Hello to everyone. I just today received in trade a 12' MFG Challenger sailboat. I have looked in vain over the MFG Brochures on this web site. I have seen the several sailboats, but the Challenger is not listed.
I think it is a cute little sailboat and I will be restoring it this spring to teach my grand kids how to sail in it. It came complete with all the rigging and sail too. It also came with a trailer for it.
Does anyone have any info on this boat. When I can get some good pics of it, I will post them on my webshots page and post the link here.
The plate on the aft port and starboard sides clearly states:
MFG Challenger, I was told by the owner that it was 12', but I have not put a tape on it yet to verify it.
Over the weekend, I received the original paperwork that came with the boat by mail from the man I traded with. It has the rigging and sailing instructions all done up in typed up sheets. There are diagrams for the rigging details etc.
Would there be any interest in having them added to this site for others who might like them in the future. If so, would some one kindly let me know how to get them uploaded so they can be added. I am not the most handy person with a computer.
Hi Tom .... sorry, I have been away for a while. I think that is a great idea but unfortunately I don't know how you would do it. Maybe post your question in the main forum and see if someone has an answer for you. Good Luck.
From what I've seen, most folks would scan the pages into the computer just like you might scan a picture in. From there I think you post the scanned image to a thread in the Library Additions forum. The exact way you scan your documents in will depend on your computer and scanner. If you don't have a scanner, a place like Staples or Kinkos may be able to help but I'm sure they'd charge for the service.
