    Default Looking for a boat

    I'm looking for a potential steed for the 2012 race. Does anyone know of a smaller boat (Moore 24/SC27/etc) that would fit the bill that's available? I'm hoping to get a boat with some shorthanded goodies already in place.

    You should take 101 to Hanalei...

    That Moore 101 is insanely cheap. I've spent more that that this year on gear an maintenance for my 34'-er.

    Hmm--oceanslogic, do you know anything detailed about that Moore? Has she been a past racer in the area? From the photos and descriptions, all I can tell is that she's very...green. I'll contact the owner for more info.

    Bob, thanks for the link. I've seen a couple of O30s available, but I've kinda-sorta concluded that it might be too much boat for me at the moment...though I'd certianly be tempted by a turn-key shorthanded racer.

    Isn't that Rudy's boat? Did he move to Redding?

    There are photos of 101 under sail in the 2008 Delta Ditch Run at:

    Rudy sold the boat to a guy in Redding. The guy in Redding wants to sell the boat. --Pat B.

    does anyone have any more info on 101? like why it had a new spar put in it several years back? what word was done to the rudder, rest of boat, etc? has anyone sailed or raced on it?

    thanks

    Default 101

    I drove to Redding to see the boat - I'm not a Moore owner, but have read a lot and looked at several. The new mast is apparently because of a dismasting. The fittings are backed with G10, don't know if solid epoxy was put in balsa core. New rudder due to leaks in old rudder. Hull seemed sound, full set of sails but didn't pull them out completely for full inspection. Workable road trailer. Agree new price reasonable, although hull 115 looked like new and sold for 6k about 6 weeks ago (just missed that one). There was another that was singlehanded for I believe $9500 at the Richmond YC Foundation that you can find online (http://www.richmondyc.org/Boats-for-...4217~13823.htm).

    Good luck.
