If you scroll down here to the post by l and Cw, you will see the boat has a Gunter rig, somewhat like a gaff. Either you are missing the Gunter pole or have not hoisted what you have properly. Sailrite makes mention of the s12 Gunter rig on thei site too. Good luck.
Went sailing for the first time. Tipped her over once and tangled with a few fishermen. I mean their lines. I have a small crack in the deck that lets water fill the inside of the boat.. about sank her a few times, Was thinking of just fiberglassing the spot butt it is right were you sit. Might I have to cut and reinforce That spot. Any thoughts on that repair? It is a slow leak but pulling her up on shore to drain her is a chore due to weight. Also my wife liked sailing and want me to upgrade. Wat is a boat like this worth?
Was thinking that the vintage made it worth more than that. I will sail this boat for a while. Seems to be worth more to me … A few others on the lake thought this boat was really awesome. Had lots of fun. Found out 2 things, 1. I am not very good at it, 2, my daughter had a nack for it. So much fun. Problem is not very comfortable.
