    505 Covid Project

    Just posting this since we're posting hull bottoms but this is 8266's sistership Waterat 8265 after Guck inc. cleaned up her gelcoat shortly after I got her. She has since had an additional blister - which Andy Pimental (Jibe Tech) made quick work of. They loved their pastels in the early 1990's! Tom

    It is a conventional rectangular centerboard trunk. It's completely normal for some water to enter the trunk as well. The board has a profile that causes it to gybe from one tack to another to help pointing ability. A little bit of rake will neutralize the jibing - which is important for higher winds and downwind sailing.

    I've logged many miles on the trapeze of that boat. She's a good boat. A bit heavy but she still moves well.

    Yep. It sure is! Boy, she has made it far down the coast! Last I knew Clayton James had her and was completely overhauling her. I guess he had enough of 505 work and sold her once he was done...

    Yes, that is correct. I visited that boat in 2016 and have wanted to buy it since. It needs a lot more work than what is evident in the pictures and the owner didn't want to budge on the price - which is why I didn't buy it. I might give him a call to see if he would compromise some. I'd love to fix her up but keep her fairly original (i.e. no sex change as we say in the 505 class). Tom

    No such thing as a Franklin 505. It looks like a Parker 24 series.

    How much do you want for it?
  9. I don't think this has been mentioned before but Young America (The Mermaid) from the 1995 AC made her way up to the Mahaney Arts Center (as in Kevin Mahaney - Skipper of the same boat) at Middlebury College in 2017. There are a couple of videos of the installation and many pics showing where she (temporarily) sat. I believe she is back at the Storm King Arts Center in NY (I called Middlebury College to see if she remained there - and she did not).

    This has probably already been posted but assuming the reserve is not outrageous this might be a good deal for an old Snipe in great shape: https://www.ebay.com/itm/1974-Snipe-Sailboat/254120471361

    Free lightning available. Only a $100 ferry ride (probably more) from the main land! https://capecod.craigslist.org/boa/d/19-ft-lightning-sailboat-and/6677843965.html

    https://cnj.craigslist.org/boa/d/snipe-sailboat/6635903592.html $200 obo for a Snipe just south of Newark, NJ.
  14. I have a friend in the industry who lives in Charleston. I can ask him if he knows anyone. Tom
