Santa Barbara for Sale on feeBay

Ran across this in my email in-box this morning...

Figured I'd keep it local The boat is down in Monterey, so special attn to the central coast guys. (yeah, Areo, I mean you )

Last of the 'hen's teeth;' an honest-to-godz Vortex Santa Barbara Kit, still in the factory box with (what looks like) all the fixin's!!

* keel

This is a big boat in a BIG box.

Local pickup in Monterey preferred.
ps. He's serious about not local pickup only... already refused to discuss shipping twice.

So.... Who got the Santa Barbara??? Anyone of us??? (I didn't... But I will say it went for about the same price as an assembled one back in the 70s. Seriously killer deal!!)

And Ken, thanks for posting those craigslist postings; that big yacht sure is tempting!!!! Drool!

Had a few minutes to kill, checked out Craigslist. There is a Newport 12 listed. There was one listed about a month ago. I suspect that this might be the same model. Last one was listed at $700, this listing is $900. I did a phone # lookup, and the sellers phone # is from Ukiah.

The add can be seen here..

Tim It is for the Power Squadron and if it turns good it is in the running. The Coral Reef with the inlay belongs to J. Garis who is a longtime member.
