1975 D&M Thistle 3390 Asking $2400 or best offer (no trades) The boat is ready to sail right now as it is, but it would need a few upgrades if you wanted to race competitively. I have the Ohio title for the boat in my name, and its registration is good until 2024. The trailer is currently unregistered, but it's very easy to register a small trailer in Ohio with no title needed (Just need to weigh the trailer on a certified scale and bring the weight slip to the BMV). Functionally, the boat is in very good condition. It...

Good starter boat

New Popular 

Posted 3 weeks ago by James Andrews

Thistle 3170.  Good starter boat.  Yellow hull.  Silver mast and boom.  Good North main and two jibs.  Mostly new running rigging.  Solid trailer.  Boat is in far northern MN, but for a serious inquiry I can tow down to Rochester (SE corner of MN).  Price is negotiable, especially for someone wanting to start in the class.  Its been great fun, but too much boat to single hand, and there's no nearby fleet.
