Buying a Wayfarer
www.wayfarer.org.uk is the best website, if this indeed is the wayfarer you are referring to.
I had an ''83 for 10 years. It was equipped with a 45'' genoa and the 95'' main with a reef point. I added a 32'' storm jib. I used it to boatcamp on big lakes, it holds 3 adults no problem, forgiving, stable and fast enough but more seaworthy than fast.
the ''68''s were plywood I think. Check out the centreboard pivot pin for wear, the rubber gaskets for watertightness. The double hulls were prone to humping with freeze-thaw cycles when water was trapped in between.
