This is a Trinka 12' Racing Dinghy complete with galvanized trailer. These boats are the Cadillacs of sailing dinghys
The boat is in excellent condition. It has a few dock marks (not even scratches) and does not look like it has ever been beached.
It was kept in a garage at Big Bear Lake and was probably not sailed more than a few times.
The sail is like new as are the rudder and centerboard.
I have not sailed this boat. I bought it to sail this season but the tax man changed my mind.
All the rigging is there. I set it up the first time, without instructions, and it took me about 20 minutes.
It has a 3:1 boom vang, a kick-up rudder and tiller extension. The main sheet is 3 or 4:1 and has a swivel cam lock for ease of sailing.
Hull is self bailing and unsinkable.
