Selling a dream

Well I never thought I would be putting my boat on the block but here it is.
I am going to sell it as is you can survey it if you want but the price is solid as a rock and I mean I will not budge one cent.$25.000
1979 Catalina 38 SS Atomic 4 cruising boat needs work but is able to sail and is in fair condition. Many new parts battery system pumps wire ect. New bottom April 05 Interlux Ultra with Biolux "Hard Bottom"
She needs to have the mast rewired electrical that is the rigging is very good.
The backstay knee needs to be replaced not a huge job see www.catalina38.org look under tech tips. The Catalina smile is a common problem and does require you haul out and put her on the hard.
I know of other things she needs but are not major problems. Needs a new main sail. Boat in Texas ,health problem forces sale. windrider@surfglobal.net

Sorry to hear that you have to sell her. Another Catalina I know of that is on the market is a real shame, as it was commissioned in April of this year, and he's going to take a huge bath on the depreciation, as it was new in April 2006...

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Sorry to hear that health forces the sale of your Catalina. I hope that you heal and can get another boat soon.

HI Jeff
Ya this is a bummer looks like my aortic graft I had in 2002 has a leak and a buldge in my stomach area. It could be months for the recovery. I had been having some problems since last year when during hurricane Rita I had some bad pains. I think the stress of that storm being on the boat during the storm and living in Marathon which is not liveaboard friendly I put to much stress on the old plumbing. Well the trip to Costa Rica is on the back burner for now. Jeez I put so much into the boat and now this. Should have taken the trip years ago when we were still in Miami ,young and tough as nails. I never say quit I will be back. The boat will get neglected while I am in New Mexico and being treated by a heart specialist. Ah well I think these guys are top shelf and maybe they can fix the problem. Until then some one buy my boat and take care of her. windrider@surfglobal.net
