Re: Inboard motors

There are several (many?) 30 footers that have circumnavigated, and plenty of decent coastal cruisers in that range. Up to about 36-37 can be single handed fairly easily. Bigger than that and...

One of those old fashioned plungers with the center drilled out, a leftover piece of copper tubing jammed in and ducttaped to a length of garden hose. Drop that into a kiddie pool full of water with...

One thing to look at that would say that price is more than fair is if he upgraded the winches to self tailing along the way. Those weren't standard in 1974, I don't believe. The cost of...

Re: Are NADA Values accurate ?

My parents sold their similarly kept and professionally maintained (ie - my father wanted to sail and had no interest in maintaining, but knew the value of doing it) 1984 for that exact price 7 years...

Re: Choosing the right metal

That looks like a P35 centerboard. Mine (and all the other ones I've seen) are in stainless. I'd replace in kind, and it will outlive you, most likely. Figure on doing it again in 30 years if you...

Re: Wood identification?

Re: Can anyone give me a valid reason to carry a firearm?
