Perfect! Looks great- You're gonna love it! Wonderful boats. When you look at the keel you cant even tell where the joint is between the glass and lead. I helped crush one up for the junkyard and I can tell you they are well made boats where it counts. It took half a day to get the keel off!

Yup, this thing makes the money I have spent on the REs' seem like chump change.    I got it for less than I payed for my 07' but I will probably end up more that triple the figure into it by the time I am ready to take it on a long trip.   

The boat is sailable as it but for the motor,  the previous owner said it would not run.  It took me about 20 minutes with the manual to realise the choke lever was missing and the throttle cable was damaged.   Got her running now and a new throttle cable on the way.    I attribute the ease of troubleshooting to my Enfield ownership. 

Now I just need to get her pulled and painted, tune up the electrics and convert over to LEDs.   

I am looking forward to getting her out and hoisting the sails once the new throttle cable shows.  Hopefully next weekend.
