Cal 3-30 For Sale

I apologize to my subscribers for this digression from the main theme of my blog, but I have a couple of boats to sell before I can embark on my next adventure and this was a convenient place to display information for potential buyers.

1974 Cal 3-20 Blue Note

The Blue Note was a fully functional 30' sailboat worth about $15,000 until last March when I failed to realize that someone had left the head valve open after a day sail and she sank in her slip.  This happened just weeks before I was due to leave the country for a couple of months, but we managed to get her cleaned up and stabilized before I left and I planned to repair and sell her when I returned.  Unfortunately, My insurance company decided to cancel my insurance right as I was in the middle of selling an out-of-area home and I was unable to complete the repairs necessary to pass the survey necessary to get insured by a different company before my insurance ran out.  I was forced to haul the boat out and store her on land.  At this point, I just don't have the time necessary to deal with restoring her, so have decided to sell her at a very reduced price just to lower my stress level.

I have had this boat for 15 years and sailed it everywhere from Sacramento to Bodega Bay.  It is a very sturdy and stable boat.  I will really miss it, but I just have too many other issues to handle at the moment.  Unlike most fixers, she is ready to sail and can be used during the repair process.
