Interesting boat. I'm assuming it's a Baltic since C&C never had teak decks to the best of my knowledge.

I always liked the looks of the older Baltics, sharp boats that have aged well.

Agree. They're classics of their era.

I can do without the teak deck though

IS this mockery? I can't tell, it's too subtle for me

I sincerely doubt Garden ever designed a ferro boat.

Some sort of bastardized design for wood I suspect.

That's a nice rim... looks like it doesn't match the rest of the trailer wheels though.

Oh, right, the keel, sorry...... looks like a Flying Fifteen keel. Never seen anything else quite like it. Apparently it works well, they're fast boats.

There were lots of weird keels like that before designers really knew what they were doing with fins.

Homemade sailboat 13.6 feet long fully insulated. Coast Guard approved. 24 thrust trolling motor. Great little boat for two people to do some fishing or for just cruising around. 850 or best offer trailer included

At least the trailer doesn't seem to be made of house carpenter's offcuts, spare plumbing parts, with colored construction paper Elmer-glued over it

Shows imagination though.

JFC, why didn’t you jump at it? It’s only 36k and it has that rarest of rarities, a “speed rudder mechanically driven”. If that’s not enticing enough, the propellor even suits the engine FFS!

A friend of mine put his Ericson 35 up for sale. A guy called, interested in the boat but wanted it for practically free. His rationale was that he and his family were going to use the boat to spread the word of God in the southern hemisphere or something and that my friend should give the boat to him because God wanted him to have it.

My friend politely declined. The guy would check in periodically to see if my friend was ready to give the boat away. This looks like such a family.

If God *really* wanted him to have the boat, God would have provided the cash.

I'm never rude to any of them unless my polite disavowal of interest isn't accepted. After that, they opened the game, it's all open rules from there.

The JW's *did* in fact turn up while we were felling trees for where my big workshop was going and we were flat out. They've never been back.

Hey, I have a 1989 Hunter 28. It works for me, but I suppose my budget and standards are both low.

The hull has a built down, fiberglass keel stub to which the lead keel is bolted. It looks like the bottom of that stub has been fractured.  It's all solid fiberglass so the repair is probably technically feasible,  but not financially feasible. I don't know what the market value of an H28 is, but I'd guess no more than $15k. The big question is the condition of the 30-year-old Yanmar 2GM.

That was Samson's most popular design but an owner of one told me that it needed 15 - 20 knots to move under sail.

I don’t know what that is but it doesn’t look good!  My first thought was that they drilled a 2” hole through the deck to vent the composting toilet. But the pic of the toilet shows that the vent line hasn’t been connected.

Ain't that vent in the v-berth? What're the chances it's just a fan port? My ex-wife couldn't sleep unless a fan was moving air nearby, and I can see her demanding a hole in the deck in lieu of one mounted to the bulkhead.

Is that a heater exhaust just forwar of the stb fwd lower chainplate? Seems like a weird and very inconvenient place for it.

 

I don’t know what that is but it doesn’t look good!  My first thought was that they drilled a 2” hole through the deck to vent the composting toilet. But the pic of the toilet shows that the vent line hasn’t been connected.  

Wow, leaving the composter vent unconnected? That sounds nice :blink:

I've put Nicro solar-powered vents in several boats. It's generally not too hard to find a place the people don't step, like the forward hatch. They have an upgrade with a recharging battery so it runs all night, too. They're very quiet and they freshen the air considerably.

They are great to put in a head BTW if you can locate it where the cowl is not going be a hazard on deck

That boat is odd. The inside looks to be in really great shape and the outside looks like it hasn't been cleaned in a while, almost like the pictures are of two different boats. I wonder if the outside would clean up if the owner bothered. Might get a better price out of it if he did. 20k is a pipe dream.

I think he took a $1,000 boat, spent $2,000 on cushions and upholstery, and is trying to sell for $20k.  Winches look new though, so that's something.  Gelcoat looks totally shot.

A 10 VERY unique trimaran that fits 2 people. I bought it a year ago on a whim and have never sailed it. I am 6 and dont fit very well. The only think that is not perfect is there are a couple of nibbles on the front of the sail that were there when I bought it. It is still sailable the way it is.

It may be sailable, but it's not saleable, not at that price. $7.50 sounds about right.

Home made?

I was certain that was a mass production item.

Well, the seller admits to being only 6 so give them a break.

And it’s not their fault that the sail has been attacked by mice.

Also (pet peeve) 'unique' is superlative; it does not take an intensifier (very, extremely, totally, absolutely). It may, under protest, allow a mitigating adverb: This boat is rather (somewhat, fairly, almost, practically) unique.

Is that a griddle in the galley?  If you don't want to sail, maybe you can cook up some breakfast for the dock.  Pancakes for everyone!

French Toast if you're a young hot chick.
