Scott Church Posted January 25, 2005 Report Share Posted January 25, 2005 Unlike a lot of you guys I have only room for a single trailered vessel so when I get the itch to acquire something different to spice up life (a monthly event) I'm forced to consider selling my beloved CS17. I am at that point now and really on the fence about parting with her. So I'll just type this out and see if I click send or not. I consider her the best sail camping boat for my sailing grounds (West Coast of Florida). I regularly sail camp the barrier islands here. For those of you not familiar with this boat it was built by Gordy Hill who is a regular contributor to this forum (use the search function to see his posts, many regarding this boat). The layout is slightly different from the plans in that there is a large casting (and sleeping) area between the masts. It should be obvious in the pictures. She is structurally in great shape with only cosmetics needed to bring her back to her original condition. As for the price Gordy gave me what I consider a great deal which I'll pass on to her next owner provided they're a CS17 fan (which is why this where I'm posting here). Boat and Trailer for $2500 which I would guess is about half the cost of raw materials (check out the custom tent in the pictures). Sawdust is located in Dunedin FL. My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org. I may have to get Frank's help for adding pictures to this post but for now check out the pics and info authored by Gordy at http://groups.msn.com/SmallBoats/gordyscoresound17.msnw?albumlist=2 and a couple of pictures from last Saturday's sail can be seen at http://members.ij.net/wctss/wctss/photo4.htm and a pic of my family at the Cedar Key event can be seen at http://members.ij.net/wctss/wctss/ck3.htm A google search with the keywords gordy and core sound or maybe sawdust should pick up a few more pics. Let's see now... submit or delete... submit or delete... hmmm. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
