Anyone know who purchased Windows-the Fairchild Scout in Maine?

https://www.yachtworld.com/boats/198...build-3093874/

I hear it's staying in Maine.

Was looking at this boat, offered 70 last year, it finally sold according to sold boats on Yachtworld.

I missed this opportunity. Contact me when it's time to sell.

On the trailer is the one I should have purchased, Windows.

Purchasing the one in water having shipped to Lake Keowee, SC by 11-19.

Thanks! I am buying the second boat in the pictures above, but eventually might want the first boat if and when I can find it etc. The second boat is coming from Long Beach, being loaded today, here on Monday. Fingers crossed, long trip of 2300 miles.

Thanks, I really like the way your boat looks. And with a real history of being seaworthy.

Hi, yes, I should have taken the trip to visit you as we have spoken on the phone and emailed. You even have a bow thruster! Let me know if you have any cool parts I can put on the basic one I have pictured here.

Still looking for Windows....in Maine I've been told.

LER, "and my wife wants me off the varnish ladder."

Based upon my experience with my Nordhavn, 'varnish' is a dirty word to me.

Thank you! Looks like you have a Scout? Which? Is that the one that came from Lake Murray?

I do have a Fairchild Scout 30 Hull #2 It lived on a mooring off the Newport Harbor Yacht Club in Newport Beach California from 1979 until I bought it in 2015. I am currently doing a minor refit in North Florida. Will be launching early 2019.

Very cool! The Scout is such a unique boat, beautifully done with a touch of class. Love the skylight or glass hatch that lets in plenty of light, the stand up cabin, and touches of teach and bronze hardware. Did I mention real portholes? I think mine is hull number 6.

This must be your boat. You stole her lol! I wish mine had a mast and a cockpit headliner. Sea Flute is very basic...looks like you have a newer Yanmar as well if this is the boat I am thinking of. Nice boat indeed.
