299Micro for Sale Seattle WA
- Sep 1, 2005I'm reluctantly selling my - admittedly "fixer" - Micro due to lack
of time and space. Tanbark sails are in excellent condition. Foot of
mainmast has some separation and should be glued and clamped.
Interior not finished. When I got it there was some rot in the hull,
bottom forward; I used CPES on it after scrapping out the soft stuff,
then epoxyed in a sheet of 1/8 plywood inside. It's my first attempt
with epoxy, a bit of a messy job. Some water still came in and I'm
not sure why. Now she's been on the trailer (safely tarped, with
ventilation) for 2 years and I'm facing reality. (That, and I just
bought Joe Tribulato's Oldshoe - that eases the pain of letting go of
this vision.) The sliding hatch must have broken at some point, and
the second owner has a hinged hatch, which is quite silly and needs
to be replaced. Trailer has new wheels and tires, and was rewired
when I got it (3 years ago.) It has a long trough for the keel, and
bunks on the sides. I would replace the bunk supports. If I were to
keep it, that would be the next thing I would do. I would also have
someone mount the lights up at the top rather than at bumper level as
I've broken the light going over curbs.
Boat is in Seattle, WA. I have no idea what it is worth. Email is
tough for me to access right now, so if you'd like to make me an
offer, call 206 387-7437. Much thanks.
