Winslow. The boat was well-built, 10" centers (massive) and well maintained by a great sailor. Good boats and good people
have good karma... even though old, but by hard work, someone kept her up. I'll be looking at the boat in Santa Barbara...probably
spend the night on it...soon I'll shoot some more info, pictures and video. Call me if you want to see her 310 961-4456 or
Seeking a new lover for this lovely, classic 30’ sloop considered by many to
“the prettiest boat in the harbour”.
Excellent for couple, easy to singlehand. Surfs like a
dream in heavy seas.
Winning record at McNish Classic for years. Great karma.
