Just bought a boat
« on: August 15, 2017, 03:11:54 PM »
Just got a project 23! 1979, needs a lot of work but I got a good deal on her and brought her home.

Stay tuned for more adventures, restoration, and questions! May even make a blog/vlog on it, seems to be the popular thing to do nowadays

Congrats on the new yacht! Did you get the good deal in Dunedin? it looked like a steal. I have an 81-23 and a 78-16 on the west coast of Florida. Post some pictures of your boat and your improvements.
Happy sailing!

yes I got the one from Dunedin, took awhile to get it back to the east coast do to some trailer issues but she is home! The trailer was old and not for that boat, but all parties knew that going into it and I took the risk, it was too good of a deal to pass up. I ended up pulling it away for $500.00

It does have a crack on the deck and some damage to the rub rail on the starboard beamiest spot, probably from piling damage, the interior needs complete overhaul, needs all new blocks, needs bottom job, needs an engine/trailer, oh and a tiller, sails are decent enough for use!


I have my work cut out for me but it will sail again!
