    Abe, I have a Thomas Colvin 42' Ketch (Gazelle) that I have been working on and sailing for 5 years it is in excellent condition. If you are interested in discussing buying it let me know. I have gotten two old for my dream and reluctantly may need to part with her. I am ready to make the right person a great deal.

    Hello, Mr. Shaffer, I work with several sail cargo projects based both here in Europe and the Caribbean. I’m always n the hunt for new projects and ideas coming up, yours sounds interesting. Don’t know if this thread is still active but if so, I’d be much interested to hear more about what your planing to do, perhaps I’ve some useful information. Have you hear about the Coastal Explorers? Also an English based company using small boats for a little sail cargo.
    Fair winds,
    Jake

    I still have the boat and have not made any attempts to sell her. I just know that I'm getting to old to keep maintaining her and she is to good a boat to let that happen. A brief history is that in 1989-90 she was put in a barn and kept there for 20 years. In that time the builder/owner kept tinkering with her with a new engine, appliance, new cabin top, etc. I have owned her since 2012 and done another 20,000.00 in work. If I could sell her for what I have in her it would be nice.

    Best Regards,

    I believe I was confused regarding the thread. However, if someone is interested in this nice Thomas Colvin. I am having the sails cleaned this winter. The builder was incredible both inside and outside.
