Radio Controlled Sloops
Pair of RC sloop rigged sailboats on display stands for when they are “on the hard.” Boats have 2 control channel servos (rudder and trim for main/jib). The electronics are provided. We can’t attest to the condition of the transmitters or receivers as they have not been tested and might be outdated as these boats are approximately 15 years old. The boats are 36″ LOA, 48″ mast height, and weigh approximately 12 lbs. These are big kid toys, most suitable for pond racing. Sails are pristine and of a fabric similar to rip stop tape. Our FMV estimate is $175.
The Soling is an open cockpit keelboat holding World Sailing “International Class” status. This one design was used as the Olympics’ “Open Three Person Keelboat” 1972-2002. It is a 27′ LOA with a 4.25′ draft and 2277 displacement. This is a lot of boat that can be day sailed or raced. It’s short on relaxation amenities and long in the way of traditional sailing performance. Its most recent history has been in HdGYC Thursday night PHRF racing as a spin boat or in non-spin depending on the crew. The boat has “an old style mast” making it non-competitive against newer models. So, its podium days are over, but its family racing days are here, as are its days as a first boat for a new skipper wanted to get started in big boat day sailing. The action picture is a class advertisement and not the boat for sale. The boat pictured on the galvanized one box trailer is the Abbott #471 being offered. Estimated FMV is $1550 with the high end galvanized trailer.
