Re: SJ23 centerboard trunk width




Hey Jack and Hal,

I am now the proud owner of a trailer! I drove down to Kent and bought Art
Brown's old trailer. We pulled it home through a driving rainstorm and
parked it at my house. Art has a new one he bought from Gene Adams I
believe. It looked real great the way he has it set up. But his old one will
do me just fine because I only plan to use it to pull "De Vliegende
Hollander" out for wintering. It will be parked about 300 yards from the
ramp and docks at Shipyard Cove where I will be mooring it. The docking
prices are getting outrageous now in Friday Harbor. Close to $150/month plus
electric. I will only pay $2/foot for dry storage on the trailer and then I
will sublease dock space when other boats are out on cruises during the good
sailing months. It will save me about $1,000 per year I think.

If you need anymore measurements, I can measure mine for you Jack.
