Santa Barbara class model


Santa Barbara class model sail boat, built by my brother Jeff Matthews on a commercial f/g hull (I don't know whose).
AMYA page on Santa Barbara class: https://www.theamya.org/boats/santabarbara/

Jeff left us suddenly last weekend. He also left us this model yacht, a near-six-foot Santa Barbara class. We were tempted to offer this for free to a good home, but Jeff left us with another gift- Chester and Push. Jeff was a professional farrier, and a civil war re-enactor here in California, and he often rode Chester into battle as part of the California 100. But Chester and his buddy Push are now both retired in the hills above Benicia California... and they need oats... and shoes... and who knows what else. So we need to turn this model into oats.

Here's the deal: I'm here in Benicia this weekend, and through Monday. If you can come meet me and pick up the model, and make a fair contribution to Chester and Push's oats fund, the model is yours. Absolutely no shipping.

Very sorry for your loss!

From the sail number that is a Vortex hull.

If only I was out there now, I would buy it with no hesitation. Too bad there is no easy way to bring it back.

Best wishes

Don
