Ahoy!

Hello everyone, I'm new to this site and I'm hoping to get some insight. There seems to be years of combine experience here. I'm in the process of purchasing a 100 foot wooden tall ship and would like to find some people who may know more about how to rig it and sail her better than I. I am not sure how many people are necessary to sail it either. I'm looking for a marina that allows liveaboard as I finish the boats remodeling. Any advice would be helpful.

Wow, you bought a 100 foot wooden tall ship and now you have to figure out how to sail it? Cool! This makes things a lot easier for me, and how annoyed my wife still is with me, that I brought home a 16 foot sailing dinghy on a trailer and parked it in the driveway.

I look forward to seeing the photos.

Re: Ahoy!

In a companion thread, it seems itís been identified as a dilapidated ferrocement schooner, with no mast or rudder. The plan is to restore and operate it as an AirBnB.

Iím guessing itís this one.

I hate to step on a dream, but these are seriously long odds and not very rational.

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.

A ferrocement boat, built in 1904? Aren't ferro-cement boats known for rusting from the inside out, after thirty years, until chunks of cement start crumbling off?

This one apparently is dismasted? The OP said that his boat has rigging and he wants to know how to work it and how to sail it. This may not be the same boat.
