dangit, missed one.

Saw an ad for a '80 Flicka, located here in this country. Wrote the contact an email several days back, and while waiting for an answer, found the boat in a shipyard and took a look...didnt look too bad. kinda like a ship in a bottle without the bottle....needs some brightwork, paint, etc.

Got pretty excited, as $ 20K was the asking price and that fit right in...read up on Flickas, etc.

Oh shoot. Got email this morning....boat sold.

Hard to find boats for sale already in the country. Well, keep on digging, I guess.

Hobie is looking better and better, though.

There was one last year in Florida that went eventually for $35k talk about bargain. However, the later 37ft Flicka is the better boat as they added sugar scoops, and it improves water flow.

I thought the 37 had a canoe stern?

If I remember right the Flicka is a small boat, 20 feet? Most of the production ones were built by Pacific Seacraft. It was a Bruce Bingham design. The 37 is a Crealock design and they call it the Pacific Seacraft 37, yawl and sloop and yes, it does have a canoe stern.

Patience young man, patience.

If you are patient something will come up.
Keep your ear to the ground, your eye on the ball and your nose to the grindstone. Being flexible helps. Some of us even consider steel if there is not too much rust.
There may not be many boats for sale in your neck of the woods but if they are the owners will be very keen to talk to you. As a local buyer you have the high ground.
It took me three years to find my boat.

Depends which Flicka we are talking about. I assumed it was a Woods design (cruising version of the racing Banshee)
