Hi all. I have an old interlace from the 30’s that I’m trying to put back together. I’m curious of whether anyone has any resources as to the proper applications. From what I can see it had a canvas deck. If anyone has any idea ast to the whereabouts of any pictures, videos, or websites it would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!Image attachment

Maybe Terry K can help?

What number?

Where do you live? I'd like to talk to you about your lnterlake.

I live in Cleveland. She is hull no. 47

Yankee, it was Huntley’s talk to Bryan or Brad

I have an original wooden mast in excellent shape stored indoors.

According to the records I have Interlake #47 was originally owned by John Wager. It was then sold to the Huntleys and in 1987 sold to Tom Cramer. Possibly, Bryan Huntley might have more information on the boat. P. S. Virtually all the early wood Interlake decks were covered in canvas - especially if they were painted. Mike Muhn

It's been said that when power boating it's about the destination, and when sailing it's about the journey. NCSS bets you'll agree that the company holds true for both. ... See MoreSee Less

Use a powerboat to get somewhere when on a sailboat you're already there🤓

Perfect day of racing at North Cape for the Fall Blowout. John Greiner never disappoints!! Preliminary results: 1. Skip Dieball, 2. Tom Marriott, 3. Ron Gall, 4. Bryan Bradley, 5. Bob Bradley, 6. Sam Logan

At times it was as if Skip was racing by himself. Congrats Skip and family!!

Beautiful

Thank you for posting this

Well sometimes when he was driving and flying the spinnaker too - while I was getting snacks and Max was busy asking his 100 question - he technically was sailing by himself.

Looking for some help I want to change the jib sheets to 2:1 what is the best size and length of the jib sheets ... See MoreSee Less

Unless there is a crew’s strength issue, or a desire for more incremental adjustments, the Interlake jib doesn’t need a 2:1. Nonetheless, I’d keep the diameter bigger than needed for the “hand”. 3/8 for the smallest? I’m curious as to what others recommend.

Joe & Amy, you can take a look at my set up. I have both and cut mine a bit short.

CORRECTED results with DNS and DNF scored properly.

No wind at Mohican.... lake was quiet today.

Awesome.

We had a great time sailing 1391 for the first time

Trying to figure out some of the rigging on my Interlake. I’ve seen some picture of rigging but would like more detail. Mostly looking for pics of the traveler set up. Main sheet setup. Cunningham or down haul. Also what do you guys normally do with the topping lift when sailing. Any pics and advice would be appreciated. Thanks. ... See MoreSee Less

I’d appreciate this information as well.

What club do you belong to. It might be easier to look at nearby boats that have similar decks to yours

Well it is official picking up boat 1391 could not be happier. Thanks to all the Interlake nation for your help and information. Looking forward to seeing and meeting everyone. Our first regatta will be the Chiefs on Oct 17. Hope to see lots of boats there ... See MoreSee Less

Have a nice one, factory rebuild new deck by Kilpatrick, Omni galvanized trailer. PM me or send friend request. LaSalle, Mich.

I have Hull 1390 and would be interested in selling. Boat was factory new deck a few years ago. In good shape with good sails and some older sails too. Old trailer but all safety stuff replaced (coupler, wheel bearings, wheels and new tires, wiring & lights replaced, jack stand etc). $5,000. Columbus, OH

Hull number 1002, well kept up shortened boom. Looking for 1300, grand rapids ohio

I would like to find out if hull numbers #326 and #562 are still sailing. ... See MoreSee Less

562 has been sailing on Western Lake Erie since it was rehabbed in mid ‘90s.

What about #932 or #1212...my mom’s first two Interlakes. Any idea who has those boats?

I’ve got 339 with dah boys Tom Crowly Tom Thanisiu and a cased of thousand ..

Can anyone tell me the best way to check for water damage around the centerboard trunk? ... See MoreSee Less

Comment on Facebook

Easy check would be to push up against the trunk with hands. If it flexes, most likely have some damage. The other portion is to make a test cut on the gel coat and fiber glass to expose a piece of the wood. Downside is you will have to reglass and gel coat

As of today... the Snowball is on!
We will be following US Sailing's guidelines on regattas during this time. The most significant restriction will be the 50 mile radius limit. More details to come, but plan on Buckeye Lake fun on October 10!

Our family recently purchased Interlake #635 after my 10 year old daughter was unable to attend another week of sailing camp this summer due to coronavirus restrictions. We figured we would jump in the deep end and learn to sail as a family. We have joined a local club, Leatherlips Yacht Club, that has an active Interlake fleet with weekly racing on Sunday’s. We have been very fortunate to have several club members offer their time and knowledge to get us up and running safely.

If anyone happens to know the history of this boat, we would love to hear it. We purchased it from a family in Lima, Ohio that used it as a daysailor and I don’t believe they were members of any club. However, there were Interlake class association stickers on the tea some from the mid ‘80s.

Additionally, we are looking for a proper set of battens for a mainsail as neither set of sails that came with the boat included mainsail battens.

Thanks!

Check with Greiner sails in Toledo for the battens. They made the OEM sails in the 1970-80's and still going strong.

Call Customflex 419-349-6109

Jim Lodico Do you know anything about this boat?

I’ve got an old main with battens in it if you’d like the sail

What color is the hull? There were a number of Interlakes from Lima area sailing at Indian Lake in the 80s. My family had #624 (I think) which we first sailed at Findlay reservoir and then Indian Lake. Sold it when we bought 1222 in the early 80s. Don’t know what happened to either boat.

I believe Mara Tudor Ward is a member at Leatherlips. We both sailed Interlakes at Indian Lake as kids. She may recognize it.

Please call Terry At 4193496109

Welcome to the Interlake class!! You won’t find a friendlier and more helpful group of people.

Just for posterity, I misstated our boat # above. Our new (old) boat is #625. Looks like it may have been Jim Lordico’s boat from Indian Lake.

Was a good day. Picked up 2 lasers when 23 & 30 joined. We traveled together all the way to Jolly Rogers. Picked up a sunfish as we got off the freeway. Sailboat parade to the club!
