Re: Seen This Boat 4 Sale What ya Think???

On the plus side she looks fair with no bondo. You can't see the frames. That speaks of good welding.

First and foremost one would have to look at interior hull finish, that's where they rust.

We looked at a similar Colvin in Florida, that was only 10 gage steel, pretty darn light.

But, all said and done I would think that at best the hull is worth maybe 20% of the finished boat cost.

I'm thinking $10 - $15 thousand more reasonable.

Here is another big steel schooner. More reasonably priced for the level of outfit. FWIW, this also says 10 gage hull, but I don't believe it. Or the displacement.

No. No. No.

It's begging for tubular steel masts.

Set them on the keel so that they can stand (as cantilevers) by themselves. Any rigging is to make it look pretty.

Weld the fittings on the main masts before erection.

First step in not buying this boat would be to consult the designer.

I don't like the stock sailplan.



Always liked the Brigantine rig myself...

So it's been in this field of dreams for 33 years and if the bare hull represents 10% of a finished boat (I've built 3 steel boats, 2 of my own, so I know this is true), then it will sit for many more years to come and a crap load of money.
