Need Pics of Anyone's 13' Rainbow Daysailer

Greetings!
I recently was able to pick up a 1970, 13' Rainbow daysailer. The manufacturer is Rainbow Yachts out of Sacramento, CA back in 1970. There isn't any rigging on the boat for main sheet or jib sheet and I'm looking for any photos of one that's been restored to original layout or something similiar. Thanks!

Matt

Not in Sacramento; but there’s a Rainbow Marine in Battle Ground, WA, who make a 13' daysailer.

Thanks for your research Gord but I'm pretty sure that's not the same company.

I just did a search for Rainbow Yachts in the CA corp database. It was started in 1968 but has been place in a suspended status. There's a business address but I doubt it's valid.

So, I'm still in search of another photo of a Rainbow Yacht in the approximate length of 13ft. Anyone else?

Sorry, that's not the boat...thanks for post though.

Here's a photo of the rainbow 13 that I bought. It's fiberglass. This is the first day I went to check her out. We've already bought the access ports to install to get main sheet tackle installed. I just don't want to jump the gun and install something somewhere where I'll regret it and then have to move it later. Go Chargers! Die Broncos!!!

I have a 13'4" Rainbow made by Rainbow Yachts Inc. Sacramento CA....it's got a belly full of rigging. The mast is 19'4". It is 13'4"LOA and 5'11" (in?) beam. I was told it is rigged for racing. The (block?) is amidships. I will send you photos of any part you ask for. This little sloop was, at one time in Gold Beach, Oregon. It has "Aldebaran Gold Beach" lettered on the stern.

Thanks for the reply and offer on pics. I've sold my Rainbow since it was just distracting me from our 65 footer. No room for it now anyway either. I'd still be interested in seeing the layout via some of your pics....and I'm sure some others would too. Please post...:-)
