Hi all. I've spent the past 2 years rebuilding my 1964 westwind 21from keel up. Custom swing keel. All new standing rigging
and running rigging
. All new paint
and all hardware removed and resealed.
She's light weight and tons of sail square footage. Also armed with a deep reefing point in the main and small storm jib
for daring coastal hops. Think Catalina 22 only not slow!
Iwas able to bring this $250 trailer sailor back to life after 20+ years of sitting on a trailer. Im now skilled in the art of rope splicing rigging
fiberglass workand painting ..not to mention melting down and repouring lead!
I don't believe in motors...so she's wind or crew propelled with oars!
We will be sailing lakes of carolinas and Georgia then going on to tropical destinations keys...Mexico...Bahamas and beyond ....not a dare devil...just lots of spare time to wait on weather a constant need to escape civilization todestination deserted tropical aisle
Looking forward to hearing tales of paths less traveled and the best way to get lost there
