Re: Singlehand an Ingrid 38 Cutter?

You have a good point, Celestial, but when you look at the relative purchase price, even though I would have loved to have a Valiant, it was a no go back in the day.
I've never sailed on one but she sure is an attractive looking vessel above and below deck. Very well built and an excellent rep... Capt Phil

Yes...there is always the cost factor with us working stiffs...

Re: Singlehand an Ingrid 38 Cutter?

Just before you guys think I am the beemer crowd- I bought mine as a fixer upper for the average price of many Ingrids. You just have to scavage a lot....

Re: Singlehand an Ingrid 38 Cutter?

Don't think I owned a car for the first few years I had my Ingrid... didn't need one as I would just tie to the dock where the fishboat or towboat left from that I was working on. When we returned to port, I just moved from my work boat to my home afloat.
Probably can't do that anymore... they were very good times, uncomplicated(no rules), cheap and everyday was an adventure!
What I remember most is the camaraderie and friendship we all had working and living on the water. It was a very small and unique group in those days. We all cared about each other and stayed connected even though we might not see each other for weeks at a time if the salmon or herring were running or we were away on a tow.
No computers, cell phones, GPS or 24 hour news cycle... I think we have regressed! Capt Phil

Re: Singlehand an Ingrid 38 Cutter?

I remember when it was $105 a month to tie my 42 footer dockside next to the pier with water and electric hookups. (in Hawaii)
Is there anywhere that cheap anymore?

Most "nice harbors" are that much for two nights!

Re: Singlehand an Ingrid 38 Cutter?

I singlehanded my Ingrid all over the San Juan Islands and then to La Paz Mexico, I was 62/63 at the time. I broke everything on the boat and had the adventure of a lifetime. My Ingrid was cutter rigged and had a monitor wind vane. I say for it.
