C13 Pirateer

I am in the process of purchasing a C13 Pirateer. (I think that is what it is - I can't find any specific markings other than "Chrysler" but it looks very much like some of the photos you have posted on this site - thank you for that!).

The boat in question has no sails with it (according to seller mice had gotten into the storage area and into the the sail bag). I need help in locating used sails or recommendations for a quality (but reasonably priced) sail making resource/business.

Help!! Any other helpful hints or information on rigging or anything related to a C-13 would be awesome at well.

I have limited experience sailing (grew up experiencing a few sailing trips on 23 to 32 foot Tanzers, Odays, etc.. and have owned and sailed a pair of mini- sunfish on a small inland lake in Michigan. I live on Lake Huron (thumb on Michigan) and plan on sailing the C13 along the coastal waters on Saginaw Bay/Lake Huron.

Thanks for any insights and information!

Welcome aboard ! As far as the rigging part goes (and assuming you haven't already) look under the main page then 'Documentation' for a bit of info.

Thanks for the welcome. Do you have any ideas about finding sails for this boat? (either used or new)......a good sail making resources that you've used before that is quality but reasonably priced?
