My max would have been $6,300 to snipe all the other bids with 10 seconds to go. That would be 10% of the average 24 of that time period.

Not sure if this goes here, or in the “Mocking” thread. Must be a story behind this one.

Wow. That is.... ummm.... something. Its like like a wide open canoe inside with sette's stretching for 80 feet. It is beautiful and yet, odd.

Pretty certain that boat was built in Long Beach (or somewhere around there). Many design/build problems to achieve that double row of windows & still have adequate rigidity to the cabinhouse.
 

If one were of the sort to be after a Wylo, and after a cambered Junk Rig, this well equipped beauty has popped up in the UK for an eye-poppingly reasonable price.

Serendipity figures: after spending eight months relentlessly dredging the market bottom for absolute shit at outrageous prices, and going so far as to price out fabricating a Wylo hull locally (after seeing none for sale since Iron Bark, in 2019) - this appears right before I return to work until spring on a strict contract, and while my passport is stuck in processing limbo. :rolleyes:

Tempting, relatively close also.

I had one out here in Midland for some years. We had to trailer it 90 miles to the nearest sailable lake. It was easier to fly east and sail the Hinckley. I gave it away to a nice young guy from the DFW area who wanted to teach his beautiful wife and their kids how to sail.

I am contributing this mostly because I did not know there was a pilot house version of a V40. Overall it looks to be a reasonably well sorted old boat and a good PNW cruiser. The exterior wood looks to be in bad shape, but the price seems OK. I especially like the full size binnacle compass in the v berth.

yup, if the time was right, I would buy that. Add about 10k of electronics, get rid of as much deck teak as possible (go stainless where possible). Relatively easy to freshen.

Not craiglist but for someone looking for a small boat that will sail well, this appears to be a bargain

This looks too well done to put in the Mocking thread but it was a close call - had a newspaper article about how old & unfinished it was - 20 years ago - and here it is still unfinished.

But it is 92% complete.

Sort of sad. Most of the work looks decent. Shame about the galvanized fastening, but that was probably the spec for the boat.

Another dream down the drain...
Maybe not, building it might have been a big part of the dream.

I think I've got one more boat build left in me and if it never got finished - shrug. Problem for my executors. Meanwhile we sail the current one which, after the last lot of upgrades, is pretty well sorted. Hence my starting to think about building another one... I get bored without long-running projects to occupy me.
