I bought a Alcort Sunfish with trailer for $25 complete with everything. Bought a new sail, lines and refinished the daggerboard and rudder. Sold it for $1650. Took the money and bought a Pearson 26 for a grand.

I'll give you a holler when I get back to the states. I'm going to use a bunch of the extra for a series drogue or sea anchor, but I should have some left over.

Dumpster diving at the end of the season a few years ago yielded four trashed dodgers from various sized powerboats and part of a cockpit enclosure from yet another boat. Laid out the pieces of isinglass that weren't too wrecked; made a template for our cockpit out of 2-mil plastic dropcloth from Home Depot; and cobbled-together an enclosure for our boat - not good enough visibility to travel the ICW with, but more than ample to keep us warmly enclosed over 4-5 Chesapeake winters. Total cash outlay for a few pieces of Sunbrella to bridge some gaps and misc. grommets and zippers = $119. Canvasman's bid to build an enclosure for our boat = $4,000.

When will you be getting back? I need to get re-rigged in the next two or three weeks.

I managed to recieved a pair of these 2.5" diameter SS pipe davits for $100.

A pipefitter brother of a friend "whipped them up" in his garage during a Sunday afternoon.

I got an excellent condition Astra IIIB sextant on Craigslist for $100.

I'm back on March 5th. Shoot me a PM if you still need some then.



As usual, I am jealous of some of these deals. I'm buying a new dinghy and motor in March, so with any luck I'll have another one to post in this thread. But like I said before, these deals always seem so far and few between so I'm not holding my breath. We'll see how it goes.
