    That's great news. 

    At this point, maybe find a different broker that's in the area to chase it down? Somebody with high reviews from local customers.  I don't think that's unethical given the trouble you've had with the unresponsive yard.

    I bet that some other brokers around there already know who owns her. 


    -  I'm at James Baldwin's Atom Voyages site all the time - and I've even looked at those photos before.  I'm chagrined that I didn't find them either.

    Hey Mark,

    Any good news on Ginger?

    I was never able to speak to the owner.  I got the owner's phone number and address and inquiries to both were unanswered.  I also got in touch with the onsite broker,  who also attempted contact,  but was unsuccessful in getting a response

    I'm sorry to hear that, Mark.  I was recently sent another link by one 'Winston', but didn't post it.  I asked him to introduce himself before sending me any more essentially anonymous information, however well meant.  However, if you are seriously looking for a Colvin this might be worth pursuing.  I've not actually even opened the link myself.

    You might like this boat, then.  It's also much, much closer to you:

    And I have a 'project' Gazelle that I'm soon to put up for sale.

    Bought a junk rigged Pearson 367. Sorting thru the boat papers, I found two photos of Ginger...taunting me.

    I'm sure you'll grow to love her and find her a lot easier to maintain!  Once you've made her your own and changed a few things to suit you, she will end up a boat of charm and character, I'm sure :-)

    No doubt our Pearson is easier maintain not to mention way more comfortable. We have refurbished the cabin.
