Re: troubling news..

The stock of good old cheap boats is falling every year, the economy is slowly comming out of recession, and a wave of old timers will retire to the hobby of sailing, so prices will go up. My J22 rose in value 50% in the few years I owned it. Now my good old cheap 29 footer only gets repaired with used parts, and upgrades with used parts, to hedge my bets. Rear pulpit $50 from a C&C. Complete and new nagahide cushion covers $100. A cylinder head, fuel pump, alternator and wiring for $140. Mylar genoa $340. And the same amount for my girlfriend. Life is grand!
