Re: My boat!!! (part 2)

Congratulations, Those are very nice boats. I had use of one when I lived in Savannah Georgia. I traded use of the boat for doing maintenance and teaching the owner to sail better. The boat sailed very well as I recall. The only thing I did not like is that the mainsheet attaches directly to the backstay. That fitting broke while we were sailing and it was hard to even jury rig a temporary connection to get home on. But these were amazingly nice boasts for the size and era.
