Selling “Bob” named after Fred’s dad is bittersweet.  Since we purchased her in 2002 we enjoyed sailing if almost exclusively in Kittery, Maine on our tidal creek.  Now a it older with aging hips and knees and slowing down a bit we think it’s time for BOB to have a new home.


Here’s some history:

Bob lives on a mooring and when the tide is out the boat sits on the mud.  Because of that the bottom has some slight discoloration.  No problems with the fiberglass though.  In 2013, a tree limb fell on Bob after a snowstorm causing a crack in the deck and damage to the rubrail.  We had the repairs professionally done in York, ME and it came out looking excellent.  The trailer has been used very little as we launch right from our property.   The boat is in very good condition.
