Congrats! I'm refinishing one right now and hope to have it ready in a week or so. I think mine is a 73'. Painted to hull, ready to move to the deck.

I've only came across one other person who has one of these, thankfully he was a lot so answer a bunch of questions. Send a picture of your boat if you have one

Here Is my boat. Been sailing mostly keelboats and have not sailed a cb in years. Looking forward to getting back into the water with one.

Looks good. I have a stone horse 23 for cruising and picked this one up to teach the kids and have a more mobile boat for us. I see your deck has a lip around it on the inside, mine is straight, must have had some design changes over the years. I do have the owners manual for a Newport surprise which is very similar if you want it.

I was recently fortunate enough to be given my first sailboat. It is a Skipjack 15 as well. Not sure of year but mine is similar. I like the black hull. I went with that as well!

Mine was missing the centerboard and I had to fabricate a new one. Can someone take some closeups to show my how it is rigged to allow it to be pulled up? Thanks so much! Jeff

Hello All. Just bought a well-used Skipjack 15. Probably could figure it out, but bought the boat out of the water and with all rigging removed, so sure could use a manual or photos to help getting it set up properly. In particular, how the main and jib sheets are set up, and also the centerboard lift and hold-down. Also, also advice or photos of any mast crutch folks have devised -- the trailer has none so it looks like i will need to build my own. Thanks!

Here’s a Skipjack15 my uncle gave to my cousin who then gave it to me. I spent a couple of years refurbishing her. She was in bad shape. The mainsail, some of the hardware, and rudder are new otherwise most everything is original. My father, uncles, and half my cousins were in the USCG hence the new colors. I’ve taken detailed pics of the rigging if anyone wants it.

I've had a Skipjack 15 (Hull #232) sitting in my pasture here on the Chesapeake for years. Bought it with a friend who jumped ship before we could begin the restoration. The hull looks grungy but is solid. The mast, boom, and sails (original Dabbler) are okay. Some standing rigging needs to be replaced. Centerboard looks to be original. Rudder has some damage but hardware is solid. The trailer has too much rust to ever go on the road. I've been thinking about donating to the local NPR station but haven't yet. Any suggestions from this group regarding disposition or value would be appreciated.
I have pictures, but they are too large to upload to the server.
