Can you identify this day sailer
The picture is a little hard to make out but I would think that the boat is one of three possible 1960''s era daysailors. If the boat has a centerboard then it probably is an early Paceship. If it has bilge boards (two centerboards, one on either side of the boat) then it is definitely an MFG built daysailer. As an outside chance there was Sailstar that looked a lot like the boat in question.
The bad news is that all three companies are long gone. Paceship was absorbed by AMF. Sailstar was absorbed by Bristol and I have no idea what happened to MFG. The good nes is that there were few proprietary parts used in those days with most parts coming off of the shelf. What kind or parts do you need?
