Re: Average number of months for a sailboat to sell
Those were the only two showing in YW, so either the boat has finally sold, or it is not being listed as a 36-2.
In the larger world, again? Maybe racers know Kaufman, but racers don't want an old less-than-spectacular race boat. In the larger world? "George Kaufman" oh, right, you must mean Kaufman and Hart, the Broadway composers ! Rings the wrong bell, doesn't it? (G)
By definition, it WILL sell, it the price is right (as defined by the marketplace) and if anyone knows it is for sale. Marketplace for an obsoleted purpose-built boat? Well, the Navy scraps a lot of those, too.
Such a shame, it is a pretty boat.
I was shown an aluminum 36 some years ago, also semi-custom, almost flush decked, tiny "pit" of a cockpit. All it needed was to tear off the entire deck, rebuild it with a conventional cabin and cockpit and...Right, a total killer.
I wonder if there's a boating equivalent of Jay Leno's garage, a place where obsoleted boats can hang out and be admired?
