Brief History. 10 years ago I crewed mono-hulls. My brother was a member of a yachet club in North GA. so we spend a good portion on the summer on the water. About 1-1/2 years ago something has attracted me to small catamarans. So I started trolling the various sites for info. From sailing kayaks to some Woods designs, I would always turn back to craigslist for H16's but the stars never lined up.
3 months ago my cousin from Pennsicola was in town so I went ahead and told him to find me one of those sweet deals he's known for finding. 2 weeks ago he tells me I'm the proud new owner of an H20. "Sight unseen". Oh yeah and me and my wife are expecting our first baby in a couple months too. $200. It's just money,right?
I'm not so worried about the complexity of the miracle as my brother will be more than willing to commandeer, I mean assist in the learning curve. A new Tramp and running gear can be purchased and installed relatively easy over the "off season". The main sail is kinda pricey so I may have to tap into a used market when I can get the funds available. My 5 Gal glass carboy sailboat fund piggy bank has been slow in developing. My cuz says there is a rudder system but its not in the picture. I plan to get the boat in two weeks.
Anyway, to the heart of the post. This crack at the gudgeon appears to be a straight forwards fix. The port allows for easy access, based on the info I've found online there shouldnt be a bulkhead seperationing the two. Is there??? I just wanted to share my excitement and hopefully not get the wind taken from my sails but I welcome all opinions.
Thanks in advance
