a friend from the Reef Warriors blog contacted me to see if I knew anything about this sailboat:
apparently, they have one that has been more or less abandoned near where they sail, and he’s wondering if any one can help figure out more details about it – and maybe where to find some spare parts.
the sailboat is an Invitation class, which with a bit of googling turned up some of the following results:
- there is a Yahoo Message Group for Bombardier Invitation sailboats
- there is a scanned Rigging Manual for the Invitation
my guess is parts would be hard to find. is it similar enough to a Laser? Maybe parts could be sort of interchangeable – and Laser parts would be MUCH easier to find.
anyone else have any comments or tips? I’m not sure how you could find parts, other than maybe getting lucky on ebay or craigslist.
