She started off as a 1970 Cal
of 10,689, Sail area of 479, Hull speed
of 6.9, L.O.A of 30.36, and L.W.L. of 26.51
The previous owners, currently owners of The Watermaker
Store, had her since the early '80s. She was extended 5 feet in a yard south of the border. They had the radar
tower added and the other tower facilitates a wind vane
for self steering
with an additional rudder
that attaches to the swim step.
I purchased "Windthief" in February this year and have been slowly getting her back on her legs so to speak. The previous owners have been very involved in their business and other interests so the regular use that this boat needs just wasn't there.
previous owners sailed her down into the far south of Mexico
twice I believe before starting their business.
My plan is to have her loan payed off in two and a half years and take her as far as I can in an unended cruise
she is documented as "WINDTHIEF"
Thanks for asking
