Unfortunately, it is time for me to sell Dragon Wing. My kids are getting older and more active, even during the summer, and we just arent able to use her like she deserves. Dragon Wing is a 1981 Allmand 31 tri-cabin. She is currently on the hard in Ocean City, NJ. Weve owned her for 5 years, and she has given us some great memories. Ive sailed her back and forth between the Chesapeake Bay and the NJ coast a few times, and we spent all of last season sailing off the NJ coast from our marina in Ocean City. She has been a solid boat, safely getting me through some rough weather on several occasions. Our wordpress site has more information about DragonWingSailboat.
We had to rebuild the back half of the Universal 5416 engine shortly after we purchased her, and we put in a new transmission, too. She has had other improvements, including:
* Electrical system updates (including removal of the trailer plug and adding a Xantrex battery charger);
* a new anchor;
* new head hoses;
* a rebuilt stuffing box;
* new gaskets and screens on the opening ports;
* 3-blade Campbell Sailor prop;
* rebedding of the non-opening ports;
* replacement of most of the running rigging; and
* new canvas was made when we bought her, and the Bimini, dodger, and sail cover are all still in good shape.
She comes equipped with removable dinghy davits and a rail-mount gas stove, although neither of them appear in the pictures below. The dinghy in the pictures is not included (the bottom has come unglued). She comes with (older but still functional) main and genoa sails, and a light-air foresail as well.
The fresh water system wasnt working when we purchased her, and although we have the parts to fix it, it hasnt been repaired (we have always easily made due with bottles of water). As with many older boats, we are chasing some leaks, but the hull still seems to be in good shape. I dont currently have interior photos; I will try to take some next time I get down there. We do have all of the interior and cockpit cushions, and our dinette turns into a double berth.
