    Hello everyone!

    I've decided to swallow the anchor , and drastically lower Sabra's asking price.

    I'll leaving the country at the end of April for a few months , and would like to sell her before I leave.

    I am here , in Florida to show her to interested parties until April 19th.


    Thanks!

    I have deleted some posts in this thread that seemed contentious and risked becoming less than gentlemanly.  Sorry to do this - you are not being policed but we do very very occasionally take down a post - we are a community of sailing friends.
