  • Hull in good condition. gelcoat shows crazing. Not a new boat but solid.
  • Mast and boom in good used condition.
  • Sails are old, used and show some wear and staining but are in good, usable overall condition.
  • Other standing rigging intact with bronze, open-barrel turnbuckles
  • Bronze gudgeons and pintels, heavier duty than you would expect on a boat this size. Some rigging showing age, some atypical.
  • Bow and stern lights present and functional but needs battery
  • Tiller is old and could use an upgrade, but I like it
  • Bottom previously had antifouling paint but has been sanded down to gelcoat
  • Trailer had light surface rust but has been primed with Rustoleum for protection and painted blue two years ago

    All the paper work for the trailer and boat are in place and ready for you to go sailing.

    I bought the motor new and did not register it, but have all the new paper work that came with the motor.

    I have sold the Sailboat!
    Thanks so much for your excellent website
    You’re the best!!!
