Hull Number: 60
Great boat, that we have loved sailing and racing, however our current situation (work + kids) doesn’t allow us to use her. Past Nationals (1994) and PCCs (2003) winner. We’d love to see her go to someone who will sail actively in the fleet! Up to date California 2018-2019 registration.
Overall good condition. We raced her actively in the NW, but she hasn’t been sailed in 2 years since we relocated to the Bay Area, and so there’s the normal type of stuff to be done to bring her out of mothballs (some specific things we know of listed below).
Bottom and topsides are gelcoat (never had bottom paint), under-deck hatch installed (2014), traveller dropped to cockpit, toe rail removed aft of the mast. In 2015 Jim Betts faired the rudder, installed a new rudder bushing, and painted the interior. New pipe berths made and installed at the same time.
Santa Cruz sails main, #1, and #3 from 2016, only used for one partial season.
Road-worthy galvanized single axle trailer (lights, hydraulic brakes, recent tires and spare).
- Velocitek Pro-Start
- Full set of v-berth cushions in good condition
- Tohatsu 2-stroke 5hp long-shaft engine (good delivery engine)
- Two masts and two booms (1 set Ballenger, 1 set unknown section)
- SC sails main, #1, and #3 (2016), UK-Halsey carbon mains (x2, 2008?), UK-Halsey spinnakers (x2, 1 good, 1 usable), miscellaneous other headsails.
- Standard set of running rigging, blocks, etc.
- Stereo, and basic onboard electrical system (motorcycle battery, lights, usb charger, etc.). All rewired in 2016.
- Rudder cover for travel (2016)
- Deck cover for dry storage (older)
- Digital Depth Finder (HawkEye, new in box).
Comments on condition
As mentioned we haven’t been able to sail her in > 2 years, so she is in need of some basic TLC. What we are aware of that would be a minimum to get out sailing would be:
- Replace/repair tiller (some delam from sitting out)
- Replace hoist straps
- Outboard was serviced and put away with dry carb after last use, but may need servicing to get it running again.
A more extended list of things that we would consider doing if we were keeping her and planning on racing actively (in no particular order):
- Replace standing rigging, and fix up mast rigging. Currently the boat is setup to use the Ballenger mast, which was a hand-me-down from Webb Chiles’ boat when he re-rigged. The standing rigging is of unknown age and probably should be replaced. Likewise we had just begun sorting out how we wanted to route the halyards, clutches etc, so this could be fixed up and improved.
- Paint deck. The deck paint is faded, and the non-skid is slippery in some places, particularly the cockpit.
- Sand bottom. There are a few isolated patches with what appear to be small dimples in the gelcoat, these appear to be only in two 12”x12” patches where a pair of old trailer pads sat. There is also a very small patch (~6”x6”) on the keel where some paint or coating is flaking.
