    Default Exceptional boat in Plattsburgh


    I have no interest in this boat. I have Mull Hull 1 and speak highly of this vessel.

    Super boat for a steal.
    https://www.pointseast.com/buy-a-sailboat/

    30' Cold-Molded Sailboat
    Gary Mull cold molded sailboat ' Lickity Split'. Full set of sails (two brand new), all rigging and trailer. Inboard low hour Volvo Penta 2000 engine and folding prop. In need of loving restoration. Located in Plattsburgh, NY on Lake Champlain. Asking $3,000 or best offer.


    if I lived closer I would buy her. I know a bit about her builder, quality. Feel free to pm me if you have questions.

    video was shot 5 years ago. You can see the potential of her hull and grace.

    It also has Ron Holland all over it who worked as Mull apprentice who help draw the lines and work out the strong innovative hull design. Strip planking layup was top notch. Hank Eason was the talented builder - a real legend here in San Francisco. These boats were built for the St. Francis Yacht club in the early 70s.

    Do you think that is the original rudder?

    Someone will get a total steal with this boat.

    Plattsburgh is about an hour away from me. If someone is seriously interested, let me know & I'll see about taking a look.

    the rudder appears to be an update. A few boats changed the rudder. The original rudder on mine failed during its wins in the SORC causing a redesign. These boats were quite advanced in many ways. Mull stuck with the basic hull design and moved rudder for many of race boat evolutions to eventually to hang off stern.

    Here is Pretty Penny, a sister of Lickety Split which is currently for sale by Bruce, friend of mine. He loves these boats so much he has 2. This maybe hull 2. Lickety Split I think is Hull 4.

    Here is Bruce and friends racing his other Mull 30, Shadow. The boat rates 150 but consistently beats boats who rate closer to 130 boat for boat.

    Nice offer.

    if the boat is still around in March - I am coming to look at it. This is a boat I would partner up on with serious east coast intentions. I would make the time to work on, prepare and race her come next season with friends. Leaving her in care for those who would use her as she was intended. It would be far easier to do this than bring my current Mull across the country.

    Dang Ted, you sound very serious about this. What racing would you do with her?

    wouldn't that be fun! I’d be wiser and cleaner in approach and restoration. Seeing the boat on a trailer would make the project easier to scope and do. In a day dream, I would be set up wth work van and being able to live in boat -within a few weeks she would be class ready. After a summer, a jewel.

    It would depend on the trailer. I could imagine doing the Mac on her as well as maybe Bermuda. Between the two boats plus my friends, the options would be wide open. Sadly, she would not qualify for Panerai classic races due her construction (strip plank) but other ones would be a blast. The boat would spook a lot of J boats and smoke a few Morris in her class.

    You probably already know this, but come March, the boat may well be buried in 3-4 ft. of snow. Around here you cannot count on the snow being gone until May - though some years it might be late April.

    I'd also count on 4 new tires & wheel bearings all around. Probably lights too.

    Getting her sailing on Lake Champlain could work out well. There's a ton of good sailing here + some races you might be able to join for tune-ups.

    Does Noah still race his boat? She was a beauty.

    Dunno. I don't know Noah well, but I'll ask my brother next time we talk. I seem to recall he may have sold it - but I could be completely wrong.

    it looks like a wonderful place to iron out the boat. summer there would be quite dreamy. I have a couple of ignorant questions about the area. I never been on that side of the lake.

    As for storage - what are the options like there or would I be wiser to move it closer to more active yards and resources. In a related question -what are the local yards and facilities like around there? How friendly and could a guy live in the yard on boat to expedite working on boat?

    Can you sail up the lake and get past Montreal without taking down the rig?

    So many more questions to feed this silly dream.

    I don't know the yards in Plattsburg, but most yards around here allow owners to work on their boats. Some are not big fans of wood boats + others require a mooring/dock to be rented for the summer to allow work. Plattsburg/Cumberland Head has a # of yards I've heard.

    Stick has to come down to get to Montreal (route is via the Richelieu Canal - to Sorel - then down the St Lawrence to Montreal) - I think the max height allowed is about 15 ft.

    Quick story: I was helping friends bring a 70 ft schooner down the canal into the lake (it had to go diagonally in a few locks). I was at the wheel on one stretch & cracked up. The skipper came up & asked what was going on & my reply was "I'm at the helm of a schooner & am looking down at cows!". He laughed too. There's a stretch where the canal goes along a hillside about 50' in altitude, 1/4 mile in distance above the river.

    I live in Essex NY, about 35 miles south of Plattsburgh and while I don't know the policies of each yard around there, I've been through most of them boat shopping. Plattsburgh itself has a large yard that is quite busy and not likely to be a good summer work spot. Just to the north are a few good sized yards, Treadwell Bay and Mooney Bay that might work well. There are a few more on the way to the border, which is about 40 miles north of Plattsburgh. A couple of large yards in Rouses Point which is the border town. Its pretty loose around here as its rural and not many people to enforce anything. so I'd guess you could make it work. I'd think that at least half of the boats are Canadians , more so as you head north. To the south, there's a yard around Valcour island and a few in Willsboro, which is close to me. It warms up fairly quickly up here, seems we go straight from winter to summer a lot. I'm boatless now, but I used to put my boats in in April, an occasional snow, but for the most part, its outside working weather.

    Be glad to help you out if you need a resource. I'm up in Plattsburgh once a week or so for chores. Do you know where it is?

    That is a great deal for a boat. I'm not that far away either. Tempted, but I'm in a 'small boat' phase of life.
    I was born on a wooden boat that I built myself.

    Sounds like Frost is the man on the scene. Certainly closer than I am, but I'm happy to do whatever I can.

    BTW - Essex is a beautiful town!
