Old new boat - 37' Soverel sloop

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Soverel 37 sloop, 1972. Centerboard 3'6"/9.0'. Just bought her as an ebay bride, and was greatly surprised when I finally got to see her down in Hampton VA at the slip. This oldy worldy looking sloop is very conventional down below, with huge storage under the cockpit, and overall is built solid. The deck and coach house appear to be solid fg with big dogdown ports. No leaks. She came with a fairly new 24hp diesel, runs sweet.

I expect her to be pretty tender with only 3'6" draft, but that makes it a dream in the Bahamas, where I plan to winter this year.

So now it's commissioning time, haul, wash, bottom paint, minor rig work, sail maintenance and some brightwork and general elbowgrease. Then a run up to New England from Norfolk VA - outside or gunkholing up the Chessie? TBD

Repairs to 1972 37' Soverel

I have a 37' Soverel which was badly damaged during hurrican Iven a number of years ago. So far the boat has been on the beach drying.
It is time to get started - there is so much work to be done on the hull exterior at the joint where hull and deck join, all standing & running rig needs to be replaced. The mast has been repaired. It broke at the spreader level. All wireing, interior ect., needs to be redone. The engine is out but will need to be reset and tuned and shaft balanced.
The swing keel needs to have new pins and cable installed. Rudder and stearing system needs to be redone.

Question - does anyone out there have a factory specification with installation diagrams for all components installed in an original Soverel 37?

Looking forward to your help

Thanks,

Hello.

Can anybody post or better yet email me a photo of a Soverel 37? I am considering the purchase of a Soverel that has been sitting unused at my marina for a while. Unsure at this time which model it is, only that it is a centerboard as the max draft to get in is a little more than 4', and its looks are old school. I'm thinking its a 37...Thanks!
