1984 Camper & Nicholson 58 Ketch. I hate to say how much we have into this Hurricane IVAN damaged boat. We retire in the spring and move aboard. No house, no cars, no job. Say HI if you see ROXY Traverse City, Mi. See you on the St Lawrence.

Re: Got a plastic classic?

I am so excited for this thread, and also for the new social group for us slightly twisted lovers of the old plastic classics.

One of our favorite boats was our 24' Bristol Sailstar, Sojourner (the first). She was our second renovation, done between 1998-2000, spent way too much and enjoyed every minute of it. She is currently on her third owner since we sold her (for way to little) in 2002. We hear she is still going strong. She has the same name and I think she is berthed now in Marina Del Rey if anyone happens to come across her. I will post some before and after pictures here and also in the social group site.

Projects done (not an exhaustive list):
  • Replacing numerous areas of rotted balsa deck
  • Installing outboard chainplates
  • Removing the old fixed ports, glassing in the cabin sides, and installing stainless steel opening ports
  • New bow and stern pulpits
  • Added stanchions and lifelines
  • All new standing and running rigging
  • New sails
  • New non-skid (fine silica sand)
  • Hull and deck paint
  • Removing the old marine head and replacing with porta potty (so it could be moved out into the cabin at night while the vee-berth was in use)
  • Replacing most of the interior cabinetry with teak faced ply
  • Built seat backs for the salon settees that had storage behind
  • A custom built table with mounting pole that could be used either in the cabin or the cockpit
  • Vinyl laminate flooring over the old cockpit sole
  • Tile counter tops
  • A new companionway ladder
  • Fynspray water pump and new Vetus flexible water tank
  • New traveler across the cockpit seats in the stern
  • New hull lining carpet in the Interior
  • New cushions and curtains
  • Oil lamp with reflective mirrors behind

Before:



The bow pulpit had been stove in and someone had just put a bunch of goop around it.













During:

Deck Repairs









Replacing the old fixed ports











We lived in a small condo in at the time and I did the majority of the woodwork on my patio. I can only imagine that my neighbors were thrilled. My grandson's playroom served as storage for the plywood. You do what you have to do, right?







The outboard chainplates.



The finished boat.























Maybe some wouldn't see the sense in spending so much time and $$$ restoring an old 24' boat, but we were happy to give her another life, and in some ways she gave just as much to us.

Check out this site. Know the chap and he has since sold the boat but he did do a great job. Lovely liveaboard. It was in the Caribbean.

Some of Bruce Van Sant's sailboats

Re: Got a plastic classic?

Nicholson 58, what a HUGE project that was, and you did such a beautiful job. Do yourself a favor, don't ever try and figure out what it cost you. I have been keeping track of everything we are spending on our Cape Dory 33 and I'm thinking about stopping because after a point you really just don't want to know.


Gorgeous boat, I hope I come across her someday.

Re: Got a plastic classic?

If you widen the rules slightly I am in. 1976 Checkstone 32 built to the British junior offshore racing rules which where new at the time. She was built as the first of a production series, to exhibit at the 76 London boat show but they got no orders so she is the only one. So qualifies in all respects but one, she is wood!

I've kept an EXCEL sheet on everything. The admiral hasn't seen it.

Probably best you keep it that way. I have everything in Quicken so I know down to the dollar, maybe give or take a few fasteners we've paid cash for.

I don't tell Lance either because, quite honestly, it's hard to see someone you love in pain.

Love the old C&C's. We raced against many on Lake Erie in the 70-80s. I think it was Witchdoctor C&C 38 that gave us fits - but the owner was on the ratings committee.

Were the gimbaled lanterns existing or did you add them? I may need to find a set. Very nice.
