Sad





Lets say it was a 1964 Corvette at a garage sale. Price on the door was $2,000 You almost wet yourself paying for it, and the seller says hold up. A few things have been changed on the car. The engine & transmission were removed, and a lawnmower engine has been hooked up to one wheel. The engine compartment was gutted, and water bottles and batteries were fastened in with 2x4's and long sheet metal screws all through the metal skin. A huge solar panel was bolted to the hood.

The back seat was removed, and a giant water bottle was bolted down. The headliner was removed, and Styrofoam was glued in place, covered with no seam laminate flooring, Blondie in color.

Steering wheel is gone, but the seller says any wheel would work.

Front and back bumpers were removed, and a front bumper was replaced from a ford something or another.

And the list of issues goes on.

Would you give $2,000 for that corvette?

It would be SAD to see a corvette treated that way, and maybe it still has parts that could be taken to another corvette, if the price was right.

I payed too much for that CM32, and I purchased it without seeing inside to find out how really far gone she was. The positive side, she did have some parts I could use for a good condition CM32 I later purchased that was not all boogered up.

I had a lemon, and made lemonade.



With the extra parts I now have, I can go from this, to this:

If you at least left the mast and boom. Someone could restore and sail this boat again someday. You are removing the parts of the boat that are the most difficult to replace. Now it's likely to become a playground.

Maybe you should see if your idea works before you get rid of her. That way "IF" your experiment fails...you could put one of the masts on her and possibly keep another Clipper from going to the graveyard.

Just a suggestion of course, from a concerned boat lover who hates to see one go to waste.

I personally saved a little sailing dinghy from the dumpster. It had 4 holes in it, rotten wood, no mast or sail and it was about to get cut up and tossed. I couldn't let it happen so I patched her up, slapped some paint on her and row that little boat several times a week. I still need to find a mast and sail but someday she will sail again. I LOVE boats and think they are meant to be on the water.

I hope you consider it.

Then you have the problem of trying to control a 8,000 pound boat, in 10 mph winds with an outboard. I tried it numerous times, with two different outboards. In no winds, it was possible, but who goes sailing with no wind? In a wind, the free board made it very dangerous to maneuver, and sometimes impossible to navigate. One time out, I had to choose a slip on the wrong side of my docks, because it just would not go to my slip.

I have later purchased a 18HP extra long shaft, but it is rather like dancing with a dancing partner that can't dance, having her change shoes, does not inspire the confidence level. That also proved to be a problem, in that being large and heavy, outside the boat, in an area that is hard to get to, makes for unpleasant and possibly dangerous sailing conditions. An 18 HP engine is pretty heavy.



Another thing I am looking at, is I insure two sailboats with high limits. Should anything happen to any of my boats, I am covered. Having one boat, will save me big dollars next year. I can only sail one boat, why pay insurance on two? Currently, I have to. If a toddler playing on the grass, trips and falls and hits her head on my trailer, I do not want to loose my home, my business, because I was not insured.



I know a diamond in the ruff. Sugar Bee was a diamond in the ruff. Wondering Wallace was a misused, miss repaired, cobbled, mess. Remember the vehicle on The Beverly Hillbillies? Remember Jethro's pants belt? Prime examples of the architecture that went into Wandering Wallace in her final years.



I did not purchase Wallace as a parts boat. However, circumstances, and prudence dictates that is where her strength awaits. I personally have 100's of hours in cleaning time on Wallace, not counting the hours my wife has spent, more than my time by tripple. Once all the filth, junk, stupid stuff, was removed, it still looked like a basket case. I was able to get the outside looking pretty good, but the inside was toooo imbarrising to invite people aboard. Laminate floor covering on the walls? Really? Glued on, screded on floor laminate on the walls. What was my wife thinking when she did the walk through? God only knows.



I am glad I purchased Wallace, as I needed extra parts for Sugar Bee. Not many time machines from the 70's, but Wallace is one of them.



I would be interested in purchasing other CM32's about to be cut up for parts.
