Sherry funny story ... when I reached out here I had a contract on the one you mention in the above post.  I did not proceed with that purchase, but your owners list led me to Serenity, which I purchased last week  :).  I cannot thank you enough for sharing that list!

Congratulations, she looks great!  I admire your perseverance.

If you decide to head down to the Caribbean and find yourself in need of a full boat sun cover in the original burgundy color give me a shout.  They appear to be in very good condition.  I have a few of the SS support poles as well but I've never put it up and really don't know if all the pieces and parts are there.  They are in storage in NC.

Hello Sherry,

Yes on Lake Erie for now. Heading for the North Channel next year and then down the East Coast to Marathon and points unknown.

Hello All,

Attached please find the photo of the Erie Queen (formally Buckeye Queen) finally sailing after extensive refit.

We started about 11 years ago working part time on her. She had sunk at the dock on the Potomac River in Washington DC before we purchased her and was then moved to Sandusky, OH on Lake Erie. Every system has been replaced including engine, electrical, plumbing all rigging, sails, etc., etc., etc. The interior, deck, bottom, etc., etc., etc. has been varnished, painted, barrier coated. Way too many things to list here. She is now ready for another 40+ years of sailing.

As many on this site know it is defiantly a labor of love and to go on the first sail, well you all know!!! This site and members have been a VERY valuable tool during this process.

Thanks to all that contribute and keep this site running.

I think you are figuring right.once the water level reaches the vent then your trying to push water out the vent. Maybe a small tube on top with a T to the larger tanks are aluminum did yours come in fiberglass fron the factory?

I finally found the listing.  It was listed a few years ago at $120K, now it's listed for $59,000.  Big drop!  If it is in great shape that's a helluva price. But...

Interesting that the best photos of the boat in the listing (the first and last one) show the name as Camperdown, which is the old name under a prior owner, so you can be assured that those beautiful pictures on the listing with the shiny hull and sails are NOT CURRENT.

That is the first "buyer beware" flag.

The deck is still teak and in fairly bad shape.  By now most people have pulled up their teak decks and fiberglassed the deck.  Teak decks are beautiful when new, but they tend to leak.

You need to ask about the rigging.  When was it last re-rigged?

The layout looks identical to a Walkthrough, and that was our boat.  It's a great layout.  I don't know a lot about Antigua construction, though.

Make sure you get a survey!

Good luck!
