Cold Feet is a 1986 Pacific Seacraft Dana 24 designed by Bill Crealock. An impressive blue water cruising boat built to take on the world.
Cold Feet's life began in 1986 in Pacific Seacraft's Santa Anna, California factory. She was commissioned hull # 32 and delivered to her original owner on the Chesapeake Bay in late spring / early summer 1986.
In 1987 her original owner sold her to Alfred Gilbert of Philadelphia, PA. Alfred and his wife called Rock Hall, MD home port and cruised the Chesapeake. In the summer of 1993 they sailed north to Christmas Cove, Maine for the Pacific Seacraft Rendezvous.
In September 1997 the Gilberts sold her to owners who relocated the boat to fresh water in Tennessee. According to documents from John Pollard found on board, the Tennessee owners sparsely used her for daysailing.
In October 1999 John Pollard purchased her and trucked her back to the Chesapeake. She was relaunched in May 2000. The Pollards cruised the Chesapeake for several years aboard her, making significant upgrades throughout their tenure. At some point in time after 2002 the Pollards sold her to Bob Ruble.
Bob Ruble trucked her to Montana. From what we have pieced together Bob continued to upgrade her (most notably was an ingenious chart plotter mount) and cruise the Puget Sound. We think he trucked the boat from Montana to Anacortes, Washington each year for the cruising season.
In the fall of 2009 Bob sold the boat to Ward Wilcox of Anacortes. Tragically Ward passed away in the spring of 2010. His wife Clay decided to sell her.
On the 16th of June, 2010, she officially became ours and was re-christened Cold Feet on 3 July.
