    This is one of the best F-24 MK1ís around. The reason is this boat has spent most of its life in the Northern Rocky Mountain region where the sailing season is about 4 months long. This means that the boat is covered and stored for 2/3 of its life. The boat was drysailed much of the time and has never had bottom paint. When I bought this boat 6 years ago moisture meter readings showed that the core was dry, a very important fact for older boats.

    I am the second owner. Both owners were retirement age and probably did not drive this boat as hard as younger guys. I have never flown the spinnaker and I usually reef when wind speeds are above about 20 knots. Hull speeds of 10-15 knots have been enough excitement for me.

    The feature I most admire about this boat is its ability to sail, point, and balance well in light winds. We once spent almost two weeks during July cruising in the American and Canadian San Juans, an area characterized by light winds and tidal currents. We burned a total of 5 gallons of gas. Anytime the true wind is above 5 knots the F-24 will sail as fast as we typically power.

    The previous owner upgraded to the square-top main and a factory modification to a Mk II rudder which is hung on the transom. I modified the boarding ladder as shown in the pictures. The rest of the boat is stock MkI. The boat has lifelines that fit in sockets on the amas and I have never used these. We are presently sailing in Florida. I like the centerboard in the MKI which can be controlled from the cockpit and kicks up easily if you touch the bottom. The accommodations in the cabin are appropriate for daysailing and overnighting.

    We plan to use the boat in northern Florida during November and in the Florida Keys in February. We can show the boat during these times. The boat will be stored further north the rest of the year if it is not sold.
