I was told when buying this boat a few months ago that
the rigging was quite new, and it appears to be in
great shape. When I raised the mast to test
everything, the rig appeared to be taut and quite well
Brand new mainsheet setup from Garhauer
Two new stand-up blocks on t-track for jib sheets, also from Garhauer
All new (never used!) 1/4" sheets and halyards
Outboard is an old (70s?) 7.5 horse Ted Williams (Sears) outboard with new head gasket and plastic fuel tank.

This boat is very sound, in construction and
condition. The fiberglass is quite thick, and those
who I've spoken to about this design all agree that it
is a very tough boat. The cockpit is quite large for
a boat this size, should be good to go out with family
and friends. Cuddy cabin could probably sleep two
full-grown adults, with proper padding on v-berth.
It breaks my heart to have to sell it before even
having a chance to get her wet, especially after all
the hours of getting her prettied up and equipped.
But my truck seems to think that a new engine is a
higher priority, so those are the breaks.
Sold today, thanks so much!
