New to me SC17  Bottom

  • Long time lurker, first time poster and I originally registered as SC19 but that boat didn't work out. I've been around and sailing Supercats my entire life, my uncle worked for Bill Roberts at the original factory in Jupiter. I didn't know how good I had it growing up around there and sailing on those early 20s. Well, I finally found a SC17 and am working on getting her back in the water.

    There you go ;)
  • Thanks, obviously didn't imbed those correctly.
  • A one time that was my son's boat which came from upstate New York. He put the name "Freedom Cat" and the hull padding after he came to Florida. I am glad to see that you are going to put it back on the water. I also owned one of Bill Roberts boats, a Super Cat 20. A great boat, I still have many pictures of it. I sold the 20 to a sailmaker friend of mine in Canada probably 20 years ago.
  • Enjoy...we are from the same stomping grounds. I grew up next door to the Roberts' on Lake Mangonia sailing a Super Cat 17.

  • Hullflyer, very cool, you must know JJ. The hull padding is coming off, something going on under it on the port hull.

    Saltlife, spent many days on Lake Mangonia. Not sure if it's a good idea to launch at the park off Australian anymore.

  • Congrats. I lived in Jupiter for about 3 years on and off. A buddy in Palm City gave me an SC17 last year. He was friends and neighbors with Bill.

  • I may be developing a problem.

    Another SC17 popped up a few days after I got the first one. I went to look at it today for a parts and it was in pretty good shape and complete. So I bought the whole thing and got two sets of CatTrax. SCORE!

    as long as you have room to park another ... there is no problem :)

    congrats!

    REALLY funny that this is Hullflyer's son's old boat

    The guy I bought Hullflyer's son boat from said Hullflyer is the Godfather of Delray Beach.

    I'm right on the line between Jupiter and Palm Beach Gardens.

    nice!

    My dad lives in Boynton - i have never wanted to sail the Atlantic (again) but it's fun to look at the catamaran all tied up in Delray with my dad as we drive around

    Enjoy !

    reach out if you ever end up in the gulf / tampa side - i can recommend some facilities if needed

    Cool, will do. My wife is from Safety Harbor and we visit friends over there. I've heard stories about the causeway.

    used to be pretty wild and PACKED with catamaran - those days are gone but still a wonderful place to sail
  • I managed to make one good boat out of two. Everything is correctly rigged and ready to go.
