Lightning, 1968

  • Hull Number 10919 with Trailer and Cover

    Fiberglass Lightning #10919 , a Classic built in 1968 by the Jack A. Helms Co.

  • One of the first with self rescue tanks. Upgraded with an oval Aluminum Mast, but still with the vintage wooden boom and tiller/rudder.
  • All standing and running rigging in great shape.
  • Very nice Karavan trailer for ease of ramp launching.
  • Motor mount so you can cruise in class (just add long-shaft motor, the one in some photos is NOT included).
  • Two sets of sails and two spinnakers.
  • Wood fine but could use varnish.
  • We enjoyed this boat sailing a fresh water lake and hope you will too.
  • A great boat for cruising.
  • Dry sailed, as we kept the boat on a lift when not in use.
  • An almost-new custom Sailor's Tailor cover included.
  • Boat is in the Elk Rapids, MI area. Asking $2700 / OBO.
  • Just hoping to find this boat a good home with appreciative owner, we have enjoyed, and you will too.

    See photos and feel free to ask for more photos or any questions about condition etc. Make an offer, too many boats, this one needs a new home.

    Boat is currently in Elk Rapids, Michigan. Can deliver to Chicago, Illinois area or points in between.
