1969 Coronado 25, as solid as the day she was built. I'd love to get some paint on her though...

Our Endeavour is a 79 and is in great shape not many changes from when it was new and only a few minor upgrades but nothing that takes away from the clean clasic look.

Our recently purchased Morris Leigh 30 was built in 1981 so .........30 yrs old.

Our old boat was 31 years old (Morris Frances 26) that we had for 26 years.

Both are still well kept beautiful boats with many years left in them!

My recently purchased boat is a 1980 I like the older boats really if I could have gotten the 1960s alberg I wanted it would be even older. lol The lines are just better.

Oh, why not..

Our boat is a custom design 30' auxillary sloop launched into the waters of Sydney Harbour on 15 February 1950... but the mast is only 54 years old.
