Rewarding Boat Project!

Great opportunity for anyone seeking a rewarding boat project! 
As my boating/ racing days are behind me, I’m offering “Heart Breaker” for free. As is – where is. (Safe Harbor Pilot’s Point Marina North Yard – Westbrook, CT)1989 Tartan Thomas 35 Cruiser/ Racer with a lightly used Harken roller furling system and, virtually, new interior cushions. Very lightly used the past 15 years. 
I’ll be saying a final ‘goodbye’ to Heart Breaker soon and wanted to make it available here first. If interested, contact me at 860-391-9316.

Bagatelle is for sale

L. Francis designed a number of boats he called Maine day boats. Aramenta and Quite Tune were a couple. Big day sailors with enough accommodations to be comfortable. If a day sail was just too good to turn back you could keep on going, drop the hook overnight and return the next day or next week. I like that concept.
Bagatelle was designed with this in mind. An easy to handle day sailor, a not too serious racer, and an occasional cruiser.
Cold molded hull, foam cored plywood deck, foam cored fiberglass cockpit and deck house, fractional carbon B&R rig, self tacking jib, stainless steel keel fin with lead bulb. The keel has a trim tab and dagger board. J

ib is roller furled and the main is roller furled on the boom. Get underway in 10 minutes and put away in 10 minutes.
