  1. Lucky you, there are many salvage boats better than that. Now back to your interest.
  2. I would say burn it but it it so close the house. But seeing as it is concrete grind it up for driveway gravel?
  3. I like that plan, need to get to work on that myself.
  4. Will say you need to replace the cutlass bearing also. You know just to be on the safe side.
  5. "ungainly to wrangle" I like it got her number? Full batten's everyday. I bet you will get few more years out of the main, so much easier to handle. You should get a few more years cost a bit more. I think it is worth it had both.
  6. Boat is on a fresh water lake, the trailer should be good. Sorry 3 south west of me. Yes a mix of good rednecks red and blue.
  7. Nice, too nice I bet they lost money on all of them. Good looking yacht.
  8. Went in a power boat dealer in Newburg, MD today looking for a part. I was thinking he was going out of business, no he sold every boat he had, never before. The place was empty except for a happy owner and some mechanics. Has boats on back order.
  9. A pic taken by a dock neighbor of a storm. I plucked it off Facebook. Like many a work in progress we are getting there. Boat name Get"In By
  10. Take a look at a Catalina 34, most seems to be shoal draft wing keel. There are deep draft that may put it n more of a race boat mode. Nice interior, huge head as most Catalina she a wide girl. The wing may get you in some places you would not go. Catalina brings a company still in business, a great owners community. The open transom begins in 90's is in your price range. Will treat you better than a similar Hunter.
  11. I have been lucky much of my life, no I have not sailed on one. Get the C22 better yet S2 6.9.
  12. What a train wreck, the things you can not unsee. Waterline in the stern has to be above the boot stripe.
  13. No problem Alex I think this more about the people that had no intention of leaving the VI's. They are now not welcome guest. As they describe getting supplies is always more difficult there, it just got harder. Now moving boats with limited crew and limited re guard for conditions. Using a calendar is never a recommended guide to moving a boat. More of the impact of the Chinese Bat Soup Flu Pandemic!
