Description: Spacesailer 18, Akasha Wind. Asking price reduced Feb. 23, 2016. Fairly rare, one of 75 boats built at Missoula, MT, USA, by Laurie Simms under license from Swarbrick & Swarbrick of Australia. This boat is fully serviceable, in good condition, and can be sailed immediately. Spacesailer 18s were overbuilt by design to handle the blustery conditions in the Perth, AU, region. The hull is a very fast, nimble, and stable fin-keel design. Akasha wind tows, launches, and retrieves very well from her custom-built E-Z Loader. She tows well in high crosswinds. Akasha Wind is easy to rig once trailered to the sailing venue. Akasha Wind could be used for overnight/weekend use for 2 adults and a child. I re-built the rudder and added a stronger mounting bracket. I replaced the cockpit drains. The original interior cushions are in usable condition. The cockpit cushions are nearly-new, constructed by me (current owner). Sails consist of a standard main and working jib. There are no integral running lights or wiring. In her first informal race, she placed 24th Place out of 109 boats entered. I taught my niece to sail her in 1-1/2 days. Because Akasha Wind was built with no integral flotation, I calculated and added (what I believe to be sufficient, removable) closed-cell flotation. The motor is a 4-hp. Nissan, 2002 model, with a new carburetor installed in 2013. When servicing the lower unit, it appeared the motor had very few hours on it--I have a record of 4 hours since the new carburetor was installed. I installed a new cooling impeller in 2015, with 0 hours on it since installation. I added some strong backing plates to thru-deck hardware where appropriate. I also designed and added a safety jackline setup with strong d-rings and tubular webbing.

Equipment: 4-hp. Nissan Motor, 2002. Danforth anchor and secondary muchroom anchor. Jackline system. Working Main and Jib.
