Paul Arnold's Windswept, Yankee # 245, Bremerton, Washington Sold August 22, 2010 to Clinton Hodges and moving to Sitka, Alaska (updated May 28, 2014)


August 23, 2010 Paula reported Windswept was sold. We trust the new owner will be in touch soon. Below is her email, and some info regarding custom ss portlights that she still has. Update May 28, 2014 Paula advises these are no longer available, and click here to go to #245's new page.

Hi Ron

I sold her last week! Windswept's new owner is from Anchorage and she'll eventually be moored in Sitka. Thanks a mil for your help with the listing - couldn't have sold her so easily without your help.

I have another request. The new owner is not interested in the set of new portlights for the Dolphin. Would you be so kind as to list these for me? Photos and copy are below.

Thanks a lot,



Custom made port lights for a Yankee Dolphin

Set of six 5" x 12" venting stainless steel port lights, brand new, still in their original packing cases, manufactured by New Found Metals. They were made for #245, but the new owner wants to keep the original port lights intact. These port lights come with teak spacers and stainless screens. All hardware included, as well as lengths of butyl bedding. They are beautiful. New Found Metals website has more information including how to install. http://www.newfoundmetals.com/index.html

Paid $1727. Will sell for $1400 plus shipping.

July 2, 2010. - Paula Gill told us of this boat back on September 24, 2009. It belonged to her partner who has past away. Originally, a friend was going to buy the boat but that deal fell through and now Paula wants to sell it. It has been out of the water and under cover for the past 7-8 years, and previously had been sailed in the Puget Sound area since 1998.

Mast, boom and rigging have been in storage. The cabin has been kept dry with heat and air circulation. Boat is sound; however, the hull and topsides, although cleaned, are due for a new coat of paint, and the teak trim needs attention.
