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 there warm and dry through a decade of non use and it is time for someone else to give this boat given we never even sailed this boat once.

It was fully setup for racing and was raced up until the point we purchased the boat and did well.  The boat has been measured a number of times over the years as I have a thick file of boat history here with this one which is pretty cool.  No emails here – all old school hand written stuff :o)

Come and sail this boat – she is ready for your summer adventures.

I don’t have any pictures hand but I can make that happen if you are serious.

Full set of sails – mooring cover – NEW trailer – all lines and rigging (not junk).
