Crosby selling Mayan
Well thats very strange, David Crosby is selling the boat "Mayan" that he wrote "Wooden Ships" on and has owned for over 40 years. Ouch! The Mayan is a 59-ft. classic Alden designed schooner and the reported asking price is one million dollars.
The Mayan went through a complete $600,000 refit in 2005 and is berthed in Santa Barbabra. It was on the cover of the 1977 Crosby, Stills & Nash album "CSN".
David is 67 but I wonder if its a financial decision more than an age related one. David should be underwritten by the country for all the music he has given us, still it must be a terrible disappointment for him to let her go. If a boat is a hole in the water that eats money this would surely be a big gobbler for one man to keep funding, but what a beauty!
