|Copies of the original Kittiwake Construction Manual are now available through the Kittiwake 23 Registry. They are offered at the same price Kenner was getting, $25.00 each, plus $7.00 shipping and handling. To request ordering information click on this button.|
The registry is growing nicely. All the Kittiwakes that were sailing on Lake Hefner in Oklahoma City during the early 70's have been listed. The current status of only a few of these is known. Others around the country have been located thru the internet. A few of these are listed for sale. If you know of any other K-23 owners, please ask them to send their information to be included in the registry. Please send the information on your boat so that the registry can be made as complete as possible. Any other thoughts and ideas you have would be appreciated also. Where do you sail?
It is hoped that this will grow to become a forum where Kittiwake owners can contact each other to share experiences regarding sailing, maintaining and preservation/restoration of Kittiwakes.Click here to send information or ask questions.
