READER RESTORA­TION

SAIL - - Feedback -

I’m a re­tired shop teacher and my rest­less­ness got me to restor­ing this lit­tle Aqua­cat 18. I found it in a yard in Olympia, Wash­ing­ton full of wa­ter. Now the fun part—fill­ing and paint. Ev­ery­one who has ever sailed at a re­sort has sailed the small Aqua­cat, but you don’t see many of th­ese 18s around. Peo­ple have been irate with me on the phone about its very ex­is­tence, as it’s be­lieved to have to­talled the com­pany in its in­fancy. That said, a re­stored one will be sail­ing this fall in Texas. Wait­ing for when the weather cools!
