Have a set of sails used one season. Numbers removed from main. Main sail needs a small repair on the "beaded" part of the sail that feeds into the mast.   Email me for photos or if you have questions. Thanks!

Thistle #690 is and can be a beautiful Woodie and comes with many extras! She has been stored in a garage for most if not her entire life. I was working on her, but when the Pandemic hit, I decided to get out on the water sooner rather than later and bought a fully rigged and ready Woodie. Now, 690 would like a new home and is valuable for restoration, or sad to even suggest it, parts. She had fiberglass over the exterior hull, and partially on the inside. All of that was removed. Her centerboard trunk, seats, and grates...

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 sailling 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. I...
