Grumman Sailing Dinghy

I have recently acquired a 8 1/2 foot Grumman sailing dingy. I believe this boat was made around fifty years ago.
The hull, mast and sail seem to be in good shape but the wooden parts
are either rotten or missing. The keel needs to be replaced and the tiller and center board are gone. I was hoping someone could send me some info or even a picture that would help me to replace these parts.
Thank you

Hi Rusty - welcome aboard! Good luck with rebuilding your dinghy - I'm sure it'll be fun.

Can I suggest that you don't post your email address or other personal info on forums - apparently the bad people can see everything we can! There is a PM function if you click on the name of the user you wish to send it too...

Re: Grumman Sailing Dinghy

I have an opportunity to buy a Grumman dinghy (427-G-DS) from a friend. Complete with sail. What is a fair price? I don't want to over/under pay..
