Thistle available for donation to support youth sailing or fleet growth.  Hull and rig are solid.  Teak rails need to be tightened up.  Boat was purchased as a fleet building boat by an active member of fleet 171 who unfortunately passed away after a long battle with cancer.  The boat is stored outside with the mast up and covered by a full sided Sailor’s Tailor cover.  If you are interested I will complete a more extensive survey and assist with the logistics of the transfer.  The family would love to see the boat return to active service.  This post lists...

Beacon Composites was approved by the Measurement Committee in March of 2021 and Thistle 4052 is their first boat.  The hull and tanks are from the Great Midwest Yachts molds (now owned by Beacon Composites), although the tank between the centerboard trunk and the bow tank has been replaced with a custom design solid structure.  This is the first Thistle made using infusion, a process now widely used in the high-end marine industry.  The hull was also constructed using epoxy resin rather than polyester.  Also noteworthy are the seams where the tanks meet the hull.  The seams are nearly invisible...

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!

SOLD 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.

Cheap Jibs!

Popular 

Posted 8 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...

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.
