Upgrading

Hello,

I'm getting tired of my old boat with its leaks, aging hardware etc...

I have been offered this awesome slab 11.5 for free!!! It was built from plan by the current owner who says she is too young to sail.

No sails but comes with a great anchor. Anyone knowledgeable with this boat? Any particular issue with the design? What should I be looking for?

The hull and deck are one piece and the cabin top is nailed on. Can I take this boat across the Pacific?

Yeah, of course, but it'll cost you at least $3,000 per month.

Re: Upgrading

Looks great.. Will be equally stable and accommodating upright or inverted!

But don't think for a minute that you could pull it off without a " new gen" anchor

Sure, head across in company with the Flyin' Hawaiian.

I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.

!!!! Wow thanks I totally forgot about that one!

I remember reading about them, I think it was in Latitude38.

If it's still there when I get my new sail for the "other boat" I think I'll make the trip across the bay to see that thing.

It reminds me of a movie I watched when I was a kid...

She looks pretty sturdy. Just remember, if you're going to survive the trip to Hawaii, you'll need a sushi chef or two, and an 80+ year old, as part of the crew.
