Looks clean to me from afar with a very nice trailer setup perfectly for the wing keel. This is actually David Stadler's boat Dalliance, hull # 075. He's a forum member as well (Dalliance ) and in the F235 Directory. You can contact him via the forums. Again, looks to be a nice boat w/ perfect trailer config from afar. It's sailed out of Hoover Reservoir, OH.

I like it because it's clean and sans doghouse graphics not to mention probably the very best trailer "design" for the wing keel.

Hey lchivers, you're just gonna have to jump on one of these. Especially one with a trailer (particularly because your location really requires you to get a trailer with the boat). There seem to have been a lot of good F235s for sale this spring/summer - this is not always the case. When I first started looking, there we're more than 5 available within 500 miles of me over the first 6 months I was looking, and, only two of those had trailers!

Know I've mentioned this trailer a few times above but want to add that I believe this to be the best launch and retrieve design out there with about the lowest height for the F235 and an EXCELLENT entry for the wing that does away with the rear crossbar. This trailer would work with many lakes and ramps that would be tricky for the higher F235 trailer options.

That boat looks to be in excellent condition and the trailer setup is quite nice. Those keel guides will make retrieval much easier. Id say a 15ft extension on a decently sloped ramp and launching would be a breeze.

My Load Rite is just as low as that, plus I can adjust with a movable keel support.

SWEET, I just called. All I need is to get it delivered to Winnipeg. I have a friend that lives there and then I can go pick it up. The guy who listed the boat wasn't there however so now I have to just sit and wait for him to call me back. Do you think people would pick it up and slowly drive it across the country for me as they take their summer holidays. That would be an extraordinary story in today's cynical world.

I'm so excited!

Looks like a great boat and glad you found one. You made the good call over that Hunter, no question about it in my view.

SERIOUSLY!!! I called and he just accepted an offer from a guy in Texas. Not only that. I called on Saturday ready to make an offer and the girl I left a message with didn't pass it along to the sales guy. So I could have had the boat but no. Was it someone here? Sigh, back to the drawing board.

Did you try emailing him directly from this forum as I linked his name? This mail would have gotten to him immediately.

To be honest, perhaps it might not serve you well to list a boat that is a great deal as a headline thread in the forum if you are personally interested in said boat. Remember, the F235 For Sale Forum is the only one in the list that ANYONE can read, whether they are a forum member or not. While it WAS listed in the Yacht World ads, putting yet another link here brings the notice up quite a bit. The best thing when you see a deal is to do some research and see if you can trace the boat. In the case of Dalliance, this name was IN the F235 Directory on the main site. Not only that, but the owner was a forum member and you could have got the jump with an immediate email to his personal address via the forums, something only another member can do.

You did the right thing by contacting the ad contact but a quick personal mail to the owner directly would have really put you in good shape.

Sorry this one got away from you as it appeared to be a good deal with minimal legwork, especially considering the quality of the trailer design which, in my opinion, stands out over any other for the wing keel.

Sorry to hear that. Now go get the one that's closest to you:
http://www.yachtworld.com/core/listing/pl_boat_detail.jsp?currency=USD&units=Feet&checked_boats=1407999&slim=quick&

I know he's asking a bit more for it, but it's a much newer boat (1990), is well equipped, and has a good-looking trailer too. Maybe he'll accept a bit lower offer, or your offer can be made contingent on everything on the boat functioning at the time you pick it up (to make sure you don't get any $$$ surprises when you get it home). I agreed to pay asking price for the one I bought because it was a fair price and there weren't many for sale in 'ready to sail' condition at the time. Then, when he hauled the boat, he found blisters and two tires on the trailer wouldn't hold air: he bought 4 new tires and knocked off the amount his yard would have charged to repair the blisters ($1300). I did ther blister repairs and did OK with the deal in the end.
Good luck.
Don't delay making an offer on a boat that you think is OK for your needs - the good ones being offered at a reasonable price go very fast.

I thought that as soon as I posted it. Oh well, live and learn I guess. I am now checking into the boat that nquigley has pointed out. We'll see what happens.
