscles were pulled from laughing the whole time.

Lovely bullrails, however. And the monstrosity in the background rather improves the Bayliner's appearance. Always park beside a boat uglier than your own!

Camo is a brilliant idea. There are some new digital / multi scale / fractal camos on the market that are incredible. I bought some holsters and a mag carrier in hexcam-spectre-13 and this stuff is spooky. It fools the eye like the old dazzle warship paint jobs or snake skin. The mag carrier fell in the holster bin and even though I was looking right at it I could not make it out.

Still, as advanced as camo has become in the case of a Buccaneer fire is the only lasting solution.

Again, I know the owner and builder. I know where that boat has gone, and safe to say it's done some trips that might make you think twice about what you just wrote.

 

The owner and builder is Skip Allen...

winner of the first Singlehanded TransPac..navigator and crew on more crewed Hawaii races than I can count.

Winner of the 30th anniversary Singlehanded TransPac.  Crew aboard every first-rater IOR boat of the late 60's and 70's including Imp and more boats that I can even name. Skip Allen, personal friend to guys like Ron Holland and Bill Lee.  That boat has been trailered from Santa Cruz to Puget Sound and cruised the Salish Sea for weeks.  Skip thought really hard about entering the R2AK with Wildflower.

You know Skip Allan as "sleddog" here on Sailing Anarchy.   Now shush up with the shit talk about his boat.

The offset companionway is a joke from some dimwit(s) who used to rag on some of Bob Perry's designs (at least I think that is how it started).  Was not mean to be a serious comment, that much I am sure of. Too far back to remember for sure but likely the "buy my plans and build your steel boat guy".  He was a piece of work who was finally flicked.

I don't believe this thread was meant to be taken seriously, but instead is a place to voice lighthearted opinions, and that's what I did.  I voiced my opinion.  I think it's ugly, and I don't really care what you think of that.  My question about its value was a serious one.  2012, IMO, is fairly new, so I was asking if $25K seemed reasonable.  

Had you been paying any attention, you would have noticed that I said I really like this ugly floating camper, and it's 10X uglier than that goofy looking catamaran.  So clearly I like ugly boats.  

Nice of you to come to rescue of your friend, though.

This thread is all in good fun I think.  I suggest the subject of ridicule be moved to the "ugly boats admiration" thread.  I don't know him but I suggest the owner might approve - he named it a "Frogcat 22" for crying out loud.

The boat has been discussed on Sailing Anarchy before, though.

https://forums.sailinganarchy.com/index.php?/topic/133223-skip-allens-new-wildflower-is-a-multi/

As for Skip Allen,  look up "sleddog" on the member list, here.  Ski was on board Imp for the '79 Fastnet.

and there's this:  http://sailingmagazine.net/article-38-abandoning-ship:-gut-wrenching,-perilous,-sometimes-right.html

If Skip Allen chooses to build himself a small cruising catamaran, I'm not going to argue with him about the boat.

So now you know all about the boat.

BTW, Winston 29 there's a sistership to that floating camper parked next to my Piper. I'm almost certain it's the exact same design. It's not gorgeous but if I was flat broke and needed a place to live and maybe wanted to go fishing sometimes, I could do worse.

This is so welcoming:

"Lowballers need to know. It is almost impossible to find this particular 1974 vessel, even, with minimal sails, and 
without a motor or electronics for under 7K.
It's a steal for the price from any point of perception!
On top of that I'm throwing in the YANMAR 27Hp. TO BOOT.
That alone is $3500. Though now the price for vessel and motor has gone up $500, as I power washed the entire topsides.
So lowballers and underexperienced dreamers. Do not waste my time."

There are some other gems such as this threat:

"If you don't buy it or trade me a car truck other van of equal value that will pass smog
Then eventually I will refit it. "

Who will keep this person from refitting it? I actually do like the boat (Yankee 30) to some degree.

The ad also says the boat has been on the trailer for 15 years.  I kinda doubt that engine has even been turned over in 15 years. 

So an engine that is probably hopelessly seized (and certainly needs a substantial overhaul) is worth $3,500? 

I don't think so.

On the used sailboat market it actually does.

Most used boats are left so filthy and in such disarray that the rare clean one will fetch top dollar.

I speak from experience. :D

Makes it more likely to sell, if priced with some reasonableness relative to the market, yes.

Cleaning does not add any value, though. Fuckin' things ought to be kept clean to start with.

I had a relative trying to see a 20-ish (big for the time) outboard, on an almost-junk trailer. He had it listed for sale in various penny ads for ten years or so. During that time he dropped the asking price a little, and the transom went from a couple of potentially soft spots to saggy-rotted. For free beer, I came over and helped/directed him in fiberglassing in a new transom, FG over cheap plywood of course... he doubled the asking price. It still didn't sell and last I know (fifteen or so years ago) it was still in the back yard of the house which had since been sold, overgrown with weeds.

So many people are determined to set the example of "How Not To"

Um, do you have any idea who owns that?....or what kind of travelling that boat has done?   Or who built it? You might want to find out before trashing it on SA.   Trust me on this.

Funny. I anchored near that boat off Sucia island in the San Juans back in 2014, and I am now in Capitola, which appears to be its current location.

Here's a Fraser River deal for the right person.

Just needs new flotation, a new structure and a new roof.

And only $5500.

Gotta like the beauty tied up to it as well. $5,500... Those must be metric dollars.

This is so welcoming:

"Lowballers need to know. It is almost impossible to find this particular 1974 vessel, even, with minimal sails, and 
without a motor or electronics for under 7K.
It's a steal for the price from any point of perception!
On top of that I'm throwing in the YANMAR 27Hp. TO BOOT.
That alone is $3500. Though now the price for vessel and motor has gone up $500, as I power washed the entire topsides.
So lowballers and underexperienced dreamers. Do not waste my time."

There are some other gems such as this threat:

"If you don't buy it or trade me a car truck other van of equal value that will pass smog
Then eventually I will refit it. "

Who will keep this person from refitting it? I actually do like the boat (Yankee 30) to some degree.

I've been watching that one for a while on our local CL.  The guy is in fantasyland.

A lovely boat.  More of a Freudian slip than typo, though.  :)

Wow..the owner is going to find out about the realities of market value for a 19 year old sailboat.

$264K for a V-40?

That's not a typo, it's a statement of fact.

It's a V42, so later production. The price does seem a little high.

Here is one tired-looking project.  

That's a brilliant find!  The ad says "Propulsion type:  sail" but also there is no rigging and there are no sails.  That is mockable (along with everything else about that derelict hull).

I think it will get what it deserves, what with being installed on a boat and all. Doubt that was in the design brief for the material.

Here is one tired-looking project.  What is a "Chinese Rig Schooner?"  One that has no rig (and probably never did?)

https://portland.craigslist.org/nco/boa/d/cathlamet-55-ft-steel-schooner-reduced/6994517432.html

I admire that it at least floats.

they were afraid you'd get the wrong idea if they called it a 'junk rig'

Does it come with the osprey nest? Will the osprey be cool with you moving its home?

This time of year, it should be OK

But you do NOT want to piss off a mama osprey. Not a pretty sight, not at all

There was a nesting pair on Cayuga Lake that assaulted canoers & kayakers who got too near. Always astonished at the sticks they manage to build into their nests. This is basically a large hawk:
