1968 Parker International 505
Beautifully restored classic International 505 racing sailboat with spinnaker launcher tube, entirely re-built earlier this year with mahogany deck, transom, thwarts and bulkheads using solid mahogany and marine-grade mahogany plywood.
Hull and tanks are fiberglass and in excellent condition.
Re-painted hull and cockpit.
New running rigging (mostly Harken blocks and cleats) and turnbuckles with high-strength chainplates.
Laminate mahogany centerboard and custom kick-up laminate mahogany rudder (with hard-annodized aluminum casing and tiller).
Custom centerboard cap and thwarts.
Full transom (not typical 505 bikini-style).
All three flotation areas are completely sealed (fore and side tanks) and forward deck plates provide removable, built-in dry storage for personal items.
Spinnaker-ready Proctor-D mast with new halyards for main and jib.
Includes Cunningham and boom vang (not installed).
Hull structure reinforced with carbon-fiber tubing for better stiffness and strength.
Includes one set of sails (main and jib) in decent shape.
Boat comes with near-new and barely used Minn-Kota 30 trolling motor and light-weight 32amp battery for launching at busy boat ramps.
This boat is beautiful, draws interest and is rewarding, fast and fun to sail.
Easy to trailer and set-up.
Running rigging is still simple and there is a lot of room to customize.
Mostly sailed in fresh water, especially since re-build.
Trailer is customized with removable tongue (to fit in the garage) and includes all new tires (3), new winch and permanent tags (AZ).
