Re: Sagitta 30

OK, these boats were built to "play" in the North Sea, worth re-fitting and sailing anywhere; check your rudder for old repairs, very common on these to get the rudders smacked around in marinas etc. also check the gudgeon straps that secure the rudder, they can get crevice corrosion, easy to have steel shop make new ones, I pulled all my chainplates and made new ones out of titanium, by the way, I have sailed mine in open water with plenty of wind and it is a very intoxicating ride!
