Sandpiper 32

Hello all, Long time sailor who just sold my 35 ft, 1961 wooden mast head sloop, which we sailed for thirty years. We've bought a 1978 Sandpiper 32 cat schooner, fiberglass and on a trailer. Big change but I've been enamoured with Com. Munroe's presto boats for years and now I can find out what they're all about. If anyone out there is familiar with these boats, I'd love to chat with you. Thanks.

Re: Sandpiper 32

Sorry, no experience, but I share your interests in the Commodore and Presto. How do you like her so far? Any 'sea stories' you'd like to tell?

Re: Sandpiper 32

Just taking delivery this week. She needs some work and I'd like to go thru her, so no sailing till next summer. Most of my sailing friends think I'm crazy, what, no keel!? I think I'm going to like my "good little ship".

If you have Reuel Parker's "The Sharpie Book", let them read his collection of 'Presto' stories, or loan them "The Commodore's Story". Are there many places up there in the frozen north where your shoal draft gets you into gunkholes they daren't try? And of course you can laugh all the way to the bank when you start waltzing past them in unofficial scratch races. Tuning her up should be fun.

Any plans to come down here to South Florida, cruise the Commodore's old stomping -er, sailing grounds? His home, The Barnacle, is a State Park, and they've repaired the hurricane damage it suffered.

Sailnetters like repair threads, especially with lots of pictures. If you need help or opinions, just ask,- there are very knowledgeable and opinionated folk here who are happy to help.
