Jim Brown Searunner 31 A Frame

Life issues may force me to keep the boat on the hard this year. It's up the Connecticut River. Bottom has been sanded and barrier coated. I've been involved in repainting top side and am pretty close to finish. If she sells in meantime fine, if not, fine I wil just continue to tinker with her.

So I am offering the boat for $18,000.00 and will consider offers. She is not perfect and sails are not perfect. If you want a boat that needs nothing no need to waste your time - and mine.

Good ocean cruiser. Very solid structurally.
