Hello Sailnet....

Hi and greetings all,

I just bought a fixer upper seafarer 22 1983 with, (what I am told, Low miles), The wood inside is all rotted and the floor is all de-laminated and not usable. I guess I have to replace all the interior wood parts. The wiring doesn't seem to work as well and the outboard is seized. Other than the damage to the keel, and a few leaks around all the port windows and hatch she is a fine boat. I cant wait to see her float. It has a nice trailer. I was thinking of naming her "stimulus" as that was the source of her funding. I told my wife it attached its self to the truck on a ride to the store for potatoes and asked her If I could keep the boat as it followed me all the way home. I have little history on the boat other than it was only used to transport a old retired couple to church on Sundays. I bought 2 sheets of marine grade plywood and have commenced to replace some of the plywood panels in the forward v birth and cabin seats. Does anyone have a scanned copy of the actual 1983 seafarer 22 manual they could send my way? I got a box of stuff and 2 aluminum poles that I think may be the mast and boom. I'm not sure it all goes together! This is my first boat by the way. I have found very little seafarer sites on the net (just one, actually)

Thanks thats it for now I am going to start a web page on the boat on my web site devoted to this boat. Welcome To Redgate farm but until then fair winds and happy sailing!
