Re: Help identifying this boat.

I don't see any state registration. Is this a documented vessel ? You might have difficulty with getting clear title.

Re: Help identifying this boat.

The square sticker on the bow is a state registration sticker. Chances are it is a few years old.

Re: Help identifying this boat.

Interesting...

Teak decks, symmetrical spinnaker, double lifelines, inboard with folding prop, lichens growing on the transom apparently, tiller...

I am guessing an old 1/2 tonner or 3/4 tonner from England. 1977. Perhaps a Ron Holland design.

Please let us know what you find out.

Looks like the last time it was registered was in 2000.

Good luck with your decision.
Yes, i want to figure out the year and model before i get into it so i have a rough estimate of a starting budget.

Sounds as though you are smitten with an idea. If she was worth anything she would not be for free. What are you predicating your estimate on.

Take your money and buy something serviceable that may need a few repairs.

I hate to be a nay sayer but there was just a long thread on encouragement or not. I would not feel right if I didn't express my feeling that this is an ill-fated endeavor. There ain't no free lunches but this sounds like an expensive one.

It will be. Every item you buy for the boat (and it may need a lot) will be purchased at 2015 prices. You will easily exceed any future selling price with your costs.

Better choice is to purchase a boat 20 or 30 years old, ready to sail and already depreciated to a low price.

Re: Help identifying this boat.

Yea, i know you guys are right. From past exp i can normally make around a 20% profit from previous ventures. Altho none of thoes were sail boats. Mostly power boats, jet skis and motorcycles. As i was typing this i remembered why i stoped buying broken cars and fixing them to sell.

My plan is to get something i can live aboard and eventually take to the bahamas and beyond (well thats the dream any ways).

Re: Help identifying this boat.

Here's the thing; this vintage and size you can purchase a boat with no major damage, does need new rigging, etc. for very little money. Sailboats can be more expensive and complex than power to renovate. Power boats do not have keels, rigging, winches, etc. to worry about. If you don't know how to evaluate these things then I would highly recommend buying one that sails and floats. The cost of ether repairing keel damage or rigging would exceed the cost of just buying one that needs neither.

Go take a look at the thread titled "Boats Less than $30k.." As there are some boats ready to sail for much less than that wreck will cost you if refitted properly, assuming there has been water inside.

Re: Help identifying this boat.

You might make this a go if you can do most of the work yourself. Even better if you can get it under cover such as a pole barn.

Re: Help identifying this boat.

I have been given a few abandoned boats by a nearby Yard.
Sold one on eBay and scrapped the other one and parted out.
The eBay boat was a 50' Glasslipper and the other one a 62' Italian motor-
Sailor.
Made money on the deal, but would not try fix them up to sail.
Get the paperwork for this boat, pressure clean it and advertise on eBay for $1,500.
Odds are you will make money and get read of it.
