I got this woodie 8 years ago to be raced and finally try and win the nationals after getting second twice. Everything I could think of that would make it the best was used. Lots of advice from Greg Griffin and Chris Pollock. Nationals in Jacksonville in 2021 was the goal but now that has changed. Here is what I have done: Custom foam cored super strong and light weight bow tank to eliminate the styrofoam. Round aluminum tiller and rudder head. Sea Sure pintles and gudgeons with bearings. All new wood except the seats and cb trunk, they were...

Built by Emery C. Kemp. This is a basic 1954 Thistle, complete but without add-ons, except for bailers installed by Great Midwest. It’s mostly been stored indoors or covered. I started stripping and sanding it, but have found that it’s more than I want to do. It leaks mightily at the keelson with possible rot, but there is none visible. More pictures are available for the asking. Has gold aluminum mast as the original wooden one broke during a gibe. Will not part out. Included: Work cradle built to Great Midwest specs New North cover New flotation purchased from Great...

REDUCED. Hello! Selling my first Thistle in preparation for a move cross-country. I've been sailing it for 3 years and it's time for it to go to a new home. This is an awesome boat for someone learning Thistles, or who is not competing at the highest levels. Check out the listing here: https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/623962878304672 One detail I need to mention is that the boat does not have a title. I bought it in PA (where it was never titled) so could not get one in Ohio. I have sailed it frequently without any official Ohio registration numbers with no issues. There...

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.

This Great Midwest Thistle has had only two owners, Dan Reasoner and me.  Lovingly cared for by each of us. For the past 14 years she has spent 95% of her time in the garage under cover, mostly coming out only when there is a regatta.  This is a ‘turn-key’ boat, ready for Nationals as she sits today.  Someone will have great success with her.  (Free delivery to anyplace east of the Mississippi!)   THIS THISTLE HAS A HAPPY NEW OWNER!  THANKS FOR VIEWING & HAPPY THISTLING!!!

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...
