What would you like to know? Willard Marine still makes boats, albeit for coastal police, Coast Guard, and Navy. They shut their pleasure boat business down ways back. Company is in Southern California. There are two Willards located in Los Alamitos Bay Marina in Long Beach. I have some pictures posted of the boat in various threads as well as in my profile in various stages of repair / refinishing. That being said, it is my first boat, and I am a new sailor. Hence, all I have is a lot of opinions and some observations.

What's on your mind?

And.... how did you hear of these boats??

Since it has been a couple of months... How has your sailing gone with your new Willard? I am seriously looking at a Willard 30 Cutter... Sea Trial is on 30 Aug... will tell you how it goes.

I currently have a Union 36 Cutter rig... I am very interested in how these cutters sail... Hopefully they are as good a ride as the Union.
