We purchased our Horizon 39 Ketch in St. Petersburg in Winter of 2005 and brought her up to Lake Michigan for some refit - up the eastcoast around Nova Scotia and in thru the St Lawrence. We took her back out this year via the same route and lost the centerboard around sable point Nova Scotia. We have talked to one other Horizon owner on Lake Huron who said he had lost his centerboard also, but he was able to get the mold and make a new one. We of course did not get his contact info, because at the time "we would never lose ours". Anyone else have this happen or have any info on where the mold could be tracked down?
Great vessel, 40 knot winds, full knock down, whales within 20feet and not a bit of problem. Would not trade her for any of the newer "plastic boats"
