I need some community help for a boat search.

Hi all,

I think I have identified my next boat purchase. After significant research I am looking for a boat known as a Stiletto 27 made by Force Engineering out of Sarasota. She was made mid 70s through the mid 80s.

I have exhausted my knowledge of online boat classified ads.

Anyone seen a recent ad? Know of someone who may want to sell? I would appreciate any assistance in locating a for sale specimen.

Thanks!

XORT, That was hopefully a good save. It's tough if you feel like you made up your mind about something , then (new) information is presented. I have changed my mind more then once about my next purchase because of research and feedback. I got my mits on a bunch of old Practical Sailor mags. In each issue they review a particular boat and usually give great info about said company. I haven't seen any mention of stoners though.

Yes, The composite layup can be VERY expensive to repair but I would assume to buy a used one with a solid structure. It seems to hold up well as there are still many of them still in use.

The story about the hull failure is the first I have read. Hopefully that means it is a rare event.

Is there something i'm missing??? A poor reputation? Poor craftmanship? Poor handling?

You shouldn't post your e-mail address in machine readable form unless you like a lot of SPAM. Use the following form instead:

or something similar.

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.
