Careel 18' for free...Almost

Postby 6602steven » Fri Sep 09, 2016 8:34 am

Hi everyone.

I bought a Careel 18 (mki I think) years ago as a project when I lived overseas. Not long after I returned to Sydney in a rush so I chopped the flogged out mast (I was returning to a job as a mast builder with a yacht rigger and planned to build a new mast its here but for measurements only) and threw the boat in a container with all my furnitureand other stuff and brought it home. In the years since I've done nothing with it and although I'd love to do a ground up rebuild on it its Cnr time to move it on and admit defeat.

Most of its there but nearly everything needs attention. Needs new centerboard, mast and rigging, hull needs stripping, patching up little bits and painting, trailer is for storage only

Sails pictured

Price? Make an offer and bring a flat bed. It's got to go in the next couple of weeks. Will accept beer hahaha

Don't look at me! I have nowhere where I can put it, never mind a place to work on it. :D My boat is currently parked behind a neighbour's vacant block a few doors away from my place. Until the day comes when he starts building - then things will get harder.

Good luck with the sale though.

Hi there,

If you come up short and no -one would would like to take it on and do it up (which would be wonderful to see) I would be interested in the sails if the boat is being scrapped. I do hope you manage to give it away but if not then let me know. Maybe try gumtree for free section, may get someone surfing the net for a cheap boat to do up.

Cheers,
Ben
