Re: How 'bout it? Any Soverel owners?

I have a Soverel 37 Sloop, 1972... new to me.. 500 hours on the Westerbeke 4-107, it is still very strong! Looking for a rebuildable engine water pump... and any other engine parts.. New is nice, but as a mechanic.... I can often make a POS hummm....
Working on bringing this one back to life... Sails great!

Exterior teak is trashed after 41 years in the Florida sun... looking to replace it all with composite plastic wood/recycled plastic.. doing some testing on several products. Any ideas?? Not interested in exterior real teak anymore...rather sail...

Center board was broken off and sank deep into the mud in the mooring... (had sat for better than 15 years) finally found it, raised it with a 55gal barrel of air.. it was about 400-500 lbs.. nut buster to get it out to the shop... will restore and replace.
Ditto with "wonderful boats" but truly a labor of love...
