Calling All North American Spirit 23 Owners

If we get enough action here we may get our own Thread, but these beautiful boats are few & far between.!!

All pictures I have are on the hard, as I've yet to set her afloat. The bottom looks like it has the pox right now & it's too cold to fill with epoxy, so the hull is basically waiting & drying out a just little more (it's been out of the water for a few years) Pressure wash this weekend I hope.

Here's a few, the Keel LE is a solid stainless rod & plate I attached to the damaged keel bottom end. The hull pictures are current hull state waiting for warmer weather to epoxy.

I had one 15 years ago in Ft. Myers, Fl. Loved it, 5 sails with spinniker. Pop top, step mast by my self. Built custom trailer for it. I missed her untill I get my Offshore 33 sloop.

Great I bought my 79 Spirit last summer and have spent most of the winter doing a little restoration. If I can I will post some pictures. I found some bad core around the deck but a little west systems fixed it right up SLOW FLIGHT

Hey I just got one of these; for the life of me I can't figure out how to hook up the mainsheet. It looks like there is a spot for it to attach about 1/2 way down the boom, but I don't see any coresponding point on the boat to attach to. there are two eyes on the transom one on each side of the tiller inbetween where the backstays attach. Of the few pictures I can find on the Internet some are at the back of the boom, but I can't get a good look. Some attach mid boom and have some kind of track in the middle of the cockpit (no evidence anything like this was ever installed on my boat.) and most seem to be at anchor with the main sheet removed entirely. Would one of you please be so kind as to educate me on this.
