My sabre 34 has been totaled and I have parts for sale. I have a nearly new 135% genoa, 12 volt seafrost refrigeration new this year, fenders, anchors CQR and Danforth with chain+rode, several other parts that may be of interest.

The Sea Frost is the 12 volt BD Series with remote thermostat, and includes 2-ice trays. I just installed it this summer and only used it two weeks, so it is essentially brand new. I bought it for a total cost new of $1500. I will let it go for $1200.
I was not able to remove any winches - they had to go with the boat as part of the salvage settlement.

I unfortunetly hit a rock ledge off the coast of Maine at 6knts.

Major bummer...would you consider starting a tread on the circumstance sof the accident, I'm sure many of us could benefit from hearing how you got out of place.

FWIW... over the past few year I have several times found my boat heading not where I wanted it to be, because I had slipped into navigating via the GPS, confirming for me the fact that the GPS is absolutely no substitue for a paper chart.

That would be a good excercise. My first reaction was stupidty and not looking at the information in front of me on the chart plotter. However, now I feel there were a couple of other reasons.

Hi wemsail, could you provide any additional details on the genoa? Also what year Sabre 34 is it? Sorry to hear of your misfortune...
Thanks,
J

What exactly went wrong when navigating with the GPS?

Well, WEMSAIL seems to cover the bases well here:
http://www.sailnet.com/forums/sabre/58475-how-we-hit-rocks.html

Fundamentally, if you pick a destination on a GPS, you risk not noteing every obstacle between your departure and your destination, due the limitations of the GPS display. Do your naviagation on a chart, use the GPS only to verify location and present course to the next mark.

I too am interested in the Sea Frost. I need a 12v compressor and thermostat. I don't need the cold plate part.

I'm only interested if Sabreman doesn't want it, out of respect for a fellow sailnet member who responded first. (And I'd probably want a better deal than 20% off anyway.)

Sorry to hear about the run-in with a rock ledge. Please don't let it dissuade you from a great sport and community.

Regards,
Brad

Wemsail,

Very sorry to hear of your loss. Is the boat still around, or has it gone away? My need is rather unique, and I hope you can help. My '79 was dinged by the surveyor for failure to have a crash bar in front of the stove. I've seen pictures of other MK-1 34's with this bar. Did yours have one, and can you still get it? And how much?

Thanks,

Harry

Wemsail,

Are you still around? I have a question about how you installed your 12 volt refrigeration.

Regards,
Brad
