Well loved older thistle with teak trim and seats. The trailer, has new tires. Was used for racing in it’s former life hence all the sails. The cover has been restitched and is in good shape. One jib has been taken in to the sail loft to be made into more of a storm jib for us less than agile.

Boat is very stiff, fast, and well maintained.  It is ready to hook up to the truck and take to Flathead Lake Nationals, only needing to add new sails to be competitive.  It includes 2 carbon fiber spinnaker poles, Full Kinder Industries Covers (see kinders website for photos because that is my boat in all the pictures.)  Top and bottom trailering covers, skirted mast up top cover, centerboard cover, rudder cover, and a full mast cover.  There is a North Spinnaker bag in the bow.  It is the cleanest rigged thistle I've had the pleasure of sailing on.  The line's...

This a small collection of vintage Thistle parts that have accumulated over years of Thistling. Most notable is an original D&M centerboard winch. Otherwise, it's a weird collection, as pictured. Why is there only one D&M shroud plate? Who knows. Free to good, or even mediocre home. You pay the shipping.

We are selling our white 1977 Thistle (3601). It was restored and updated some time in the last decade. Everything is functional and ready to sail/race. The running rigging, standing rigging, and hardware are all in great shape with the exception of main halyard showing signs of wear where the wire is spliced into line. 3 yr old top cover in great shape and a hull cover in good shape. The hull is in good shape, some minor scratches/marks from the dock, and some minor chipping paint on the interior. The wood and rails are also in good shape with...

In the mid-1980s, thistle 1721 was turned over on her trailer and professionally painted with a red two-part polyurethane. I put her in unheated inside storage at one of my properties. About eight years ago, she was moved to a storage unit and is still there today. Her condition is fairly good  and seems to be serviceable. The trailer is OK, and the wheels/tires are eight years old.
