Try course racing. They have a whole series of obscure terms, not all of which are socially polite.

Iím so glad that PC37 is on the wrong coast, it would be a horrible temptation. Heck, Iíd push it on / off dock and sail as-is on nice heavy weather days.

Uh...sorry...It was an actual decomposed carcass of a dead coyote. The boat had been abandoned in the Barstow desert, where I bought the boat. It was 1985.

Re: Boats Less Than $30K Recent Noteworthy Finds

TARTAN 41 - $4,000 (oakland lake merritt / grand)


https://sfbay.craigslist.org/eby/boa...443424652.html

My only comment here is that it is fairly priced. But you better be younger with lots of enthusiasm. Also you might be able to use the Ferryman diesel as an anchor.

This is a very good price for one of these boats. New engine, new sails.
Shallow draft (3'9"). They are good, solid small coastal cruisers.
The interior looks dirty and tired although the interior pictures are dark so it's hard to assess. It has a propane stove and heater. Opening ports.
If the photos are recent, this has had a recent bottom job. Dodger and bimini. Good sized cockpit.
There appears to be an anchor roller and reinforcing bar added below the wooden bow platform. This overcomes the common complaint about access to anchors on the extended version of the bow platform on these boats (there is an anchor roller there too).
This Bayfield 32 for sale at $17.5 Canadian (~$14K US), just sold. ~10 days.

In the last few years, often enough. You just have to know when to pull the trigger. Then be happy with what you chose.

I post this because I know this type of boat. The price is typical for a 32 foot boat of this type with diesel engine, but also because of the modifications "made for cruising". They are easliy set up for single handing.
First impression, I'm not taken with the hard dodger/bimini, it adds a lot of windage and weight (as do some other additions).
Solid all around handrail. Davits. Mast steps. Massive solar array.
A functional interior; a bit tired. That upholstery would not be my choice. The saloon ports appear to be fixed, usually there were two opening ports further forward in the head and over the hanging locker.
Lazyjacks, lee cloths and a yard trailer, plus cradle are nice to have. The trailer doesn't look roadworthy - these boats are typically around 10,000 lbs.
The ad is pretty sparse in detail. I'd like to know what the anchoring system is (there may be a windlass). And more photos.
These are small, well-built boats but they are more than 40 years old, so state of gear/sails/engine is important. Most of that era had relatively short masts and were cutter-rigged. The yankee here is on a furler and the staysail looks to be hank-on. The draft is 3' 9" or so (1.14m) meaning if you run aground in the Bahamas you can get out and push.
The owner may have a problem selling from this distance. If he brought it back to Lake Ontario he'd have less trouble getting this price.
Price drop on this boat. Now $15K Canadian (~$12K US). This should sell quickly at this price, although the logistics are complicated.

Re: Boats Less Than $30K Recent Noteworthy Finds

1981 C&C 36 $29K Canadian (~$23K US) in Rouses Point, NY, Lake Champlain on Canadian border.

https://www.kijiji.ca/v-voilier/laur...981/1431197852

The pictures show a boat in decent shape, clean interior. These boats were really very popular for families to go cruising to the Caribbean.

The boat looks relatively simple, used as a lake boat perhaps. Engine is probably original.

Don't be put off by the French listing. Many people in that part of the world communicate pretty well in English too.

Lake Champlain, NY, is pretty well the nearest big lake for Montreal people to sail on, so it is a very popular place to keep a bigger boat.

Re: Boats Less Than $30K Recent Noteworthy Finds

1983 Hunter 34 price reduced to $25K Canadian (~$20K US) near Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada.

https://www.kijiji.ca/v-sailboat/cit...-34/1605760036

Again, a straightforward good-sized conventional cruising boat. There are a lot of these around for comparison.

Interior looks clean. Some upholstery has been replaced. Some exterior canvas too, perhaps as the main sail cover and dodger don't match.

Pictures show rust stains on jib.

The plywood on the hull of the aft berth may shows signs of moisture, perhaps condensation.

Decent anchor, no windlass. Dinghy with electric motor included. A number of opening ports. Engine is probably original. Self-tailing winches and chart plotter are good to have.

Re: Boats Less Than $30K Recent Noteworthy Finds

1972 Morgan outislander
$22,500

Listed 3 weeks ago in Savannah, GA

https://www.facebook.com/marketplace...58214402030919
Seller's Description







36Ft 1972 Morgan OutIslander! Retractable center board. 2 1/2 ft draft center board up


I read C. Morgan preferred centerboards but dealers didn't want them but were an early option. I thought the draft would be the same either way with board up? Clean looking boat looks like newer paint. Non slip looks slippery?

Re: Boats Less Than $30K Recent Noteworthy Finds

I've been watching this one for a while, because I like the Pearson 424s. The price dropped on this one twice in the last month, putting it just under $30K now.

https://www.boattrader.com/boat/1980...n-424-7929998/

From the ad:
"The boat has been sitting on the hard for 10 years. Needs a good cleaning. Every system should be gone over. Hull and rigging looks to be in good shape. Will require some wood replacement where there was some leaks that caused damage. Engine will require servicing due to diesel fuel sitting in the tank and engines."
