.....that Shark 24 looks very nice along with Jones "Cranky". Ive never seen either in the flesh. Love looking at another mans posessions, especially when they look real nice and well taken care of !! Good job!

I have never seen another Siren that looks as nice as "Cranky." She has had a ton of work invested. I'd love to take credit, but she belongs to another Dock Sixer. Word on the street is that Cranky may be coming up for sale, as the owners have bought a Siren's big sister, a Sirius 22.
Speaking of which:

Sirius 21/22:


Tanzer 22:

When you see one you like, don't be afraid to take a look or knock on doors. You'd be surprised how many folk are thinking of parting with the "old girl" in the driveway. You'd be even more surprised at the prices they go for. If you're in Rhode Island, there are plenty of small boats on the eastern seaboard that go for reasonable prices. You sound like you have the desire, all you need is time.

As to the original intent of the thread:

Easily one of the finest, saltiest pocket cruisers to sail where ever your heart takes you can be seen here: http://www.samlmorse.com/?a=fc_home.
There is one a few slips down from me and unfortunately is becoming one of those abandoned, never used boats. Five years ago the owner splashed her but never put up the mast. Some of the turnbuckles are hanging in the water and are destroyed. A sad state of affairs.
It is an intriguing little boat.
