Listing Detail Tabs

Built in 1981at Christchurch Polytec.
At the end of the build we all did a painting course and completed the boats.This was registered and I have the original new sail and rigging.The only jobs to do are the fitting of the tiller etc ,somewhere I have the brackets etc.But at this time it includes :the hull,tiller/tiller mount,rudder.centre board,mast,sail pole(with ply yock)The metal fittings and sail are somewhere but are NOT included at this stage.
This boat has been to South Canterbury and back to Christchurch to rest.It was built for me(too small now.) my kids(all 4 did other sports)my grandchildren(Perth is a bit too far to sail to and the local one does other stuff).he beast is registered and somewhere the papers are with the rigging fittings,BUT I did carve the number into the keel so it should be retreivable.It has evidence of the occasional move but the quake bumps have been kind and somewhere is a pot of the original paint used.I have not sailed it yet but I do know that when I cleaned it once the water stayed inside the hull so its water tight from the inside..Sad to say goodbye after 36years but all good things come to an end and my days are best spent in the fizz boat chasing fish.So if there is a budding Burling out there this could be the beginning.
