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.

Mine is a 16’ aluminum boat with a 35 hp Merc. All I wanted was a boat with a steering wheel. It was an old DNR boat and runs about 35MPH.

Great boats folks. Thanks for posting the pictures. Keep them coming. My Dad used to have a 16 ft Crestliner with a 40 HP Mariner motor. He loved that boat and caught a lot of fish out of it. I always enjoyed going fishing with him.

My first boat was a Raft I built from telephone pole. No shortening them, left them full legth. Put a rudder and steering wheel on back. We could dive off without fear of tipping sideways. I bet it is still floating in that slough back home. ! (Come to think of it , I was re-purposing back then too)
Sorry no photo…...the box camera had no film in it back then !

Ha ha ha…great one Mike. Great looking boats. What type of trailer do they use for those? :-) Thanks for your service in the Navy. My dad was a big Coast Guard guy during WWII. He was on the troop transport USS Altman, and the cutter USS Westwind. My nephew is the captain’s personal chef on the USS Stennis aircraft carrier just back from the Persian Gulf. He is glad to be home after 7 months at sea.
