Sparkle Plenty
is a "Good Old Boat" -- one that has served her previous owners well, and with proper rehab and maintenance, will provide her current owner and crew with safe and exhilarating passage-making for years to come. Click images for larger view.

Wide decks, hefty standing rigging and a 11' 6" beam provide a stable platform.

A 5' shoal draft keeps water under the keel in the shallower parts of Chesapeake Bay.

Former owner Don Comer takes the helm for the final time as he assists in the passage from Baltimore to Sparkle Plenty's new home in Deale, MD. Don and his wife "Socks" sailed SP several times to Florida and the Bahamas. Sparkle Plenty hauled out for pre-purchase survey in Baltimore, MD.
