Re: LeComte NE 38 for sale - Beautiful, Elegant and Seaworthy cruising sailboat

I actually really like watching rehab boat pages on youtube. My favorites are Sail Life, Mads the owner is a really cool guy from Denmark, and also Boatworks Today, the only two I support. They are both well done, and very informational.


Truth be told, I am really looking forward to being out on the water, and just to see people's reactions once again. She is a beautiful boat. People used to just stop by the dock to ask about her, C-50's are so rare to see that most people have no idea what it is. I am a big proponent of restoring, and hope to be a great ambassador of older boats being brought back. Too often I see older boats going unloved. I can understand the cost benefit analysis of putting too much money into something that will never recoup the investment. But after all, it's a boat, what should I or anyone expect.

SV Siren,

Not sure where/how or what system but I got a message from you based on further comments I made to your website - appreciating your efforts to restore the Bill Tripp Jr. Columbia 50. Now I cannot seem to find that last message or figure out an easy or direct way to email.

Please resent that last one - my message included a bravo that you were doing this with the support of your wife.

What is your overall estimated time frame for getting Siren back in the water and sailing?

Best wishes,

I just sent my last reply via email, I just cut and pasted it...so the format is a bit wonky...

My time frame is an optimistic two years from this coming summer...
