Hey guys, how are ya?

I am thinking about selling my Turbo, but I don't know what to ask for it. It's a 79 I think (would have to check my records), yellow hulls, yellow tramp. The jib is old and actually ripped a bit last week. :( I have 3 main sails; The worn sail that came with the boat (needs a bolt rope), a nylon sail I made, and a custom square topped North Sails Mylar sail (See thread in this forum). The port hull has a slight soft spot on the inside side... where someone probably stood to right the boat. I intend to repair this before the sale.

She has a trailer... it pretty nasty looking, but works well. New rims and tires last fall.

The tramp lost it's hiking straps before I bought the boat... so I had to rig up some rope to hold the jib blocks. Works fine. The boat did not have a furler when I bought it. I was told it fell off the boat while he was towing... and he never tried to find it.

Also, no trapeze lines or harnesses... only the dog bone.

I was planning on upgrading everything on this boat, but I found a larger boat that I would like to buy.

Thanks,

Dave

From your description, I would guess about $600. I paid $1100 for my 85 turbo and it was in excellent condition. Trailer was perfect, sail was crisp, tramp was good, and no soft spots. It was stored inside.

I'd have to agree. I bought a 14 in similar condition (in Grand Rapids, no less) two years ago for $600.

Spent probably $1,000 on it to get it race ready (new sail, tramp, Comptip, lots of little bits and a whole lot of elbow grease).

Sold it a year later (w/o the trailer) for $800. Kept the new sail, mast and tramp to go on a newer 14 ('85).

Thanks guys.

It looks like I'll be fixing her up after all. The boat I wanted sold this morning. If it was closer I would have bought it last week.
