There's a fibreglass Herreshoff 28 for sale in Port Townsend for $15,000 open to offers.
Surely has to be worth a look.
Possibly not a production boat but could be fantastic, who knows?
Twice the volume of a Flicka, meets the loa 30ft criteria for marinas. Good pedigree.

ERRATUM. Sorry, 25,000. Offers considered.
Reads well. Says "come for a sail".

Kind of a long trip from Honolulu to Port Townsend just to look at a boat.

Re: Flicka 20 too small for liveaboard?

I know this is an old thread but as Iím having 2 foot itis I though I would chime in. I very happily lived aboard my flicka with my girlfriend and two dogs. The only reason we sold it was there just wasnít enough storage to cruise Much more than a month without restocking. We moved up to an Allegra 24 and it was gigantic for us. Now solo single and no dog sail a Falmouth Cutter. Is it too small? Both yes and no. My eyes are locked on a Bristol Chanel Cutter but every time I find a good one I canít bring myself to let the FC go so there is much more to it than is it big enough. If I was fortune enough to be living in Hawaii onboard a flicka Iíd think I had died and gone to heaven. Just my 2 cents which is all itís worth.

Re: Flicka 20 too small for liveaboard?

A flicka is like living in a VW Westphalia Camper and way to small to live aboard. Its also painfully slow under sail. The Falmouth cutter is a much better boat but its basically a cut down a Bristol Channel Cutter. Bristol Channel Cutter is a well proven world cruiser with good hull speed and a sea kind ride if your planning to go cruising its a great choise.

The FC is a superb little boat. Sailed alongside one for quite a while cruising, had identical speed as my 30 footer.
