More recently a Naval Academy grad (yes they can sail) and his lady came to see if Tyche would be the boat for them. They are both experienced sailors and have access to her parents’ marina in Maine.
They inspected her fore and aft, checked the sails for dryrot and holes, and sized up the trailer. Their verdict: $2000 is a fair trade for this boat.
I took some photos on the day of the contract signing which ensure the buyers the boat will be in “as is ” condition as of that date.
Since the boat was listed on Craigslist I would only accept cash in payment as a precaution against scam.
When she rolled out we thought we’d miss her but now can get to grooming the part of the yard where Tyche has resided all these years.
Bon voyage, Tyche.
Godspeed. Happy sails to you.
