Hello all,

I just salvaged an old 1971 Dolphin (Hull # 135) and am looking for parts/plans to restore it. I need the Port side cover for the cockpit storage area. Also I need the companionway cover. The rest of the covers and interior boards I can make.

It has been sunk for about a year and is full of mud. Needs total rewire, outboard rebuild, spreader repair (installation), and a lot of TLC and cleaning. Just getting started with the cleanup, it was refloated today.

Thanks for the assistance,
John T.

Good luck with the clean up! Power washer and a sump pump? Mine had 2 feet of water inside for a year and is cleaning up nicely. I've had to replace the subfloor and rebuild the switch panel but everything else survived OK.

Beautiful boats and fair winds!

Hi John
Is your boat the #135, Saber Dance, that is listed on the website Roster?

Hello all,

Been trying to respond to posts without success. Perhaps I have had it all wrong.
Wading out to the boat yesterday I found the storage hatch cover buried in the mud. Maybe I can find the companionway cover the same way.

Thanks for the replies,
John T

Hi Ron,

I sent you an email. Hull # is 135, no name on boat.

Found records show boat has been in TX since 2000 more or less.

Thanks for the interest.
John T.

Hi John
Got your email. Sabre Dance's (#135) page has been updated. Almost certain she is Sabre Dance - I'd like to assume so until we find out different. I'll bet there is an interesting story on how she got to North Texas. She is the 186th Dolphin found to date!
