1. The Marketplace Forums can be useful for members who know one another well from forum discussions and offline communications and wish to post boatbuilding tools, drafting tools, molds and tooling, and other professional equipment for sale or trade. However, caution and good judgement should always be used. Especially when considering any business with anyone not already well known to you and trusted, due diligence must be used to confirm details and identity and be sure the transaction is safe before any money or property changes hands. Always use good judgement and perform due dilligence and follow these guidelines.

    I Have the prototype of the “Outrigger 26”, also called the “Somersault”. I originally purchased the boat to restore and sail inter-island in Hawaii, but that “dream” never materialized. Work, family, and you know…
    26’ Over all. Demountable, no interior, rotating mast, I don’t think the sails are still good. All rigging. The person that I purchased the boat from had been sailing it so I think with some new sails, it is sailable. Dick Newick checked it out about 10 years ago and felt it was still good. No rot.
    The boat has been stored in Colorado for 17 years. I’m 74 and still actively involved in work, etc, and still too busy, so I don’t think I’ll get the opportunity to restore it. I am interested to give it to someone that can come to Colorado and take it. The trailer needs some work, so some time will be require to check it out before it can be taken.
