New SJ21 Owner in Maine

Postby LButcher » Sat Jul 30, 2016 7:59 am

We Moved to Maine from Bellingham, WA two years ago and have been suffering from sailboat withdrawal ever since. I just became the proud owner of a 1974 SJ21. She needs a lot of cleaning up as she was stored under a tarp for 12 years. There were things growing in the duff in the cockpit and there was about 6" of water below decks. One of the spreader arms broke off at the mast. With all that, roof and transom seem to be sound. I'm sure I'll be coming here to get advice as I get farther into the project. She was setup for racing with a mid cockpit mainsheet traveler, and all lines run to the cabin. Sails are complete and seem to be in good shape (stored inside).
I'm looking forward to getting her spruced up and in the water to introduce the grandkids to sailing in Maine!

HID #CLK21-463-0274, previously sailed in VA before traveling to ME and being put into storage.

Fair winds to all!

Looks like a nice little MKI. We're definitely around to help but you might also want to check out the class forums located at www.sj21class.org as there might be some other SJ sailors in your area. The local hand can sometimes be more valuable than a forum poster miles away:)
