Preed, not sure where you're located.. your profile's a bit empty... but:

Here in Vancouver there's a vessel called FanTan, another Colvin originally junk rigged. The owner/builder eventually converted to standard stayed sloop (marconi, not gaff). This involved moving mast location, obviously, but at least with steel that's more easily managed.

She's quite distinctive, red hull/flush deck. They've been cruising the coast extensively for decades. Currently for sale, too, I believe. If there's a Colvin owner's group they may be on it.
