Re: Seafarer 24 swing keel, keel pivot? Sailing qualities?

Good boat...nice looking boat too if it's traditional deck...Mine was a racer for most of it's life and was rigged custom by original owner who knew what he wanted,,split adjustable backstays,all lines to cockpit,etc....some were kits where the owner added rigging.... I owned one for a year before moving onto a C-29 as I needed more headroom. I had the traditional deck...which only had 4'11 headroom...the "futura" deck version gives you almost 6-foot headroom I hear...Congrats and enjoy...those boats can take a beating for their size...just have a drop board or three in and the hatch closed when it gets to blowin as the companionway thresh-hold is fairly low...I still miss her a bit I'll say and here's a few pics i have of her..
