New Guy.

this is my first post, I think, so what's up everybody.

I have little sailing experience except for when I was young. Been wanting to get a boat for a while now. A friend of a friend has a boat he's willing to basically give away so I just wanted to get some opinions on it. It is a Grampain 22'. The owner does not know the year but says the hull number is 35 or 73 but definitely under 100. I have not seen it yet, but he says in needs some work although not much. It come with most of the gear, like sails, 15hp outboard, trailer etc. I've tried to look up info on these boats but they have a weird history and its confusing. ANy info into what I might be getting myself into would be amazing.


cheers.

hey bud welcome to sailnet. ive got a G30. check out the grampianowners.com site, and be advised if you need parts holland marine out of Canada still stocks Grampian parts...
hollandmarine.com

hope this is a bit of a start for ya, ive got hull number 75.

there is the 22 inventory, there will probably not be an HIN persay, but you will probably find a plate under the companionway with two numbers, ie mine is 30 75, meaning 30' LOA hull #=75.
you will hear conflicting stories on these boats... ranging from 'piggish in light winds' (too true for mine... ) to 'they were some of the first fiberglass boats hence they were 'overbuilt' as they didnt know how much glass to lay, so they are tanks and will float forever.' I would def. check it out before i committed. ive got a line on sig. newer cat 22's but, you would probably be spending more money.
oh, the bio on Jim Bisiker and Alex Mcgruer and the history of G marine (and their connection to the O'Day) line is pretty cool and can be found on the Gowners site. Linky here:
HISTORY OF GRAMPIAN MARINE
good luck, if i can help at all let me know.

oh, and heck, if the trailer is in decent shape it might alone be worth the price of 'all most give it to me,'--im not sure what that means $ wise--and you could always part out the boat and pay the nominal disposal fee... though your buddy might not appreciate that. im an hour north of the metroplex, so dont hesitate to PM me if i can help

regards,
