Post Galilee 15 - Information and PDF's needed

Not long ago (2012 and 2013) there were conversations going on here on Sailnet about the Galilee 15.. I now own one of these which I bought in RI but the boat is in sad shape. Someone here called "Bubba the Geek" ? said that he (or she) was in posession of PDFs showing the specs on different parts of this
If you are still out there Bubba, please send me the files you may have showing details of the rudder/tiller system . What I have is so jerry-rigged I'd like to see what the original designs should look like. Thanks to all. Tom

Hi TF,

Welcome aboard! I remember that thread that you mentioned where folks were seeking that owners manual. Poor Bubba may have been scared off by the sheer number of people that wanted it! The interest isn't surprising though - it's a pretty boat. I didn't find the document online, but there are some nice pictures of the kick-up rudder and daggerboard in some old listings on the SailingTexas website:

I also found a more current ad where the seller mentions that he has the manual. His name and contact info is in the ad. Perhaps you'll have more luck with him than Bubba.

Good luck!
