    About this Sailboat:

    The Sea Sprite 23 is a superb day sailor and weekender. I have had the boat since 2009 and have enjoyed it but would like to move up in size. It’s a great starter boat for a young family. I bought the boat as a project and did the following work over the last 3 years and still did some sailing.

    • New SS oversize chainplates were fabricated and installed,
    • The deck aft of the cockpit was re-cored.
    • The hatches aft of the cockpit were re-cored, new
    • The standing rigging was replaced
    • New main halyard, jib halyard and sheave, furling line, topping lift.
    • All deck hardware was removed and either replaced with new or re-bedded with all new ss bolts.
    • The entire topsides were reconditioned.
    • All through hulls were replaced.
    • All through hull hoses replaced and hose clamps replaced.
    • New Mainsail 2010
    • New track, sliding block and cleat installed on boom for reefing
    • New hook at gooseneck installed for reefing
    • New Lewmar winches installed
    • New 4:1 boomvang installed
    • Cockpit sole re-cored around rudder post
    • Bottom stripped, completely re-faired. Ballast casting re-faired and bottom barrier coated. Two coats Micron CSC applied.
    • Bottop stripped and re-shot and repainted.
    • New topping lift block installed.
    • New Solar vent and Dorade vent installed.
    • New Teak trim block fitted around rudder post.

    • Danforth anchor and tackle
    • Dock lines, fenders
    • Spare fuel line for the Honda gas tank
