Better Days…

Ok, this stuff kills me…  here is a little blast from the past.  It’s a shot of the mighty fine lookin’ Soverel 50 Locura back in ‘the day.’

She was a fast boat, a successful boat, and not bad too look at either.  I got to sail on her a number of times and had fond memories…  even after design philosophies moved on, and rating systems changed, she was a powerful machine and loved to strut her stuff.

I dug the shot above out of my personal files because I happened upon a Soverel 50 for sale in San Diego.  Yep.  One and the same.  I was saddened to find this:  here she is now…

Ouch.  Ignobly waiting a new owner, which might be tough to come by.  They are virtually giving her away (asking $19K), so maybe she’ll find some love… take care of your boats, folks, and they will take care of you!

    I’m looking at buying a Soverel 50 a friend is selling that was built for Mark Soverel. Mark became ill before he was able to complete the vessel and the completed deck and hull (that’s it) was purchased by a man in Chicago and finished in Holland, Michigan. She’s an incredible boat, one of my favorites.
