Hello,

Long time water lover and lake resident in Alabama. I was recently fortunate enough to be given my first sailboat. It is a Skipjack 15 by Newport Boats. Been fooling around with it and hoping to get it going soon.

I have everything with the exception of the center board. I am pretty sure that it is around 1/4" thick.

Anyway, looking forward to talking with you all.

Thanks,

Jeff

Well I finally made a centerboard for this boat out of 1/4" aluminum. I scaled the dimensions off of a drawing I found online. If anyone needs any direction or photos for rigging this boat, let me know. I had a hard time finding anyone with info so I will be glad to share.

Have a great 4th weekend!

I remember seeing your first post and thought I had replied.

A guy in my neighborhood has a Skipjack, but I've never seen it off the trailer.

Growing up, I thought they were really good fast boats. Pretty, too. I knew the guy who had hull #1, but I have never sailed one.
