We have the Ugly Boat Admiration Society thread but, I thought a little more focus on the source and a wider focus on boat(y) stuff might entertain.  The drawback of this thread is the pictures will eventually go away as the ads die.

 

Here's a piece of gold.

 

 

Bruce Anchor 15 lbs. - $25 (Gig Harbor)
3E83Ka3N15Ne5Kc5H9d4eeb5ffe329be71045.jp3K63Ic3H75Lb5E35Mbd4e34dfc8ebf9f21034.jp
3E83Ka3N15Ne5Kc5H9d4eeb5ffe329be71045.jp
I salvaged this anchor. It's a Bruce style and weighs 15 or 20 lbs. is my guess. Comes with a shot of chain. $25

 

Anyone need an anchor?  It's cheap.

There are more than $25 in those nice shiny SS shackles! Looks like three of them too, such a deal...

The chain doesn't look too bad...90 feet of chain would fetch $25, the shackles would be a bonus.

 

 

Now you've set the challenge, I'm sure craigslist and their ilk will be pillaged for crap like this.

That's a Seaborn designed Sierra 26, maybe better known as a Rawson 26. Maybe only known as a Rawson 26.. That is a very good sailing boat.

A few years back there was a $100 boat offered near here. It was a wooden wreck in someone's back yard held up with a number of Brownell stands in decent condition. I thought of taking a few lengths of wood over, paying the $100, propping up the boat and taking the stands.

 

I thought better of it when i remembered an earlier experience I had had clearing out my mother's house. A book buyer came by and after looking over the books offered me $500 for them. My response was to be clear that I wanted a price on taking all the books out of the house. He came back with $300 and we had a fair deal.

It looks like a rounded version of a Thunderbird. He had quite a style. I like them, I think the Tbird is a great boat.

Back in the day there was a Sierra 26 that raced out of Tacoma which consistently spanked everyone in her class.  Can't remeber her name though.

This baby hits the trifecta- deserves to be in this thread, the cool boat thread and the ugly thread as well. Motor is only missing a piston (I guess that means "runs good"). I assume the tires go with it. $1,100 asked but I'll bet will go for less.

I could swear that, on a boat hunting trip back in 2010, we might have climbed up a ladder and looked at this thing.  It was on the hard, in a yard, in Everett.

 

It was...odd.  All around, odd.

Yep, the only conditions where they could barely beat a T-bird was the real light stuff and zephyrs.

 

There was one in Kingston back in the 70's when I had my T-bird there.

 

If I remember correctly they were a tad narrower then the T-bird, by about 6".

There was a boat like this in our beer can fleet circa 1985. It sailed OK, but it sure did look odd from some angles.

Maybe this is an early attempt at the scow-bow that was recently seen in the minis?

Not mocking this one.  

 

Needs an engine but... $6,000?  Not bad looking from the pics either.

1946 Ed Monk Sr. Sailboat - $6500 (Tacoma)
 
3K83Gf3H35I45Kc5Hed51175d28256b09108d.jp
DEAL FELL THROUGH SO BACK ON MARKET!

Now offering as is for $6000 Firm. Lease is transferable at TYEE. The motor that no longer works, is an Atomic 4 Diesel 16hp. 

I have it stored down at Tyee Marina in Tacoma. Family/work issues prevent me from keeping this boat. So unfortunately I will be selling ASAP. Serious inquiries only. Way too many tire kickers and I don't have the time to show you just because your curious... So please be a serious buyer. I'd rather spend more time sending photos as apposed to running down to Tacoma to show someone who isn't ready to purchase. 

This boat needs some minor work to the exterior, but nothing major that I can see. It's a beautiful boat looking for the right owner. I've had several people check out the motor and it definitely needs to be replaced. I just have not had time to dedicate myself to change it out or give this wood boat the attention in needs. The longer a wood boat sits, the more work it will eventually need. 

Built in Mid 40s in Seattle of stout cedar on oak frames. Moonsail SV. 
Beam 9ft , draft 4ft, 7 tons displacement, 4000 lb. ballast, cast iron wood stove, hand carvings and inlay wood work throughout. 6+ lanterns, a lot of character. 3 sails (main and two jibs - decent shape). 
5'9" head room in cabin
The boat is wired for shore power, however I do not have much in the way of electronics. A few cabin lights, am/fm radio, older CB, and electric bilge pump. It also has a depth finder. 

Not too many of these boats left in this good of shape. 
Well known around the Puget Sound. 
On the cover of "Cruising the San Juan Islands" -- Bruce Calhoun 
New stainless steel rudder -- Spring 2010 
New zincs -- February 2012
Bottom Paint -- Spring 2010 
Stuffing Box Repacked- Spring 2010

I do not have a current survey on the boat. More pictures available upon request. Photos are from boat this last summer (2012).

Due to the overwhelming number of e-mails I received last go-around I will respond and show in order as I receive them. Only seems fair. 

Key words: antique, sail, sailboat, cutter, live-aboard, ed monk sr., diesel,

The 25HP is analogous to a trolling motor.   I had a 19' aluminum boat w/a 75HP and 10HP evinrude - I used the 10HP when I wanted to troll at lower speeds that were prone to fouling plugs when running the bigger engine under load at such a low RPM.

Mock me if you like, but the pic you showed is a Comet; if you go to the ad you'll see the BlackJack Skiff is a pretty cool boat. Personally I would not give $2500 for it in the shape it's in, but looks worth restoring to somebody.

 

They want $200 for the Comet and that's also too much IMHO.

 

They also have 2 Wianno Seniors and those are boats which should not be mocked, they sit about a half-notch below Herreshoff S-Boats in the pantheon of classics.

I found said ad because I was researching Wiannos. You can get a used Wianno for $13,900 with shiny varnish from Crosby. I love wooden boats but in this day and age anyone who tries to charge real money for woodenboats that are "unrestored, need work, do not float, engines have not run, no trailers, need more than paint and varnish"  and further goes on "They will have a good investment return IF the labor is done by careful weekend restorers. Great projects to learn about boatbuilding and get a little return for your work!" is asking for it.

 

 

Unlike, say, the guy who was giving away the wooden boat in a Seattle a couple years ago who was willing to pay someone to take the boat away if they'd do it before the week was over and make sure to tell his wife it was gone.

So basically, for $2500, you only get to buy the middle of the boat?

"investment" and "boat" should not be used in the same sentence. And I would prefer to not turn over a Wianno to somebody who is a rank beginner with classic boats. Why is Congress arguing about stupid shit like health care when we have this problem going on?!?

PLENTY of CL ads with old poweboats that have been sitting for DECADES with Goddamn TREES growing in them for "$1,000 OBO" :rolleyes:

Also the ever-popular "no title but have bill of sale". Good luck ever getting a legal set of numbers. "Ideal for crabbing" = totally destroyed interior. Engine would run except for this $5 part I am too lazy to go buy and who cares if it would triple the value of the engine. Suspicious minds would think there was more wrong than that ;)

 

True CL story - I go to see a 15 HP Evinrude. It starts and runs great. The sellers tell me they always run the gas out to avoid carb issues so we do that before I hand over the cash and take it home. So far so good and the engine is a great engine :) It gets to be an even better engine after I buy a new kill switch because you CAN'T TURN IT OFF :angry:

When I bought my Capri 22, it came with a 4-stroke OB that was too powerful and too heavy for the boat. It was winterized. I advertised it for sale, and a prospective buy showed up. He said he'd take it, if he could see it run. We set it up in an old garbage can (the galvanized kind. remember them?), and got it started without too much problem. However there was no tell-tale dribble of water from the cooling system. I was really surprised and very happy when the guy said he'd take it anyway.

"Must bring your only trailer"

That lets me out, I have more than one trailer

:huh:

 

But I do wonder what happens with these things. Does anybody who owns a roadworthy trailer need to buy a clapped-out momo that was a low-end boat when it was new? I would think anybody with the the wherewithall to undertake a project like this would already have a better prospect that he/she was already working on

 

God knows -I- am a sucker for homeless derelicts but I have plenty of old boats to work on now

Our 25 horse Evinrude was stolen a couple years ago.  One of the nice things about the engine was oil injection, when it worked.  It gave up the ghost so I bypassed the cut out switch and disconnected the pump till I had a chance to have it fixed.  In the mean time I was running it with mixed gasoline, of course the thieves didn't know this.  I wonder what the buyer of the hot engine thought when it froze up?  You know it ended up on FleeBay or Craig's Fleece, the worlds largest fences.

We have occasional "CraigsListWars" when people call out individuals running scams. One I *almost* fell for was a guy selling *his* outboard. He had a hell of a time starting it and it pumped no water despite being used daily on his boat :rolleyes:  I eventually figured out he was a garage-sale scanvenger and knew almost nothing about the engines he was selling.

Trying to restore that boat would be insane but it might be a good candidate for a Tim Lackey style conversion to an open day boat. It's a good looking hull - take a wrecking bar and big hammer inside and clean it out, cut the house off etc.

 

For someone with the wherewithal, it could make a very nice & unique boat for cheap + a lot of work - offer $200 and start the demolition. :D

 

If you don't know about Lackey, check out Lackeysailing.com - the daysailer project.

How can someone seriously expect $3000 for that piece of flotsam?

Overly proud of their work?

 

I've used this analogy before and, though it is a little crude and harsh, I think it applies.

 

Babies don't know better.  They are proud of themselves for many reasons but lack the context to determine what is good, and what is not.  They will happily sit in the corner, fill their diaper, reach inside and start painting the walls, maybe even themselves with their chosen medium.  If they spy you looking at them they will *beam with pride*, knowing not what they do.

 

I think it's sometimes the same with personal projects.  I'm not saying they are necessarily shit but, sometimes our hearts are too close to our projects to see them honestly.

I love the "all receipts" ads.

1979 Shamrock 20 worth maybe $6000 with:

new gps

new fishfinder

new radar

new batteries

new canvas

new engine

new exhaust hose

new seacocks

new cushions

new paint

new running lights

 

So OBVIOUSLY the price is $6,000 + the new retail cost of all that equipment :rolleyes:

The interior and "bad diesel" pics look worse.

 

I think he might have better luck if he offers people $500 to take it.

 

Nothing that a cup of gasoline and a match couldn't cure.

Excellent opportunity for individual owner or syndicate of 3 for $5,000 each. Asking $12,000.

 

A syndicate of math-challenged individuals maybe :huh:

Also note the engine appears to rely on gravity to stay in place! :o

 

Then there is this one:

workboat engine - $6000 (taylors island, md)

workboat engine. 210 cummings diesel less than 1200 hours shaft wheel etc in the water now. best offer

 

If the ENGINE is in the water I'll be paying more like $60. Mayve they mean in a boat????

I like how the two forward stands aren't chained together and the one to support the bow is still waiting to be placed!

Well, at least the front is bolted down...

This is the most alarming boat in the thread so far.

Here's a gem that has been running on Seattle CL for several years. Only $4500 - such a deal! It looks like it suffered a propane explosion.
