Nice little Ventnor for sale

 I was contacted by a lady in the Philadelphia, PA area about her late husband's Ventnor Moth.  She would like to sell the boat.  The boat is Nr 959 and has been owned by this family for several decades.  As can be seen, the first photo shows two dagger boards and two rudders with the traditional wishbone tiller.  The seller indicates that someone might want the excess blades but the remaining ones will be retained for the boat.  The boat appears complete and in reasonable condition.  I have no knowledge of this boat or any stake in the sale.   If anyone is interested, leave your email address in the comments section and I will put you in touch with the seller.  This boat would be eligible for the CMBA's Vintage racing division.  A Ventnor Moth just like this one was my introduction to Moth racing back in the 1950s.  The Ventnor is a wholesome, well behaved design, well  suited for beginning racers.
