I've been working on it off and on for a year now with an expected launch date of next spring. I am setting it up for long family weekend trips on the Chesapeake. I could make money on the Compac if I sell it, the Starwind I will probably spend just about what it's worth fixing it up how I want it, but I'm going a little crazy on it... This is of course not putting any value on my time invested, but restoring/modifying things is my hobby/stress relief, so it keeps me from strangling my family and coworkers!
that's wild. the last picture looks like the area at the launch, at Marburg, where people keep their boats and I was talking to a guy with a compact 16, a little while back. it looked like yours. I had never seen one and was interested about the shoal keel's performance.
