Re: AMF Puffer Restoration

I've got no advice on the Puffer specifically, but I've found that DuckWorks Boat Builder Supplies is a good, reasonably priced source for hardware that works on smaller boats. They have smaller blocks, padeyes, and such that most places don't carry because they focus on the larger boats.

good luck on the refit, it looks like it has a lot of potential.

Hi,
I'm madly taking on the restoration of an Alcort Puffer! There are a lot of missing parts, and it looks as though you have a good handle on your repairs....can you give me any advice? Richard

Re: AMF Puffer Restoration

I really need to sell this project so i can focus on my new boat, plus it will fund some of the improvements and updates. 500 cash w trailer complete boat w/ sales and new running rigging included.

Did you ever find the rigging, dagger board and all for your boat?

Re: AMF Puffer Restoration

I agree with you. That is a concern i had when i purchased those particular pulleys :/. I have not invested in all the new hardware but when i do im probably just going to upgrade everything, even if its not necessary, just because i want the project, when completed, to be reliable and last.

Re: AMF Puffer Restoration

I'm not a fan of Blue Hawk anything, even though saying that is contrary to my own self-interest in Lowe's profitability.

Considering that the attachment to the boom is not a simple matter and boom control is very important, if it was my project, I would return those pulleys and buy some proper sailboat blocks. The smoother action and increased reliability are worth the few extra $$ to me.

Re: AMF Puffer Restoration

I plan to pick back up on the project soon since i recently acquired an air compressor and can make short work of the sanding. Hopefully the project will be well on its way again soon.
