Boat is located by Cooperstown, NY. It has new Westwood refurbished hull and paint. Boat is complete with extra sails and parts. It is under covered. Last owner has moved and can no longer sail. The family wants the boat donated (free) to anyone that would use it. This boat raced for years in Annapolis, MD. It would be a sin to see it just sit.

SOLD - This Thistle was built around 1960 and was a kit boat put together by the Nelson family in Muncie Indiana. They sailed it for over 30 years at Prarie Creek Lake. Always garaged for the winter. I purchased to boat in 1995, sailed it for a few years, then put it in the barn as a future project to restore. It's still there and now it the time to pass it along to someone who might invest some time in getting it sailing again. Best reasonable offer.
