Adopt a 24’ Sailboat

For the last few years I haven’t had the time to sail Manana, my 24 foot Columbia.  It would be wonderful if someone on the island might take possession—with one string attached: that being I might sail her once-in-awhile.  The mainsail and furling genoa are in excellent shape. She has a bit more sail than a Sprite and the deck is a few inches higher off the water.  The 8 horse Evenrude has low hours.  She could use a paint job, but otherwise she’s old (196?) but sturdy and a perfect day-sailor.

I’m on and off the island through September.  Contact me by calling 207 841 9418 or email rdvseymour at
