Lightning rebuild
 
Good morning all. I have just got an old Lippincott Lightning. Planning on a a lot of work between now and the spring. I'm hoping there are a few people that can offer advice in general and on Lightnings in particular. Mostly cosmetic and some rather tricky fiberglass work.
Just joined the SailNet community, so will see if I can post pics from time to time.
Hope to be here often.
Jay

Hi Jay,

I think we might be in the same boat at the same time. Just started digging into a 1975 Nickels Lightning. Old beast of a boat. Here's a few photos.

Taking it down to the outer skin and then rebuilding.. Should be interesting. Boat weighed 900 pounds (hull only). Crazy.

Hey, firstlight,
We'll have to keep in touch during the rebuilds.
And find out how to view the photos.
Jay
