hi my name is joseph and i desingned and manufactured sonic 2
3 in montreal canada until 1984 so if you have any questions please e mail me and i ll be happy to answer i am no longer in the boat business but designing that boat [i still have the original lines of the hull] was my greatest challenge so please feel free to ask any questions regarding my sonic 23

I have sent emails to him but to no avail! : ( For your hatch cover I would get a piece of heavey plexiglass and encase the edges in wood and a rubber seal around the hole, hinge and fasten it. It would seem the odds are against finding a replacement, though you know there is one in a boat yard (boat grave yard) somewhere. Happening uponwould be damn near impossible! I am right next door to Montreal so I will keep an open ear and eye for ya. And not to be a bother(which I already am) any help in rigging this beast would also be of great help! This is my third sailboat. 1st was a force five, loved it and should have kept it. 2nd was a Pintail. Sailed like a claw footed bathtub, but a fun, safe daysailer for a small crew. And the rigging of both of these was very basic, simple, and obvious. I have never even boarded a cruiser or any sailboat the size and breadth of this undertaking! I will have my hands full to say the least! I have a mooring secured on Lake Champlain and am just chawing at the bit for the ice out! Have you launched yours from a trailer or do you take it to the boat yard and use a travel lift? Enough already.................and thanks so much!
