"Silmaril" at dock...

Hi!

I'm the owner of the Heritage One Ton that "Hit a tree..."

Her rudder is finished, an exact duplicate to the original (HMMMM I think my yard smelled $$$$ and charged accordingly) I had them put in more robust rudder bushings as well. Everything it super tight and brandy new back there.

I bought her in '01 and have been having a blast working on her and sailing her ever since. (Well, the last two hears "on-the-hard" have been, well, hard...

I may be relocating soon, so I wont put her in until I know where I will be landing.

As far as scantling/loftings are concerned, I contacted Charlie Morgan a few years back and he told me that the fire at Heritage Yachts destroyed all the documentaion. Oh Well.

Hey, if anyone ever needs a new rudder, I am the proud owner of a mold made from an original!

Happy to share any experiances, and doctorsign, as the long standing owner amonst us, what ever you can share would be great!

I know of another H 1-Ton that's down in St. Johns. I sailed with the owner on mine a few years back as well.

Best regards and fair winds,

Rick Dolson
