Make offer for pick up only.. I have several items from a clean out of a life time sailors storage. This is a solid wood mast boom rig. Sail and all riging in good shape. Wood could use a quick re- varnish. No rot. I'm in panama city Florida. I don't think its shipable. I can provide better...
Good evening gentlemen.

Thanks Beeler2. I'm glad its over. Lol. Now I can teach the grandkids how to sail. That was the goal.. Thats the original 45 year old sail. Its on its last leg but I tried to preserve it. The tac and 3 more gromets were torn out and 2 holes repaired. I wish the fish was more visible.
