Edey and Duff Stone Horse cutter-rigged sloop, 1973
Well maintained with a nice provenance.
Current owner headed home to Alaska. Boat stays.
Well provisioned, she is as set up for near-coastal cruising as you could want for inexpensive waterfront living, nice sunsets and escape.
I have a friend who said "if she were a car she could morph into an MG-TD, without the screwed up electrics"
All lines are led aft. While standing protected below you are able to douse/raise sail so quickly that it is as easy to do so as to worry about not doing it.
Sheet-to-tiller self-steering was invented for this rig!
She has a sewing machine Honda 4-stroke/ 9.9 hp and can 360 in her own length.
There is little on this boat to go wrong. In fact, the nicest part is that she has not been kludged up with crap.
Anyway, please take a look, pass the word to any discerning friends, and see if she might fit into your plans.
usual stuff: Uniden VHF, barometer, fire extinguisher, cast iron solid fuel stove, ice box, 24# yachtsman anchor and rode, 3 gallon fuel tank, 12 gallon water tank, kerosene lamps, 12 volt electrics.
