  1. My father, though I didn't take it up until nearly 40 years after his death, when I was the age he was when he passed away.
  2. Yeah, great. An obsolete OB you can't get parts for anymore..... And that "dodger" (Storm Top) is a factory option. You can't get them anymore, but that's OK. They reduce the size of the cockpit combing, making it harder to stand up and adjust things. Those plastic trimarans routinely sell for $1,000 - $2,200, and that's with a trailer. $4.6K is insane, but not at all surprising in this $tate. This one sold for $700, and in the same city as that blue one.
  3. 1994 Catalina 22. $9,500. Located in San Mateo, California. OK, this might belong in mocking CL, but only if $9.5K is too much for a 27 year-old -22. IDK what they're worth. Not sure why the seller put teak on the cockpit floor, but it's a nice looking boat. It looks very clean and well maintained, and it has the added advantage that they're still being produced. If I weren't so intimidated by the idea of owning a boat that lives in saltwater, full-time, and the price turned out to be reasonable, I might go give it a closer look. https://sfbay.craigslist.org/pen/
  4. $4,600?! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! https://monterey.craigslist.org/boa/d/monterey-2001-windrider-16/7301019012.html
  5. What the hell is this supposed to be?? $25,000 is a lot of money for a boat you can't see in the picture. https://sfbay.craigslist.org/eby/boa/d/oakland-46-ft-sailboat/7303819288.html
  6. So let me get this straight. I find a slip, and I become a half owner of this "classic" boat? How 'bout a pic of what it looks like now that it was dismasted? Did the mast take anything out, like the cabin, on its way down? Did it yank anything out of the deck as it fell? And what exactly are the "mechanical issues" the 39 year old engine is suffering? There's no mention of who is supposed to pay for the slip or repairs, and it's been lived on for three years. Great. Oh, but wait. It was once owned by Buddy "Epsen" (Ebsen) of the Beverly Hillbillies.
  7. Well yes, sometimes they do suck, but sometimes they don't. It never ceases to surprise me when I find they're the cheapest game in town, but I take advantage of it when I do.
  8. The company was originally called "West Coast Ropes" and was located in Palo Alto, Ca. My dad shopped there when I was little. I still find some decent deals at WM. They had the best price I could find on my Riptide-45.
  9. Moffett Field? A few years back, I'd park my "office" right next to that hanger.
  10. I just checked Google Maps for mine, but the picture is at least 3 years old, and the boat wasn't there back then.
