Hans Christian Crop

Here’s Some of the Boat Deal’s the Author’s Found So Far!

  • He’s gotten several free boats, including a 17-foot, completely restored sloop worth about $1800!
  • Bought a thirty foot trimaran for a hundred bucks! That included a month and a half of slip rent and a new mast!
  • Bought an Islander Bahamas 24 for $350. At the time the mythical market value was about $5,500!

  • Bought a Catalina 22, with trailer, for $600. The boat’s fictional value in “the market” was $6,000!
  • Bought a Columbia 26 for $350 and his old VW Van for which he originally paid $400. A $7000 boat!
  • Bought a Venture 23 sailboat with trailer for four hundred dollars. He’d been enamored by one at a yacht brokerage selling for $10,000! Who’duh thunk it?
  • He bought another Venture 23 with trailer with a new outboard motor, better equipped, for $200!
  • Bought a Bristol 24, a $12,000.00 blue water cruising sloop… believe it or not, he bought it for $600!
  • Bought an Islander 30 for $2500. It included a freshly rebuilt engine, 8 like-new sails, autopilot, VHF, and all sorts of great gear.
  • Bought and Islander 30 for $1900!
  • The ultimate coup (SO FAR!) he bought a Hans Christian 34 for UNDER $5,000. A $68,000 boat!
  • He’s turned down dozens of free boats in varying condition, some quite seaworthy at the time. He’s not talking about rotted out rowboats, either. We’re talking about sailboats and powerboats ranging from 17 feet to over 40 feet.

Jim B!

Jim discovered the world of sailing in 1984 and hasn't slowed down since! He's sailed and cruised (There is a huge difference!) extensively all over US coastal waters, the Bahamas, Canadian inside passage, and Mexico's Sea of Cortez! He's owned in-the-water sailboats and trailer-sailers... and he's cruised both types all over the place! When working ashore, Jim loves how sailing de-stresses his busy lifestyle. He also associates sailing with meditation and can think of no greater way to center himself with this wonderful universe we live in! Whether ashore or out cruising, Jim is always finding ways to improve the cruising experience! Jim's written extensively about the cruising life and self-sufficient cruising!
