AMF Alcort Minifish (mid-1970s)
  • price: $750 OBO - including homemade (registered) trailer
  • location: Inverness, FL 34450
  • hull type = daggerboard dinghy,
  • rigging = lateen,
  • LOA = 11.75 ft,
  • beam = 3.83 ft,
  • draft = 0.25- 2.5 ft(min-max),
  • displacement = 75 lbs,
  • sail area = 66.8 sq ft,
  • crew capacity 300 lbs
    this is a very easy to sail, small (one person) boat that is great on lakes or close in but is not suitable for strong winds (probably max ~ 25 mph)
    what's good: new sail; aluminum mast and spars in great condition; all lines, daggerboard and rudder/tiller (with ext) in good shape; lightweight and easy to tow, requires very little wind to sail so suitable for mid-size FL lakes
    what needs work: some small defects in fiberglass coating that do not affect sailing but could easily be fixed to make it look better; water will slowly seep into hull if left in water for long periods but there is a drain plug that can be used if this is a problem
  • trailer is homemade, has FL registration, needs work and not suitable for long distances or high speed
