Not sure exactly how the bottom looks as I've been having trouble getting it out of the water.
It's up the Miami river and I'm trying to get it to a boat ramp so that I can get her home to work on. The closest ramps that I can find are about 5-10 miles away, and rowing that far isn't a great idea for me.
So if I could sail it to the boat ramp it'd be a lot more fun for my wife and I.
I'm hoping that I can find a sailplan or just wondering if a traditional mainsail from a MFG Sidewinder would fit (

From what I can see of the bottom she is very wine glassy.
there was apparently a daggerboard at one time, but that's been glassed over; and the holes ripped out of the deck appear to be where the rigging attached, including a possible forestay on the stem.
you can see the unique shape of the transom and rudder in the reflection...

Thanks again for any help.
