    I would take that in a heartbeat. I could not see any broken ribs in the pic and the lines are sweet. I wonder if he would hold it for me until the end of the month when I will be passing through on my way to Mystic?
    Update, I sent him an email asking... hey, you never know.

    Oh, I'm not holding my breath.... well, yes I am, but with no real expectation of any positive response. Not sure I would if the shoe were on the t'other foot, but strange things do happen. I wonder if it every had floorboards, and I can just picture what the stern sheets should look like, and I really want to be the one to put it in...

    Even if it never had floor boards I put them in. Walking on the ribs and planking isn't such great idea.

    I'm glad I shared the link. I certainly hope it goes back into the water and not onto the ceiling of a bar.
    Please report if any of you see it.

    Finally got a response to my emails: "Sorry, boat sold."
    We can stop dreaming.

    I received the same reply "Sorry, boat sold". I hope it sees the water too. I even indicated that I would be restoring it and not using it as a "decoration".

    I hope hope the buyer treats it right.

    The occasional good buy on CL requires an offer to come pick it up today.

    It will always be, the one that got away... I have missed a good many of those on our VT CL, but caught a few good ones. Maybe the best was my 1910 Power Dory.

    Was the seller a guy named Dave, by any chance?

    (I think I recognize that shop in the photo, but not sure and it's bugging me)

    Yah but it was noon when you posted here that you sent your email. Someone was probably at the house by then loading it up.

    Yep,... you are probably right (I didn’t see it until I saw it here & sent an email right away).
    A beautiful boat,... a real miss. I just hope she’s treated right.
