Cool Hello Everyone!

Hi everyone.

I've sailed a little swing-keel on a good sized (20+mi by 4mi) inland lake for the past 7 yrs. Not a whole lot left to learn with her, so I bought a 1977 Kells 28 a few weeks ago. Typical classic plastic, built like a tank, enclosed lead ballast, modified fin-keel, transom rudder with a wheel, (not sure if I like that yet) and a 12hp Yanmar. (Small run boat, maybe 40 hulls?) If anyone else has one or had one in the past, please get in touch.

I had her out a few times, but she's on the hard for the winter now. Basically solid, but like any old boat, lots of work to do, so I'll need a little advice here and there.

I've crewed similar sized boats in local races for the past several years.

Fair Winds to all,
