invitation?

a friend from the Reef Warriors blog contacted me to see if I knew anything about this sailboat:

invitation

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:

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.

    Bombardier was a large Canadian conglomerate that also built jetskis and snowmobiles. The sailboat line wasn’t in production long. You are right. Most parts can be substituted or rebuilt except for the mast which may have been proprietary.
