Smile Former Samson C-Mist sailor

Hi all,

Over the years, I've owned 3 sailboats: one wood, one fiberglass, but the best in my opinion was the ferrocement Samson C-Mist.

I sold the C-Mist about 10 years ago, but I'm now retired with the time to sail and maintain a boat, and wish I had her back (or one in as good a condition).

I've looked at some nice fiberglass boats, but they're just not the same, so the search goes on.

If anyone on this forum knows the whereabouts of the Samson C-Mist sailboat "Serenity III" registed in Victoria, BC Canada, I would like to know the condition of the boat, and if the current owner is interested in selling.

Thanks,
Rick.

Re: Former Samson C-Mist sailor

Although I 've never been around Ferro-cement craft , I would think you should have a good chance of finding it as I would guess she is as solid as a rock ,no rot or blister problems! So if she stayed away from the storms. it's just a matter of keeping it in the public eye and she should show up! lots of luck!...Dale

Re: Former Samson C-Mist sailor

Greetings to former and want-to-be Samson C-mist owners:

I thought I was the lone ranger--it's good to know there are others out there!
I'm the happy owner of a Samson C-mist, Aldebaran, and have been since 1976.

It's been a long drawn-out love affair and she's never let me down. No leaks, no runs, no errors. I bought the hull from another home builder who ran out of steam on the project. The hull was built at a do-it-yourself ferro boats boatyard in Savage, Maryland, which no longer exists. I finished it from the hull with a little help from professionals at key points along the way.

It's under-powered with a Volvo MD-11C 2 cylinder diesel that is nevertheless very reliable. My wife Robbie and I are getting on in age and thinking of going to the dark side (trawler) or twilight side (motor sailer) so I'll probably be putting
Aldebaran up for sale. Hopefully to a young fool that wants to go ocean sailing!

Thanks for Sailnet.

Adios, Ed Sabin in Maryland

Welcome to SailNet. I hope you find her and are able to get her back.
