Re: How 'bout it? Any Soverel owners?

Hello I just bought a Soverel 35 last year. I purchased her on the west coast of Florida and sailed her to the east coast via the Okeechobee Water Way and got to experience doing the Okeechobee Limbo. She is now docked in Stuart Florida where I am in the process of cleaning her up a bit and doing some repairs with the hopes of spending sometime on the water this summer. :-)

Re: How 'bout it? Any Soverel owners?

She is in the water but one thing lead to another and my cleaning her up and a few repairs seemed to expand a little. We have stripped, sanded and clear coated all the interior teak. Installed new fridge and replaced the head and galley counter tops with Corion and under mount sinks with new faucets. Hatches and companionway have new glass installed and all interior cushions are being recovered. Next is a coat of cabin paint followed by painting the topside if this rainy weather will give me a break. Then we will be installing the new stanchions and bow pulpit.

We are really getting to know Osprey and enjoying making her beautiful again. I did tell my wife we need to draw a line and get out sailing but I donít think that will happen until next summer.

Re: How 'bout it? Any Soverel owners?

I have a Soverel 37 Sloop, 1972... new to me.. 500 hours on the Westerbeke 4-107, it is still very strong! Looking for a rebuildable engine water pump... and any other engine parts.. New is nice, but as a mechanic.... I can often make a POS hummm....
Working on bringing this one back to life... Sails great!

Exterior teak is trashed after 41 years in the Florida sun... looking to replace it all with composite plastic wood/recycled plastic.. doing some testing on several products. Any ideas?? Not interested in exterior real teak anymore...rather sail...

Center board was broken off and sank deep into the mud in the mooring... (had sat for better than 15 years) finally found it, raised it with a 55gal barrel of air.. it was about 400-500 lbs.. nut buster to get it out to the shop... will restore and replace.
Ditto with "wonderful boats" but truly a labor of love...

Talked the wife into a new electric windlass and if all goes good I will be looking for a new home for my Seatiger 555.
