Great Midwest Yacht Co.  #3745 (1982) Color: “Finefrock Yellow”
Race ready competitive minimum weight boat  It has done very well when I’ve sailed well.

Shroud Micro Adjusters
GPS covers, top and bottom
Carbon fiber Spinnaker Pole
Modern GMW rudder (with aluminum tiller)
Marine hand held Radio (and water proof bag)
All required safety equipment — plus reefing setup* — you can remove this, but you will have to check the boat weight — it’s close!
Boat has guy hooks, and twing hardware led back to cleats on 45s.
Vang, Cunningham, and Barber Hauler (led to cleats on 45s) (Barber hauler is very useful on close reaches and in heavy air when in can  be used to de-power the jib.
Spinnaker Halyard is lead back to cleat on Starboard side of CB trunk.  Shock cord powered spinnaker halyard gobbler along keel.
Jib Halyard is lead to port side of CB trunk. (Old Howdy/Bruce King setup)

Tactical Compass — (the one with the 5 numbers in each quadrant) I wished I had bought this years before I did.
3 sets of North Sails (Procter cut  Main/Jib)
The newest has hardly been used — probably less then 1/3 a season over the years since it was built (2014).  The boat has be VERY little sailed for the last 10 years.  Spinnaker is still “crispy.”  At least one main was built by North for slab reefing. *
Includes miscellaneous parts and hardware.
Trailer has bow to stern keel keel board for supporting for boat along the entire keel.
Garage stored since I purchased the boat from the original owner (Bill Guess) in 1989 (he sailed in on Lake Murray, SC)
