For Sale: Santa Barbara #1872

When I came back to the Argonauts I took possession of this Santa Barbara from Bob DeBow. She has Hitec winch and new Sirius Sails. I can provide a radio if desired. The really best part about this boat is that it was built by Bob DeBow himself.  I really don’t want to part with her – but she’s not being sailed and I need some funds.

Please contact Ben Reeve – rcsailfun@gmail.com. Asking $700.
