Welcome!



Not sure we have any CM30 owners around you.



By chance did you get your sailboat from OK City? I just missed one there some time back.

I was given the boat from a friend who is 83. I'm also looking for a trailer.

For sale $100


I want the sails, mast, front hatch, bow pulpit, roller furling, misc hardware from all over the boat. Afraid there is not going to be much to sell, after I am done robbing parts off it.



I can sell the keel for scrap, for more than the boat is worth.

[img][/img]Well, I got on the boat today. The cabin roof is real mushy. There was a large snake living in the engine well. I tried to post a photo but can't figure this site out to do that. I'm 64+ so- that 'splains it.

The lake level is low and the keel has hollowed out its own place. The boat floats, but it would take a ton of cash and labor to get it to where it would be ready to sail.

How do you upload photos here?

Sounds like you would be spending and working more than sailing.

How bad do you want a project?

Excellent tutorial on posting pictures Here

Welcome,

Glad to see a fellow Texan on the forum!

I lived in DeSoto for about 10 years! I miss the lakes.

In West Texas now, dry as a sheet on the clothes-line!

You are correct- too much of a project boat. I'd spend a year getting it fixed. That tutorial video- would not play.

That is really sad and a little surprising coming from a guy who owns a clipper website.

I thought you would be the type who tried to save these old boats.

Isn't there a local sea scout troop you could donate it to?

Donate a sailboat to scouts, with no masts, no rigging, no sails, no engine, and about 30 other items mismatched, missing, or moved to Sugar Bee.



I could try.

Mounted rather extensive seek and find, to return two boats, one from LA, one from the Great Lakes. Quite a bit of money, sweat, hours, went into this. The better sailboat won. The Great Lakes sailboat has no engine, no transmission, and about 50 other missing, or borrowed parts, some of which I stole off her to make one good sailboat.



Should I keep one meager sailboat, and sell one even more distressed sailboat, or make one good one?



The choice was clear. Sad but clear.



The Previous owner, bless his pointed head (as my Mother used to say) had a rather unique vision for his 32 Aft cockpit. Glue / screw laminate particle board on all the walls. Mount a 75 gallon water tank in the main seat / bed in the main salon / galley. Remove the engine and transmission on a 9,000 pound sailboat, and try pushing that around with a small short shaft outboard. Does not cut it.



As a parts boat, it helped me greatly, and I am afraid it has to end that way.
