Lapworth 36

Looking at a l-36, Was wondering if i could get some advice on L 36, built in early 60's.
Have concern about the wood hull and overall the age, if its a major issue on these boats of that antiquity.


Also any info, what to look for is appreciated!

There are two in the Vancouver BC area... one at a brokerage, for sale and looking well maintained, the other not so much....

Not sure if this record still stands, but the L-36 used to be the 'winningest' design throughout Swiftsure race history.

Here's one you don't want.. very sad.

I am more concerned about the wood, and hull maintenace, i have heard boats that age hull / plank can be rutted and its hard to see except by hearing bilge pump going often., but not sure if the L36 was any better or worst than avg. wooden boats.

I own a 27ft fiberglass boat now and going into a wooden boat i am sure is quite a move

I am trying to decide if its a good decicion, so far every one is discouragin me..!.

Indeed... just came from there today, actually, but the pic is from a couple of years ago.
