Yeah, she was built or used as a long-liner for a while, but got no more details on that.

RIP big ugly boat, nobody will make fun of you anymore...

For more pics, go to my photo gallery.

Also, the previous picture shows way to big on my screen. Any clever IT guy or moderator that knows how to right-size the pic? (It shows correct size in my photo gallery, but way out of proportion on this thread)

A bit of thread-creep going on here. Meh thinks this thread was about the 50' Tyler I am selling, NOT my neigbors big ugly ex-boat...

Glass slipper 50

I own the sister ship to this Van de Stadt 49. My boat is the one in the old photo. Did anyone buy this one that needs TLC? If they did please have them contact me if they would like original blue prints, photos of the original interior or cockpit. My boat is in good original condition and if I can be of any help to the person who bought this project then drop me a line.

My Boat was named Glass Slipper but the name was changed in the mid 1960's to Cinderella. I had heard that they built a few but this is the first other one I have ever seen.

I sold the boat to a Frencman who paid cash.

Not sure I got his address or even email information.

He loaded the boat on a flat-bed trailer and planned to truck it out in the country side and fix it up.

He was a welder or mechanic by trade and had his own shop.

That is about all the information I have on the sale of the Glass Slipper, sorry.

Just curious, but how does a 50 foot fiberglas sloop mutate into a crunched up ferrocement boat? The ad in the first post is for a glas boat not ferro.

Looking at the photo of the munchage, that also shows why I'd never buy a ferrocement boat without knowing how it was built. I see very little steel rod and a whole lot of chicken wire fencing. No wonder it was so fragile. Later designs started using welded wire mesh instead of chicken coop material and are a lot stronger. But unless you know whats inside, you may as well figure its a floating chicken coop. Very crunchable.
