I have always liked these boats and consider them one of the best designs of this size, (normal) price and era. I would suggest that you explain more about the work that is needed and also explain what you know about replacing the centerboard. (In my experience with these boats, they do not sail all that well without their centerboards).

Respectfully,
Jeff

Thank you for the advise, Jeff. I have read many of your posts and have great respect for your experience.
I have only known this boat without the pendant, so I cannot tell the difference, but really do enjoy sailing her and rarely have noticed lacking the centerboard. I am able to sail the ICW around St. Augustine, out the inlet and even under the Bridge of Lions under sail alone (mostly).
As to needed work, well, the interior has been partly dismantled, but the berths, and galley are intact. I figured for the money, what do you expect? but some local who wanted to purchase her balked at needed repairs.

I agree that a $2000 price for one of these boats would be a real bargain assuming the hull, rig and engine were essentially intact and repairable. If the centerboard is in the boat, but just isn't operable, then the repairs shouldn't be all that bad.

People often come to SailNet looking for inexpensive project boats that are suitable for distance cruisers. I always suggest that they start with a boat that began life as a good design which was well constructed. Certainly a boat like yours would be the poster child for a good design which was well constructed.

Hopefully you will find the right person to take her off your hands. Also, thank you for your kind words.

Regards,
Jeff

So a buyer wants the boat delivered to Sarasota. Anyone know what kind of trip that is from St Augustine?

It's about 240 miles via land, and a lot longer via water—probably close to 750 nm if you go around Florida. Also, the oil spill presents a problem with taking it via the water, as you may run into it...

However, there is the Okeechobee Waterway, which cuts across Florida from Ft. Myers to Stuart (west to east), and cuts about 250 NM from the trip.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Unless you have a very reliable engine I would not want to take the canal across. I would suggest that you plan on cruising around the outside to Sarasota. Assuming you are right about the centerboard not affecting performance much, you should be able to make the trip in a series of comparatively short hops in three weeks or or so.

Trip inland

Oh .my! I trust the engine, but had no idea it was that long. Took 4 days to go from Ft. Lauderdale to St. Augustine when I bought her.
Obviously I passed on that buyer. Found a nice young man who wants to fix it up who lives locally, so now the Tartan has a new owner. Unbelievable the number of responses I did receive.
