Description: 1980 Prindle 16 on trailer, with extras!

I'm upgrading to a larger, more family-oriented boat, and I don't have the room or money to keep both. "Tequila Sunset" is a Prindle 16 that comes on a very nice home-built trailer with two sail tubes and a storage chest up front. In addition to the trailer, there is a (also home built) beach dolly that fits right in the trailer for transport. It also comes with a spare set of standing rigging, and two sets of sails in good shape - the original "Tequila Sunset" colored sails, and a set of white Smythe racing sails.

The good:

- everything is included to put the boat in the water and sail ***

- spares for many parts are also included

- running rigging and all hardware is in good shape

- a custom-made cargo net for the front comes with the boat

- comes with beach wheels

- the boat is FUN and FAST

- tramp is in serviceable condition

The not-so good

- as of this ad, the boat has a small puncture in the inside of the starboard hull - a mistake when pulling the boat out the last time we sailed, it wasn't on the trailer quite right and hit a sharp metal part. 50 bucks worth of fiberglass and some work will fix it up. I will fix it myself, but won't be able to until probably Feb of next year (I live in MO)

- The rudders need adjustment: They tend to kick up when you don't want them to, which is a pain. I'm sure that's an easy fix if you have the time to fiddle with them, but I haven't had the time. They could also use sanding and painting.

- I don't have a title for the trailer, and it's not currently licensed in FL. If I don't sell the boat soon I'll just apply for a title in FL for a home-built trailer, which it is, and then it can be licensed.

- I don't currently have a title for the boat either, but should, in a week or two. I will update this ad when that's done.

I can't think of anything else at the moment. We have had so much fun on this boat! I love sailing it, but I can't keep them all! Here are some (many!) pictures, and a couple of videos.

This video is of our last trip (overnight beach camping)

And here's one with some actual sailing (not a whole lot of wind, but a good time with the family)
