still here

Several people have PM'd me asking about the boat. I tried to respond, but this site requires 5 posts before PM. Sorry for the delay in getting back to you all.

To answer a few of the questions: I'm located in central NJ. The boat is still available. I tried to fix the wheel this weekend: removed it, tied a rope around it to try to seat the bead, took it to a gas station to use their compressor. However, I could not get the bead to seat. The wheel is fairly new - I had to buy it to make the trailer road-ready when I acquired the boat. Due to the mast snafu, I have not used the boat since- so the wheel has only 20 miles or so on it!

There is a nice centerboard and the hull is quite sound. The finish has weathered a bit, but may come back with a little TLC.
