Just found this topic today and have also sought out Seidelmann information. I recently purchased a 1978 Seidelmann 25 after almost 3 years of searching. The majority of reviewers aren''t as kind or objective as Jeff H. is, but I haven''t seen anything yet that would have prevented me from buying mine. It''s solid across the entire deck and sails very well once the wind picks up and she hardens some. Mine is definitely a project boat, and perhaps she''ll never be considered a ''jewel'', but as Jeff said, if you like the way she looks and sails (and I do), then that''s what matters.
I''ve looked for clubs or forums that pertain to Seidelmann''s, but have had limited success. Please consider emailing me with your thoughts and ideas regarding any modifcations or remodeling you''ve done to your Seidelmann. So far, I''ve had a couple responses to emails I''ve sent to current owners Thanks.
