Identify Old Sailboat ?

I'm asking for your help in identifing this old "project" sailboat (pic attached). The only thing I know so far is that it's 25', swing keel, with a zephyr spar. Once identified... I can start researching for rebuild. Appricate any assistance... thank you.

Re: Identify Old Sailboat ?

ps: (if you already own this boat disregard) you can get a comparable boat, ready to use for as low as $2000

Re: Identify Old Sailboat ?

Welcome to the forum sail_on.
There are lots of boats of that size in sail able condition for cheeeep.
However...if you're looking forward to working on her...well that's anouther story.
And Rakuflames is bad...very bad!

An old codger I had as a mentor once taught me that, "there is no such thing as a free kitten".
