Will this float?

I was gonna offer $1200 on this, but I don't want to offend. Comments, please

1999 sailboat FORSALE OR TRADE FOR QUAD OR WVERUNNER





I LMAO'd and threw up in my mouth at the same time when I came across this today. At least all necessary replacement and maintenance parts are available at Home Depot.

Re: Will this float?

Looks like a sharpie. and lee boards on the outside. (pretty common in Denmark) Should draft maybe 4" when fully loaded. Love the home made tabernacle. No it's not pretty.

Re: Will this float?

Some are quite lovely. that one could be redesigned with a graceful bow instead of the "cut off look"

Re: Will this float?

Pretty sure that is a Phil Bolger design, ask him if he has the plans? If it is built to plan it will sail reasonably well.

BTW the trailer is worth $1200 or more if the brakes work

Re: Will this float?

I believe it is one of these: Puddle Duck Racer - Easiest Sailboat to Build and Race

There is a group of folks who sail those things in the Texas 200. This is a good read: http://smallcraftadvisor.com/our-blo...8#comment-2230

Re: Will this float?

The photos Bubs posted may be of a well-known boat, but there is nothing attractive about it.
