I'm not a frequent poster but I do get the chance read the forums
a few times a week.
I've recently purchased a new to me semi fixer upper Skye 51 down here in Mexico
. Unfortunately searching the internet
has not been very helpful in finding out more information about my new boat
The basics I know are that it is a Kaufman and Ladd designed boat
commissioned by Alden Marine
, (or so I've been told). According to my USCG Doc's she was built in Kaohsiung Taiwan
She was sailed down to Mexico
with the Ha Ha in 2010 and has been here ever since. I hoping some of the people on the forum might be able to help me understand her history
. I know she was in San Diego
for awhile before being sailed down to Mexico and that the P.O. used to recreation race
her some. Unfortunately the P.O. passed away a couple of years ago so getting information from him is not possible.
When she was in San Diego
she was called "At Last". I am just hoping someone on this forum might be able to provide more information about the boat
, it's history
or more information on Skye 51's. I think mine is one of the last ones built, I think the production run was from 1980 - 1986, and she was built in 1986. She is cutter
rigged and a very beautiful boat. I already get complements about her and I've just started the upgrading process.
I really appreciate any information any of you can provide.
