I had spent about 20 min. typing a response to questions that were posed - hit submit and lost
it all....a programming problem. My main thrust was to list several other owners of the 53'. There were 30 built in the 82-82 time frame. Most were with boards but don't know the breakdown. The following boats have been around a long time with the same owners: Seawitch, John and Susan, 508.631.6535-a charter
boat that works in Caribbean
in winter and Martha's Vineyard
in the summer. Skipping Stone, Andrew & Nikke, cruisers who rarely turn on their engine
,, 305.731.3065, firstname.lastname@example.org
. Isla, Wayne & Linda Corcorran. Cell 772.538.7928; email email@example.com
Have extensively modified the interior
and been aboart 12+ years-sail the boat a lot. There is another 53' in Coral
Bay St. John but have not met owners. Only other 53' I have seen was in Maryland
and the boat was being rehabbed and had a long way to go.
Someone wrote about the 53' "Built like a tank and sails
like a stallion".
There is no owners association but it would be a good idea to start one.
