It begins again

It begins again this week. I bought a 1973 Luger Westwind sailboat. It is a project boat. The interior is gutted and the hull needs to be painted, but as best as I can tell, all of the rigging, sails, and hardware for sailing are there. The boat has a swing keel.

The plan is to go over the exterior in the next few weeks and get it on the water and over the winter redo the cabin.

Here is a site with some of the history of the of Luger boats

"The World's Largest Manufacturer of Kit Boats"

Luger Industries - The Largest Manufacturer of Kit Boats       
Many thousands of Luger boat kits were purchased and assembled in the company's 35-year history.  It's estimated the company sold as many as 100,000 kit boats during its reign.
