Re: New Old Boat

Thanks Everyone,

We just read all your replies, we have been on vacation. The water test, survey and haul out were great. The surveyor said he'd take this to Hawaii without reservation. All he did was point out upgrade after upgrade and good maintenance and how the owners took such good care of it. I have some little things to take care of, but nothing major or expensive.

Waiting on the oil lab report for the 34 year old 24 hp Atomic, and a possible closing this Friday in time for the 3 day holiday. Fingers and toes crossed.

Dave

Re: New Old Boat

First off thank you for our service, glad to see the survey went well. Once ou pick up the boat, I'm assuming you're going to take the plunge, go to Amazon or a bookstore and buy Don Casey's book on sailboat maintenance, refinishing, electrical, etc. they will help immensely with the small things that will happen. Congrats and good luck.

Re: New Old Boat

Good luck! And I second the recommendation for the Don Casey book. We have "This Old Boat" and find it to be very thorough.

Re: New Old Boat

I bought a 1982 a year and a half ago; my brother just bought a 1973 this year. Three decades is not that old for an FG hull.

Re: New Old Boat

They don't build the like they used to. The mighty PERRYWINKLE was built in 1978 with a sail drive and everything was still skookum when I sold is 6 mos ago.

Re: New Old Boat

Congrats! I think you'll love the Allmand. She's not as svelt and fast as some others out there, but very comfy.

Re: New Old Boat

When I bought my 1968 Hinterhoeller 28-footer 3 years ago, the surveyor just kept shaking his head and muttering "wow, they really knew how to build them back then" or words to that effect. Sure, I had a punchlist of upgrade and repair work to be done, but knowing the boat had good bones gave me the confidence to invest another few grand and many (mostly fun) hours.

Another resource I highly recommend is Good Old Boat magazine. They sell back issues on CD and their issues are chock full of ideas for repairing and upgrading older sailboats. Their advertisers may be valuable sources for your refit needs too.

It's ours!!!!!!!

Hey All,

The lab report fro the oil couldn't have been any better. We close tomorrow! We'll have it for the weekend. First thing Saturday morning we have to motor over to our new (temporary) slip in Anacortes, WA, then in 3 weeks, it's down to our home port of Everett. Will take some pictures Saturday. Thanks everyone for the words of encouragement.

Dave
