Hey all!

I consider myself a "new-ish" individual to sailing. My experience included 5 years of camp when I was 12-17 yrs old. This camp had Lasers to take out on a small, deep lake. I learned the general terms and coordination of sailing a small, quick boat. And how to turtle! I became highly proficient in rolling that boat all the way around without getting wet or losing the daggerboard.

Other than that, at my cottage I have an ancient Sunfish that recently took a turn for the worse (mast fell over and tore up the hull with it).

That's my history with sailing, however, I have recently been gifted an old sailboat in need of some repairs (pretty much the entire thing). However, other than sanding down the pieces I'm familiar with and re-painting, I'm not entirely sure what kind of sailboat it is! Which makes it difficult when it comes to the rigging. If anyone can recommend a forum that I would benefit from the experience of people familiar to different sailboat designs and rigging, that would be excellent!

All I can tell for sure is that the mast is held down by guy-wires at 4 different points. It's approx 16', completely plastic frame shape.

Looking forward to learning more about sailing and getting this boat on the water!

Cheers,
Kate

Hello and welcome keep posting until you can post a picture on here of the boat. Several of us here are quite good at identifying boats what is the him hull I'd number usually cast into the stern of a boat like a serial number on a car it would help in identifying the boat

The link to my photobucket album is now in the body of my intro. If anyone has any ideas what this boat might be, let me know! I haven't been able to find a registration plate on it, unfortunately.
