My 1982 Chrysler Buccaneer (an 18’ sloop rigged racing day sailer named “Special Liberty” ) sank on it’s mooring during a wind storm 5 years ago and was bashed on an abandoned mooring stone someone had left on the bottom. It has been upside down on it’s trailor out back ever since.

Can’t bring myself to pay $4,000 to fix up a boat that cost me $800 used…. not when the kiddies want to go to camp this summer.

No one could touch her on a broad reach and she pointed very well too. I always wanted to class race her, and rig up a trapeez for kicks and giggles, but never had the chance.

I cry a little every time I walk past her.
