Here's a good deal if you know your way around boats.
Yep, this would be worth looking at, if you were in the area.
Condition of engine and sails would be critical. That foresail in the aft cabin doesn't look too bad...

Re: Boats Less Than $30K Recent Noteworthy Finds

I just text'd the guy. He's asking $19K. for it. Not a bad price. These boats are notorious for leaky/rotten decks and cabins.

ANd here is a discussion of the Aleutian 51 model, one of the boats mentioned in there is probably the one for sale, and if so it seems to have been languishing since 2015, so it may need al lot, but owners had lots of good things to say about these boats: https://livefree2sailfast.com/2017/1...ian-51-owners/
That one is apparently in the yard right across the fairway from me. Maybe I'll go get a closer look. I keep coming back to this listing thinking how I might make that work..... I've got a mechanic friend who could help me put the engine in..... my wife would not be happy though... my kids would be! Big bucks just to keep her though, my cash flow is not there yet

I feel your pain. I almost had a coronary when I saw the prices for slips down there. I take it you're in a 30ft. slip?

Each persons pain is real. My 40í slip cost $763/month. Remind me why we do this?

Re: Boats Less Than $30K Recent Noteworthy Finds

I talked to someone a week or so ago that has their Union 36 (45' overall) that is in a 1/2 commercial harbor and 1/2 recreational harbor that pays $1600 a year in Oregon. That works out to about $134 a month.

Well...yeah, but I guess we are paying for SoCal weather and cruising grounds.

What ever turns ones crank. It's quite beautiful were it is. In a quiet quaint seaside town where people sit on the porch and watch the grass grow. Where liveaboards live peacefully without being under the watchful eye of the "Harbor Police".
