    About this Sailboat:

    This is my first “REAL” sailboat, so you’ll have to bear with me, I waill naswer as many questions as I can about her.
    I got her from a older gent who had gotten too sick to sail.
    As soon as I saw her lines I sold my 16′ and got her.
    I’ve done a TON of work to her. made a “platform” in the front of the cabin to sleep on or?? Made a propane stove set up, fixed the sink.
    I amde a set of covers over them so you can place itmes on them
    Made a set of cabin cushions, rewired her with a radio, interior lights, pumps, etc.
    Presently I have 3 deep cycle batteries hooked up (1 to operate the cabin and 2 for the 40 watt electric motor (left over form my 16′).
    Solar panels charge these batteries well.
    I sanded and painted the hull and deck, stragihten out the rigging, (with lots of advice form the other sailors at the marina).
    She sails well easy to motor withe the electric of gas motor.
    There is a 25′ O Day that is in dire need of rescuing and repairing that’s SCREAMING my name!

    NEw main, Jib, as well as orginal? main and Jib.
