ham... good info, and welcome to Sailnet.
Do try to keep an eye on the post dates as you browse the forums here.. Topknott posted that in 2001, and as it happens hasn't logged on since 2006!
No worries, though.. just a headsup.
Even though the question was asked many years ago, many other people search the web for answers. There are few things worse than searching with a question only to find someone else had the question and it was never answered. Especially in this case where there were only a few boats ever made.
So, I would much rather see someone answer a 20 year old question, then have it sit for eternity unaswered and on the list when someone else is researching.
