Have cruised with the former owner of this boat as a sailboat, no keel (board totally up) motoring around Georgian Bay
All good
Thanks for the answers.

Durant F,
Very nice. And I like your engine on the transom. Easier to work on, better maneuverability, less fumes and more room in the boat aft .. lots.

Thats a cool project, makes me rethink the times when people offered me these types of boats for free or cheap.

I do the same thing with motorcycles, it seems after a couple years I have enough mix and match pieces and parts to put one together. Its very therapeutics for me.

Charlie, there are so many deals on old sailboats on trailers.
They are fine, very efficient hulls.
I paid less than half of what the trailer alone would cost new with the boat on it and have the mast, boom and sail to sell. Bonus was the trailer had new tires and even a new spare.
