    Default 20' flush deck cutter, Connecticut CL

    If I had a dollar for every girl who found me unattractive, eventually they would find me attractive.

    Izzat a Blue Moon sans mizzen? Seems about the right size, shape, and style.

    It looks longer, perhaps 25 foot ? A Vertue or similar ?

    The raised decker looks Blue Moon-ish, though missing boomkin and coach house too small. Maybe a Crocker? The other one looks a lot like a Frisco Flyer.

    The 1950s produced a lot of designs with strong similarities .

    Did you have to!! Pretty little cutter,..... and only about 15 minutes from me.

    I can’t even think about it. However, if anyone would like a first hand report about her I would be more than glad to go check her out.

    Could be a worthwhile project. And "best offer" ain't a bad price. Well restored, that's one of the best looking pocket cruisers there is.

    Dear NedL,

    I have blue moon replica in Istanbul. This boat, builded according to original plan. Some detailed photo can be so valuable for me. If possible...

    Thank you.

    When i was a young bloke, the SCOD (South Coast One Design), was the more affordable alternative to a Vertue. Seen a few on my travels, just as able, good heavy weather boat.

    This is the type of boat I fell in love with 40 years ago. But as my sailing is mostly in thin waters I sail now a catamaran or centerboarder. The pictures still make my pulse quicker. Frank

    I’ve been preparing to build one. Really. Seems it would be easier to drive forth and back, eh?
    If you’re inclined to go poking for fun, a report would be valued.

    Pictures of boats taken by boat people are always better.

    Peace,

    Bill of sale only, which might be a problem where you live. Would be where I live (MA).

    I think it's an Arthur Robb design built by Cheoy Lee.

    It could even be the original Blue Moon, which had that paint scheme and fell on hard times.

    Not much of a problem in PA with the boat. You can file an affidavit that the title is unobtainable to get a new title from the Fish and Boat Commission.

    Actually much harder to get a new title on the trailer. You need to show it was salvaged and rebuilt, then get an enhanced inspection for a rebuilt trailer. And for that trailer, it looks like it might be worth the hassle.

    She was at the Center for Wooden Boats for a long time, but they sold her.

    Dunno nowt about register issues, but agree that trailer looks like it would be worth some paper chasing......the boat on it too if possible. Save you some time McDoodleman! How does that title stuff work on imported boats? Could you export and re-import and not have title issues if it had been registered abroad for example?

    Oh, aye. That’s the little boat to take us to the Azores to see “home”. Since I’d already be almost all the way there, I suppose I’d have to detour a bit and visit you, too, eh?

    I can meet you halfway.......that 8 days gets me to the Azores.....if i jump from NW Spain. I would spare you the madness of the English channel. But if you go North-about around Scotland to Norway, you probably would not regret it......at least in the summer.

    Deal! Well meet in the Azores, picnic on the farm great grandma was born (my wife’s side. I am unsure exactly where my father’s father lived.).
    Then, we can sail “together” up and over.

    I need to stop for visits in Ireland and Sweden while there, since I’ll be in the neighborhood.

    Life is not long enough...

    I shall be heading south for grilled sardines and vino tinto rather than rotten herring. Seriously, the trailable motor sailer is so i can be dumped at Norway-Russian border, then work my way West and South, thats more like a retirement plan that will take a good few seasons to accomplish. If we cant do it, we can always dream about it......
