Seablossom Norsea 27 on trailer $1.00 (one dollar)

    All told, counting boat, trailer, and extruded aluminum flagpole mast, I've got about fifteen or twenty grand in this unfinished project. All I want out of it is, out of it.

    There are a full set of plans on the Association file storage for a rig for this boat. The mast goes to that. The deck has a hole in the design spot but there is no step built.

    Since I bought this boat I've had a major cancer, other major surgery, and fully and completely swallowed the anchor. I never want to go anywhere but here again.

    The trailer needs its new hydraulic brake surge coupler installed, but the coupler is here, bought and paid for. I don't know if the tires are sound or not. The buyer should bring tools and plan on spending a day or two in the local town in a motel. I have hydraulic jacks and a tractor for anything that needs to be lifted or pulled short distances.

    Seriously. One dollar.

    I think the diesel would run with a new head gasket. I had the valves ground but installed the head gasket backwards.

    The interior is pretty scruffy.

    There are some sailing odds and ends that go with it.

    I have some aluminum pipe currently holding the mast up. I want to keep this pipe.

    Pick up in northwestern Missouri about 50 miles NE of Kansas City.

    This is a serious offer. The hull is sound, the interior is mostly stripped. I think the fuel tank leaks but I'm not certain.

    Somebody help an old man out.

    Thanks,

    Jeff

    Jeff,

    Sorry about your misfortune. What with the distance from Connecticut and COVID and my own advancing age, I am not a likely candidate for your boat.

    But I would like to help.  I think you would get responses if you loaded some recent pictures.  Especially below decks which you say will need work. 

    What engine do you have? The original Farymann?

    You mention a light pole for a mast.  The pictures of the boat on your ID page show what looks like a wooden mast in place.   What happened to it?

    I sold my last boat (a Frances 26) via Sailboatlistings.com and I was asking a lot more than $1.  You may want to give them a try


    Once again, I am  trying to help you divest yourself of a very interesting boat  which should get picked up quickly considering the price


    Regards,

    Dennis

    Hi Jeff I have been wanting a boat like this since I can remember. I would take good care of her and she would see blue water and great adventures.

    Please contact me if interested. 512.915.4268. Gaspergallon@gmail.com
