    She's a peach. Some other great boats on the broker's website.

    I'd think that a Guzzwell would be a good purchase. I've always had a thing for his 23' sloop design named Dolly.

    Gotta love brokers. The hull has rounded chimes.

    That rings a bell!
    There is nothing quite as permanent as a good temporary repair.

    That is a pretty easy typo - what with them being next to each other.

    I like both that ketch & the Rhodes on his site - if only they didn't have that stupid wood thing right in the way of the companionway - my main beef with a ketch.

    Crusoe was, I think, in one of our magazine's issues years ago. I fell in love with her then. Anybody remember if my memory is correct and if so, what issue was it? She appears to still be well maintained in that image. Glad to see that.

    That isnt an expensive boat to go cruising in.
    And Garret, its centre cockpit. There ...objection gone... see you in Fiji 2019.

    I need another big wood boat...

    Not a center cockpit fan - but I missed that - got swept up by the Rhodes.

    Except that I don't think it has chines. She's a round bilge boat, if you want to go that way.

    It certainly would be nice to put this and the masking tape removal thread together, there's some pretty funny stuff going on with that waterline. I like the boat for a cruiser though.
    If only Lee wasn't fixated on them motorbikes......Buy that( since Garret has decided no), pick up Don K from wherever he's hiding with that lovely double ended child of the forum he built, and sail in company to the islands of the South Pacific via the Sea of Cortez and the Marquesas. Tuamotus, Tahiti, Tonga, Fiji.... Catch up with Jake on Sassafrass! Dave, he's a starter.

    yer not buying a boat y'see, you're buying a lifestyle.....
    Go now , go big ( something like that anyway)

    Trust me - I've already gone 5' bigger than the Guzzwell & it's more boat than I want. However - I also really don't want to sell her. I'd love to cruise the Pacific, but not seeing it in my near future.
