Hi From Surrey BC Canada

I own a Spirit 23 from North American, a Dallas Texas gone under company. She's (will be) a beauty I'm restoring her.

Two tips:

Stay on the chart.
Check tides and current tables faithfully.

Remember - the slimy side stays down.

OK OK already!! LOL This is the ad I found the boat with last March: American Spirit 23 sailboat for sale Since then I've rebuilt the trailer with all (4) new brakes & 1 new axle. All metal rusting or broken was welded, sandblasted & galvanized.Here's a few pics the transom view is what the hull looks like now. I have to wait for warmer temps to epoxy the blisters.

Pretty little boat! Not sure that too many trailer sailors are made any more, other than Catalina and Hunter.

Enjoy her!
