After 3 months of renovation Team Spirit is going in this Saturday.
Attached photographs show how little this design has dated, especialy with the more modern graphics.

Re: Ready for Launch

I've seen a few trailers where someone will take some PVC and make a curved entryway to help guide the keel into the channel.

Re: Ready for Launch

Got the boat in on Sat. but may be be able to let you know how getting it back on the trailer goes sooner than I expected. Got a leak around the keel box, doh! and will need to take out of the water to have some f/glass work done. Not much wind on Sat. so it was more of a motor sail. Still it was pleasant enough and I am sure once the leak is sorted she'll be a fine boat and fun to sail. I don't expect there can be many of these NA Spirits UK side of the pond. Good to here from you.
