Hello, newbie here, & only today l went to view a Paceship 23footer at Beaver Lake Arkansas.
Luckily I employed a local boat repair specialist who went underneath in full diving gear because the drop keel is almost snapped in two!
The owner was very open & honest about the whole thing having 1st of all informed me of a problem with the keel, & also being generous enough to pay for the inspection.
Well, l love the boat, love the price, but obviously the deal isn't going to go thro' unless I can source a drop-keel for a 1978 PY23 sailboat!
So........does anyone have any knowledge on this subject, or can you guide me to anyone who may have the keel for sale, or is there still a company that has taken over & bought out all the old Paceship equipment & parts?
Any help gratefully accepted..................
