Figured we could get some discussions going on specific boats.. Any suggestions on things to watch for, quick fixes, upgrades, etc.

I'm assuming that you mean Spirit 23's when you say "Specific boats" I have tons of implemented ideas but I'm waiting for our very own Spirit 23 forum which is beginning to take shape. Any traffic relating to these boats I hope will be directed to the "Specific " site for the N/A Spirit 23's http://www2.netdoor.com/~weaton/na23.html#/ne

So it seems, though it wasn't my site ...I know little about setting up these things. I've always felt that Spirit 23 owners do need a dedicated site...any takers?

Well guys, looks like I may be selling my boat. Asking 5000$ with motor obo, on dual axle trailer. Put new tires on it when I got it and repacked the trailer axles. Main, Jib, Genoa, newly installed depth sounder. Radio is setup to work with MP3 player only. ALL wood on the boat has been redone. Boat has been a major project of mine, and I hate to sell it, but I've got another project boat, and need one or the other gone.

Issues she has, are the keel sticks, and probably needs a good beating to work exactly right. Worked when i first got it, but seems to stick after she's sat up. Mast light doesn't work, but gets power to the mast step. Prob just a bulb or short in the wire. Front and rear safety rails were bent during Katrina. No need to replace. Scuffs and scraps from normal use. one of the main slugs broke they other day.

Anchor
Ladder
Tool box with parts
Fire extinguisher
Paddles
Screen companionway slats

Posting locally too. Let me know if you guys know anyone that is interested. Cash and local pick up only (Jackson, MS). See pictures below, feel free to email me with questions. Paul@TheAgencyMS.com
