Credits for this boat reconstruction project are due and I need to start where it all started, with Larry Gonyea from Wisconsin, who sold us this 1977 Melges for $1000 with trailer. This photo was from the boat’s first a-spin hoist in front of the War College on a gybe up the Potomac. Larry asked us to post a photo…so here it is. Great boat, Larry! Thank you.
This is a beautiful I-20 converted from a 1977 Melges M-20. Melges is still making M-20s. This one looks like it got very light use … and was mothballed for a few decades. Blue and white hull is nearly perfect. Check out the cool green non-slip deck. Sails are just a season or two old…very stiff.
