Default Local Anomolies

It was recently suggested that we go off on tangents in the chat box a bit too often, when discussing local boats with history, or weird stuff that comes up for sale within buying range. So, this thread will hopefully record some of the 'finds' spat out by Guar, Maxx, Manana, myself, or anyone else who has something to contribute. Just make sure it is actually something cool and not a bunch of junk. (sometimes junk is cool!)

This Kiwi 21 was discussed at lenght last week, though we figured it is probably not all that fast. A Mini-tonner perhaps:

Looking for a Spring or Summer project? Look no further. This boat has lots of potential as a day sailer or for shorter trips. The inside is empty making it very fast and leaving you the opportunity to what you please. Currently it is on land near Swartz bay and due to some the circumstances it needs to be gone.

Here's the ad for the Hustler SJ 30 we discussed a few weeks ago.

http://www.kijiji.ca/v-sailboat/vict...ationFlag=true

Apparently it is still for sale as I finally got a voice message from the owner a few days ago. He said he is living in the maritimes and the boat has been sitting untouched for 5 years, so I suspect very green looking at best. Must be a different blue boat Stu was saying was in a trailer at RVic. I'm likely the only person nuts enough to consider resurrecting her from the dead, but if someone else is willing to take on a project like this then go for it because I hate to see boats like this end up in a landfill.

I kind of view this as a cheap hull & deck kit with keel/ballast, spars and likely some usable deck hardware. These boats have a race oriented interior. Narrow settee and pilot berths, awkward quarter berths. I would treat the interior as a blank slate and would gut the interior, relocate bulkheads and convert to sweptback rig. Raise jib hounds and go with a lapper rather than genoa.

These were built by Oyster in the UK and are very well constructed from what I understand. I believe they are solid glass with a fairly massive array of stringers. If a balsa deck, that could be an issue, but that is true with any older boat I suppose. I've always liked Jones' designs, although some find them appalling. This is certainly one of his more conservative IOR designs.

Since the ad only contains a small photo of a sistership pulled from a UK ad, I've included a couple better ones of sisterships.

One issue I have would be getting a boat with no engine across the strait and up the Fraser to haul out at a place like Shelter Island.

Wilderness 40 down the coast caught my eye this week. I suspect this is the only one with an open transom. Looks nice, not so sure about the headroom situation.

1984 Wilderness 40.7 bags of sails, yanmar 3GM mid nineties less than 400 hours, Harken winches, hardware and traveller. Great shape. Performance cruiser.
