LETS SELL SOME MORE BOATS!


So far in 2019 6 boats have changed hands in the Region, and Chris Bligh’s boat in Blaine has been chartered for the NA’s (but is still for sale afterwards). 
 
At present there are only 5 boats for sale in the Pacific Northwest and Alberta and you can see them all on the Fleet One Buy&Sell page here.
 
The most likely buyers are folks we already know:
  • M242 crew who want their own boat to race
  • People who own other boat types and want to switch, or could be talked into it
  • People who have expressed an interest in getting back into racing One Design, etc.
If you have anyone in your orbit who fits that description, steer them to the Buy&Sell page and walk them thru the attributes of the various boats that are listed.
 
In 2018 we had 9 boats change hands, 2 retained ownership, and 1 moved to BC from Ontario! (and it is racing in the NA’s - look for Coal Dust, #45) Quite a development, and one that builds on the 7 or so boats that changed hands in 2017. Perhaps this is the year we really clear out the modest backlog.
 
The 2019 NA’s are at Orcas Island in Washington State on June 29/30, so use this as a selling tool with potential buyers, where they can join 27 other boats for some tight racing!
 
If you or the potential buyers have any questions about the boats for sale, contact the owners or Michael Clements (michael.clements13@gmail.com).
