The Rockport Yacht Club has a new to us Sailboat, it's a Harbor 20' March-20-2019
 
  
 
   

 

 This is a beautiful 20' day sailor with room for 6.She is coming to the RYC via club members Jim and Heidi Marmion. Yes they are donating this fine sailboat to our Yacht Club. Big hand and Thank You to Jim & Heidi....!  The idea of such a boat is to give the RYC a method for which to teach adults as well as kids the wonderful sport of sailing. We have chosen this boat for it's ease of sailing as well as it's beautiful lines. The boat was found in Houston, she is a 2011 model in excellent condition.  Even though she is in excellent condition there are a few things we need to do as a club to get her ready to sail.....So we are scheduling a couple work days over the next couple weekends.....
      Saturday March 23rd 9:00 to 12:00
      Saturday March 30th 9:00 to ......
What needs to be done:
1) compound the hull and replace the stripes and boat name.
2) sand the bottom prep for bottom paint (she has a few blisters we will repair)
3) Bottom Paint
4) go over running and standing rigging, replace as needed.
New sails and spinnaker gear are on order for her, we can clean up the old sails for use as well (a good scrubbing).Once she is complete we will keep her in the water at the club. The bridge & board will sorted a plan for how members will be able to sail her responsibly.  We will bring her to the RYC via trailer for the work days. If you have expertise and tools in the areas for which she needs work, (or just want to help and learn) come pitch in to bring this fine Sailboat home to the RYC.  Again.....a Big Hand and Thank You to Jim & Heidi...!
