Might be free...how do you swabs find these adverts?

 

Got to watch out for free stuff on Craig...read about guy who went to get a free sailboat and woke up on cruise ship, which may or may not have been a blessing, but he was in the housekeeping department down near engine room, assigned to washing bed clothes...ugh! I though Shanghai-ing people was outlawed...course he lived in South Texas, next to someone named Cruz...

No, the boats are given full ads elsewhere; I dunno why he didn't put on more detail. Small world etc etc, I know that guy and his boats are NOT free; likely to be in very good shape / well equipped. Probably a good deal but not free!

These are both nice boats...a Mader FD and a modern Rondar 505...the owner (not me) is a nice guy and takes good care of his boats.

Great concept, not very good boats. I looked at them in the early 1990s before buying a Johnson 18 instead. The busted mast and the fact that it's being sold by "Boat Angel" (extra $300 and extra hassle) makes it not worth a 2nd glance IMHO.

I've been sailing a long time and visiting clubs all over. It never ceases to amaze me in all these years how poorly some people take care of what are (were) otherwise nice boats. You see them year after year sitting in the same place in some boat park or in a field or similar place. While some of the postings on this thread show some really nice, well taken care of boats, this one for the Front Runner prompts my comment here. Perhaps for these people they have one of those money trees growing on their property and simply don't care to take care of their possessions!

Well, if you want a Flying Dutchman but you want it cheap rather than good, try this one

 

https://annapolis.cr...5999171206.html

 

1993 FLYING DUTCHMAN 20' Olympic class sailboat w/ many sails, ect. - $800

"1993 Vanguard built Flying Dutchman "project boat". Comes with 14 racing sails, beautiful Sitka spruce center board, rudder, dirty, real nice mast and boom. One of the fastest sailboats period. Needs attention, a reasonably skilled person could replace bulkheads and glass over deck in a week easily. Comes with trailer. 800$ as is. I would be willing to do the work for you if a deal is established."

 

 

Nice aluminum trailer.

http://www.ebay.com/...em=172525791389

Correct. That's a Classic Moth Class, what is called the Mistral design. Extreme V shape, very tippy (the wood mast probably doesn't help), and quite fast. Haven't seen that particular boat at any regattas, nor seen one with a wood mast. Much better mast options out there. Blades on that boat look sketchy. Building the hull is the cheap part, the big cost of those is the sail and rig. It would be a better deal just to start from scratch.

That looks like a pretty good deal for a DIYer. Would be a good basis for an EC frankenboat.

Vanguard's foray into FDs were in the early 80's not 90's. So boat is at least 10 years older than it says. Mark Lindsey finished two Vangard hulls for Mike Loeb and Steve Taylor which had 505style side tanks, Vanguard had some boats finished with wood decks, 2 plies of western red cedar a la Gougeon dogma, but I don't know who did the work. They were attractive boats.
I know this because I was paying atttention to FDs in the early 80's, and bought Vanguard in 1985, and we never built an FD.

Ballenger did the decks on the first few Vanguard FDs. Augie Diaz had one. I am not sure if this is one of those boats, but the spi chute fairing looks the same, as does the deck knees, etc. . It is much earlier than 1993. Mike Loeb used a wooden decked Mader in 1984. That boat still exists.

That's a Ballenger deck;  I fwded it to him.  Must be difficult for you guys to see your hard work rotting away in a field somewhere. 

 

The trailer is worth more than that boat, I'm afraid, but that wouldn't stop an  idiot like me from fixing that boat up.  Let's face it:  The FD is hands down the queen of dinghies.

Needs a new rig, but this thing could be a good deal: http://www.ebay.com/...em=361899895525

s-l1600.jpg

I picked this up. Ended up at $1400 plus $300 in fees. Turns out the rig is fine with a brand new jib and an unused kite. Could use a new main. The hull does have some damage but I have glass, resin and gel cote. The trailer needed a new winch and lights and the boat needs new lines. But all told, it really only needs a couple hundred $$ and a weekend and it will be ready to race.
I am pretty juiced.

next time some East Coast sailor is driving out to So. Cal, just bring me that old Vanguard F.D. I'll re-deck it to be original, then take it up to Elkhorn Composites for some paint.- Buzz can stroll over and see his deck re-buzzed
