Yup, I remember the heavy center board. Hand-cranked from inside the cabin. Dad bought in new in '82, sold it around '02 or '03.

Guy that bought it restored it. Did a beautiful job. The wood teak, new upholstery on the cabin cushions, made it look like new. Last I heard it was on Lake Monroe in Bloomington, IN.

You might have an extension made for your trailer. We had a 8' for our Spirit28 because it was a deep fin keel. Was a pain because you had to back it to the water edge, than chock it in hitch it than move vehicle and add extension... But it did the job!

Of course we only had to do that every couple of years... Would be a hassle doing that all the time launching and retrieving.

I thought about having the extension added. YES, we won't be taking the boat every trip, just a few special occasions, thankfully, AND the three places likely we'd take it have boat yards or ramps with lots of options like tractor services to launch for you ($10!) or long low ramps 10 lanes wide (Lake Powell).

Thanks!!
