Hey all -

First time poster here. Looking for (preferrably first hand) info about a rare boat, the Miller 28. Story goes the Miller family built boats on in Washington on Bainbridge Island in the 70-80's. Apparently only 8 of this style boats were built.

Anybody have any first hand info about these boats? Anyone sailed on them before? I'm in a position to pick one up for really cheap, but I don't want to get burned on it. Obviously I'll get it surveyed and go over it with a fine toothed comb, sail it at least once, etc..., but it would be great to have somebody tell of their experience of owning one...

Welcome to Sailnet. I'd highly recommend you read this POST to help you get the most out of sailnet. I'd also recommend you read the Boat Inspection Trip Tips thread I started, as it will help you determine whether the boat is even worth going forward on, saving you the price of a survey if it isn't.

Can't tell you anything about the Miller 28 though, however it was mentioned on the iBoats forum recently.

Thanks for the welcome Sailingdog. I'm planning on running over the boat with a fine tooth comb (including a shakedown cruise) and *then* getting a survey as well.

More information: Apparently Miller 28's were built by the same folks who made Jason 35's. Anyone know anything about those boats?

Miller

I have a Miller 30 (that's what they told me, but could be a 28, I haven't measured). I acquired last June in Bellingham. I don't know much about sailing and am learning. She seems to be in good shape with nice but work wood work in the cabin. Nice lines and rigged for solo. I do have blisters. A bunch of little ones, not big ones.

I am happy to answer any questions.
