OK, I have done some homework. I have read and then skimmed these posts, learned a couple of new words and will be able to impress my big boat friends. I just bought, however, a sweet little 10' dinghy in an auction. It is not a Minto. It is fiberglas with teak trim. When I unwrapped the wood mast and sail I found a gaff rig. I then noticed a number of brass (bronze) rings, jam cleats and holes scattered throughout. I have found a drawing of a gaff rigged larger dinghy on the internet, but I cannot tell some of the drawn lines are edges or lines (for attaching things). Does anyone know of a source of a rigging diagram for one or more of these boats?

I shall send a photo of the boat when I have cleaned it, oiled it, etc. I would also like to know who built it and its name if any. I heard a rumor during the auction that it was built in England.

Thanks,

Nodiaphoresis
