    Centerboard help

    My wife and I took ours out for the first time on Sunday. No leaks, engine purrs and she sails nice in light air. I guess we will go ahead and replace all the sheets and lines and keep "Cheap Thrills" for a while.

    Centerboard help

    One year later..... I too just purchased an American 16, also a 1973. What condition was yours in and was it all there? Mine needs a new tackle mount for the top of the centerboard. Otherwise not in terrible condition for a 40 year old vessel. Cheers, Jim

    Can anyone tell me what this is

    Are we supposing its related to boating? It is obviously has the clamp incorporated. But where it goes is a mystery for sure. Is the peglike object removable?

    Just bought my first boat

    Any thoughts on this boat. Slow, fast, easily capsized?

    Just bought my first boat

    Picked up a 1973 American 16 yesterday. It's all there and has a good trailer. Wood on top of the centerboard trunk is bad. Otherwise seems fit. Looking forward to getting her in the lake. I have sailed but not much.
