Tomahawk boat yard is next to the marina I am in. Your boat and mine are about 1000 feet apart. That yard is kind of funny. To the best of my knowledge it is a do it yourself yard. It is owned by a relative of the Sextants Chandlery that is right in front of it.

You are aware there is no access to the water from there, right? The owner of the yard has a trailer and then Danish Marine has a travel lift. Because there are power lines between Danish and Tomahawk the mast has to be unstepped.

If you are open minded I like A. Mazon and associates either her or her partner.

So I'll be in Portland on the 26th and 27th. I set up an appointment with Allison on the 27th to walk through the boat with me. If anyone wants to come by on those two days to take a look and proffer their opinion that would be cool with me. Hopefully the keel isn't falling off or something. I noticed that next door they do bottom paint for $31 a foot...is that a reasonable rate?

Re: Seafarer Tripp 30 In Portland OR

Sorry I'll miss you. I'll be in Portland on the 2nd of Oct but I might just look at the boat from the ground whilst I'm there if I can find the yard.
kind regards,

Re: Seafarer Tripp 30 In Portland OR

Dave,

I have owned a Tripp 29 which is a very similar to a Tripp 30 for the last 17 years and enjoyed every sail. You will not be breaking any speed records, but the boat is quite comfortable to sail.

The boat looks pretty clean, but you might want to take an extra look at these areas:

1. These boats (as many do) have balsa core decks. The hull to deck seam is located under the teak toe rail and it is very susceptible to water intrusion. Check the chain plates for leaks too.
2. Check the fuel tank and see where it is located. If it is the same as the 29 it is located in the bottom of the bilge. I had to replace my tank due to corrosion.
3. Check the keel where the bronze fitting for the rudder attaches. Our boat needed a bit of fiberglass repair at this location.
4. It probably would not be a bad idea to pull out the chain plates also. Corrosion found on mine.

The deck problems ultimately lead me to take the boat out of the water and move it to my house for repair. In the process we ended up buying a C&C 34, so I own 2 boats now. Probably going to sell the Tripp cheap or scrap/part it out
If you have any questions feel free to PM me.

Re: Seafarer Tripp 30 In Portland OR

The last time I had a yard do the bottom on my 35' boat, it came to over $2000 though that did include some other work like changing the cutlass bearing. Full keel boats get a deal on price by foot as they have a lot more surface below the water line than fin keel boats. Be sure the price includes a quality bottom paint and that is the total in and out charge without other add ons.

If the boat is in a yard already, why not just paint it yourself?
Buy the paint from Kim at Columbia marine exchange.

I've thought about doing the paint myself but I don't know the first thing about it. I suppose doing it is the only way to learn but I really don't want to mess it up. Maybe if the surveyor says it just needs sanded and painted I might give it a try but if there's any fiberglass repair involved I'll probably have it done by a professional.

Re: Seafarer Tripp 30 In Portland OR

Doing the bottom can be a small deal or a really big deal. If it is just roughing up paint and rolling on a couple of coats no big deal. Two days at the most.

Re: Seafarer Tripp 30 In Portland OR

Larry Goodson is great as is Alison Mazon. Can't go wrong with either. For supplies do talk to Kim at Columbia marine exchange. She can order at a reduced cost almost anything that you need. Plus she will take most anything you have leftover on consignment.

If I get a chance I'll drop by when you are in town. Might be quite a gathering....

Regards

I paid $50 a foot 2 years ago to have the bottom done on my Seafarer 29. And that's $50 a foot for the length of the boat, not at the waterline.

Re: Seafarer Tripp 30 In Portland OR

I hope the sailboat is in acceptable condition with no hidden "disabling casualties" aboard. Will be curious to see how it turns out when you get there.

Yeah...I keep having nightmares about stepping on the deck and having it fall through. Hopefully nothing too serious pops up. I'll find out in a couple weeks.

This trip I'll be there three days the 26th-28th. Hopefully mid-October I'll be down there for good and can start working on it.
