Got a new Sail Boat trying to Identify it

Last year I scored a really nice find on craigslist. I got a 27ft sail boat with trailer for $150

I took it out of the water myself so I know it floats :-) this past week I just scored a 9.9 outboard for it so I am hoping to get it wet this summer.

I am still trying to find the title (its around here somewhere) but I know it was no help in identifying it. This monday I hope to pull it out a bit so I can access the rear and see if it has a Hull Number of some sort on the back.

hoping maybe you folks can help identify it.

Here is a picture of it as well as a link to more pictures. My first order of business is to free up the keel :-)

I don't have any idea what kind of boat that is, but if you have a title for that trailer I would buy it. Near Seattle?

Damn Denise, you are good!
Sure looks like the Luger Tradewinds as the port lights match exactly.

Nerys,
You really need to get that center board working as it will really help your boat sail upwind.
I have a center board model 27' Tartan sailboat from 1967 so I know a thing or two about older boats. Some things you should check on are the chain plates, your standing rigging wires and soft spots on the decks if it was cored with wood or plywood. If all of these things are fine then you got a sail boat for a good price. Having a trailer is a nice feature if you have the vehicle to pull it.

I'd also recommend you read the Boat Inspection Trip Tips thread I started, as it will help you determine what areas of the boat need work.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

thank you SD! Looks like some kinda pop top to. That could be one sweet boat when it's fixed up. shallow draft to with the keel up.

Shallow draft with the board up means she can go gunkholing pretty well.
