I've been reluctant to post this, it feels a little like failure on these forums
. But I know it's really just a re-set, the journey is not over.
My 1980 Endeavour
32 is up for sale
- or I would trade
it for something a bit smaller such as a Cape Dory
28, a Westsail 28, or a southern Cross 31. You can see what I'm interested in, something smaller with with a full (ish) keel
and tiller steering
. NO wheel steering
Here is a link to where the boat
is listed with many many pictures and a video. She is in Jacksonville Florida
and the asking price
I am semi-working for the broker
, Larry Redmond, so I think we can make a pretty good deal for someone.
The previous owner did a lot of good things to the boat
, such as the bronze ports
, new sails
, and solar panels
. And I have done a lot of things over the last year too. New plumbing
, new head
and holding tank
, new batteries
and more. She is VERY clean. Just changed engine oil
and there is nothing holding her back from going anywhere. No soft spots, no structural issues, everything works, no leaks
, she's a very dry boat. It was one of the reasons we bought her in the first place.
Unfortunately my wife is just having too much difficulty on the boat because of bad knees. And she's just not as into it as she wanted to be. But I have her full permission to pursue the dream solo as long as I don't forget where home is.
I really would be very interested in a Cape Dory
28 or something similar.
Thanks, and I'll answer questions here if you like. Or PM me. Or call Larry and talk to him and he could give you my number. It's all good.
I will post a couple of pictures to adhere to the rules, but the link has a ton, plus the video.
