Thumbs up ... and another

Guys, thanks for this thread- just brought my '72 V17 home last weekend. My first boat...

Anyhow, I admire the work you're doing and have done- these are cool little boats.

I'm working out some kinks, which of course means rebuilding the keel, but seems like she's in very original shape. Bought her from original owners in western Kansas, and they were in love with her... she was still filled with the original styrofoam floatation blocks!

Anyhow, I'll be working on her again this weekend and will take some pics covering hardware. Also, the sellers gave me some original docs from MacGregor- rigging and keel operation instructions as well as some sales brochures... not sure if these are online anywhere, so I'll get'em scanned in and posted ASAP... if nothing else they're entertaining (!)
