I actually saw that listing before and spent some time looking her over. I have been somewhat dreading the learning curve on a single screw inboard. It's been 50+ yrs. since I last sat at the helm of one. I can imagine that Tolly with all that sail area could be a real handful.oldboat1 wrote:Kicker rig here as well, on mine anyway (slow trolling for lakers):
I was looking at a Tollycraft some time ago (Maryland) that was a donation sale -- passed on it, and felt a little sorry I did. I had seem them in Seattle in my Dawg days, and like the layouts. Just for grins, found a 26' at Shilshole Bay: http://wrightyachtsales.com/1977-tollycraft-26/
Good luck in the search (looking is at least half the fun).
My dry stack marina is on a river with pretty strong tidal currents. It can be very "entertaining" to watch folks coming into the take out docks when the current is ripping one direction and the wind is gusting up in another. Or when the wind and current are screaming the same direction. You better nail your landing the first time 'cause you're not going to get a go 'round.
So I think my single handing days are over when I find m F boat.
