Looking For An Evanson Robin 11 Foot Sailing Dinghy One Design Class Sailboat

I am looking for a Rhodes Robin 11 foot sailing dinghy with centerboard built in the 1960's. Robins had either a cold molded or fiberglass hull with wood decks / seats. They carry a main sail and jib, with a black and red Robin as the sail logo -- some have spinnakers, as that was an option from the P. Evanson Yacht Company. Any leads to an available boat would be appreciated ~ project boats are welcome as long as they are complete with the two part mast, boom, sails, rudder/tiller, centerboard and standing rigging.
Thanks!

Robin Sailing dingy

Just came across your post.
Are you still looking for a Robin Sailing Dingy? I have one for sale. It has the 2-part mast and boom assembly. Needs sails. Fiberglass construction. Wood deck needs repair.

Robin Dinghy ...

Let me know particulars ... condition, what's included, where located, etc.
Do you have the sails and do they need repair? The sails are the expensive part!
Are you able to send images?
Thanks,
AJ

AJ,
I will take pics tonight and send tomorrow. Included is: mast, boom, rigging, centerboard, floorboard and trailer (which is only 4 years old). Think the oars are there, too.
May have more, have to look tonight. I haven't looked in a few months. I'm in AL, but moving to NY in the next few months. Would like to sell before then. Where are you? Might have sails in NY at my Mom's. I'll have her look tonight. If so, we can get them to you.

I replied to you back on the 4th requesting your direct e-mail.
Did you get the message?
I would like to see the images and know if your Mom has the sails.
Thanks!

sails

AJ, apparently the sails didn't survive the move, or they went with the 6-meter we gave away several years ago. Either way, can't locate them. Let me know if you are still interested in the Robin.

Evanson Robin on the move... flying north this month.

The Robin is still in AL, but I am moving in the next 3 weeks and can bring it with me if interested. Don't know if there are any sails. I have been in NY for a couple of days and will look for them in my mother's garage tomorrow before I go back to AL. Is the presence (or lack) of sails a deal breaker for you? What is your price range? Trailer is in perfect condition. Boat was built in late 60s / early 70s but in good condition, too.

Lack of sails is not a deal breaker, I have one with sails for patterns, the prices are all over the place, please send me pic's as a starting point if you'd like. Thanks and Regards Robin264
