Seaflight 12

Hello I just became a Sailnet member. I own a 1968 Starcraft Seaflight or Seaflite (or something like that).

It is a great sailboat specially for starters like me. It seems that there is not a lot of this boat around, so if you do own one, or have the owners manual I would like to hear more about it.

thank you.

I just bought a 1960's Starcraft Seaflite and am looking for pictures or another owner who might have a manual that can help me with the rigging. I think it has all of the parts EXCEPT a BOOM. Can any of you help me become more knowledgeable of this boat? Many thanks.

Manual for SeaFlite

Dear MossDuck:
Thank you for the offer of a copy of a 1967 SeaFlite. I saw the one page diagram attached to your message, which is very helpful. I wound up not buying the SeaFlite but would still like to get the manual for the following reason.
The lady that owns the SeaFlite is a spry 80 years old but can't remember where she might have lost the boom and the tiller. I have an old tiller from a Grumman canoe sailboat that I think will work, now that I've seen your picture. I'd like to manufacture a boom, about 6 battens and the rings that hold the sail to the mast (as well as new lines), and let her keep it on my shoreline so that she can sail it. She lives about a mile from camp on NYS Cayuga Lake.
Would it be better to copy and mail it? I'm happy to pay your copying and mailing cost if so. Here's my mailing address: Timothy M Taylor, 1104 Duke Parkway West, Hillsborough, NJ 08844. Many thanks for your reply.

No idea if anyone is visiting this forum any longer but I would really like a copy of your manual. I have an early 70 something seaflite. I actually have all parts except the pin that attaches rudder to stern. I even have extra rings.

I really want to restore this boat, need manual. I sailed as a kid but it was on a Chrysler Man-o-war and had completely different rigging. I had it in the water a few times and the rigging just didn't fell right.

I am pretty sure it's leaking (slowly) - so going to have to go over the hull this summer.

I can't PM since I just joined and have to wait 7 days. if you are still out there, please PM. Thank you.
