Hey Folks!

I have seen a few posts from a year or so ago regarding folks buying and selling their Turbo Kits in these forums.

I am in need of a kit, and am not interested in paying retail for a new one, as my boat is an 81.

I have a dolphin striker, and a trap wire system. I need the entire kit minus those pieces.

I almost bought a junky 14T on Craigslist just for the kit, but the deal fell through.

Furler, jib blocks, jib support, bridles, forestay, you name it. I have sourced a sail already for $250, but will consider purchasing a nice used one if you have one for less.

Please reply if you're interested in making a deal. email is justindmatthews@gmail.com or just reply to this post.

THANK YOU!

Saw the one on beachcats.com. Their registration system seems to be broken so I cannot signup for an account to contact the fellow selling that kit. I don't really need to purchase the bars, just the furling kit, jib blocks, etc... you know....

I emailed you some pics of what I have forsale, $250. the jib is rough, but the Furler is in great shape with new nylon sleeve, housing and spool. All parts are used.
