mitiempo will become famous soon enough mitiempo will become famous soon enough
The Thompson T-24 is a very worthy small boat. Here's a link to a review of one if you haven't seen it. Design*1969*Journal - VADS: the online resource for visual arts
Tony Skidmore, now a retired surveyor, sailed a T-24 from England to Victoria in the around 1969 - 1971. He later sailed Lorna Doone, a Vega 27 all the way around after he retired.
Of course the lower the price the more work required probably, but if it is in reasonable shape it is a good find.
Good luck.

mitiempo the boat is in good condition (surprising)
This boat looks way biger then it is, no its bigger then it should be. I really thot it was a 28-30 footer at first, when I asked what kind of boat it is, the gent said oh its a thompson 24, what? this boat is a 24ft

my deal want off with the ericson 27, but this baby and I am sure is roomier, it looks very comfortable, everything about it says bring me to sea!!

I cant belive my first boat will be this baby, and I feel as if she chosed me not the other way. do I look exited

Hi jobi, congrats on your purchase - I recently bought one of these and I'm quite happy with it although the deck and rest of woodwork was in pretty poor state so I've being doing quite a lot of work on it. It's also quite fast for its size. Do you have any pics of the boat or any manuals that you could send over as I'm missing the paperwork?

well looks like we have lots in common!
my boat to has no paperwork.
my boat to need way more work then what I first belived, in fact I find new rutt every day.
The problem is not all the rebuilding or the expences, nope the real problem is this boat is so darn nice I cant think of owning any other boat, and this kills me as I cauld get many boats in exelent conditions for less.

This being said hers her ugly side!!!

Thanks for the pics jobi. It sure looks like it needs a bit of TLC but I can't see any rot which is definitely good. I've been logging my refit progress on a blog, let me know if you want to take a look

anpgr thanks for the lingk and graphicks.
sins I have limited access to internet today was the first time I cauld read your blog. very interesting read.

I can see that tig a ling needed much more work the avian way needs, I was a little discouraged at first, but in truth thers nothing to complain aboute.

hopfully we can keep in touch as I travel across asia with her next year.
I am a herpetologist specialising with indoniesian reptiles, I optained this boat as a home when sailing the many islands of the moluccan sea. iv invested 25 years to theseanimals alredy, now ready to invest 20 more this time on location.
cheers
