The owner bought this boat in 2013

General condition and any additional information


She has been well taken care of through the years. I have all the documents, manuals, equipment receipts, etc. from the original owner right up till my ownership. When I purchased her I had her surveyed and she passed with flying colors and thus insurable. The engine never ran more than 15 hours per summer and engine oil was changed each spring before the new season.

The swing keel is ideal for lake sailing. It gives you lots of flexibility to navigate in shallow water, shore excursions (especially when your pet dog has to go), beach picnics. Also ideal for trailering (trailer is not included with sail).

Due to an unrelated back injury I am unable to sail. She has not been sailed since late 2016. However, I go out to the marina often and keep her clean and maintained. The pictures shown are from mid-August 2018.
