    If I were King of the World, one of the first things I would do is to make sure that projects such as this had adequate financial backing and a completion bond to ensure that such wastes of resources, and their ultimate cost to the community, would be minimized.

    But then we'd have less to mock on this thread.

    $2500 CAN for a Santa Cruz 27 with a rockin paint job and a trailer? That's a steal unless it has real issues. Or he dropped a zero...

    So I bought her. No real issues, other than a easily repairable crack from sitting on the trailer for so long, and it all needs re-assembling or bits replacing - she's not been in the water for a long, long time. Needs a couple of new tyres for the trailer, and probably the bearings done before I can haul her out of their garden :)

    Even dug out a reaching strut for it. There's also a ton of very vintage sails, I'm hoping the blooper is usable for a bit of a laugh too.

    Hopefully we'll be racing on her before the end of the summer.

  4. Thinking about acquiring the above boat for some local PHRF racing. Anyone have any background info on this particular one? I think it was called Ghost Rider at one point when it was in the Okanagon, seen an old blogspot site from 2009/2010 but nothing since. Known to be soaked core, keel problems etc - any information is welcome. Thanks in advance.
