Think I'll buy her for a backup.
Perfect boat for gunkholing in the Bahama's. You would have to anchor so far off shore, it would take visitors all day to get out to you. Would be a peaceful anchorage tho.

That's not his last toy, the current ride is an old SC 70. Family fun racing.

Pyewacket was on the hard at Windward shipyard when we were in Marina Del Rey and when we were down in Driscoll shipyard in San Diego so was she. She's quite an engineering marvel with her canting (?) keel, huge dagger boards, wings and monster mast. The leading edge of the keel has what looks like a razor blade that you can move up and down to cut any wrapped kelp, probably pretty standard but I'd never seen it before.

I've always wanted to see her in the water but she always been on land when we've been around.

I wonder how much has been invested in her and think the offering price must represent just pennies on the dollar.
