#1254 in need of full restoration. Free OBO. All mahogany. Centerboard trunk has been removed. I don’t see any rot. It’s been sitting indoors on a cradle for almost 25 years. Don’t know it’s prior history. Bought it from a coworker with desires to restore and sell but life happened. Trailer isn’t road ready. Has air suspension but needs tires and new wood.

This is the second boat from the Gordon McCarty estate. Because doesn't everyone have two Thistles? It is a mid '60s D&M. It was raced at Pymatuning Yacht Club from 1969 to about 2005. Since then it has been stored in Gordon's garage. The mahogany rails look solid. Seat attachments have minor repairs and look solid. The gel coat is quite faded, as is typical of the era. It is generally rigged to race, but is missing a hyfield lever and 45 degree shroud braces. Many of the fittings are "vintage," with scattered upgrades. Some sheets and lines may be...

Thistle 3570 in solid condition, was owned and cared for by the late Howdy King and located at Indianapolis Sailing Club on Geist. Race ready. All tanks dry. Close to minimum weight (can verify). Sailed mostly on inland lake/geist. Green with red waterline and white under waterline. Teak rails/gratings Some dents and scratches from docks but otherwise a good, fast D&M that was well cared for by the man himself. King trailer (super lightweight, easy to move around a lot) has some surface rust- just needs a wirebrush and some paint- I'll throw two new tires on it. Excellent mast/boom/spin...

Fast GMW, extremely well maintained. Teak and Gel Coat in great condition. The boat is stored in garage when not sailing. The boat is newer than the number indicates it came out of the mold right before 4040. Comes with bottom and top covers, wesco trailer and 3 sets of Fisher North Sails.

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...
