I re-listed here after reading that you weren't allowed to post EBAY links .
After a lot of thinking and grungy boat work
…I have decided that it's a little too overwhelming for me to have TWO sailboats . The problem is … I love them both! But ….alas , I am going to put my newly acquired North Atlantic 29 back up for sale
. This way I can concentrate on finishing up (and actually sailing) my C-Mist 32 .
I figured I would throw this out to my fellow sailors here first before doing a proper listing on the net.
As some of you may know , I recently purchased Dave Chamberlin's old boat
"Pelican" . She has a lot of projects to complete , but she is an incredibly solid boat …and very , very well built. You can see one of the sisterships , Yacht Teleport in action here: Teleport Expeditions - Chris Bray & Jess Taunton
Chris and Jess have done some fantastic voyages on a cold molded version of this design.
After spending the last few weeks aboard , cleaning
her up and taking stock , it appears that Dave was right in the middle of a complete refit
when he sold
her. Some gear
is only partially installed …meaning not wired up yet and never used.
The boat is "geared up" very well : Wind Generator
3040 wind vane
, all wind/speed sailing instruments ,a new (uninstalled) 20 gallon fuel tank
, 35 lb. CQR
with tons of chain, miles of spare line , a never used $3000. Maxwell
power anchor windlass
, 2 gorgeous Anderson self tailing
winches ,and even has a "Hasler-esque" clear plexiglass dome for one of the round hatches …VERY COOL!
I have the tanbark sail partially rigged (just need to do the parrels) and it and all battens are in fine condition.
MD7a (13 h.p.)was partially taken apart , and I , along with some mechanical help , deduced that he was cleaning
out the cooling
system … pretty common on these. I just spent the last week cleaning and putting the motor
back together with new gaskets. She spins freely and has great compression
….but ….now the starter is frozen from sitting so long and needs a rebuild
She needs a haul and new bottom paint
Dave cut out half of the starboard settee to build a proper galley
…so , there is a big hole there. The new bulkhead is already cut ….ready to build to suit.
a few days of work
sorting the engine
…and she will be out sailing , another month of sweat and elbow
grease …and you will have a fine , junk rigged vessel that can take you anywhere in safety
, comfort and style.
