RE: 17' CLC Northeaster Dory and Trailer for sale in Central Texas

   Is the boat still for sale? Where is she located and what are you asking

RE: 17' CLC Northeaster Dory and Trailer for sale in Central Texas

I think there is another person asking and I will try to figure out how to reply eo him (also-- Keith?) 

 Yes it is still for sale, asking $3,500, I know people have transported boats like this, although I'm not familiar with how to do it...Here's some pictures although I have a lot more if you like to see them.


Please advise if this link worked.  
Also, here is my email ID if you would like to communicate directly.

If you ever have an inkling that you will be in New England in the future, please contact me. I'm afraid Texas is just too far away for me to buy a boat.    It looks like a honey. Good luck.
