Luger Leeward 16 Restoration in St Pete FL

Hi everyone,

I got a free 1967 Luger Leeward 16 sailboat from my neighbor. It's in bad shape but I'm excited to get her restored and on the water here in St. Petersburg FL. I'm fairly new to boating, and completely new to boat restoration. I've never done any fiberglass work, but the first order of business for this boat is to replace the stringers that have rotted out.

I found Dave Custer's great thread on his Luger Leeward restoration, and I'm using it to piece together my plan. However, I still have a few questions, so I've added to the end of the thread:

I appreciate the community's feedback! Thank you!

Welcome to the forum. Enjoy your new project.
