I recently bought a seaworthy
1985 Sovereign 23 Adventure. I've had it out already a few times playing with the sails
. Previous owner took me out last week for an afternoon out in the gulf. I've been spending time cleaning
and repairing little things. I had the motor
gone through with new lower end rebuild
, throttle cables
, prop, gear oil
. One of the headsails is at Doyle getting a grommet repaired. New Harken
traveler car, new protectors on the lanyards etc etc etc.
In other words, it's not junk. Im taking her to the yard for bottom paint
etc around March.
Unfortunately I have a work schedule that is 12 to 14 hour nights with rotating days off each week. So trying to get with a school
etc where it would be weekly etc makes it a tough challenge.
I was hoping to find someone who would say belong to a club but does not own a boat and would love an opportunity to sail my boat and teach me in the process. I will try the local youth yacht club next time Im there.
I am in the St Petersburg Florida
area. If anyone knows of a college student or youth that would like a chance to teach and have some use of the boat, please send me a message.
