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 missing. Includes rudder, tiller, spinnaker pole and new Rooke cover. Mice have damage several halyards. After the years of storage it needs a good scrubbing, touched up brightwork and tidied up rigging. The trailer is on good shape, though no light system is included. This deal is priced to sell at $1,200, with a discounted price of $900 if the boat is out of my garage by Groundhogs Day.
