Re: Boats Less Than $30K Recent Noteworthy Finds

Seaworthy for passage making?

Possible to rig for single handing?

The Bounty? Yes, seaworthy. I don't know of anyone singlehanding one, but I am confident it would be fine with the right vane and adaptations.

Now that's a great deal for that boat. One of the best conditions I've seen on here. The interior looks great. Has a watermaker and other good gear. It looks like the sheave brackets have pulled away form the bulkhead...easy fix.

I'll be letting the Westsail 28 go in the early spring. Might even put the Whitehall rowing skiff up for sale also. In have way too many projects going on right now...

Don't know if this has been posted before, it's been for sale for a while. Great design, great builder, great pedigree. Needs a "bit of tidying up" if only I was a bit younger...https://www.yachtworld.com/yacht/196...sloop-7943330/

So I gave the Ok to move into the next phase of paperwork, having all parties sign and initial the bill of sale and a few minor details with getting personal property off the boat and things the sellers have at their home back on the boat, such as all the manuals.
That's excellent. Some things to do, but well-within normal parameters.
How were the thru-hulls?

Aw...if it weren't for the thousands of miles I'd have to go, I'd love me a Whitehall...! Our home marina is also home to my rowing club and we've got lots of fancy rowing boats of all types, but not one of those.

Its a very nice pulling skiff. I may keep it...not sure yet.

Does anyone know something about this Grampian? I live in VA and I can't find any info online about it.

Interesting boat. We looked at one of these many years ago and they have quite a small interior for the length like most boats of that time.

I remember the feeling of being inside a plastic liner was a bit overpowering, no teak ply walls as was designed in later boats. This feeling can be overcome with paint, some rugs and wall decorations.

Nice, simple interior, no dining table (an advantage, imo). The interior cushions look pretty thin and might not be that comfortable.

I'm not sure what the white-painted plywood step is in the cabin. Perhaps I'm misremembering?

Yanmar 3-cyl diesel I think, so this must have been re-powered in the last 30 years. There is water in the bilge under the engine, possibly rainwater or from the stuffing box, I suppose. Perhaps the stuffing box is difficult to access?

I like an Origo cooktop, although this one has missing knobs for the controls. The plastic breaks down after 25+years of use; you can make new ones (as they appear to have attempted). Hopefully the pot holders are on the boat, but the mounting rails are missing. There appears to be clearance at the sides to allow potholders to be used.

These boats have large cockpits. I'd like to see more pictures.

Things to look for: delaminating (oil canning) of the foredeck, if present, you can fix this when putting in a windlass!

I dunno. That cockpit is a mess, in spite of the shiny table. What other deferred maintenance is there? I'm surprised a broker would show this boat.

And a tiller on a large boat is not my choice.

The same comment about interior space should be made. These are really small interiors, although deep bilges and plenty of storage, they have small tanks and deep drafts.

Yes, in the Bounties the engine was under the sole there which was not a good choice IMO, but Pearson later improved that getting the engine out of the bilge. Lots of S: simple, stout, seaworthy, seakindly, spartan, and yes small inside. When I was a kid there was a Bounty across from my boat for over 10 years and I always admired it. Lots of plastic, yes, and a lot of length for not much boat (relatively, today,) but that made it even more compelling, to me anyway. In fact it was in the slip next to the Downeast 38 I sailed. The Downeast seemed grandiose next to the slender Bounty.

The engine is under the white painted step.
