This boat is a wonderful stable and reliable sailor, great for the weekends, or as a quasi-live aboard for dock bums (like me)
There is a fair amount of spiderweb deck surface gelcoat cracking, but thanks to copious amounts of elbow grease and wax, they are at best cosmetic. (thank you 110 degree summer days in Texas)
The engine room is clean and dry, as is the bilge.
This boat is rigged for single handed sailing with 7, count'em 7 winches.
Choke the Atomic-4 for a minute, and the "Iron Mainsail" will run all day for you.
She had a bottom job in 1999, with 4 coats of ablative. There is no green growth, and the bottom is still in fine shape, thanks to my strong backed son and a custom made brush (will be glad to give the design of this to anyone who asks) and the lack of nasties in Texoma.
Alas, I don't have a trailer.
Five new PFD's (orange mae wests)
a very large Knaack steel dock box will go with it, holds all jibs, bosuns ladder, PFD's and othe misc gear.
She will make 7-9 knots in a 20 knot wind with the 165 up, heeled at 35/40 degrees and 9-10 with the spinnaker without so much as a groan, could do more if I had bigger ba**s, and wasn't a woosie
I really hate to sell her, she has been a great friend.
