Re: Some Spirit 23 History Anybody??

I've got a spirit 6.5. Great little boat and has the distinct advantage of being so light that my van can pull it anywhere with ease. It's also much faster than my brothers 32 footer. ;-) I'm currently planning to spend a week on her in the Keys next fall with my wife. I hope she likes it. It'll be our first extended cruise.

If you really want to ensure your wife enjoys the cruise - do yourself a favor and plan to stay at some marinas with showers/restaurants/etc. It makes a HUGE difference if you can get off the boat - take a hot shower - get a nice meal - walk into town etc.

Just acquired a Spirit 21 a few days ago and starting refurb, mainly cosmetic.

Need to replace a couple of stanchions, renew swing keel cable, varnish wash boards & tiller. With a general clean and anti-foul and I should be ready to go. Sails are in really good condition and the only thing I am short of is the sliding galley, any 21 owners out there with info on the galley that might assist me in making one.

I am based in the Isle of Man an offshore Island off the North West coast of
England, probably best known for the IOM TT races.

Love to hear from other 21 owners
