I'm new to sailing, not experienced. I just bought a 16 foot catamaran
from a friend of mine (he just wanted it out of his front yard). I don't know anything about boats, but I couldn't pass up the opportunity to try something new.
The boat is about 30 years old, it has fiberglass
pantoons and deck
between them. i've cleaned all the dirt and leaves off of it and realized that I have no idea how to connect the mast
to the boat. I think the rivets that are supposed to be there have long since deteriorated and i'm sure i'm missing a piece or two, i just don't know what.
Also, how do i go about making it legal
to put in the water
? i was doing the guy a favor by taking it off his hands, so i don't have the pink slip or registration
or anything. i simply have a boat that i'm not sure even floats, haha.
Can anyone give me some advice? its greatly appreciated...
