    You know, it is probably a good thing I am 3000 miles away.

    Looks a lot like a Ralph Stanley built boat.
    Simpler is better, except when complicated looks really cool.

    A sloop schooner? Aren't those terms mutually exclusive? I see spots for 2 masts, so I'm betting a "friendship-like schooner" - but neat looking boat & not a bad price!

    A well evolved wee ship. But there are so many things I would change before even taking her to Bermuda, never mind around the world.

    Not one of Ralph's, so far as I know. I don't have the book in front of me, but I know his roster pretty well. She's nice looking, though. Definitely a Friendship sloop-style hull.

    Oh yes, indeedy.

    Very pretty, and almost a give away price.

    Hope someone adopts her before the fresh water gets to her.

    Interesting idea having Cap't Jim sell (or merely advertise?) her. He updates his CL postings regularly. I'll be going by his place next week. It doesn't look like the boat is in is yard.

    The guy who's listed it in the CL ad. See the link in the OP. He's got a marine salvage place in Portland, Maine: http://www.marinesalvagemaine.com/

    Wow. Very fine looking boat. Just what 'someone' out there needs.
