    For Sale: Farr 30 - Trunk Monkey

    We are selling the MummFarr. We have been campaigning the 18 in preparation for the JJ's in Australia and the Farr has been sitting on the dock at the SFYC, needlessly neglected.

    We just aren't focused on campaigning it as it should be. Our "fun" boat is the 49er and we have committed to campaigning the 18 for the next few years, so the FarrMumm is on the block.


    Below is the advert we have put out to the class and several prospective teams who have shown interest.

    We are always available for any questions. My email is:

    ninerslr@Yahoo.com

    Thanks,
    Skip McCormack

    Trunk Monkey Price Reduction

    Okay, after lots of deliberation and debate... We are ready to aggressively market the Monkey.

    We are focusing on our 18 foot skiff campaign and the costs of storing and keeping the Monkey in top shape are no longer a priority.

    We have dropped the price to $65,000.

    I can be reached at my email: ninerslr at yahoo.com

    Thanks,
    Skip

    That's $ 27,500.00 in 11 months! (or $2500 per month)

    If I wait 26 months, it will be FREE! And the rate that my savings are depleting the timing will be perfect!

    You don't mention livable amenities, how's the galley, salon and sleeping quarters?

    Hah; yeah, and if you wait 27 months we will pay you to take the thing...

    Livable amenities? Sorry, we are keeping the single burner. But the port-o-potty comes with a seat warmer.

    Let's just say priorities shifted. We just bought another 18 foot skiff that is traveling in the container between NZ, AUS, Europe and SF. We came to the conclusion that we would rather spend our money campaigning the 18 then doing another short handed Pac Cup campaign. So we dropped the price in line with the last 4 Farr's sold in the US over the past 8 months in an effort to aggressively get rid of it.

    Hopefully someone realizes that the only Ovington with a new stick and a new trailer is kind of a good deal...

    We are ready to pass her on and focus elsewhere. Wish we could afford to campaign both.


    (BTW, I was just "informed" our skiffs were renamed, "His" and "Hers". She got the new one. I'm not going to argue...)

    Thanks! We are REALLY damn excited. Howie is keeping his two boats down in LA to use for training and rig/sail testing with the Glasers. He has the two boats pretty evenly matched so the incremental changes in the sail plans and rig stiffness are quickly apparent.

    We are picking up Alex Vallings 'CT Sailbattens', the one of the NZ skiffs that was up here for the SF International event. We don't take possession of the boat until this year's Mark Foy in Auckland. He has picked up his new boat from Van Munster and it's getting put together as we speak.

    We are still working on our boat handling and choreography across the boat, but we will no longer be the only boat with pin-head mains! We have a way to go with our maneuvers, but at least this boat gives us a few years to grow before we have to jump again to catch up with the equipment curve.

    Can not wait for NZ!!
