I joined this list today as I own my father's Laguna Windrose 18' sailboat. I grew up sailing on this boat
and it was passed on to me and I don't have the size or ability to sail it alone. I am wavering between selling it and finding a person or persons to sail with me. It was garage kept and lovingly buffed on a weekly basis and has no dents or mars. Other than needing new cushions
it is in perfect shape.
Wondered if anyone on this forum has knowledge or can tell me the value of the boat
. I bought new tires for the trailer
last year as the ones on the trailer
had dry rotted. It has been stored in one of my barns for over a decade now and my dad would roll over in his grave if he knew that. Our cars were parked in the driveway so he could keep his beloved boat under cover!
I grew up in Michigan where lakes were everywhere and there was always a Canadian wind
. Not much of either here in the Appalachian Mountains, so trying to decide whether to continue dreaming about sailing again or letting her go...
Comments or suggestions are welcome! Also, if anyone has any idea what the boat would be worth. I know a lot of people restore this particular boat as the company went out of business but had a great reputation. The boat is seaworthy
and doesn't really need any restoration
, just a more experienced Captain
Suki, on dry land in the Mountains of Virginia!
