I paid $4500 for the boat and the trailer. The trailer is what got me to jump to keep me from paying winter storage fees, plus I can move it to work on it. I think I got a decent deal. Others were interested in it, so I felt I was in the ballpark. The boat seems to be in fine condition, with no major repairs necessary. Save the rudder work.

Plus you can trailer it to different sailing grounds, a big advantage. So once you are comfortable with it you can take it to races where ever they may be, and even take it on a vacation. That is the big advantage of a trailer sailor, is that you can take the boat to the sailing locations, you can take it to the sound in a few hours instead of days! You can camp on it as well. (not much more than a hard tent really but enough for a weekend)

Re: FIRST SAILBOAT! 1978 Pearson Ensign

Thats a pretty good deal on well known and respected boat. With normal maintenance the boat will still be worth that much 10 years from now.

I sail/race on one out of Wickford, not mine but a co workers.

Take her to Saranac Lake (near Lake Placid). Apparently Albert Einstein liked to sail there:

The guy who saved Einstein's life died about four years ago... if he sailed on the road like Danny, it would have not been news...
