This vessel has been very well-maintained with no expense spared. She awaits her new owner to lose the lines and take her back to where she belongs, the ocean. Will you be he one who takes her there?
The current owner has owned her since 2002, sailed her down to Ensenada for 9 months, kept her in San Diego for 2 years, then San Francisco Bay for 5 years, with a trip to Waikiki and back in 2010, San Francisco Bay for another 3 years, back to Waikiki for another year and a half, back to Los Angeles where she remains today.
The current owner has turned 73, and while convinced that Glory is more than capable of making more trips to anywhere, including Hawaii or the Panama Canal (where her previous owner took her twice), is concerned that time is no longer on his side, To demonstrate his confidence in Glory he promises to crew on a non-stop journey of up to 2,500 miles if desired by the purchaser.
During the 2010 return trip from Hawaii, the rigging failed in fare weather, reason unknown, losing the main mast. During an emergency, open ocean, stationary refueling procedure by a container ship. The vessel received fiberglass damage to the bow area while stationary and tethered to the ship. This damage did not result in any water intrusion into the vessel and was professionally repaired back in port. Also at that time a used mast and boom was purchased along with new standing rigging installed.
