Seastead Porn of the Day
« on: August 15, 2015, 08:49:16 AM »
I should have never started to look at boats for sale in the Northwest. It's made me aware  that I've been living in the wrong place for my entire life.

Oh, shit.



Follow the link below to admire this old beauty. I can't make the pics big enough to appreciate. If you click on the smaller pics you get a a slide show of them, enlarged.

Too much shit topside.  Bad Windage problems.

Also, if this is going to be a running series, you gotta consolidate.  I will see if I can find your prior Doomer Sea Gypsy Porn threads and do a merge for you.

What will happen when I buy my ticket to the great beyond?  This board will be a MESS!  Nobody keeps things together.  arrggghhhh!

What will happen when I buy my ticket to the great beyond?

If AND when, if I am still alive myself, I doubt I'll bother coming here anymore. Just so you know. I only come here now to make work for you, merging threads and stuff.  And to share these little fantasies.

I know all I need to know about collapse, as do all of us here. And most of THOSE, out there? They don't want to know.

You're probably right about the deck house. I wonder how many times he went to sea with that on there? It's an old boat, and very well appointed, if you look at things like the electronics. So the question i have is " Why would a guy who obviously knows boats, build something that would make his boat less seaworthy?"

It might still sail okay. I'm sure its a bitch to get in and out of an anchorage. It's a big boat.

You better not do that if/when i beat you to the Great Beyond.  Because if you abandon the Diner after I buy my ticket and you figure to be welcome at the Campfire of My People, you will be SOL.

I will be WATCHING.  You fuck up the Diner after I am gone, and all the rest of ETERNITY will be fucked for you!  I get there first, I can call the shots from the Great Beyond!  So TAKE CARE OF THE DINER!

This would be a fine boat for a solo sailor or perhaps even a couple, if they know how to live without much crap.

But the main reason I have to include it is because it's the best boat ad I've ever read. Should be on Best of CL.



Own a John Alden classic sailing vessel.

One of only two ships of her class ever built by Alden, PAX may be the only surviving model of this design.

When you own an Alden sailboat, you own a beautiful classic vessel that is built strong, made for speed, and with looks to kill. These boats are stunning. (True fact: PAX will make her début as a billboard model later this year in Snohomish County! We will keep you posted.) Because this is an historic sailboat you must be committed to care for her, if you let her fall on hard times you are robbing the world of a beautiful treasure that if built today as a reproduction, would cost a fortune. If well maintained however, these boats will only continue to appreciate in value.

Like any good lady, PAX has a past, she is a veteran of the south sea, and was even arrested as a drug running boat in South America for a bit. She has since given up crime and intrigue and is committed to family life here in the Puget Sound.

When we got her three years ago, you could see right through her, no stem, no rudder, no engine, missing planks, she was ready to be scrapped. She is now sail ready. She now has a new head, and new purple-heart wood stem and rudder, new awesome Yanmar 20hp inboard engine, new electrical wiring, new bright work and cockpit deck, new chain plats Ect. The best materials have been purchased for restoration. The mast was restored four years ago. She is a heavily rigged ship with running back stays. Much of the restoration has been under the purview of Professional Port Townsend shipwright Clint Thompson.

SPECS:
31.6ft on deck plus bowsprit, she takes a forty ft slip.
9.6 ft beam
4.6 ft draft
Weight 12 tons
Cutter Rig
Self tending Stay sail
Hull speed of 7 knots
Sleeps four comfortably
Fully rigged, (Marconi)
Model: Alden 430B
Year: 1933

Why we are selling:
We were given a really great wooden boat which can accommodate our growing family better--and this new lady now requires our time and money. We aren't ready to have a fleet of vessels, so we are sharing our lovely PAX with you; you lucky dog you.

We love this little boat and will choose the new owner carefully.
The new owner must:

• Love adventure and the sea
• Be prepared to give this little ship the ongoing maintenance each year that is required of all wooden boat owners
• Always keep her moored in the water, which is best for wooden boats
• Love her to death
• Have a love for, and previous knowledge of, sailing and wood boats
• Have the heart to give her what she needs when she asks nicely for it
• Be a nice person

Thanks, let us know when you wanna meet and see her up close.

***Serious inquires only, please be mindful of the cost of moorage and owning a sailboat and have your financing in order prior to contacting me. Reasonable offers considered. Please respect my time.***


Makes me want to cry.

1933.  Wow.

Sadly, 31' is just too small.

We gotta shoot for the 40-50' range IMHO.  I am confident I am going to win the Big Kahuna in the case.

I just want 3 things:

1- A berth to sleep.  Don't need my own cabin.

2- A good Galley to cook in.

3- The Nav Station of my dreams, a polished walnut desk and upholstered leather chair with state of the art electronics, plus quality laminated paper charts and Plath Sextant for backup

When your dreams die, you die.  I still dream.

Yeah. I agree. That 60 ft junk is the shit. Big enough to have a little space.

60' might be too big, unless we have several investors and at least 3 able bodied seamen crewing.  Docking fees also get exponentially larger in that range, unless you're mooring in Ocean Falls.

I think 45' would be the right size to start with.

Quadcopter drone with camera?

That pic looks exactly like my friend's Endeavor that he just sold for 60K. Only 38 ft. Lots of great electronics though.
