Re: Desperate Newport 17 owner

Just a update on the boat. I am sitting on my deck watching it bob on the mooring. It has come a long way since pulling it out of the woods after 10 years in the fall. I have had new cushions made, new motor bracket. And for the centerboard, I blasted the rust off and smeared west marine brand filler all over it. Centerboard works touch and go and does stick some when pulled all the way up (I have to swim under) but other than that the boat sails amazing. I have not changed any rigging or sails and all has worked extremely well. Not the fastest but a very dry and smooth ride. Likes strong breezes the best.
