Buy this boat and get a free bowl of soup...

Custom Made Sailboat

I joke but for all that think you need a $100K boat to go sailing just look at what can be done. It may not be my idea of attractive but I bet the builder thinks she's gorgeous!!!!

Re: Here is a classic to be....

FINALLY, the long-sought Bluewater Cruiser for under $10K has been found...

Well, I guess we now know where Chris White and Gunboat stole their idea of the forward cockpit from...

And, with a vertical tiller system, no less... Making it forward facing could be one way to make that setup a bit more intuitive, I suppose...

UFB...

Re: Here is a classic to be....

Umm. I'm not too attached to part out.
Let's see, new Yanmar with saildrive, trailer, two big coolers.....
Of course, I'm the schmuck without a boat this year.
Writing this from the food court at a mall while the sun is out, the wind is fantastic and I'm off today.

Yeah, well - I bet it also sails like an absolute piece of crap...

Insert Ted Turner's classic remark to Brit Chance here... :-)

Re: Here is a classic to be....

It says something when the advert lauds the trailer as beautiful but suggests the boat itself is only worthwhile for parts.

Anyone else think that maybe the prop leg is a tadge short ?

Re: Here is a classic to be....

Where do you suppose I could get a copy of the plans for that boat? It looks like the perfect boat for a contrarian. I thought I would have to sign up for the Westlawn courses to have a better understanding of boat design but after seeing this I believe that boat design has reached it's pinnacle. I can just imagine the sensation that one would get close hauled in a fresh breeze.....

Yeah, I wondered about that as well...

The height of that engine above the waterline is pretty excessive, wouldn't surprise me if it needed an electric fuel pump to assist in drawing fuel from wherever the tank is located...

Re: Here is a classic to be....

Looks like Contrarian may well have found both his boat and his car in the same thread. How good is that ?
