Beautifully restored boat has been covered in my garage since 2001. Due to ongoing chronic lower back issues, it is time for someone else to take over the helm. Topside and transom are bright, hull is light blue. Old Shore sails are still usable, but no good for racing. Much Newer, used, Norths still have plenty of race in them (boat priced accordingly). Aro spars, wood/lead cb, wood ruder, new rails, fwd grating, 45 braces, and stanchions. Shock cord @ spin turtles and hiking straps has gone limp. Gator, breaking trailer w/bearing buddies and spare tire. Lights and wiring are...

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.

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)....

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...

My wife and I campaigned a J/24 for 15 years when kids arrived on the scene. The Thistle seemed like a nice move given we had the Willamette sailing club only 3 miles from our home and there was a strong fleet. I sourced a boat locally and had a brand new custom galvanized trailer built for this boat ($1,500!) and proceeded to pull it into dry storage for winter. That was something like 10-11 years ago. We never even sailed it even once. Wow were we wrong about our available time with the kids and the boat has sat...

#1173 is a true barn find. At some point around the turn of the century, she was given a new transom, gunwhales and some hull patching. The work must have been done by a professional because it's very good. Then she was purchased by a guy who put her in the barn loft for 15 or twenty years. He gave the boat to my 89 year old neighbor who stored her in his shop for two years before I acquired #1173 from him. After the restoration, no hardware was re-installed although a lot of the hardware is in a box...

We got the boat in mint condition to join a racing club and have not used it much . the hull and rigging are great . some small cracks around where the seat meets the hull and a bit of non structural fiberglass came off the transom . the teak work has gone natural from the brightwork it was . there was a club here but it faded away , our sons left and we have been looking at this boat for years now . this boat is a good deal because first we live in a remote area and...

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.
