READY TO SAIL.
Do not contact me unless you are serious and have previous sailing experience (Preferably with cats). This boat is fast, very fast…in fact, on occasion, a white knuckle ride.
Beach Wheels (NO Road Trailer, but I can deliver locally or further afield, at cost)
Spinnaker (Brand new, never used)
Jib (Needs a new zip)
Main Sail with batons (Great condition)
2x Fiberglass steering rods (1 x Long / 1 x short)
Extras (Shackles, rope, tools, etc. Too many to list)
The boat is not brand new and needs some attention (Hence the price). The fiberglass hull has had a couple of minor repairs, very small chips (Only to be expected with use) but is in very good condition. It has a new boom which replaces the old one (Bent during a capsize by the previous owner), copied locally and mate from light stainless steel. The spinnaker boom needs attention (Not copied and remade) I have never needed to use the spinnaker or ever wished to!
Reason for sale: - I don’t have the time to sail and it also scares the S*#T out of me.
