  1. Hi y'all. My family is selling our Core Sound 17 (B&B Yacht Designs) since moving to the Four Corners region. Built in Spring 2015 at Farley Boatworks in Port Aransas, TX. It is registered in TX currently and has only touched the water a handful of times. It has always been stored under a roof and wrapped in tarps and out of the sun/UV/elements. It is now located by Mesa Verde National Park in Southwest Colorado. No detail skipped with this build, as we thought this would be a "forever" family boat with dreams of doing the Texas 200. My mom and dad built it and it sailed my wife and me off into the sunset after our wedding ceremony. Aluminum masts, custom oars, Propulsion electric outboard motor, and custom Coastline aluminum trailer (built in Seadrift, TX). Materials, paint, rigging, and sails alone were about $12k. Asking $10,000 for everything - boat, custom oars, rigging/sails, electric outboard motor, and trailer. However, it's time for us to move on from it. We're not doing it justice by not getting it in the water. We are willing to deliver to almost anywhere in the lower 48. Please reach out to Travis Ramos at travisterrellramos@gmail.com OR call/text at 361.401.1698 for any questions or interest. Below are some picture of it out on the water as well as some of it currently with us in Colorado. I can provide more pictures and details upon request. Thank you!
  2. Core Sound 17 project ready for completion. The hull and internal framing have been complete, with seats and decking rough-cut to size. Centerboard blank glued up but not shaped. This is the aft-deck version of B&B's popular design, but it could still be converted to aft-cockpit. Built to plans except for a modification to create a curved transom approved by the designer. All plywood is top quality okoume from Boulter plywood. Wood materials to complete the boat included, along with full plans and aluminum for two masts. No rigging, sails or sails hardware. Those can be purchased as kits from B&B Yacht Designs. I really hate to part with this project, but am moving and cannot bring it with me. Boat always stored in garage. It is currently on a building cradle easily moved on a flatbed, but it could be taken off and put on a regular boat trailer. You would need to arrange transport. Can be seen any day of the week in Concord, MA. $2,000, but will consider any reasonable offers. More build pictures available (see the links to my old build threads in the signature below)
  3. I really like the design of the Core Sound 17 and would like to see one in person. Are there any builders of Core Sound 17 in Minnesota or Wisconsin that want to show off their boat? I live in the Minneapolis / St Paul area and am willing to drive to see your boat. Steve
  4. Hi All, I've got a related thread going on my keel maintenance project (link below) but this is a little more specific. I've combed the forums some but haven't found what I'm looking for. Feel free to point me the right direction if you know of something. Anyway...the keel-replacement project is growing the more I look at the bottom and on one of the seams on my Core Sound 17, there is enough unevenness to want to fair it out. However, I've trying to avoid using fairing compound because I don't like the idea of sanding down to get to the epoxy because I've found that so far I end up hitting the weave of the fiberglass and I don't want to go all the way to wood, re-epoxy, reglass, and then prime/fair/etc. If there is an easy way to strip it (latex paint) without doing that, I'm all ears. In lieu of fairing compound, I've been thinking that I could scrub enough of the paint to get down to the primer only and then put high build primer on and go from there. I'm not looking for a perfect finish--or even close. I want to get this boat ready to get back on the water. But the seam is bad enough that I prefer to tackle this much while I have it flipped over. So specifically (though I am open to a whole different approach too)... 1) What high-build primer is good for this application? Looking for specific product recommendations. Only want to buy a quart. 2) Are there better ways to remove the paint without harming the weave? (I'd be ok with fairing compound if I could get a good starting point that the compound would stick too.) I will be repainting the whole bottom with the same paint I already have since it's (a) the same color and (b) the same as what was put on originally. All of course once I am done with fairing this bit out, attaching the keel+skeg and reinforcing the bow for abrasion with Xynole. Thanks in advance. -Bryan
