First post here after purchasing a 1985 17SE
Ive taken her out a couple times. Both times drank a little water and after 2 hours was measurably heavier than the other side.
Pulled her out of the water yesterday.
The dagger boards retract and function great. The wings seem to be solidly in place (one of them is actually stuck on..) with no noticeable cracks around their entrance into the hull or underneath the hull where the receiving pipe might affix to the inside of the hull. Checked a bit around the cross members (holding the mast and rudder assembly) and noticed nothing to out of the ordinary.
Where else might I look to patch a hole? I hope its nothing to serious.
