I have a Soverel 26, hull #11, built in 1976. I'm in the process of a major overhaul - currently re-coring parts of the deck - and aim to launch in 2011. I'm not sure of the entire history of the boat, but as far as I know, its been on the Great Lakes her whole life. I live on Lake Erie. She was originally orange and came with a 5hp Westerbeke deisel inboard (which I'm scuttling) and a double spreader tapered masthead rig. She's been variously named: "Duet", "Sybaris", and "Seabird II". At one point she was a Sea Scouts boat.
I just wanted to get this posted here in case anyone has any experience/information on this model to share or has any questions I might answer.
Once I get a new USB cord for my camera, I'll start posting pics of the work both on this site and plastic classics forum.
