Thumbs up We love ours

We have a 1974, hull number 47 and love it. With the tall rig it is a fast, easy to sail boat. Sea Jules has been re-powered with a 20hp Perkins diesel. The deep keel is cause for concern sometimes as we cruise the Chesapeake. We have Barient 26's and wish we had self tailing, but other projects always seem to be higher priority. We have recently:

1. Added blocks and a winch to the top of the cabin so we can raise the main from inside the cockpit.
2. Installed a single line reefing system, again, so we don't have to leave the cockpit.
3. Installed a strong track system to raise the main with ease.
4. Installed lazy jacks.
5. New bimini and dodger.
6. New class D VHF.

As you can see, we keep find new ways of parting with our disposeable income. It's a great boat!
