Folkboat USA 116 is Available for Charter

Folkboat USA 116 - Emma - is available for qualified applicants to charter. Since 2005 I have been working on this boat to get it race ready and serviceable for someone interested in getting into the Folkboat fleet for a minimal financial investment. Emma has a new mast, running rigging(05, forestay (07), mainsheet system, new bottom paint (April 07) and new tiller and extension, plus many other subtle details.
Prospective charter costs include slip fees, bottom diving and minor maintenance. Annual mast care and bottom prep can be split with owner. Regular racing season 6 month contract and/or mid-winter racing contract available.
There are two main and job sails on board, but a serious racer knows that new sails are a must each season. Insurance must be provided and anything damaged or broken must be replaced. Emma was the winning boat in the 1997 SF Cup and has had a solid race record.
If you've ever been interested in racing Folkboats but weren't sure if you wanted to make that huge financial investment, this may be the opportunity you've been looking for. It's all the fun of sailing a boat without the continued burden of owning one.
Folkboats race in the most amazing setting with the best racing venues in the world. The slip is 5 minutes from the city front where most of the racing occurs. The dock has many Knarr and Folkboat sailors so advice on wind and tides is always available.
