Hi RobVG,

I was beginning to think I was the only one left with a Sportyak II sailboat until I found your posting. I bought mine used in 1978 and it looks just like your pictures except it is not restored. The wood is there except the outriggers have been replaced with cut plywood by another party that had been using it so I need to have the dimensions of what the original outriggers were to replace them. I did not see the short oar that is used for the rudder in your pictures but I assume you have that as you made reference to it when you sailed. I have the rudder oar but the original main two oars were missing when I bought it and the marina supplied me with standard length oars which made rowing interesting.
