Sailboats built by Customflex (USA) by year on Sailboatdata.com

Customflex Inc in Whitehouse, OH - Boat Manufacturers

there are more google items--you may wish to google customflex--not many were pictured.

good luck.

Hey, for $130.00, how can you go wrong? It probably won't take much to get it sailing and it could be fun.
I certainly would go into it with the idea of turning a profit though.

Re: can someone help me identify this boat

Hazel,

Like Knotty said, it's hard to go wrong for the price. If the trailer is in road-worthy condition, then if worse comes to worst you could likely recoup most of your investment by selling it without the boat.

That said, go into it with both eyes open. Take a hard look at the spars and rigging, the sails, the hull, etc. That $130 may just be the cover charge at the door, and your final bar bill could easily exceed that if you find yourself having to replace stuff.
