Title: Who or what am I..
Post by: The long Build on September 14, 2011, 09:34:21 PM
I have been asked by a fellow member of our club if anyone here knows anything about this Yacht he has picked up..these are some of the questions he has.

Approx Year of Manufacturer.. Possible Name.

Sketch of shroud rigging

Height of mast & sail material

Sketch of sails pos dimensions how are sails fastened to mast .

Is the Rudder mechanism correct

What is the bow arrangement.

Picture 1 shows some of the details of the boat

I did find this on the auction site when looking for something else but although similar there appear to be differences.

Hello,

 As I told the owner, the boat is circa 1925/30, a Pond Yacht, possibly commercially made.
Steering by lines from the Rudder to the Main Sail.
Mast height same as Hull length, Sloop rigged.
No indentity marks on the hull.

A case of build it and see what heppens !!.

John.
