Not much original to say at this point. Hope she's all you hope she'll be.

She hasn't been out for a while, but the faithful Hartley is still sitting in the carport at home. Belive it or not, the Admiral has grown kind of fond of her and won't let me sell her just yet.

We haven't been out in her for a while now and the Championships are on this weekend (which we'll miss for other reasons).. but I guess we'll have to sell her at some stage.

It's funny, 'cause I bought a new #2 last year (only been up once!) and there is absolutely nothing left to do on that boat - in contrast to the new one!

For now, at least, we're in the "two-boat-owner" club.

Whoa, Cameron, I didn't realize she was such a classic!

You don't own her. You're just her latest caretaker.

All the best, lucky man!

Cameron yearns for a life of poverty and hard toil interspersed by the occasional moment of bliss......he's about to get his wish.

Onya mateeee.....you fool.....


ps - have you seen that Alan Payne timber motor sailor on YachtHub ? Struth, even I could get the hots for that. Not much of a sailor but not a bad thing for a couple of geriatrics to potter about the coast in....if they were silly enough to buy a 50 year old timber.......

I figure everyone should own a wooden boat at least once in their life...
I'm sure there was a reason for that, but I've forgotten what it was!

.. Then, of course, there are those of us who'd do that more than once.. that really IS crazy!!

C,

Does not mean the pen transfer went through ? I guess so.

I tell you what she does look good though doesn't she ?

We do expect to see pics of beaming skipper and skipperette.

ps - I'm out of here...crewing on a timber Van de Stadt 34 this afternoon in a twilight. Should be fun.

She is beautiful in lines and shape and with a pedigree. The photo in your first post does not even make it obviously apparent that she's a woody at all. As fair a hull could be for a wooden full keeler.
Don't give up your Hartley so fast though. You just might enjoy owning the two different boats for a stretch especially if one of them has a very small 'honey-do' list.
I was just out today buying teak for my classic plastic Tartan 27's toe/rub rail. Teak is $20+ a board foot (1" x 12" x 12") where I went but they had a discount bin of 'rippings' or remainders that was $5 a board foot that suited my use. Saved nearly $100 buying their teak scraps instead of full boards! One of the only wood species that was more expensive was Ebony. They had a lot of different wood species but I bet they had little or no Aussie wood varieties here in NY.
Congrats on your new stewardship!

I actually don't know yet.

It's pretty funny - I bought the boat on Tuesday, arranged for her to stay in the pen she's in on Wednesday and yesterday got a call from ParksVic saying there's a mooring available if I want it - I've only been on their waiting list for over 18 months!!

I'm hoping to keep it in the pen and have been told by the Yard Manager that it should be okay..

Yes, you did - and I sent you a pic of the beaming skipperette (now, if only I could get her to take the helm...), but the stemhead fitting is coming out ASAP for re-galvanising, so she won't be going anywhere for a few weeks.

Have fun!!
