1/19/21 Sale Pending Needs rails and the rest of the wood could use refinishing. All hardware removed in 2006 (its boxed and ready to be reinstalled) and the boat has been stored indoors since then. Wesco low profile trailer, could probably use some work also. The structure of the trailer is sound, it’s just been sitting for a long time.  Hull is in excellent condition and has no stress cracks anywhere. Very stiff. Lots of sails and I’m sure as I start digging around I will find some covers and extras also.

Thistle 2217 has been sitting on a trailer at Mission Bay YC for many years. I bought her to sail with my siblings, but due to changes in my life I'm unable to sail it. She sails fine, just needs a little TLC. The trailer is very rusty and is probably not roadworthy. Free to good home!

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)....

Cheap Jibs!

Posted 6 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. The 2008 North Fisher (pictured) is probably still good enough for club racing - $75 (plus shipping) I also 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...

This Great Midwest Thistle has had only two owners, Dan Reasoner and me.  Lovingly cared for by each of us. For the past 14 years she has spent 95% of her time in the garage under cover, mostly coming out only when there is a regatta.  This is a ‘turn-key’ boat, ready for Nationals as she sits today.  Someone will have great success with her.  (Free delivery to anyplace east of the Mississippi!)   THIS THISTLE HAS A HAPPY NEW OWNER!  THANKS FOR VIEWING & HAPPY THISTLING!!!
