They're great boats. I used to own hull # 218. I bought it as my first boat after a family friend was willing to sell it very cheap. It was also very rough. Over a couple of years (most of which it was also sailing), I recored and repainted it, replaced and renewed brightwork, painted the interior, overhauled the motor and many other small projects.

During Katrina, in 2005, an Islander 36 landed on starboard side of the boat. Otherwise, she would have made it through unscathed. Even with the Islander, she was the only boat on her pier to sail again. The Islander crushed the toerail and caused some other deck damage and snapped all of the stbd lines. However, it pinned the boat againt the port pilings and that, along with the one remaining port stern line (out of 10 lines set), kept the boat in the slip.

I repaired the deck damage, but never got to repainting the hull (the damage there was limited to the paint) as yard availability after storm was hard to get. I sold it and, shortly thereafter, bought my J/30 as I was ready to race my own boat after years of OPB.

I HIGHLY recommend (actually, I demand) that you register at the Plastic Classic Forum:

Amazingly tough boats, indeed. I joined a Triton partnership 11 years ago as a "sweat equity" partner for hull #512, Astarte. Like Jason, over those years recoring and repainting the foredeck and cabin top, refairing and repainting the hull after blister repair (yes, even 40 yr old boats got them) with barrier coat and ablative bottom paint, combined with new running rigging (all controls to cockpit), new sails and a boom vang added close to 2 knots of boat speed.We decided to keep the original Atomic 4 gasoline engine, and after a very intense cleaning, flushing and rebuilding fuel, oil, water pumps, and carburetor, new plugs and wires along with installation of an electronic ignition system, she runs like a dream. Posted some photos of the "new" old boat.

Post My father's triton #434

Hi Fans of the Triton,

During the 1960s my father owned #434. For a 10 minute multimedia presentation go to my website's home page (S. I. Inc.) and click on the link that says "sailing resume." The Triton part is in the middle.

I tried to post a picture of the boat but the "upload failed."

Cheers,

Bob

I've been keeping an eye on hull #1 currently going through renovation at Finger Lakes Sailing Service in Ithaca, NY.

Came really close to buying a yawl version . . . but THE ADMIRAL demanded more room.

Post Got pictures working. Triton #434

Hi Triton Fans,

I have figured out how to get a picture to display from my website. Here is my father's boat circa 1960. The picture was taken on Raritan Bay not far from the Raritan Yacht Club where we were members.

Cheers,

Bob
