I am not necessarily looking for a Bolger sailboat but I am looking
for a sailboat due to many factors... increase in fuel costs, smell
of diesel fumes from engines (yuck) and I miss the serenity of
sailing. I do not know the name and number but am trying to gather
information. I can't seem to find anything online. I have been
looking through books recently though. Thanks for your reply.
