Beautiful boat; a classic. What are you asking for her? I am in Hawaii and want to buy a boat further west where I can keep her out there.

Don't know how I missed this OP. Own, and love my Reliant. Classic 60's design, fast but a little wet on the wind.
Philip Rhodes reported said that this was his favourite piece of work.
Having gutted mine, and completely restoring the boat, I think I can say that the price asked can not be any where near what the stated work cost the seller.
so many projects--so little time !!
