    Great sturdy boat that sails superb in 10-20 knots & can be reefed. No saltwater use I am aware of. The spinnaker sets easy and has new halyard, topping lift, shock cord, & new aluminum spinnaker pole.

    I can deliver pretty far (400 miles or so) for gas, and can provide rigging or sailing demo.

    David,
    Your site was great. The only way to sell a boat as far as I'm concerned. I had 3 fairly real offers, 2 scams, and a good final sale, at my price, and they picked it up. Move this boat to the sailboat gallery. Sold in 5 days.
    Thanks again,
    Mike
    Houston, Texas
