First topic message reminder :

After several months of trading occasional emails, often times a month apart, today I shook hands (via telephone) with Hal to purchase his Clipper Marine 32 Ketch and six wheel trailer, in California.

Thank You Hal, I will take good care of her, and put her to good use.

PostSubject: Diesel Engine Purrs.    Sat May 05, 2012 1:22 am

Today the phone rang, it was my marine diesel mechanic Joe.

"it's Done"

I went over and he started her up. Key on, low oil pressure buzzer sounds, push start button and she pops off. Very quiet. Hardly know a diesel engine was running. Forward and reverse work. Climbed to cursing rpm. All is a go.

Hooked on to her, and drove her out into the countryside, the opposite direction from the marina. Have an appointment with a wet sand and buff job. She will look like new. Possibly better than new because this body man is very good. Met Terry when he buffed my black truck after vandals spray painted it.

If he can get it buffed in one day, maybe I could splash her Sunday.

Soon, I can update my avatar.

After over a week, looks like the polish job on the hull is about done. Hope to pick her up this evening!

Late lastnight, after dark, I pulled into the driveway with a polished 32.

Now bottom Paint.

Then possibly trading masts, not sure about that.

Then splash.

Noticed an anode missing. It was present a week ago. Always something. Next day air, on the way.

If you are going to be in fresh water...don't use zinc. They haze over and go to sleep in a month or so. Aluminum stays active in fresh water and is what I always recommend.

Looking great Gary!! Cool

Got to be a SERIOUS fan to have a stripe like that!! Laughing

Still planing a mast swap or going straight to splash?

I really want that RF from WW on SB. Have a call into a rigging guy to find out what is involved. Taller mast would also be a plus as that would give me more sail options.

SB is still sitting on the grass. Much of the stuff inside WW has been moved over.

This waiting crap is too much for me. I am about at the end of my fuse.

Met with the rigging guy today, and he offered to switch everything around for me.



I decided to wait, and sail her like she is for one season. If in the fall, I want to make changes, we will do it over winter.



Splash Sunday!

Excellent Gary!! cheers

A project that big always goes into overtime, good thinking to do it in the off season. Plus this way you will get to see how she sails originally and then compare if you decide to switch.

Guess somehow, i broke my promise to continue thread until the boat splashed. Well, she did. Sailed all summer and fall. Had a great time. Pulled in late October. Pulled too soon, as it turned out to be a warm fall. December, and still shirt sleeve days and no snow.

Odd how warm the weather has been. Three sailboat's still on the lake. Water is way down. Hope we have a wet winter and spring.

Wish i could personally thank Bill Crealock for such a wonderful sailboat. Assuming the Clipper Marine sailboats in the traditional trailerable sizes are among the best trailer sailors made in the hay-day of sailboat construction in the 70s, one would not want to forget the coastal blue water cruiser racer class sailboats of the 32 foot variety that so well rounded out their inventory. For the largest trailer sailboat ever made, at that time, they are in command of the water wherever they go.
