      I missed the pictures.  Did you send them?  In any case, I'm very interested in them.  What are you asking for them?  Thanks, Chuck

      Hi Chuck ~~

      Yes, I do have the grab rails from the cabin top. They are sanded and awaiting finish -- I'll take pictures and measurements tomorrow and send them to you.

      Do you have the teak "grab handles" that run along both sides of the cabin top? If you do, I'm very interested.  Chuck Teggatz

      Hi all ~~

      What with her having ALL the traditional Saber rot, and the engine being dead, she's become almost too much of a project for me to handle.
      Being quite sick the past 6 months hasn't helped either and has meant I haven't been able to do anything on her.
      And the yard bills have mounted.

      The yard owner has suggested I part her out and sell her for scrap. I don't want to do it, but I have to be fair to him and he needs the space.

      Most everything is in as good condition as it can be for a 40 year old boat. I have 85% of the parts to put her back together -- better than she was.
      I'm making anything you can think of available for sale.
      If I have enough interest to meet the yard bill in the next few days, I'll scrap her to you so (better) boats can survive, otherwise ...

      Anyone interested in any of these at fair market price ... ?

      - Ritchie compass
      - binacle
      - bow pulpit
      - stern pushpit
      - life line stanchions
      - teak toe rail
      - aluminum toe rails (used, to replace the teak)
      - Garmin 440S (never installed)
      - interior salon table
      - teak cockpit table
      - Edson steering mechanism
      - rudder
      - deck hardware
      - interior doors
      - mast, boom & standing rigging
      - brand new running rigging (never used)
      - newer bronze flanged through-hulls (to replace the old, poorly rebedded valves)
      - 4 newer plastic port lights (drilled to bolt through the cabin top)
      - newer under-v-berth plastic water tank (shaped to bow)
      - original waste holding tank
      - 2 stainless sinks (deeper than the originals)
      - 2 Lewmar self-tailing winches, 2 barlows (need attention)
      - Westerbeke 21a (three-banger) said to have "no compression"

      If you want the hull and deck, here's the list of what's been gutted out. She had a bad case of the "begats" where finding one problem led to another ...

      -- starboard bulkhead (port one replaced some time ago)
      -- compression post support
      -- sole stringers
      -- sole over bilge
      -- heads commode platform
      -- starboard half-bulkhead (at the galley)
      -- edges of most furniture where it meets anything listed above
      -- bulkhead and bottom of anchor well
      -- deck for 12" either direction of chainplate holes
      -- deck for 6" of any deck hardware.
      -- about 70 blisters I fixed on the bottom (there are more)
      -- through hulls poorly fitted and bedded (mainly just with globs of 5200 which leaked)

      Any input or offers appreciated.
