  1. Something about the classic lines and the trailer wheels really works for me. https://vancouver.craigslist.org/van/boa/d/port-moody-uffa-fox-flying-fifteen/7341579281.html
  2. A friend of mine just bought a house on the lake that came with a Bombardier 4.8. She doesn't sail so asked me to rig it up for her so friends could come over and use it. Hadn't been used in years so hull was a bit scruffy but sails we're literally brand new and foils were freshly varnished. Rigging and hardware simple and a bit lame but functionall. Rotating mast and roller fuller and orange color a plus. Boat sailed great and was surprisingly fast in light wind with me soloing.
  3. I have another 74' Rondar that needs work. Blew of the beach during a storm 2 years ago and it seemed simpler to just buy another boat( Prindle 16) than repair it. I keep meaning to chop it up but can't seem to get around to it. Any advice on repair ideas? Open to ugly patch and crazy paint job. It has air bags in bow and side tanks.
  4. If he plans to move it around or take it out for winter get a simple boat, swing keels are great. Easy to find Daysailors in New England. Here is a practical classic https://capecod.craigslist.org/boa/d/buzzards-bay-17-foot-siren-sailboat/7346238307.html
  5. Find a smaller jib and furl when overpowered.
  6. The picture in the yachts & yachting article you shared shows them sailing across the channel with smaller sails. $1800 seems fairly expensive unless it is in mint shape. The Wayfarer equivalent in Canada is the CL16 or Mistral 16 and are not hard to find.
  7. I second the mattress method. I used one on my 505 after damaging my tank hull joint trailering.
  8. Someone I know is looking at buying this mystery boat. 16 foot and built in Alberta by Sawyer. Any guesses?
  9. Not a true cat boat, just dropped the jib for solo simplicity. Not sure what is going on with the running backstay but they look doubled up to strengthen the mast. For a grand including trailer it has great appeal. Yellow color is a bonus.
  10. Fun factor rating seems high for a 10 footer
  11. Looks like a Ranger 16 and dimensions are similar.
  12. That a great find Bill. I saw the add on Facebook as well and for $100 thought it would be a fun looking tender for my sailboat. Alas it sold in a couple of days.
  13. I'll post boat number two in the oddball boat club An excellent candidate for Int. Bathtub 8
  14. The ramped cleat units are used on the FD
