For the last few months, I've been missing the ocean badly, and wondering how I could get back on the bay. Yesterday, a fan gave me a 27 foot sailboat, free of charge! All I have to do is clean it up. Pene Azul says he will post the photo I sent him. Thanks Jeff.


This'll open the photo in a new window

Kendall, you know there is no such thing as a free boat. It's like a puppy. You have to take care of it, keep it clean, make it behave, give it a place to stay when you are away, pay for insurance, etc.

Anyway, congratulations and fair winds.

Here's rooting for ya, Skipper!! I just got as similar deal from a guy who can't find the time to maintain his 21-foot Capri -- if I dive the bottom and clean up topsides, I can use it at will and he'll pay the slip fees. Sounds like a fair deal to me!! I can't wait to get her spruced up -- she's been ignored for over a year and the local gulls have taken to storing their fishheads on her....but she's sound underneath!!

She was built in Holland, fibreglass, fixed keel, 27 feet on deck, 24 on the waterline. She is a sloop, sound as a dollar (a pre Bush dollar). The engine is an abomination, a two cylinder inboard made in Denmark.
She is filthy, full of leaves, spiders and plain old everyday crud. The engine turns over, which is a very big thing. I was not looking forward to rebuilding another engine. The last one I did was a 1940 LaSalle V/8. Heavy as a bucket of hog's liver.
Anyone know where I can get parts(if needed) for an old MARSTAL marine engine? it is old, runs on a magneto.

You may have done this already but check to see whether there is a web site for the engine. If not, you might try an outboard mechanic to see whether he can cobble up a new magneto. [Obviously, I mean a real mechanic, not a black boxer.] If the engine is really shot, you might consider converting to a small diesel, even though the conversion costs are rather high.

Of course, you could always sail off a mooring and forget about having an engine.

Skipper....I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but I have checked her out, and by the cut of her it is plain she is sufferin'......the poor creature has been relocated from her native Great Lakes and is longin' for home. Because I am a generous sort, I can take her off'n your hands and return this great beastie back to where she belongs. I, in the spirit of generosity and friendship, would be responsible for her perpetual care and well being. Off course my kids would do the actual work, as I cannot endanger my status as a Founding partner in Lane, Fielding, Patterson and Swan. But I would be happy to do all the lounging on beautiful days.

Let me know when I can pick her up.

Hi Kendall, she looks great - wish my boat looked as clean - don't think that you've told us her name yet though.

I don't think you actually said that the magneto was non-working did you. If it works OK and you can in hand crank it then you don't need to use a battery to start the engine as you would with coil ignition. If it is u/s, then provided that the points still open and close OK, it's usually reasonably simple to install a car ignition coil and capacitor. Mind you anyone who can charm "a fan" to give them a boat like that, should be able to to get hold of another engine too.

I wish you well to sail her.

Her name is OPUS. I understand that means work. My music appreciation pro. would be pleased that I remembered that.

Thanks for the help, Mick, but, unless you are willing to sail her around Cape Breton and down the St. Lawrence, you would have to tow her with a large truck. Maybe you should come and visit her right hereLOL

However, if you do take Morty on as crew--and I admit she has a flair for pretending to learn things--there are historical lessons to be applied regarding hiring women who want to ship out as cabin boys. I think you're supposed to make them go shirtless for a day or something...anyway you'll also have to account for Allan, now. Maybe he can do the heavy stuff. Sounds like a lark!!

Don't matter what kind... They is all the same. Just havin; in inboard is real nice. I used to crew on a centerboard O'Day 27 and the engine was an outboard. Bummer. Had to sto it after getting the sails up and then unsto it when coming back in...

I failed Ladder Climbing 101 but managed to get on board. A little Spic'N Span and Lemon Pledge and she will be fine. Now my fingernail....that's another story.

Will admit my first reaction to seeing OPUS was "Kendall, why do the words 'African Queen' come to mind?" A stern look and an understanding grin with dimples led me to believe I was not alone.

BUT on second look, Kendall has a winter project to get him through the cold months and a happy summer at sea in '04. I haven't seen him this happy in a long time.

Amos, that link you provided worked. There are few things in this world as beautiful as a schooner, barque, brig or ship with a clipper bow.

Congratulations, Kendall. She's beautiful and what a wonderful gift! Sounds as though you are going to have a lot of fun getting her ready to sail. What's the dog think of her? Is he fit to be a sea-dawg?

Can't wait to see you try to get Seamus into the boat. After four years, he still won't cross the grate in the living room and he backs in from the kitchen - afraid to fall on the linoleum, I guess. Tranquilizers and a swing maybe.

Really? Well, I don't see any masts on your boat but it appears to be a single masted boat.

Technically, you would call it a ketch or yawl if the aft mast was shorter than the main mast and a schooner if the fore mast was shorter than the main mast. So where are the masts?

Guest, Kendall is referring to the schooner Compass Rose which I made a link to earlier, not the wee thing he's been given as a gift. Different pictures...

I'll have you know my thing is not wee! It's 27 feet long.

I knew there was a misunderstanding here. Yes, my boat is a sloop. The mast is in Massachusettes, along with the sails and tiller. Hell of a squall we had! LOL

That hole sounds like an opportunity to install a bilge drain plug so you don't get buildup over the winter or at other times when she's out. I just spend Saturday replacing part of the deck and about 4 feet of molded toe rail on a friend's Peason Triton, also disappearing a 1/4 inch hole below the waterline, a bad abrasion in just above the waterline and other problems too numerous to mention, incurred when she broke loose from her mooring in January. We brought her to the marina in a sinking condition and hauled immediately. A bit of sanding and a bit of paint and noone will know the problems ever occurred.

I agree. However, a properly installed plug is not like a valve that can come loose. It can also save you a lot of grief in things spoiled by water accumulated during storage--especially wood, carpets, electricals, etc. The only time it is open is when the boat is out of the water and it is part of your prelaunch check list. I have recently seen two boats take significant damage from water accumulation. One of them had significant interior delamination and had to be scrapped. Water will seek out problems you did not know you had and make them worse.

Well, sure. But usually they work ok....if you put them in right. Otherwise, you just have to fill a perfectly good hole...
