I acquired a plank on frame hull of a pond yacht about 12 years ago which I am now going to try to reinstate. The name is Hilary Ann, built Worksop Notts. in 1947 and I believe it to be either an A Class or a 10 Rater. The dimensions are:- LOA 5' 5", Waterline 4' 4", Draught 10.5", Beam 12", Mast 5', M'sl area 766 sq", F'sl 374 sq".
I have three questions about this model:- Does anybody out there know anything about it? Which class is it likely to be? Can anyone advise me on a fairly hard primer and topcoat
for it which is not too expensive?
Regards to all,
