So interested to come across this thread. I sail out of Buck's Harbor in Maine and, when I was a little kid, I remember they used to race Dark Harbor 17's. At some point, the Yacht Club tried to transition to Bluenoses, which never seemed to work out for some reasd and then they ended up sailing the Ensigns, but there have been a couple Bluenoses in the harbor ever since. I neverr had a chance to sail one, but I've always admired them and on their moorings and on those occaisions when I see them under sail out in the bay. Beautiful, beautiful boats.

In researching a Bluenose, I came across this wonderful thread. What a wealth of info. My big question is however, is there one for sale somewhere. We just sold our Pearson 33-2 and want to go smaller(read more fun). When I saw a photo of a Bluenose I knew the boat should be my next boat. So if anyone knows of one for sale, please let me know.

I just came across this old post, and I am interested in the Mcvay version and wondering if anyone has one for sale. From what I have learned the Mcvay version has is fiberglass and has the cabin.Am I correct in assuming this?
Thanks, Dave

Re: Ok, how about a McVay Bluenose Sloop? Jeff_H, anyone?

We Just acquired a 1980 McVay Blunose, and I am 5 days into a pretty complete restoration project. Figure this boat will look outrageously pretty with Flag Blue topsides. The good news is this particular boat is really quite sound (with just a few of the usual challenges to sort), but it is very oddly rigged. It has 7 2 speed Lewmar winches attached to various places. The boat also sports a main taveler that would be approprite on a Hinckley Bemuda 40 Some one had also glued a lot of teak trim to the deck and cockpit. I really wish 3m wouldn't sell super adhesives to folks with goofy ideas. (it took 25 hours of brutal effort to remove the extraneous teak) All seems like a previous owners's effort to assemble a sort of mini Nautor Swan.

We are reformed E scow racers looking to recapture the pleasure of sailing without screaming. I am going to re-rig with some of the vast inventory of Harken hardware that messing with iceboats and Scows caused me to warehouse in my shop, but I am curious if anyone here might have a photo showing the original layout of a spinnaker equipped version of this boat?

Some pictures soon.

Can I see some pictures of your boat? I need to replace some teak on mine and was wondering how you tackled that?
