1985 cruiser/racer on a trailer. The boats what's known as a lifting keel design. That means the keel is flush to the hull for trailering and launching. When you're in a little deeper water you let the keel down, either partially or fully.
The boat's got the following:
New Schurr Sails pentex 155 ( I added for 2013)
New Somerset full battened main (unused when I bought the boat)
Used UK #2 tape drive in good condition
Used North 105 cross cut in good condition
Used UK tape drive main in well, well worn condition
Unused Johnson Dacron 155 (an ideal delivery or cruising sail)
Used Gilbride radial jib in good condition with pole, guys, sheets, turning blocks, etc.
Mast lifting gin pole
New head stay foil
Previous owner added self-tailing cockpit winches
New axle and tires on trailer
All the cushions for down below
Iterlux Aqua bottom paint 9/2013
And the list goes on...
This may be an ideal set up for your area. If you want it to race, at PHRF 213 it is deadly to Catalina's and Capri's. There's a couple of S-2 6.9's that seem to dominate their class in the Dauphin Island Race. In fact they were 1st in F Class and G class this year. Or it would make a splendid "trailer sailor".
This boat is ideal to go racing on a budget. At PHRF 213 it is deadly to Catalinas and Capris. There's a couple of S-2 6.9s that seem to dominate their class in the Dauphin Island Race. In fact they were 1st in F Class and G class this year. And you can stick with the bigger guys too. Up to about 2'-3' seas and 15 kts. of wind, that is. Hey, you're only 22', right, and things are starting to get a little nasty.
