Cheap Jibs!

Popular 

Posted 12 months ago by Tom Lawton

Clearing out space!  These jibs have no damage but are a bit too tired for regattas (in my opinion).  Jibs come with bags. I have a 2005 North Proctor, and 2008 Quantum for $50 each.  These are probably best used for daysailing or practice days, and should have quite a few years left in them.  I can send pics on request.   Always stored indoors in the winter, and rolled - not folded.  Buyer pays shipping, or we can arrange hand-off at a regatta in the northeast.  I can email full-size photos on request, if you want to see more...

This boat has nothing but  potential , a mast, newer top cover, rudder, and trailor.  Use hull 1983 as your blank canvas for creating a completely custom rigging system and bottom color. Hull #1983 was at Dennison Univsersity, then in Detroit untouched to wither away in a parking lot.  I acquired it and planned to race it, but never finished the work and ended up sailing #2905. Hull has been redone and primed - needs bottom paint. Rails need to be glued together and finished. Black mast is newer and fully rigged - needs boom (have wooden boom if interested)....

thistle boat

Thistle is white with gold trim.  Wooden parts need work.  It is a 1962 boat that is a project boat.  We had lots of fun sailing with it, but now that we are in our 70s, it is hard for 1 person to handle.  We are asking $500 as is.

Beautiful Thistle in need of restoration (see photos).  17' long, 6' beam. Black racing mast in good shape.  Full set of sails (garage kept), rudder and tiller.  We believe is it is late 60's.  We are the second owner.  Trailer is not road worthy; only used for storage.  You must make arrangements for hauling and moving.

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.

These sails are brand new. The main is still in the bag, rolled. The jib was up once on the boat, not even sailed. You can get the brand new sails for a discount. Main and jib together for $1,900 - plus shipping or maybe we can meet. Call with questions or email, if that is better.

(Originally purchased for $3000 with new sails added. Now reduced from $2800 to $2000 as moving) Selling due to a move to London, this Thistle is hull # 2703, and has had almost every single block and cleat replaced with Harken items. All lines are new, the main halyard is new. Rigging is working well. New Zhik padded footstraps and new turtles for the spin. The boat comes with three sets of sails.....the best set were bought this year and are two years old. The spinnaker is in good condition, no rips.  The other set is worn, and the spinnaker...
