1967 Redline 41 custom mkI
By chance I had the opportunity to meet and talk in length with the owner of a Redline 41 mk I.
It was built in 1967 and has been owned and loved by the original purchaser ever since.
Some major modifications have been done over the years. 12 feet has been added to the mast as well as more ballast was added to the keel. A bowsprit with a custom anchor roller was also added, this moved the forestay forward about a foot and a half. These are the major mods that have been done.
He is going to pull it out of the water in the next few days so I can have a good look at things.
I haven't had a chance to go over any of it yet but does anyone have any experience or better yet has anyone owned one of these beautiful classics.
I know the history of these boats quite well but any other info would be great.
We have three rules;
No bleeding on the sails.
No slobbering on the charts.
