    Damn, looks really interesting, though a bit too far away. What can folks tell me about this particular Culler design?

    I always thought of this as one of those 'perfect boats'.

    This is just the kind of thing I would have jumped on a few years ago.

    If Herself concurs (which is a real stretch at present), do we have anyone closeby enough to take a look on my behalf?

    I believe Ian is quite close. Wish I were closer - pretty boat.

    There has never been a more gothic sailboat designed or built. Period.

    Does that help?

    I agree with Mickey. One of my favorite Pete boats, and I like a lot of his boats.

    Peace,
    Good Old Robert

    Thanks folks. I will discuss at home, and we'll see what comes of it.

    Bump. Fingers crossed. And toes, and any other handy appendages.

    Herself and I have come to An Agreement, so we shall see what future unfolds when my trusted spies on the ground can make a report back ...

    Cool! Too bad you wouldn't be bringing it home by way of Vermont. Of course if you want to, you've got an overnight stop available. Maybe visit those obstreperous Montrealers on your way home?

    Ha! It does seem more possible that I may be able to bend an elbow with a couple of Cape Cod based Bilge rats. If the stars align.

    I'd drive to that (if welcome of course).

    I'm on the case. Know where she is.

    I expect to give a full report after communicating with Tom and after he decides whether or not this is the boat of his dreams.

    It is tough isn't it? The excitement of finding and buying a boat is something I have done more times than I can count, and I loved doing it. Now I would just like to get my cat boat in the water and have time to enjoy it.

    I've sailed a Concordia sloop. Initial stability? ... "Not so good" is putting it kindly. Never pushed its limits. [Loose] inside ballast, too -- several hundred pounds of lead pigs IIRC -- so if you do push the limits, it can get dramatically worse very quickly.

    Awfully pretty boat, tho.

    Be interested to see it Steven - I have one (and the owner needs to varnish...).

    I seem to recall that the Landing School built versions added 3" of beam offset initial stability issues in original design.

    Stable or not, we are trying to push forward. Will know within a couple of days. Ian and a friend paid her a visit today, and while there are certainly things to do on her, nothing seems fatal. So we are at the negotiating stage...

    There are two kinds of boaters: those who have run aground, and those who lie about it.
