I am pretty sure that I will be parting out my Contest 33. It is really a shame because other than the horrible gelcoat
and some needed interior repairs
she is a really good boat with good sails
, a newer yanmar
and many other mechanical improvments over the years. My needs are for a larger boat that I can live aboard and although I could make this boat work I don't feel that I could live on it and fix it up at the same time.
The boat is in CT and if there are any Contest Owners out there that are looking for newer water tanks
, fuel tank
, brand new frame for a new dodger
, rebuilt hatches, deck
with new rigging
, etc please let me know. Then there are the generic items like the 3GM30F, sea cocks, nice two speed winches, one speed winches, misc hardware
, brand new autopilot
that can be used on anyone similar sized boat.
Of course if someone wants a great, solid boat that is reliable with good sails
but with the blemishes of an old and formerly neglected boat feel free to contact me. I will let her go for a grand or so less than I can get to part her out. She is on the hard
in CT. She is a great solid boat to learn on and does not mind going aground as she always comes out unscathed.
Keep your eyes out as in a week you will start to see items with photos and prices. I am just trying to build up some interest so that I can be more motivated when breaking out the tools as opposed to terribly depressed. I think knowing that the parts
and pieces will be wanted and needed will help me with what I know will be an emotional time. Thanks for listening.
