Reviving a Dolphin 15 boat

This blog is dedicated to Dolphin 15 that I picked up off of Craigslist in early July..
There are a few web resources that talk about the
Dolphin and I wanted to document what and how much it costs to bring a boat back to life .
The boat came with an impact fracture from the trailer and thats the 1st order of repair.
The boat is meant to be a sail trainer so it doesnt have to be perfect but the hull should keep water on the outside.
The repair priorities are
1st season-hull integrity, used sail, trailer integrity.
2nd season-newer sail.
So far the most expensive component looming is the trailer integrity..
The list reads as follows:- axle, springs lights, bunk risers..
even with a free trailer .. all of the running and load bearing gear will have to be replaced.
