1970 Newport 27 built like a tank. Original Atomic 4. After 43 (yes FORTY-THREE) years still a great boat and we enjoy it about every weekend. Bought for $3500 with trailer two years ago and put maybe two grand in it since then.
Worth every penny and would do it again any day and twice on Sundays.

I live on Tulare Beach just south of Kayak Point. I have a mooring in front of my shack. Feel free to use it anytime you like.

It would be fun to meet you.
PM me if you want to stop by some time. You could hang on my mooring overnight and get used to the boat.

It's ours!!!!!!!

Hey All,

The lab report fro the oil couldn't have been any better. We close tomorrow! We'll have it for the weekend. First thing Saturday morning we have to motor over to our new (temporary) slip in Anacortes, WA, then in 3 weeks, it's down to our home port of Everett. Will take some pictures Saturday. Thanks everyone for the words of encouragement.

Re: New Old Boat

When I bought my 1968 Hinterhoeller 28-footer 3 years ago, the surveyor just kept shaking his head and muttering "wow, they really knew how to build them back then" or words to that effect. Sure, I had a punchlist of upgrade and repair work to be done, but knowing the boat had good bones gave me the confidence to invest another few grand and many (mostly fun) hours.

Another resource I highly recommend is Good Old Boat magazine. They sell back issues on CD and their issues are chock full of ideas for repairing and upgrading older sailboats. Their advertisers may be valuable sources for your refit needs too.

Congrats! I think you'll love the Allmand. She's not as svelt and fast as some others out there, but very comfy.

They don't build the like they used to. The mighty PERRYWINKLE was built in 1978 with a sail drive and everything was still skookum when I sold is 6 mos ago.
