    Hi everyone! Hello David,

    I'm sorry that you are just a few months too late. I sold my NA29 to a fellow who immediately trucked her to the midwest. He plans to refit her and sail her down the mighty Mississippi to the gulf of Mexico.  I could possibly contact him if you like, but , it is unlikely he would be interested in selling . Keep your eyes peeled. They turn up once in a blue moon.

    best,

    Jonny

    What about Pake? They say all boats are for sale, or her owner may know of more ☺

    Unfortunately with work and life I was not ready to move on Jonny's boat!  I bought a camper instead!  LOL

    And, of course, there are still two in the JRA, as you will see if you look in the Directories.

    Hi Annie, I did not realize there was a way to do that easily.  Thank you.


    Alas the 2 are the ones I mentioned in my post.  Wooden Teleport and that Cali Bounty that sold.


    Oh well.

    Guess I need to win Powerball and buy Ron Glas........

    David.

    Back in 1991 I was contacted by one owner of a North Atlantic 29, in California, Jim Dietz. The boat, "Sirius" was built from GRP by Bounty Enterprises. We kept in contact for a few years, at the end of the before e-mail age. He put his boat for sale in 1999 and we have not been in contact since then.

    Only a month after JRA NL 30 landed in my briefcase (8.9.95), did two letters arrive from America, one from well-known JRA-member Jim/James Creighton in Canada, and one  -  the day after  -  from David Chamberlin in Fairbanks, Alaska, USA.

    You know the story of Jim Creighton' s boat. Mr. Chamberlin's boat was of GRP. He was working on it during summer holidays. I don't know what happened later to that one. It was a 'project' at that time.

    That's all I know.

    Arne

    Hi Does anyone know where any of these boats are in the USA besides the one sold last year in Cali and the wooden one sailed by the Aussies thru NW Passage?  Quite a few were built.  Buying one appeals to me when one considers all the mods you would have to make in a conversion to get the same thing.  Looking for leads.

    Thanks, David.

    They are actually very rare. The Aussies boat you refer to was not built by Bounty Enterprises but a custom build in eastern Canada. There might have been 3(?) fiberglass NA 29's built by Bounty in CA and then there was the wooden one from which they built the mold. I've seen one of the fiberglass versions in Hawaii. There are 2 pics of the Hawaii boat, "CapeSeeker", here: (scroll down close to the bottom)
