Lightning, 1963, Louisville, Kentucky, $750, SOLD 9/19/11
1963 Lightning Sailboat #10832 For Sale
Bought this as a boat I was going to keep and race in the HUGE Lightning Sailboat Fleet around the Ohio River Valley.
Sadly I have too many boats and this one has to go.
It is rock solid and been stored covered and dry.
All original Paperwork included with the boat, back to the original invoice!! pretty cool.
Mahogany Cockpit and Coamings.
Painted Steel Centerboard, no rust
Aluminum Mast, wooden boom
Aluminum Spinnaker Pole
Hiking straps included.
Steel Trailer included, needs some TLC, but towed from Indianapolis to Louisville with no problems
Rock solid fiberglass construction with integral foam coring for floatation.
Main, Jib and Spinakker included. Old but in good shape.
Everything is there to go sailing, or this would make a great cadidate for an easy winter restoration/update to modern fittings.
I wound up donating that boat for a fundraiser for Leukemia and Lymphoma society.
