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

Kim C I just might be wanting an apprentice!

Right, Capting:   A creative work, especially a musical composition numbered to designate the order of a composer's works. By transfer I suppose resurrecting a fine little sailboat is an opus, and surely a work of love.

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!!

Yo, Kendall.

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...

Count me in if ya still need a good bow-mate who won't fall over board unless the keel is checkin' out the sky...

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.

You probably don't want me anywhere near your boat, Kendall. I might not make it to the lee rail in time.

I'd be glad to take care of your motorhome if you go on a long cruise, though. Maybe take a little jaunt west through Canada, swing up and see Alaska, down the left coast, and back across the south...I'd be gentle with it.
