For some reason I think it should show him up the mast with binoccs in one hand and a bottle of rum in the other :biggrin:

I couldn't agree more on the idea of a 30 footer with a tiller. Being fairly rookie, I fi ally worked my way up to 36 feet and the wheel I thought I had to have. Because I can only afford old boats, the 36 feet did nothing but jack up repair costs. The cabin wasn't any bigger than the 29 footer I have now, and man did I miss my tiller.

Am I alone or are there others that get all weirded out when Boaty changes his avatar? It's like there's a disruption in the force or something.

Well... Truth be told.. I dare not post an as is now pic.. looks like a bombs hit the interior..:biggrin:
No cushions.. bits in garage's here, there, everywhere and paint, rollers etc.. would take a week to get her to sailaway in an emergency... Armageddon whatever..:biggrin:
But.. I am prepared.. I watch Fox News via SatTv...:thumb:

I NEVER thought Woody Allen is an artist. I don't even think him as a human being.

If a boats advertised in the MED offer 50% less.. they always jack up the price for the sun..
or.. all sellers add 25-50% to get what they want..:rolleyes:
so offer them at least 40% less...:facepalm:
Where are these weird and wonderful things dreamt up...:biggrin::biggrin::biggrin:
1981 steel Van de Stadt 37 with hull lengthened to facilitate a swim platform resulting in an LOA of 11.9metres.
A sailaway and keep basic or.. a mobile project to mould around you.. steel makes life so easy internal furniture wise.. topsides.. functional but always room for improvement...
StuM... what dya reckon mate...:flowers:
Oppssss.... fore and aft cabin, salon galley and basic head/shower.. sorriiiieeeee

Swim platform is something I have planned for mine one day. A welder (who I didn't use this year for the first time in 4 years) was keen to do it this year, but I've spent enough money painting it.

Down here in Tassie, boat prices seem to routinely have 10k added to the price. I asked about this with Tassie's main boat seller and they said it's due to the 'strait' which is one of the silliest things I've heard. Because of this silly price inflation thing, many boats in Tassie sell exceptionally slowly and I'm talking years. There is a guy at my local marina who had wanted to sell his sloop for $69k for the past 4 years. Asking price is too much, but he won't have a bar of it. Over the past four years that he's been selling it and not using it, he's dished out another $14k in marina fees and hauled last year to antifoul.. :nonono: don't figure.

"I wonder if it is horribly expensive to convert one to tiller? Must look into that."

Can't be all that expensive. Bit of work with a saw and some mat'n'resin. It a job I have to do. Summer after this. Drawings are on the drafting table now.

A wheel is an 'orrible affectation in a thirty-footer!

Boaty, don't forget to mention the recently rebuilt hydraulic steering :biggrin:

Perhaps you should jack up the price an extra 10% for CF members, after all it is an opportunity to buy a "famous" CF yacht :wink:

Regardless, I think you should get back to the boat and take dozens of photos and load them (hi res) to one of the many free blog sites. I think it is crazy to try to sell a boat with a limited number of photos or to not post hi res photos. Add a like to the photos on yachtworld or wherever it is being marketed.

From my broker days..........."it's only worth what someone is willing to pay for it" :-)

We would generally price a boat close to what we thought was market and then slowly lower until the phone started ringing (along with making sure we were getting the word out which is really easy to do these days!)

All the best!
