One thing to consider is whether the marina rents their slips by the size of the slip itself or by the actual measurement of the boat.

My boat is listed as 27' but with the bowsprit, it is 30' and I also have a wind vane that brings it to 32/33'. I did measure it myself just to get an idea of total length.

Re: "Free boat" seaworthiness

there is obviously a lot to learn about marinas. I am used to trailering. this is a new world, for me.

it's kind of like the idea of joining a yacht club. I am the least likely person you would see in a yacht club. think biker/pirate/Viking. lol.

I guess I've never been a social sailor. I mean, I talk to people, when i'm getting my boats set up or ready to leave. you'll exchange a few words as you sail by. i will lend a hand, while they are at the dock. I have saved a few people's butts. i actually sailed beside one family while i told them how to sail. that's a funny story. but I've never hung out with the sailing community.

so, except for people that know me from sailing at Marburg ( and their just people i am acquainted with, not really fiends i hang out with), i don't have any sailing friends.

guess i need to work on that a little.

Re: "Free boat" seaworthiness

he actually did send me the HIN : "Here is only number MDZ44432B075 model is listed as fiberglass. It was built by a local builder who only built 5-10 it is referred to as a Chesapeake in an article.

Hope that is what you need."

so, there it is. now to look it up. why did that take so bloody long?

so it's a 75. waiting for the site to open up to check the MIC ( key mouse lol).
MDZ is Maryland homemade boats
and i can't find anything with that info....

You think it is this boat known as a Chesapeake 20'?

YCs are not anything like you may be thinking. Unless you are into the Big ones like Annapolis YC. all the clubs on the river here are pretty down to earth. No ascots and caps LOL

no. already beat my head against the wall looking for Chesapeake boats on that site.

the chesapeake 20 is a centerboard day sailor ad too short. this boat is a 24' keel boat.
there is a Chesapeake 30 which is 24' LWL. it's a keel boat but it has a motor. this boat has an outboard bolted to the stern. the Chesapeake 30 is the same as the seidelmann 30. there is a seidelmann 25 but it's not related to the Chesapeake name. also, i looked that stuff up before i had a picture. now that i have seen the picture, it looks nothing like any of those boats.

It does float by the way.
Jacko - if I were in your flip-flops I'd take this boat in a heartbeat over that other piece of crap.
