Selling my Snipe will make it the third sailboat I have sold in Colorado. The first was "BlueSky", a light blue-hulled Daysailor. The Daysailor was purchased in Santa Cruz but originated from Massachusets and now comfortably resides in San Luis Obispo with my worthy brother-in-law, Todd. Wow, counting Boulder, CO, that boat and trailer saw over 5,600 miles of pure American asphalt (math courtesy of Google Maps). It didn't take long to fill the Daysailor's shoes. I was soon in Long Beach, CA hitching up a Catalina Capri 22 and trailer to the tail of a suburban and driving it back to Boulder. Not two years later I was hauling "Rollercoaster", the Capri 22, up I-70 towards Dillion lake and the new owner. The Snipe was and still is a great boat. After finding out my Grandad owned one when he was a young lad made sailing the boat twice as cool. My piano tuner has had his eye on the Snipe for the last two or three visits. It was music to his ears last week when I offered to sell it to him. I will miss it as I have missed the Daysailor and the Capri but it is tough to see these boats not being used all summer. The sailng season in Colorado begins and ends much like California's, May 1st thru November 1st and I don't trailer the boats out west. We have enough boats out there as it is ;)
