What a find. That would be the oldest Vagabond we've seen. I'll bet there's yellow paint chips on the highway from NY to PA.

His daughter just started to drive. If he or I turn it in,, his insurance will go up more than the couple grand it will take to repair it. :roll: George, did the spark gap patch the faulty coil problem ? My phone is dead.

It was a great trip and what a beautiful part of America. We got lots of " don't really want to sell that"s din't we? Hey I know George is your friend but I say have the Dakota done at the shop. That's why we have insurance. John

Beautiful ship...er, BOAT. A Vagabond that small could hardly be called a ship, so beautiful boat Mark! ;)




A boat could sit on a ship, but a ship can not sit on a boat. How long is this boat anyway? What's the beam?

Well John I had everything pretty well lined up. You make a list and don't deviate from it. But then the unexpected happens. while we were staying at my friends house. His daughter backed the car out of the driveway and wiped out the bed on the left side of the Dakota. That stuff happens,,,but he want's to pay for it out of pocket. That means I'm going to have to devote my time to the repair instead of dropping it off at the body shop for a re-skin. Tear up the list and start over. The Lone Star will not be put on the back burner,,but the Comanche might be. :(

Mark,
Congratulations on another nice find. I'm sure it will be in first class condition when you are finished. Does this mean the Lone Star will be put on the back burner?
