25. I've just sanded the bottom and applied Pettit Horizons bottomkote. Brightwork is refinished. I've had the boat 10+ years and have made many good trips to Lake Superior
and Lake Pepin, both singlehanded and with friends aboard. I put new tires on the tandem trailer when I got it. Some details:
. I replaced the hinge pin and cable shortly after I got it. (The old ones turned out to be in fine condition)
Main sail in good condition with 3 reef points. Working 110 jib
. Heavy weather jib
. 150 Jenny. 150 lightweight drifter (Drifter is two years old and the best thing I added, it will move the boat in 2 knots wind)
and standing rigging
10 sailing hours ago. The running rigging
is also new.
Pioneer stereo with CD.
Standard Horizons VHF
with command mike in cockpit
Pop-top (not for use when sailing) which allows 6 feet of headroom
in the cabin
. This has a heavy vinyl cover with windows and there is also a canvas
It had/has a Princess alcohol cook stove. I picked up a non-pressurized two-burner stove, (Origo-type) I got along fine with the Princess but some people have problems with them flaring up. Both stoves included.
Inside teak in excellent condition
9.9 Johnson 2 stroke
with very few hours. New motor
mount that would support 4 stroke
I pull it with a very old 4 wheel
drive F150 at 55 mph and it trailers very well. Tongue extension makes ramp launching easy.
Alone it takes me less than an hour to set up the mast
and launch and about the same to retrieve it. It is a very stiff sailing boat, we've had it out on Superior in 25+ knot
winds. I'm crazy to be selling it but I have spent the last 11 years rebuilding a 38 foot ferro
and don't really need two boats.
I'm asking $8500.
