You still gotta tie it up somewhere.   ....and I'd not want to guess the remaining hull thickness....!

Hahahaha..   not my cup of tea, but I was impressed with how the interior looked.  Never expected that.   There is a "houseboat barge" at my marina in East Boston.  I dont think the interior looks half as good as this one does.  There are some AirBnB barges in the Northend of Boston.  Not sure name of the marina but a sailor at our marina said they left that marina because it was being overtaken by these AirBnB barges.

I'd park it on the tidal flat right out the front of my place.

Alternatively I'd drag it over the foreshore and onto my property, level it and use it as guest accommodation. Where I live, as long as I pay the annual registration fee (peanuts) I'm golden as far as the rules go. A registered boat on my own property is exempt from local government property regulations WRT second dwellings etc etc. And we don't have personal property tax, thank god.

Guests are going to shit. Then what?

I look at it and think it's likely to burn before it sinks. Just a hunch. Window air conditioners and boats don't mix and people who think they do are going to have other strange ideas, some of them sparky.

They are posts that you can drive into the bottom so you stay put. 13' spuds wouldn't be much use around here, the tidal range is more than that.

That pedestal sure looks to be in the way.

Still for sale I see. I'm not sure why they call it a 34. It was basically the original design for the Chaser 33 in the '70's. Bayliner bought the molds and made it into the Buccaneer/US 335. I think San Juan had the molds in Washington St. for a short time then was sold to a Korean company after SJ went T.U. I raced one in the hole at Tswassen YC for two seasons. And raced the Bucc in 1980 and lost a rig at Race Passage at Swiftsure. The Korean was far better build but I can't comment on any core deck issues after the fact. The cockpit design from Peterson was never intended to be wheel driven. And in due respect to our fallen designer, Doug, the rudder was very, very heavy-handed. Even more so with the Korean one. A real handful when powered up.

Not necessarily...

Used to be, back in the day, families would actually go off on a week long cruise on their smaller racer/cruisers.  Being able to sleep mom, dad and my 3 kids sure has made my boats (30-35 footers) more useable, and hence, sailed more often.

Used to be, you went off to a race week, or an weekend regatta and slept on your boat.  Did multiple Block Island Race Weeks in the late 70's/early 80s where many of the folks racing were also sleeping aboard.

Used to be even smaller boats did overnight ocean races.  Hence the MORC boats.  Many a Ranger 26, etc were raced overnight.  Need enough sea bunks for 1/2 the crew of so (yeah, we used watch systems and let folks sleep even on races that were "just overnight."

Sad but true is the trend towards "how many couples can it sleep", and how many boats today have no "sea-berths."  Which I think is what paps and the rest of you guys are really trying to say.

That's true but if the hull were 6' longer you have extra build cost, larger engine, fuel costs, haul out costs, etc etc.
Plus to some of us they look fantastic.

Olson 30's are awesome boats. Fast boats, but since we are talking here in CA: the inside is pretty minimalistic. I would buy one if I did not have two kids and a wife to keep somewhat satisfied :) 

There have been a few for sale on the west coast over the last year. I believe there is still one for sale in Santa Cruz, maybe another one in the bay area.

Conveys with a full array of safety equipment consisting of life jackets, flares, first aid gear, waterway charts and reference manuals. Also conveys with Johnson SailMaster 8hp Outboard Long Shaft engine for auxiliary backup power which mounts to a portable aluminum mounting bracket at the transom.

Extensive travel commitments no longer offer time for sailing. The Morgan MKII is a classic 1970 Fiberglass Sailboat. Very sturdy and strong from the days when fiberglass layup was done with robust engineering.

...

Note: I also have in inventory, an additional 2x Westerbeke 4-107 Diesel Engines. Both operational. I collected these engines with spare part provisioning in mind. Willing to sell both of the extra 4-107's spare diesel engines for $700/- each.

Sorry, but if you put an outboard bracket on a boat that size, I can't resist.

How best to keep a Westerbeke running? Two spare Westerbeke's! And an outboard, just in case!

Layups were robust back in the day, mostly because we didn't know how thick they needed to be and resin was cheaper.

Actually, that's a myth. The structural properties of fiberglass were well known and there were several published handbooks on it. Among other things, in the years right after WW2 the US Navy built a series of utility craft, 26'to 55', and tested them pretty much to destruction. This data went into one of the published books specifically for boat building.

One of the results I found interesting is that after a few years of stress & strain, and exposure to the elements, the Navy concluded that fiberglass is not degraded at all by UV or humidity or wide temperature swings etc etc. Of course this test was only over a few years, and I suspect that although they used microscopes, this is not the correct answer. Fiberglass is only ALMOST forever.

But you're right that resin was a lot cheaper

Can you find out if they sold and for how much?

That Hunter ended up selling for a terrifying $18,500. It was very rough inside... luckily someone had pulled the knotmeter so the bilge was only half full of water. Chain locker was completely flooded, well over top of the electric windless. I figured about $35k in materials to get it decent, plus many, many, many hours of work.

The ferro monstrosity started at $200, then $100, and that's the last I heard as I walked away. Nobody, including the auctioneer, expected it to sell, but the guy from Canoe Cove said it gives them legal right to crush it. Among a great many other failings, the dry exhaust was rigid mounted 2" galvanized pipe and ended at the side of the cabin, about 2' from the "helm".

No idea on the Oak Bay boats - you could contact the lawyer in the ad, who would have done the auctioning. Cal 34 does look the best of the bunch, but they sell for so little in good shape anyway, it would be hard to justify.

That looks like a nice old boat, but I'm not supposed to mock any of this at all?

Sorry, but if you put an outboard bracket on a boat that size, I can't resist.

How best to keep a Westerbeke running? Two spare Westerbeke's! And an outboard, just in case!

Layups were robust back in the day, mostly because we didn't know how thick they needed to be and resin was cheaper.

The old Morgans are nice. There must be something else wrong with this one.

Sounds like someone caught auction fever.

Yes, those numbers don't add up even with free labour.
