1974 Gulf Coast 20

  • with trailer and outboard, ready to sail today!
  • Length 19'11", beam 6'11"
  • Ballast #175 swing keel
  • Draft 9" keel up/ 4" down
  • Original main and jib, worn but still plenty of life left
  • Light-air spinakker with a few quite small patched tears.
  • Fractional rig with jiffy-reefing grommets in main.
  • Homemade whisker pole, dowel holding hardware on one end is broken, but could be easily fixed with new dowel.
  • Solid aluminum kick-up rudder and laminated tiller, both in fine shape.
  • New registration as of 5/06
  • Brand new (less than 10 miles) tires/rims on trailer.
  • I was told when buying this boat a few months ago that the rigging was quite new, and it appears to be in great shape. When I raised the mast to test everything, the rig appeared to be taut and quite well tuned already.
  • Brand new mainsheet setup from Garhauer
  • Two new stand-up blocks on t-track for jib sheets, also from Garhauer
  • All new (never used!) 1/4" sheets and halyards
  • Outboard is an old (70s?) 7.5 horse Ted Williams (Sears) outboard with new head gasket and plastic fuel tank.
  • Outboard bracket has adjustable height.
  • Two class V PFDs and two class IV throwable PFDs (seat cushions)

    This boat is very sound, in construction and condition. The fiberglass is quite thick, and those who I've spoken to about this design all agree that it is a very tough boat. The cockpit is quite large for a boat this size, should be good to go out with family and friends. Cuddy cabin could probably sleep two full-grown adults, with proper padding on v-berth.

    It breaks my heart to have to sell it before even having a chance to get her wet, especially after all the hours of getting her prettied up and equipped. But my truck seems to think that a new engine is a higher priority, so those are the breaks.

    Sold today, thanks so much!
