Saw post about buying Allied Seawind II -presently partner in 76 in NJ -great cruising yacht but in close quarters with current and wind best have a lan to include use of spring lines. Anyway we are putting her up for sale /sail as I have moved on to an Islander36 and partner has need to do other stuff. So contact me if can give any insights. Shillelagh09

CalebD Last heard from Ian was around Norfolk, VA.
He went all the way 'outside' SOLO if I understand correctly.
He has updated his 'Crew Wanted' thread here and there and could probably use an extra set of hands for his push south to Miami if you've got the time, inclination and money to get yourself there and back.

Bene505 CalebD helped him with the first part of the trip south. At least I think the picture of CalebD with the Statue Of Liberty in that bachground was on Ian's boat.

I'm wondering how his voyage to Florida is going. (We ought to have a sailnet-loaden GPS trackker on some of these interesting Sailnet poster's boats.)

Hi Ian,

Have you launched yet? I work not far from Glen Cove and live about half way to Montauk.

Bene505 And did you buy Glenn a scotch?

Not surprised you got a great deal, the seller is one of my best friends. Good guy.

(Suggest you change your email in post #5 above, or expect to create a new email for yourself as the spammers find your current one.)

RAGTIMEDON Wish I were closer, I'd love to crew for you. Yes, you were crazy to buy without survey, but crazy is essential when you sail small boats! Yes, you wer lucky to get her in good condition at a great price, but lucky is the man who sails! Well done!

Allied Seawind II

If the boat is basically sound you got an unbeliveable deal, based on the last asking price I saw. In fact, at first I thought it was too low - and probably a scam. You can put 20k into that boat and still be into it for less than asking price for many of these boats. Lucky you. Thanks for the offer to visit but I live about 4,000 miles away. Otherwise I would be right there. Ian, if and when you decide to sell please shoot me an email. I may very well be interested.
