  11. Speaking of FD's, I wonder what became of this project? The web site link now goes to something Chinese..
  12. right!?? People come up with some strange things..... I am not sure if the fact this is a Finn is registering.
  13. I posted this on Craigslist finds but wanted to also post here. Wooden Finn in Punta Gorda, Florida. Not much info other than built in the Netherlands by C. Vial. This boat has been posted on the wooden Finn FB page.

  14. A wooden Finn (built in Netherlands by C. Vial) in Punta Gorda, Florida on FB marketplace. I contacted the seller and she inherited the boat and needs to find a new home ASAP. Wooden mast is broken. No sail. I would really like to take this on but presently no room at the Inn for another wooden boat. https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/911921952692725/?ref=browse_tab&referral_code=undefined
  15. Just in case someone doesn't "do" FB - at $700 that could be quite a deal
