And as a follow up to my earlier message: any sailors who happen to be in Tonga want to go take a look at a Wharram Narai?

Re: Cheap Multis and Projects

OK Folks,
I found this one "locally" and I need to know if it's even worth hiring a surveyor to check it out. It certainly has a lot of water damage from leaky windows, hole in the hull and hull leaks. It has been totally neglected for many years.
Here are some pics. The designer & builder are unknown, but apparently it was built in the late 70's. It's a 42'er. Can anyone identify it?
I'm also concerned about the bridge deck clearance. Those steps down into the saloon suggest it's not very good.
Thanks in advance for your feedback!
Craig

Re: Cheap Multis and Projects

The steps down into the saloon look like that is because there is no cockpit well. The cockpit appears decked. Was this originally a ketch? I don't understand the 7 sets of chainplates.

I can't give you an answer on whether it is worth pursuing with a surveyor. I do note that it appears to have a large, rotted hole in the transom, along with other cockpit worries, and it appears to be constructed of plywood. Plywood could cause you years of grief.

The amount of booze on board is interesting...

CSK? Cross? Sorry, I don't really know, but whoever stocked that galley has their priorities exactly right.

"Moonshadow" is also being given away on ebay.

Needs all new standing rigging; extensive deck work, MANY soft spots, plywood partially exposed to the sun in many places; new sails,
Nice owner/builder who built the boat well. It would take $10-15,000. easy, probably more, to get that boat sailing.
Plus you have to find a boat mover to get the boat to the water....
The bottom of this tri is its best feature...

I think the Piver 33' I was in love with in Corpus Christi sold.....

Re: Cheap Multis and Projects

I forgot to mention that it is plywood w/fiberglass construction.
It has been a liveaboard party boat for a while.
If you consider Moonshadow a "giveaway" at $3,000, if he doesn't cancel the auction again, then this one is a giveaway, too.
I would much rather have a catamaran, than a trimaran, plus this one is in my backyard compared to Moonshadow.

So the big question is, would I be better off putting the money into building the one that I really want? I'm thinking a simple, de-mountable (so it can be built away from the water), ~10m, KSS build, with open, solid bridge deck, sunbrella canopy. Possible salon added later when time and money allows.

Thanks!
Craig

Re: Cheap Multis and Projects

depends how much time and money you have to throw at it? Figure new standing rigging and chainplates/bolts to begin with... if its glass over ply, you'll need several sheets of marine ply, epoxy and time to dig out and replace all the dry-rot around the windows and any idea why the cushions and bedding are all gone? Galley would lead you to believe that someone lives there, but maybe the smell of mouldy cushions was too much? I think the old chainplaates not being used just show that someone decided to move the stays for some reason? In short - A lotta work IMHO

Steve,
Why aren't you interested in Moonshadow in Oakland? Have you looked at it?

Re: Cheap Multis and Projects

You might be right about the ketch. Next to the cockpit bulkhead is a support with a winch on it (pics 3 & 4). Maybe this was for the mizzen. No pic of the bow but I wonder if there is some type of mast step there.
That cockpit deck looks curvy and not in a good way.
Is this an epoxy boat? And is everything wrapped in glass and not just painted? Engines run? Etc. Is it in Hawaii?

Craig
I have not yet seen "Moonshadow", although I know she's been for sale for awhile at a bigger price that was out of my range.. I just saw her on Ebay at quite a discounted price. Sounds like she hasn't been maintained too well .
I might go see her very soon.

Any way to tell if it's an epoxy boat? The current owner is not aware of these details. He said it was fiberglassed plywood, but an inspection would be best to answer these questions.
There are no engines. Outboard was stolen, along with solar panel and inverter.
Yes, it's in Hawaii.
Anyone live on Oahu that might be able to check it out? (I hope I don't risk losing it this way.)

Re: Cheap Multis and Projects

I have heard that if you can sand it a little then it will smell like epoxy or polyester. You can buy those little DIY of epoxy packs and Bondo is polyester to use as a sniff test guage. The poly stinks more. Epoxy is expensive, stronger and more waterproof but is not UV resistant except for some of the new stuff. It has to be painted. Polyester is less expensive, weaker, less waterproof but more UV resistant. Either way is good if done right. So, Is the boat all wrapped with fiberglass? This is the cloth not the resin. You should be able to see some at the damaged areas. And how much is she?
