    eBay Ariel SF boat '62

    FYI - pretty recognizable bright yellow color, I imagine someone knows who she used to own?

    Boat Angel is "brokering" MaiKai #76 as a charity donation. Hopefully she finds a new home. Age and losing my crew brings me to this point. It's a hard decision.

    My condolences, Bill - I can only imagine how tough it must be. I've a friend/sailFar member who pointed out the auction to me. I told him that she looked like she had 'great bones', but he lives in Maine and cannot figure out how to get her across the continent on his budget.
    ( Getting Frank to bring her over on his way home was one idea raised, but we figured she would show up with a hot tub on her new Lido Deck, or as a trawler, if Frank had possession of her for very long... )

    In all seriousness, though, I've known a few people who have bought their boats from Boat Angel, including an A-35 from my next-door slip, and they have all been appreciative of the deal they got, and to at least a small degree, knowledgeable about Classic Plastic, the Alberg 'design philosophy', so to speak. In my estimation, that means they are going to a home as best as could be hoped for, one where they are appreciated for what they are, and where they'll get care and use, and not abandoned or forgotten.

    New Skipper for A-76 is Kenny, who lives in Kingman, AZ. Plans to keep the boat on one of the big inland lakes (Lake Powell?). He has purchased a trailer for the move, which will likely be February. Once I get vaccinated, we'll get together at the boat to go over the systems, etc. I'm sure Maika'i will enjoy fresh water for a change.
