Re: MC 39 Sloop - feedback

I'm afraid I can't answer that one.

Van Markos did some writing for Good Old Boat magazine a couple of years back - they may be able to help you contact him.

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.

You need 10 or 15 posts to access everything. The fireplace came in several colours - red, black, green & blue that I know of.

I also found that most of the "shiny" is actually bronze, not brass. The eagle handle and trim on the ash drawer is brass, the hood and surround, feet etc. are bronze.

I may have tracked down a black one at a consignment shop - we're going on Tuesday.

Re: MC 39 Sloop - owner experience

I'm looking at a MC39. Any particular things to be on the lookout for, apart from general fiberglass boats of that age?

thanks,

Re: MC 39 Sloop - feedback

First, you need to know if Markos finished it or if he sold it as a hull & deck. If the former, I've never heard of any sort of intrinsic problems with them - he was a very good builder and it was his "name" boat. As I noted elsewhere, he did some of, if not THE best work locally at the time and we've had some very good builders around here.

If the latter, as with all home builts, you have to take it case by case. I've seen some that were the equal of anything afloat and others that only a mother could love.

Which one are you looking at? If it's the cheap one in Seattle, I'm virtually certain that was owner completed - the details are unlike Markos' work. It looks pretty well done though. The expensive one with a windshield in Delta is almost certainly his work. Keep in mind I'm only going by the pics.

Re: MC 39 Sloop - feedback

I didn't know about the one in Delta. I'll try to find that listing.

I've started communication regarding the one in Seattle.

thanks,
Woody

Re: MC 39 Sloop - owner experience

Hey Woody,
Did you look at and/or buy the boat from Seattle. I sent a few emails but the party never responded. Then again it was listed on Craigslist. If you their contact information and you are no longer pursuing the boat, could you pass me the contact info. Thanks man. Dave
