A project – and some cheap daysailing fun for someone

It may not look much now, but I’d guess this 20ft Scimitar keelboatlisted on eBay could be destined to provide someone with some splendid daysailing fun.

She’s fibreglass, it’s true, but that’s no reason to be nose-in-the-air about her: she was built at a time when layups were heavy and hull shapes were much like the wood built craft, and she’s currently going for a song.

I’d guess that hull would clean up nicely, and looking at the description my guess is that the biggest problem will be moving her… I suppose there aren’t many of us who have friends from whom we can borrow a crane!

Thanks to traditional boatbuilder Marcus Lewis for pointing her out.
