Thistle is white with gold trim. Wooden parts need work. It is a 1962 boat that is a project boat. We had lots of fun sailing with it, but now that we are in our 70s, it is hard for 1 person to handle. We are asking $500 as is.

SOLD I have put a lot of love into this boat in the past 8 yrs but, against my better judgement, I have bought a woodie. I am only selling because I will eventually need new sails for Hull 66. All new running rigging, maffioli swiftcord sheets, interior of boat was repainted with awlgrip 2 yrs ago. New thwart, knees, centerboard cheeks, and stanchions. All brightwork was redone 3 yrs ago with 3 coats of west and 4 coats of spar varnish. I bought a new trailer 4 yrs ago, replaced tires, and change bearings twice a year. I have...

Restored in 1999 and garage stored. Wooden mast attached with a metal, hinged mounting plate. Very easy to step with a partner connecting the forestay. Woodie rudder with Thistle carrying case. Fully functioning (boathouse made) aluminum spinnaker pole (Wooden Spinnaker pole is broken but included and can use as a model if new owners decides to remake). Trailer is OK for short haul but not recommended...

My wife and I campaigned a J/24 for 15 years when kids arrived on the scene. The Thistle seemed like a nice move given we had the Willamette sailing club only 3 miles from our home and there was a strong fleet. I sourced a boat locally and had a brand new custom galvanized trailer built for this boat ($1,500!) and proceeded to pull it into dry storage for winter. That was something like 10-11 years ago. We never even sailed it even once. Wow were we wrong about our available time with the kids and the boat has sat...

Thistle 2217 has been sitting on a trailer at Mission Bay YC for many years. I bought her to sail with my siblings, but due to changes in my life I'm unable to sail it. She sails fine, just needs a little TLC. The trailer is very rusty and is probably not roadworthy. Free to good home!

Thistle available for donation to support youth sailing or fleet growth. Hull and rig are solid. Teak rails need to be tightened up. Boat was purchased as a fleet building boat by an active member of fleet 171 who unfortunately passed away after a long battle with cancer. The boat is stored outside with the mast up and covered by a full sided Sailor’s Tailor cover. If you are interested I will complete a more extensive survey and assist with the logistics of the transfer. The family would love to see the boat return to active service. This post lists...

I've had this vote for over 20 years purchased from Eric Pomber. He completely rebuilt this boat. It has been in dry storage and tarped. It did have a little mishap and needs a small repair...and the rails could use a little help. It is in pretty good shape overall...just needs some TLC and a new owner.

Beautifully restored boat has been covered in my garage since 2001. Due to ongoing chronic lower back issues, it is time for someone else to take over the helm. Topside and transom are bright, hull is light blue. Old Shore sails are still usable, but no good for racing. Much Newer, used, Norths still have plenty of race in them (boat priced accordingly). Aro spars, wood/lead cb, wood ruder, new rails, fwd grating, 45 braces, and stanchions. Shock cord @ spin turtles and hiking straps has gone limp. Gator, breaking trailer w/bearing buddies and spare tire. Lights and wiring are...
