Muscongus, thanks for the good report on Boat Angel. I see their boats listed all the time but had never bid on one. I have bought 2 other boats on ebay though and had good results.
We rebuilt our B-24 from stem to stern. Literally rebuilt all the interior
ply, moved the chainplates outboard
, built backrests for the settees in the main salon
(we had the traditional model), built shelving into the galley
cabinets, installed a Fynspray pump, replaced the fixed ports
with stainless steel
opening ones, all new interior cushions
, new Pergo on the floor, custom built table that could be used in the salon
or the cockpit
, teak companionway
ladder, put in a traveler across the back of the cockpit
and an tillerpilot, new pain, new non-skid, new stern pulpit, double lifelines
, new standing and running rigging
, new sails, sailcovers.... somebody stop me. I could go on and on. The guy who bought her from us has had her for sale
for years. He never removed the posting
from sailboatlistings.com so if you would like to take a look she's at 1970 Bristol 24' Corsair sailboat for sale in California
We live in Baltimore
now. If we still lived in San Diego
I probably would have bought her back by now. But he was asking too much, (due to lack of care...the last few times we visited CA we saw her hanging on a mooring
in Mission Bay covered with bird crap and tattered tarps) plus the cost of shipping
. If we found another we would probably do the same thing again.
We actually lived aboard her for almost a year.
Well, I better stop now. I am getting all weepy. Enjoy your wonderful boat.
