I have a free boat for anyone that wants it:

This boat is the swing Keel version.  She has been in a lift for the last 10 years.  She is at Smith Mountain Lake, VA   I'll sell a trailer for it if you need one.

PM me for more info

Might be a great boat but that form/function following thing? ...  makes it very ugly.
Looks more like a spaceship than a sailship. Somebody had to say it.

It's not a bad boat. Just not a traditional looking boat. The kind I like. Just me. Boats should look like this.
Can't beat the price though.

Might be good to chop saw apart for the fittings.

skip.

OH No, Tim, please don't tell me you are starting on a fleet reduction program. ;)  I currently use you as an example when trying to convince the Admiral we need another boat. ;D

Looks like a flush deck.  One of my early boats was a flush deck.  Had more fun with that thing.  The deck was usually covered with various wives and/or girlfriends of the crew sunbathing.  When we were young.....

Brack,

My Fleet suddenly increased in total fleet feet by 44.  This boat and a 24' pontoon.  Both were "FREE" boats.  My storage yard is beginning to look like a boatyard.  So many boats, so little time.  He who dies with the most boats, wins? ???

Tim - when you get offered a free Com-Pac 35, I'd very much appreciate a personal message before you post it. The 35 will be way too big for your lake, and I will do you a favor and take care of the transportation down to NC. No need to thank me.

Tonnage,

So a free boat with trailer. Isn't it supposed to be the other way around?   ;D

But seriously, that is cool to offer up a free boat.  Christmas spirit must of moved ya 8)

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder! Frankly I have seen other similar designs that with the proper trim paint looked great! Besides FREE is beautiful! Sail on RK20! ;D

Love the PLAID cushions - brings back so many 70's memories

Could there possibly be SHAG carpet in the cabin?

I'm with you Craig, I have always thought a flush deck could be quite attractive, especially when I am foredeck and jibing the shute.
Happy sailing all.

Okay then  - some pics  of the boat and trailer:

Trailer :



Extend-O-Hitch:



Under tow to the marina:



On the trailer front starboard quarter:



Front port quarter:



Port quarter stern:



Starboard quarter stern:



Through the hatch:



Well, there you have her L & Gs, a dirty but FREE boat.  The dirt is accumulated mildew on the exterior and dirt dauber nest mud on the inside.  The PO's widow said the bottom paint was applied in 1997 and was never sailed again.  This boat just sat suspended over the water for the last 16 years.  I have a record of every dime spent on this boat since it was purchased new.  As a side note, while the sister boat the Ensenada 20 is a fractional rig, the RK20 is a masthead sail plan.
