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.  Sadly we never even sailed it once. We were wrong about our available time with the kids and the boat has sat there...

This boat is by far the cheapest and most competitive boat in the country. I have won numerous races in big events against brand new boats, so speed is no issue for this old girl. This boat was only sailed for about 5 years after it was originally built then was lost in a barn for decades before I purchased it in 2010. I did an extensive refit in 2011 where a lot of interior structures were replace and upgraded as well as all of the rigging. All of the glue joints and rails are extremely solid which is where...
