Probably going to the scrap pile, the great lakes, or will become home to some liveaboards in Sausalito! Bulldoze and build new is the only way these days.Third hand news is that the buyer bought the boat for the slip, so he can dock his 90 ft power boat in Santa Barbara.
Stranger things happen at sea.
That'd be a terrible shame. Still a lotta life in that boat.Probably going to the scrap pile,
The Cave is like new. In pristine condition.......Maybe a youtuber can buy it and give it the same treatment Duracell is getting now.

So anything thin and long is now called a sled?Santa Cruz boats and their like were the first boats to be refered to as sleds, all others came later
The 70's and their predecessors (to some degree) the 50's were designed with the downwind sleigh ride of a race, Transpac, in mind. Hence the moniker Sled.I'm curious, what do Americans define as being a sled. To me, a sled is a TP52, a Class 40, a Cape 31, basically a wide planing boat that has lots of power.
People here seem to denote older and narrow boats that are only fast deep downwind when assisted by waves. For instance, how is a Santa Cruz 70 a sled?
