Question & Answer (followed by Answered On Date)

Q: Do you have any idea how much will cost me to move this boat to South Texas ?( South Padre Island) Nov-05-09
A: None at all. Do a web search for boat haulers.

Q: Its does not say buy it now so how do I know what your reserve is? and where else is it listed Nov-05-09
A: Buy it now has disappeared since the reserve has already been met. Listed on Craigslist in RI.

Q: Hi, looks like a very nice boat. What is the draft? What needs to be done to make sure it can sail / motor? What are costs to keep the boat where it is til spring? Thanks , Chuck Nov-01-09
A: Hi Chuck, Draft is 4' 10". Oil leak needs to be addressed for motoring, sailing is not a problem. Can be stored on the hard at present location for the winter, I believe would cost under $1,200. Up the cove there's in water storage that would cost $860.

Q: Do you plan on hauling out the boat before the end of the auction? Thanks, Ted Rapoza Oct-31-09
A: No, it will still be in the water.

Q: Nice looking boat. Does the boat have central air? If not what is all the ducting behind the potti? What are the tankage sizes (fuel,fresh water, grey/black water, macerator, y-valve)? Is there a windlass for the anchor? Do the stands come with the boat? Is there a cradle that comes with the boat? Do any of the ports/windows leak? What type and how many bilge pumps are there? How severe is the oil leak on the engine? If you would rather speak over the phone, please feel free to send me your number and I would be glad to call you for discussions. Thanks. Tim Oct-30-09
A: Hi Tim, There is an A/C unit in the head, dated but runs tempermentally. Fuel tank is an 11 gallon aft of the helm under the seat with the original 18 gallon still in place under the cockpit sole. Head is porta-potti, no holding tank in place. No windlass, stands belong to marina, no cradle - boat is currently in the water. The fixed panes have minor leaks. Single Rule bilge pump and Whale gusher hand pump accessible from the cockpit located under starboard seat. Oil leak seems to be about 1/2 quart with 20 min running, I'm goig to try and track it this weekend. Thanks for the inquiry. Paul

Q: HI Can you tell me about the sails? also any soft spots on deck can boat be seen thks bob Oct-30-09
A: See prior response on sails. No soft spots. Am able to show boat by appointment.

Q: 1. What is reserve amount? Don't want to get into nickel and dime bidding war trying to find out where to start. Been there, done that, several times. 2. What is sail inventory/condition? Retired ship captain, looking to buy boat, at fair price, on east coast, rig single handed, sail south, then canal, maybe Galapagos, back to San Francisco. Own dock walking distance to college (UOP) where daughter will live aboard starting 2011. She's been on blue water and lived aboard. Oct-30-09
A: Sail inventory consists of a main that is in ok shape and a roller furling 140 thats in good shape. Both were cleaned and restitched at Doyle Sailmakers 2 years ago. I've sailed a number of times single handed and have had no problems. Reserve is set around 1/2 of buy it now.

Great minds discuss ideas;
Average minds discuss events;
Small minds discuss people.
The best minds discuss sailing (and a little bit of politics). I don't know why. It's a mystery!
