M17 #375 - SWEET PEA

Information about and adventures on a Montgomery 17


On April 25, 2009, I purchased Sweet Pea.  She is a 1983 Montgomery 17, hull number 375, built by Jerry Montgomery.

The sail plan is a masthead sloop.  The cabin has a small ‘cubby galley’, v-berth and 1/4 berth.

Lyle Hess states about his design, “I am extremely proud of our Montgomery 17.  [The boat is] fast, able, and comfortable vessel … being stable and extremely closewinded in open waters.”

This site will cover my travel, thoughts and projects playing, sailing and working on this, my second Montgomery sailboat (my first was Scred, an M15).
