I bought this in 2009 as a project. I've sailed her a bit, now it's time for something new.

I have redone the swing keel. Pulled it out treated the steel and redid the fiberglass. The keel performs beautifully.

I also made a new rudder and tiller.

I have repaired all the hardware and installed new standing rigging and running rigging.

The hull has been painted inside and out.

Bulkheads have been replaced. New water tank for sink.

Has a porta-potty.

She has been sitting the last 2 seasons so she could use a thorough cleaning.

Trailer works however it's ugly. I never could make up my mind to replace it or keep it.

Comes with everything you will need to sail. Lifejackets, winch handles, etc.

She has a full compliment of sails, main, jib, genoa and spinnaker.

She points well and sails very smooth, floats in less than a foot of water.

Set up to single hand.

Comes with a Chrysler outboard long shaft 9.9. Tuned up and runs fine.

I also have a mast raising system I built, it lets you raise the mast in no time by yourself, pretty handy and takes a lot of the work out of the job.

I have some of the interior cushions they are old and need to be redone, I'll throw in the fabric I have to recover them (just never got around to the insides more fun to just sail).

I have all of the outside cushions. I never put them back on because they were old and left stains in the fiberglass.
