I'm a picture poster now

So please help me figure out how to tackle this project. I just need the boat to last long enough to learn how to sail. Maybe get asa certified so we can bareboat in the future

Move it to a planet where gravity operates vertically, put it in the water and raise the mast. That should get you most of the way there.

That is so stupid. How would I get the mast in the spaceship?

Just strap it to the outside. You don't have to worry about atmospheric drag in space.

What's wrong with it, looks way better than what most around here call a project.
What's this about concrete?

I'm pretty sure Thule makes a rack for my ship.

This boat and sails have only been in the water like 20 times it would be a shame to take it to the landfill.

Now I'm confused, landfill?
You are the one with the earlier post about fixing the keel with concrete, right?

The builder used concrete for ballest in the keel.

Re: I'm a picture poster now

Does it float and keep most of the water on the outside? That's about all you need to learn. Just stay swimming distance from shore.

Re: I'm a picture poster now

well you would need to give some more info; ie. running/standing rigging condition, sail condition, sea cocks, if any, condition, any holes in hull.....
These are kind of a "must" to have in fairly good condition. Is there a motor??
If all functioning, there is not much more required if just sailing around the marina or whereever for some experiance.
Bring her back to life and give her a good wax/buff and you may even get a good return for your next one.

Every thing is in like new condition. Came with two sails the main and a jib and there like brand new. Any wood needs to be pulled and refinished. Has motor mount but no motor. The boat has sat for over 20 years , filled up with water then drained out the bottom threw the keel.

Re: I'm a picture poster now

Have sailed on a lot of these smaller trailer sailors. They're fun boats.

If this boat sat outside for 20+ years in all weather, the entire deck and hull probably are saturated and damaged.
Repairing all that would be a lot of time and money. It sounds like the boat is landfill.
Keep or sell the mast, sails, anything that can be removed from the boat, and the trailer. Then go buy a 20 foot boat in sailing condition.

If you really want to rebuild this boat. Take some shots close up and far away inside and outside that show the area you're asking about. And some photos that show the inside of the cabin layout in that area.
It looks like it could be designed with a swing keel. Go look at sailboats about this size that sit low on the trailer to see how this works. A sailboat needs a keel as well as ballast in order to sail in some direction rather than just be pushed around by the wind.
Who built the boat? Is it owner built or a brand? If it's a brand there might be a stamp or tag somewhere on the hull.
The boat would have to be covered and heated in a garage or in storage for a while (like months) so it can dry out before you could work on it.
Work probably would include rebuilding the entire boat, not just the interior wood and adding a keel. Consider landfill and buying a boat in sailing condition.

Go take a beginner sailing class together now. Don't wait for your boat.

Re: I'm a picture poster now

Worst case, I bet you at least get your $150 back in parts, and thats doing a lot better than most people do who buy a project.
