Found it... tiny little thing. If I were a sail guy, knowing the quality of mil-spec, I would be all over this. I bet Maryland I pretty this time of year.

Wonder what the final bids will be.

In the listing, doesn't CGA refer to Coast Guard Academy? Is that where they were sailed after being replaced by the Naval Academy? Just a guess.

I have been to the Naval Station Annapolis to work on Officers Boats.

I have always wondered why they don't have the enlisted men work on their stuff as a side job.

I have seen up close and personal some of these "deals"........They are stripped of anything useful....usually.

Maybe you saved me. But the auction isn't closed until manana at 5pm.

I have a bit of a fever. Aspirin doesn't help. Scotch actually increases it. I've been thinking about these Academy sloops for 3 days, and dreaming of them at nite. However, not knowing what will be left on them, and the cost of refitting them likely being more than the auction price, and the fact that they are on the right coast away from my home, and not being able to inspect them b4 tossing what will prolly end up being 25-30k at a lovely pig in a poke. Plus, maintenance on these would be nearly double of my contemplated 34-41 footer heretofore. Plus, I'm convinced that we are in for another round of debt-destruction/deflation and boats will be even cheaper in the next 6-12 months.





And last but not ... the head



I guess, I'll pass as a mostly singlehander with a limited budget, but... I bet they would be sweet swimmers and are generally well-built.

Current issue of Latts+Atts (I think?) features a "yachted -up" Luders 44 Navy yawl. Issue is available free online.

Just so you can see where you can go with one...

I think they went for between 27k - 31k.

Thanks!...I guessed they would go around 40K...Not seeing them...I think they were a very good deal for what they went for...for less then 80 to 100K 3 people are going to have some very decked out sea worthy boats.
