Hey folks,

Here's another Cal 40 in need of some love. The boat was in Puerto Rico until 2006, then was sailed to Maine. It's been on the hard since then. According to the owner, it "needs a lot of work" to the hull, deck, and bulkheads. Apparently, it fell on its side during Hurricane Hugo, and the hull repair was second rate, at least cosmetically. There are also blisters below the waterline.

The good news is that is has a low hour 40 hp Yanmar diesel, a new, tapered Forespar mast (also post Hugo), and a bunch of new hardware. Also, the I-beam in the mast step has already been replaced, so that's a plus.

For $8k, it's a steal for someone who can do (or have done) glasswork on the solid core hull, and plywood cored decks.

I know bunch of us east coasters were lamenting that Cal 40 in Seattle being on the wrong coast. Now's the chance.

Cue B.V. for some pro-Cal 40 comments.
