This has been an actively raced boat kept in excellent condition and ready to go. Needs nothing. Superior sail inventory ! Freshwater only boat for 10 years (previous owner) until I bought and brought it to the coast recently. The previous owner told me she was dry sailed and stored indoors. The bottom, rudder, and keel had alternating layers of Interlux 2000c wet sanded and faired down to 220 grit. To prepare it for a salt water environment since I would use it more if moored in a wet slip, I took it to Harris boat yard in Ocean Springs and they hand sanded (to remove an ill applied coat of Black Widow paint) , and applied several more layers of sealer (epoxy resin) and then painted 2-3 coats of an industrial grade racing ablative bottom paint. Super smooth bottom for an ablative paint: never had blisters. No soft spots . No water intrusion. Solid boat. Draft: 1 foot dagger board up ; 5 feet dagger board down.

Why am I selling? I am on the waiting list for a wet slip in the two marinas in Fairhope: Fairhope Port Marina (public) and Fly Creek Marina (privately owned). Tired of waiting . If a slip opens up , boat will be taken off the market.

Over 19k recently invested in boat and sails inventory, bottom prep and painting, trailer refurbishing, new motor, and misc. hardware. A lot of boat and upgrades for
$ 13,500.
