Been sailing for 40 plus years. Owned everything from little dingys and beach cats to Big CT's and Islanders. I'm a cat sailer in my heart and wished I still had my MacGregory 36 Cat. the fastest boat I've owned. Had it over 25 knots flying a hull. Now I'm older time to get my other dream boat going, a Wharram.
Not sure I have the time left to do a from scratch build and still get to sail it for a few years. SO I need to find a lost or forgotten boat and rescue it. Just need something that has the basic beginning finished and the builder lost interest, died, or what ever. I didn't retire rich, spent my fortune on adventure along the way, so I need to find a ship on cheap.
Steve it is in Comox Harbour and still for sale I think because I saw it on Craigslist the other day. If you google Craigslist comoxvalley 38 foot Catamaran you should find it. There is still potentially a good boat there if some one has some time and a place to work.
Steve...About Wharram in Bacliff,Tx...in previous listing on Ebay the bids got
to $2500 with several bidders...My reserve was higher...The ball park price is
around $5000 but will look at ALL offers...If this project could work for you we can make a deal for you...The boat could easy launch this summer, very basic, and can be stayed on in yard while working on. I know it would be hard to determine if you are in CAlif and boat in Texas...I could help some..I know the
old MacGregor boat dealer in Clear Lake, Tx, he has two 36 Cats...not for sale.
I have a Bruce Wild 37 Cat I stay on in Fulton Harbor, with old man dreams of
Steve just posted some older photos on this site...Plus..Thinking...If I wanted to
trailor it and detach the beams, as the beams are very solid to hulls and have the panels decks over the beams on the hulls and the bridge deck panels are already in place, just take a saws all and rip it in two down the very center line of the bridge deck then design how to reattach when in Calif...just a thought and one way to do it...it would work and be fairly fast and easy...MRT
