There was a Sandpiper for sale in Ontario a couple of weeks ago for CDN$900. If I had the parking space, I would have snaffled it. The ad went away after a couple of days so I'm sure it found a home.

Currently, there's a couple of Sandpipers on Kijiji - one for around $6k and one for $8.2k. That's a bit more than we paid...

We're going into season 10 with ours. I just antifouled the bottom, she launches Friday.

I just saw that you guys had refered to my tread for the water line. I'll try to find some pictures of my boat on the water tomorrow to give you an idea about how she sits.

My Piper is very light though. I dont have lots of stuff in it (it's pretty much empty since I only use it for daysailing).

Perfect timing that would be great Gepetto143. I am just taping the hull and getting ready to paint shortly. Just waiting for the weather to warm up a bit.

I have bought bearings, axle u-bolts and new tires for trailer. Just spent the last couple hours with a wire brush removing paint. Couple more hours to go and I should be ready to paint.

Getting there slowly. It's amazing how some areas paint comes off really easy and other parts more difficult. I also found after using the drill with wire brush over a period of time the wire brisles start to bend in one direction. Reverse the drill direction and go against the wire grain if you can call it that it takes the paint off much easier. Something so simple but I did not think of it.

Sorry about the size of the 2nd picture.
Sadly, I could not find any closeup picture but we can still see that see is pretty much sitting right on her lines. Like I said, my boat is very light though. My engine is an Honda 8hp 4 stroke). I only have the gas tank in the lazarette (no battery) and a bucket. The cabin is pretty much empty too.

Thanks for the pictures. I am just taping the boat now to prep for painting the hull. I will post some pictures shortly before I start painting.
