#1173 Woodie

#1173 is a true barn find.  At some point around the turn of the century, she was given a new transom, gunwhales and some hull patching.  The work must have been done by a professional because it’s very good.  Then she was purchased by a guy who put her in the barn loft for 15 or twenty years.  He gave the boat to my 89 year old neighbor who stored her in his shop for two years before I acquired #1173 from him.  After the restoration, no hardware was re-installed although a lot of the hardware is in a box in the boat.  There are four sails with the boat although I don’t know which ones they are.  At least two of them came from Van Zandt Sails in Noank, CT.  Rudder, centerboard, tiller, whisker pole(?), wooden boom and aluminum mast all seem to be in good shape.  There are a full set of drawings with the boat as well as pictures of past work done on her.  Also included is a galvanized trailer in decent shape.  I would just like a small sailing dinghy I can single hand to take out the grandkids, so I don’t want to install any hardware in this boat and ruin her for any buyer who might want to race her.
