Selling the ĎOoh La Laí after five years of restorations and sailing.
I hesitated putting her up for sale but I need a bigger boat that can go offshore.
Hereís what she has -Brand new still in the bag sail from Precision Sails complete with Stars and Stripes printed just like the original sail-see the last pic showing the design specs I sent to the sailmaker.
Sail is made of Bainbridge sailcloth and comes with all the battens and two reef lines.
Cost was $2100. -tabernacle mast mount -two new deep cycle batteries in 2022 -new flexible Sunpower 50W solar panel with new Renogy inverter/charging station -BW radio with 8' high-gain Shakespeare antenna -Lowrance Elite 5 dual GPS and depth finder.
Depth sensor is mounted to the hull -automatic bilge pump -Shore power hookup -Simrad Tiller Pilot TP10 -reupholstered cabin cushions in excellent condition -4HP Nissan 4-stroke in the engine well with custom forced air feed to overcome the chronic collecting of exhaust gases in the well that these boats are known for.
Includes new spare propeller and plug. -custom bronze running lights off an antique ChrisCraft -mast light -bottom paint done in 2020 itíll probably need to be redone at the end of the season if you leave her in a slip -Teak refinished in 2020.
The sun was pretty hard on it in 2021 and 2022 and could use touching up see photos for some examples -Original all-bronze hardware -Sheets and halyards in very good condition.
Most are new either in 2020 or 2021 -No soft spots anywhere on the deck or hull -Lazy Jacks -Includes the original sail the one pictured.
You might be able to revitalize it if you have some sail making skills -Sail cover it is home made and works great but I donít have sail making skills.
Dual axle Trailer in great shape.
Front axle has electric brakes.
It has taken the Ooh La La as far north as Timís Ford Lake and as far south as Sarasota bay.
