it's going well here... a lot of sanding/grinding right now. the goal is to make her as stout as possible, so it's more mods than repairs. i'll be doing a lot of sailing on lake dillon and lake granby, which are at about 9k and 8k feet respectively. winds blow hard enough to force boats off the water daily, and I want to be able to hang as long as possible w/o breaking anything.

i'll post some update pics this weekend... didn't get the camera out last time.
Yikes. I hope you can keep her upright. Sounds exciting

Hey, does anyone on here have an extra Jib sail that they don't use, don't need that they would sell? And/or a main sail too, I suppose because I got word that the mainsail I got with my boat is from an Apollo, and its ripped anyway. I was going to have my wife patch it, but if anyone has one to sell used that functions, I will probably want/need them by the time I'm done making it pretty again.

TRATOR !, SACRELIGE !, You would sell your V17 and get a.... ... ODay?

Just kidding, those are good little boats. I would've probably done the same thing.

Yea I think they are pretty good in all respects. I like the keel design in concept, but I've always wondered if they are stable enough without the weight being down as low as a swing keel.

No, they have a centerboard for the purpose of reducing leeway, but the weighted area is in a stub keel along the bottom of the hull.
There could be exceptions of coarse, but the ones I have looked at were that way.

This one appears to be a heavy keel i may be wrong about the boat it looks like a swing keel the pivot looks like its outside of the boat. Also it does have small cabin that the part that sticks up is very rounded. It also has a large cockpit for the boat size it has pull i guess toe rails as well as a pulpit. The boat is white deck with yellow gelcoat bottom btw i belive thats the original color at this point.
