    Hello, I’m looking at buying a 1964 Sea Sprite 23 in sorry condition.
    Just wondering if the decks, and cockpit are cored on these early boats? If so were they using balsa that early?
    If I buy her I will definatley join the membership.
    Thanks for any help.
    If I do buy it, I will fefin

    Dear Carter, Thank you for posting “JEN SUE” so quickly in the association classifieds. I’ve decided to remove her from the market for the time being. I’ve been busy doing the bright work topsides and having all the chrome re-plated. I thought my marine carpenter would have been available by now but I’m still waiting. Once she is ready I’ll be in touch. I’ve received “quality” responses from the classified add and some perspective buyers want to be notified when she will be going back on the market. Thanks again, Dave McGeoch

    I have a scale halfmodel (fiberglass black) 1 inch to the foot of Seasprite 23 mounted on bright mahogany plank. I made this about 1958 while working at American Boatbuilding in East Greenwich R I. From a mould there. I want to sell it for $200. I also know a lot of early history. If anyone is interested best to call 401 965 5154 for more details. Thanks…. Bob

    Dear Carter,

    Just wanted to thank you for a wonderful evening on Friday – we met many wonderful new friends and look forward to meeting up again in the very near future on the water!

    Thank you also for your suggestion for dinner on Saturday – we went to DeWolf’s Tavern – the food was excellent and the choice was the best! There certainly isn’t anything better than local suggestions for dining and you made a great one!

    Hope to see you again, very soon!

    The new website is just outstanding. Congratulations on a job well done; the care and dedication that went into the project is apparent . And so is
    the talent to deal with these strange computer things which I will always find mysterious and just a bit magical.

    I sent in my dues this afternoon via Paypal and am now proud to be member (in good standing, I trust) .

    I am the owner of Sea Sprite 23 hull number 762, built by CE Ryder in 1982. I’ll be sailing the boat out of Vero beach, Florida
    between the months of October and May. Summers are spent upstate, New York where, sadly I’m forced to downsize a bit to
    my Dyer Dhow. I do sail a good bit during the summer out of Greenport, New York on my sons Catalina 320 which he calls his Winabago with a mast.
    I’m inclined to agree with him but it does get me on the water and some summer cruising in southern New England. This past weekend he and
    his family visited and we had a chance to sail for a few hour in ideal conditions where we were both amazed at the Sprite performance; it was the
    first time I had sailed the boat where there were other boats sailing in company and we could judge her performance. …..very impressive.

    The boat is a bit unusual as it has a tapered mast without jumpers and, even with her Harken furling system, points well, actually much better than
    I would have expected. I just installed a Boomkicker, primarily to support the boom since there is no topping lift, but found it works very nicely to help
    with sail shape and controlling lift.

    I have to be in New York to attend an auction associated with my other “hobby”, the restoration of antique bicycles. The first day finishes up Friday 4/19 in the afternoon so if it’s early enough I might try to drive up for the annual dinner. I would love to meet and talk with some fellow Sea Sprite owners…….we’ll see.

      Thanks for your comments, Dick. sounds like your heart aches in the summertime!! I would be interested to see your boomkicker installation. Anything to help me point better in our racing fleet would be welcomed.

      It would be great to meet you April 19th if all works out and you can make it to Bristol. Keep in touch. Carter

    Carter,
    Thanks so much for your hard work on the website. It looks much more modern now, and I love the photos.
    I’ll be posting some of my used Sea Sprite stuff when I dig it out of the Garage.

    Thanks again,
    Walter
