I just picked up a very clean Hobie Holder 12 for the lake cabin in Northern Mn, for the kids. Every day for 3 weeks and they should be ready for summer sail camp.

 

Assume hook a couple milk bottles to the mast head?

For all you Texas-based Flying Dutchman lovers!

 

 

 

...wow,, that'd be a gift at 3x the price

 

 

Agreed, although for me personally it is far enough away to make the trip time a significant cost.... sigh

I like swim noodles better. The H12 seems like a nice little boat, let us know how it sails

Cost us $500 to get a dinghy from Seattle to SF.

Here's an interesting one from Ventura, CA. Claims to be 1930's vintage and listed as 16 feet.

 

Most likely a vintage wooden I-14 and probably not 1930's as I don't think hot-molded plywood hulls were around at that time. It's also NOT a Thistle based on the seat design. Old I-14's shared a close resemblance to Thistles; Sandy Douglas (Thistle designer) raced I-14's before WW-2.

Gone.

Did you screen capture it?

 

BTW Sandy Douglas also raced canoes but you already knew that. (thistle is nearly an exact geosim of a 1940 I14.)

 

Not gone, ad must have expired. Here it is:

Traded emails with a long time US I-14 sailor who says this boat is a USOD I-14 of late 1940's into 1950's vintage built by Douglas & McCloud (D&M) of hot molded mahagony. D&M was the builder of wooden Thistles (actually I think they subbed out the actual hulls to US Plywood; who also built hot molded PT boats during WW-2).

PT boats were not hot-molded plywood, they weren't plywood at all. They were double-planked, with an adhesive-soaked canvas between layers.

couple thoughts:

 

Gouv, though you likely already know, the crew no sits that far forward on that beautiful Finn. Still, the idea of upkeep is prideful and scary, at least to this dodger.

 

Lonbordin, the advert fits the area, sadly. I have to wonder if the rig was pinched?

That's a find, all right- they mention the R2AK but not the Everglades Challenge- it would be an awesome boat for either.

I'm not a multihull guy but these things are well engineered, simple, fast... all good things. Not so easy to row, that's the one downside.

I agree with Steam Flyer. Classic in line and water. My problem would be mooring and storage, but it is in my head. A bigger Shark, with head room and a swill box.

It's odd. When I click on links from this thread, they sometimes get flagged by the work firewall as "Personals/dating." Is the firewall trying to tell me something?

Tsk! Tsk!

Looked again at the photos. I didn't notice the trim ridge stopped part way back.

I would love to have a wood Finn. Soooooo cool

Aye Capt, especially one with those credentials.

 

They sail so quiet but not sure about spars now, with all the AL and carbons. I have not kept up and lost my Paul Elvstrom autographed pic.

 

Finn is very much dinghy porn to me and wood is like MM stark nekkid...if I did not have current project going...might be tempted to drive out and suffer.

Is this 'heat bubbling' delamination? . I assume its not glass over wood and it doesn't look like osmotic. I don't need another boat, just curious what it is and what somebody could / should do about it.

Now THERE is an ad chock-full of information !

 

I've never even heard of the Volant - doesn't look terrible...trailer is worth nearly his asking.

The Volant is an FD hull minus the back 1' or so, and a simpler daysailer rig. Decked over, bench seats, IIRC it's not quite self-bailing but very nearly so. Great boat, didn't catch on, I'd buy this one myself if it were closer to me.

 

There actually was one for sail in Virginia last year but the guy wanted $4k for it on a crap trailer and OEM running rigging & sails. At least, that trailer looks good (might even be galvanized) and there is enough rigging that the mast can stand up.

I'm not familiar with the term 'nearly self bailing'

 

Would that be a bit like 'nearly pregnant'.

Luger, as a brand, has made appearances in the mocking craigslist thread in CAIMG_1942.JPG

A guy in the keys tried to sell/finance me one once...he thought me living on a 22ft boat wasn't "cool"???

 

He got huffy puffy when I didn't call him after he insisted I call him the next day as he insisted I'd change my mind about buying his derelict Luger hahaha...total conman reminded me of bubba Clinton to no end with his phony "oh shucks" persona...

 

Poor emotionally challenged temper tantrum prone kiddo sour puss was so emotionally hurt I wouldn't be his friend, buy his boat he bad mouthed me to anyone/everyone who'd listen...that lasted a few months till he started saying my neighbor was a pedophile (his retaliation for my neighbor who quit working on his motor job as shithead sailor pissd hm off more than me) he called me a faggot till the off duty law enforcement lady who lived in our marina explained hate crimes and their punishments to him...wasn't long after that he left either now that I think about it LOL

Seems the prices are a bit up there? But, it is warm now.

 

What people ask for and what they sell for are two different things. B)

Longbordin, I agree; and, re the boat, hang loose, bending over gets old fast, something will show. Patience wins every time.

Love it. But the price seems to be off by approximately one order of magnitude. Move that decimal one place.

True enough. Poop floats...but I am still having dreams of that Fairey Finn above...remarkable, and bit bit too far for me, with current project near finished.

Maybe the reverse of craigslist specials, but after seaching around the local craigslist sites for a Bucc 18,(which seems to fit our need) and finding nothing, then branching out further and further to find a boat I decided to place a "want to buy ad"

1 day later I had 3 local responses and went with the one that had decent to good sails, new Nickles blades, Harken hardware upgrades and a fresh Caulkins galvanised trailer.

About a mile from my house,

For $1200.00

Who knew?

Heck, I'd have jumped on that and I already have a Buccaneer.

What year/manufacturer of the Bucc? 1200 may not be too bad, especially with a trailer.

 

Of course, I love me some Bucc goodness. Not as much as JimmyY does, but I love me some Bucc.

Star - $450 with trailer

http://stlouis.craigslist.org/boa/5669158984.html

00v0v_9f1JPJF4cJf_600x450.jpg

 

The guy selling it is about as sketchy as they come. No title for boat or trailer, will not look up the sail number and won't say where he got it from. Does anyone recognize the boat?

 

It's also a little odd that the boat has Missouri registration but the boom has Illinois registration.

Pic is one the owner sent me before i bought it.

 

1976 chrysler. Its old but in good condition,mainsail # not this boat and upgrades and trailer seemed like pretty good value for around here.

If we get serious about the Bucc we csn always upgrade to a newer boat later on.

We already wetsanded the bottom paint of and found the bottom to be solid and pretty fair.

Why? Someone has loved that boat and it has gotten them out sailing. That is a win! We have one at our sailing center here in VT. Missing more than a few parts. I have thought it might be a good boat for the EC. Not light but not an awful hull shape. BTW, there is a Sidewinder too. The hull is amazing. Not sure where it has been all these years but it is shiny with no scratches. Amazing

Just picked up a FD (1976 Advance build) for a song on ebay, with trailer and new tires.

 

I have a US1 built by them and it is a really solid boat, other than the places they used ply. (Already replaced with corecell and glassed...)

 

Anyone know about the advance built FDs?

 

I would love to see pics of the EC boats, I have a Tornado I was thinking about doing for that, but if the FD is a better choice...

 

I am thinking a small fixed sprit, A sail. It has a snuffer already, so that would be sweet.
