In Topic: Falcon, Tripp/Goetz 50 on Craigslist

I think most people here who have ever owned a boat probably have a ball park idea of what it would cost to bring this thing back. No doubt that buying something in better shape with better sails is the smarter option here but the nature of the project has intrigued me and I hope whoever is working on this thing gets it back and going and I (and others probably) would love to hear out the project is going.


So much bitterness here these days...

The point on the cost of sails is kind of a wash in my opinion. The cost for sails for a 50' race boat are what they are. If you're basing your decisions on the costs of sails, then you shouldn't be considering the boat in the first place. I'm curious more on what will/did it take to bring the rest of the boat back (hull, deck, hardware, electronics, mechanicals). You know, the stuff you don't usually replace every 3 or so years.

I took a look at this boat when it was listed as well and I would be curious to know what was able to be salvaged and what ended up needing replacing.  (Engine, instruments, rigging, sails)  The broker also told me it looked like there was a sleave on the mast from a previous break.  Is that true?
