CAL 2-29 sailboat (1975)

Yorktown, VA
United States


The time has come. The boat featured in this blog for the past 8 years is now for sale. At some
point, one reaches the stage where one wants to try something bigger and better. I’ve reached that
stage. But parting with this vessel is like parting with a family member. She helped me survive
storms. She loves rough weather. She also was my refuge from the world when it got to be too
stressful. All the stress went away as soon as I stepped aboard her. Now I’m offering this jewel to
someone else who can appreciate her.Asking price: $8500 OBO
Her virtues:
- Made when boats were made thick and durable, she will last for years to come
- She’s fast. No, I wasn’t a winner on her. But other captains more daring and experienced than me
were able to bring home the gold on her and on boats like her.
- She’s rigged for solo sailing. You can take off on your own without worrying about whether you can
handle her, in just about any weather.
