Found on CL just north of Denver. A guy had the task of cleaning out a deceased friends barn and he ran across a boat.
I went and looked at it, been sitting since 1989. Had some issues but nothing too daunting. His ad said any offer, so I did, and got it for a song. Of course all the running rigging needs replaced but the standing looks very good, the sails are decent just need cleaning and all the cushions are there and in great shape. Centerboard, hinge, rudder and tiller look great.
There was one issue discovered cleaning it out. There had obvioously been water in the boat. Turns out the drain hose from the cockpit scupper to the drain was split open. getting to it will be a major bitch
This will keep me busy till find our next cruiser.

What are the things where a winch should be? Does anybody know if the small jib tracks are not original?
