Mark Stachom's 1971 Blue Yankee Dolphin FOR SALE, Honokohau Harbour, Kona, Hawaii (updated January 23, 2016)

January 23, 2016. We came across a Sailboats Listing ad for this boat, originally posted in Novenber, 2011, but still up. We'll try at reach Mark if the blizzard going on in the Northeast today lets us. Here's the ad - same pictures as the Craigslist ad of 2011 (below) which has expired, and same contact info. We had a report from Jerry Horan, #210 that this boat was still at Honokohua Harbor.


December 4, 2011. We spoke to Mark Stachom today and we will talk again soon. He has had the boat for several years, having bought her from a lady who has single handed her back and forth to California. The boat has been converted from a centerboard to a fixed keel and 'beefed up' for blue water sailing - heavier standing rigging, a main hatch cover/sea hood, and a stainless steel rudder, among other changes. We will try and get in touch with the prior owner in coming days and get more of this fascinating story. Stay tuned.

There is an updated ad on Craigslist (11/29/2011) placing this boat at Honokohau Harbour, so that was good enough for our auditors to allow us to pronounce this boat as a Found Dolphin, our 187th. Here is the Craigslist link http://honolulu.craigslist.org/oah/boa/2727574257.html (ad expired)

Here is the updated ad (minor edits) - the price has been reduced.
