Seidelmann Yachts

I acquired a ''82 Seidelmann 25 w/o spars, retro fitted her as a fractional rig witha mast 2 '' shorter and the boom 2'' off coach roof instead of 4'' that gave same main sail size; have 130 genoa on roller = lost about 60 sq ft of high aspect as result that on light days may have been nice to have or in a race on such a day. She really more 1/4 ton design with deck beam at 9.5 and waterline beam at 7,lwl is increased and lends a bit; however having the wider deck beam helps as location for counter-balance. I like this boat for her elegant lines and handling, points high - sail her year round in NJ, race to include ocean appearance. Jace
