    I am out of town till about july 1st, i am trying to drum up interest so i can sell it quickly when i return. Boat can be seen on its trailer in the mean time and will be sailing when i return

    A few things stil need to be done, i will tend to them as i can when i return

  • She needs a mainsail cover.
  • Original steel Trailer is solid and functional and great for around south fla, but could use a paint job and bearing and tires for any long haul, if i sink money into it the price will go up.
  • There is a rocna anchor and anchor roller to be installed on the bow (2 other danforth anchors included)

    This is one of the nicest examples of an M17 you will find. No dissapointments
