Re: Sailboat for sale

I can't really call it a sister boat because it doesn't look anything like my sister. It's more like a third cousin twice removed.
The electrical whatchamacallits and doohickies all were made some time this century or last. The model numers begin with 0 and end with 1 sepzillion. there's probably a couple of alphabits in ther, too. There wuz in my cerreal this mornin.

Re: Sailboat for sale

I read on the internet that it's not a bluewater boat at all.

I'll bet it's one of those darned coastal-cruisers, and it wouldn't even make it around the Cape. A friend of my brother heard that some parts fell off one once when it tried to leave the dock, because the thingies weren't sturdy enough.

He also heard that real sailors wouldn't even consider sitting on it to drink beer.

Nothing personal, but it can't be all that good 'cause I never owned one. My wife wants us to get a safe boat.

Re: Sailboat for sale

I really like the way ground tackle is set up.

I have a bag of grapefruit some guy gave me that I am tired of eating. If you want to trade for them let me know and I will get in my raft and paddle over. Call me on my phone, I keep it in a ziploc.

Re: Sailboat for sale

I'm not going to answer Nimble because his reply sounds like a Nigerian Craigslist scam. He is not to be trusted. I think he's the one with dreads.

IT is NOT a BLUEWATER boat......

And I should know... A friend of a friend's brothers aunt was widowed when her ex sailed one of these in a storm, and it was windy, and the blackwater was hitting the sails and the fan.....


His body was found with his zipper unzipped.... No PFD..

Re: Sailboat for sale

I looked it up on Yachtworld, and it seems like a pretty good deal, compared to all the other yachtworld prices.

Of course, all those other yachtworld listings may have been there for a while, but the yachtworld folks are smart enough to know that it's really irrelevant to buyers how long a boat has been listed.

Re: Sailboat for sale

I just looked it up on Sailboatdata, and they say it's made of ceeeement. Is it made of ceeeement? My uncle used to have a ceeeement pond, and we loved it.

If it is the ceeeement model, does it have rusty mesh, or chickenwire, I heard I have watch out for the chickenwire.
