Heard that, Sal.....
Just got back from surveying her. THEN I find another thread about them here, once I knew what the real name was!
American FG Co. 2+2 Mini-tonner
, helluva mouthful for such a small boat. Built sometime around 1977; probably in S.C. but mebbe in Connecticut??? All depends on who ya talk to. The current owner showed me all the original brochures, etc and copied the segment on this model. Lousy prints; but legible.
This one has some sort of problem with the keel/CB trunk and it leaks "some" !!! Other than natural aging of topside's gelcoat and a small crack in a well just astern of the hatch; it's in decent shape. The sails look OK with a bit of soiling. The slugs on the main do not have any wear! All attachment points are sound. There's one small 3/8" hole in the Genny where a tell-tale was torn off.
The cockpit was a surprise! With the coaming running from the sloped hatch bulkhead, I (mistakenly) assumed that the seating would be down in the boat and the sole would be near the hull. WRONG! The seating is actually flush with the hull joint line, the coaming acts as seat-backs and the sole is raised near or more than a foot above the bilge to allow for the pair of quarter berths to run under the seating. Quite disappointing, as I wanted a "dry" boat.
Other than needing some TLC, a new suit of running rigging and whatever it would take to repair the trunk..she's good to go!
Sits on a nice; but light-weight trailer with little sno-mobile wheels/tires. I doubt if curb weight of the whole shebang goes more than 1100 pounds!
Once I price materials, I might just make an offer... a low ball one!...or just wait for the "right" one ta come along
