Beautifully restored boat has been covered in my garage since 2001. Due to ongoing chronic lower back issues, it is time for someone else to take over the helm. Topside and transom are bright, hull is light blue. Old Shore sails are still usable, but no good for racing. Much Newer, used, Norths still have plenty of race in them (boat priced accordingly). Aro spars, wood/lead cb, wood ruder, new rails, fwd grating, 45 braces, and stanchions. Shock cord @ spin turtles and hiking straps has gone limp. Gator, breaking trailer w/bearing buddies and spare tire. Lights and wiring are...

I've had this vote for over 20 years purchased from Eric Pomber. He completely rebuilt this boat. It has been in dry storage and tarped. It did have a little mishap and needs a small repair...and the rails could use a little help. It is in pretty good shape overall...just needs some TLC and a new owner.

SOLD Needs rails and the rest of the wood could use refinishing. All hardware removed in 2006 (its boxed and ready to be reinstalled) and the boat has been stored indoors since then. Wesco low profile trailer, could probably use some work also. The structure of the trailer is sound, it’s just been sitting for a long time. Hull is in excellent condition and has no stress cracks anywhere. Very stiff. Lots of sails and I’m sure as I start digging around I will find some covers and extras also.

This boat has nothing but potential , a mast, newer top cover, rudder, and trailor. Use hull 1983 as your blank canvas for creating a completely custom rigging system and bottom color. Hull #1983 was at Dennison Univsersity, then in Detroit untouched to wither away in a parking lot. I acquired it and planned to race it, but never finished the work and ended up sailing #2905. Hull has been redone and primed - needs bottom paint. Rails need to be glued together and finished. Black mast is newer and fully rigged - needs boom (have wooden boom if interested)....
