Comments:
LICKETY SPLIT is a well-equipped and well-maintained example of the Endeavor 30. She has the benefit of the Copper Clad bottom so that there will never be the need to haul out to paint. The owner is highly motivated to sell this vessel quickly as can be seen by the price.


A BRIEF NARRATIVE, by the OWNER:
In the year 1990 I entered into an agreement with Endeavour Yachts of St. Petersburg to construct and commission the LICKETY SPLIT. Pat Reichman, then the General Manager of Endeavour Yachts, did an excellent job and made this generally a very pleasant experience. Pat remains active in the industry and is now responsible for the construction and commissioning of the Manta 42. The LICKTEY SPLIT was sailed from St. Petersburg to her home port, The Bohemia Bay Yacht Harbor at the northernmost end of the Chesapeake Bay, Maryland. The Bohemia River is fresh water. June of 1999 she was sailed south to her current home port, The Ocean Reef Club, North Key Largo, Florida. I am a two boat owner and have decided, sadly, that my Stiletto 27 day sailor will better fit my business and personal time constraints. The LICKETY SPLIT has been moved to the 2Hulls Fort Lauderdale docks for sale.

HULLS:
The LICKETY SPLIT has 30 feet of hull length with a beam of 14 feet and 6 inches. While the overall construction and finish are what you would expect of an Endeavour Yacht, the LICKETY SPLIT'S hulls are unique in three regards. Below the waterline the hulls have been protected with a vinylester moisture barrier coating. Following the vinylester, the hulls were coated with Copper Clad, a permanent barrier to marine growth. The hulls have never been painted in my 10 years of ownership and looks as good today as when the copper clad was originally applied. I should point out that even with a copper bottom the hulls will require periodic cleaning of marine grass and slime. I accomplish this cleaning by anchoring the boat in shallow waters, 2 feet 10 inches of draft, and going over the hulls with l a long handled scrub brush. And third, the LICKETY SPLIT'S hulls have been extended aft to provide a perfectly clean exit with no "stern vortexes". Improvement in yacht performance had been fantastic, elimination of the stern vortexes (immersed hull) have produced a generous 1 knot improvement in boat speed. The LICKETY SPLIT'S wake is negligible and she will out point and out foot anything in her class. In addition, the hull extensions provide great convenience for accessing the water, and for line handling.

RIG:
Mainsail is by UK with an area of 430 square feet with full battens and a large roach. Mainsheet and Spinlock Index vang are controlled from the cockpit via a two-speed Barient winch. I have found it much simpler to raise, furl, and reef the mainsail from the mast and have a "dedicated" winch with halyard clutches for that purpose. Harken's batcars make raising, lowering or reefing the mainsail effortless.

The foresail is by Berig with 105 square feet of area. This foresail is controlled by Berig's patented spar and is self-tacking and self-vanging, and is controlled by a single sheet led to the cockpit winch.

The LICKETY SPLIT is set up so that I can easily single-hand her or effortlessly sail the boat with my wife. My wife and I transited the boat from the northern Chesapeake to the Florida Keys. The combinations of full or reefed mainsail, with or without foresail provide a surprising amount of variety and balance, the helm is very light and responsive. She tacks (simply turn the wheel, no sheet handling necessary) thru 80 degrees and will wear about (360 degrees) if you prefer to do that gibe. The LICKETY SPLIT benefits from regular use, good maintenance, and gear upgrading as is necessary.

AUXILIARY POWER:
1990, 27 horsepower, 3 cylinder, single overhead cam, Yanmar diesel (outboard!). No gasoline fumes, either inside or outside the boat, guarantees the safest possible auxiliary power. An outboard lets you get the prop out of the water, eliminating drag and providing great sailing. The tremendous torque of a diesel engine delivers cruising speeds (8 knots plus) not obtainable with gas. The phenomenal fuel efficiency of a diesel (estimate one-half gallon per hour) provides 100 continuous hours on a 50 gallon tank. Yanmar representative Jim Galvin (of Galvcorp in Miami) estimates that a major overhaul will be necessary at 10,000 (earliest) or 15,000 hours (latest). I have service manuals and parts manuals and a spare parts kit. In reality, the engine is so reliable and trouble-free that the only thing you really need to worry about is the quality of the fuel. My primary fuel system is Racor's turbine diesel filter system. This system is self-priming from the main tank and has a vacuum gage for filter replacement. In 10 years  I have never had to change the secondary fuel filter located on the diesel engine. The entire system has been very reliable, efficient and trouble-free. Maintenance is negligible and is easy to perform when necessary. The Yanmar steers with the rudders, handling around the docks is a breeze.

ELECTRICAL SYSTEM:
The LICKETY SPLIT has an extensive 12 volt electrical system consistent with what you would expect on a modern yacht. The heart of the system is two (switched) gel cell batteries. Everything has always worked the way it is supposed to.

120 Volt shore power is provided through a 50 foot 30 amp cord. Battery charging is automatic when on shore power or through a large alternator on the Yanmar. Again, everything is factory fresh, convenient, and works the way it is supposed to.

ACCOMMODATIONS AND LAYOUT:
The private state rooms with full double beds and dressers provides sleeping for 4. The saloon settee seats 6 with a table and makes up into a king size bed (which we find to be very comfortable; almost luxurious). There are 5 deck hatches and 8 ports (two fixed). The feeling of the boat is very light and airy. She is also very fresh smelling as there is no opportunity for salt water, diesel fuel, or oil to enter the bilges.

The galley is approximately 11 feet long with two opening ports in front of the propane stove (with safety LPG shutoff) and double stainless steel sink. Next to the sink is a huge icebox. A combination of block and cube ice works so well for us that we were never inclined to have refrigeration. However, there is room for a refrigeration unit if someone wished to retrofit one.

A pressure hot and cold water system provides water for the galley sink, bathroom sink, interior shower room, and hand held swim platform shower. At the dock, a regulated shore water hookup provides unlimited water. Off dock the system operates with a 75 gallon tank. The "isolated" (instant on) propane water heater works at the dock, on anchor, sailing, or while motoring. Simply turn on a faucet! The 20 gallon propane tank lasts forever! The exterior propane locker hatch holds two 20 gallon tanks. One tank lasts so long that I have gotten lazy and only keep one on board.

The head and shower (two separate rooms) occupies space slightly smaller than the galley. While I normally prefer the simplicity of manual components, I did splurge on an electric push button head. By turning the "Y" valve you can select between overboard, a 35 gallon holding tank, and dockside pump out. I did have to replace the macerator pump in Morehead City, on our way south. In 10 years this is the only repair which has been necessary to a reliable and convenient waste system.

GROUND TACKLE:
A bow mounted plow anchor with chain and 3 strand nylon rode does ninety-percent of the work. For safety and convenience I keep a Fortress (Dan forth type) anchor with its own chain and rode in a separate deck locker. For docking two additional deck lockers hold a combination of 35 foot and 50 foot braided and 3 strand dock lines and two big "B" fenders. The deck lockers are huge.

ELECTRONICS:
In a fiberglass pod mounted immediately forward of the Edson wheel lighted binnacle compass, are the following waterproof instruments and controls:
- Auto helm, auto pilot which will operate from its own electronic compass, Loran, GPS, or Wind,
- Tridata depth, speed and trip log,
- Wind speed and direction gage,
- Loran,
- Yanmar engine controls,
Mounted on the cockpit coaming is a VIGIL VHF radio with its antenna and the Loran antenna mast head mounted. Also, a marine stereo system (in cabin) with speakers in the cockpit and cabin.

Thank you for taking the time to read my "brief" narrative of the LICKETY SPLIT. Almost everything in life is a compromise, boats particularly so. Please accept my best wishes as you search for a boat whose comprises serve you best. Thank you again for your interest in LICKETY SPLIT, I am proud to offer her for sale.
