Never heard of this boat before but...
NEW HORIZONS 26 sailboat specifications and details on sailboatdata.com
It is designed by Sparkman & Stephens, as is my Tartan 27', and, as such very much resembles my T27 in hull shape, center board design, keel stepped mast etc.
This boat should sail fine without the center board BUT it will not point into the wind as well without the center board. The cutaway forefoot full keel makes the boat hold her course quite well.
Where do you plan on sailing her?
Do you still have the original Atomic 4 engine in her? If so, you should also join the Moyer Marine forum for all your Atomic 4 questions.
