Which Cookson 12 would you buy?

If the boat requires a paint job to remove the artwork, that's 25k off the price.

It must be fascinating to live in the fantasy world that you do.

What you talking about....

If someone is selling a boat on the condition that the artwork is non-transferable and it was to cost 25k as LB suggests (I am 100% agreeing with sportscar that it's vinyl) to repaint, then any buyer with half a brain would go into the negotiations using that as a bargaining chip.

If only you were looking for a SO40 when I was selling my boat.

Unlikely to need a repaint. Artwork is probably a vinyl stick on job, easily removed.

And if it’s not it will be 25k.  Wrapping looks great (for a year or two) as long as it never touches anything harder than water.

I think we’re talking about just removing the logo on the bow, which is probably just vinyl?? And just leave the base colour.

It’s seems it’s a full wrap anyway.......now I’ve bothered to read the ad.  I wonder what condition the paint is underneath??

Only if I’ve gone completely and utterly fucking insane, I can think of way better ways to waste money than owning a boat. :P

Have you considered Golf? You might enjoy it more because with golf the more you try the better you get at it.

Which one was Grace O'Malley originally?

Ex Pazzaz, Ex Siena IV, Ex ... not sure.  I think it may have been the Salthouse-built one

How long ago did Cookson go belly up?

They didn't, Mick Cookson simply closed the doors when he retired.

Always check SA first...

You're referring to Cookson Boatbuilders NZ I'm guessing?  The doors are shut there, so your calls and emails will continue to go unanswered.  Mick Cookson I believe was desperate to retire, and nobody wanted to take on the gamble, despite their great reputation.

Great boat builder.  Only spoke with him a few times about my boat, but a great, helpful guy.  Very glad that I owned a Cookson-built boat.  Two decades of taking everything we could throw at it without out a flinch, and - unless we screwed up - always put us at the pointy end of the fleet.

Good designs that are well built and well loved never die.
