You can view the basic rig dimensions at <http://sailboatdata.com/viewrecord.asp?class_id=1460>. If that isn't good enough I have the original plans for our Robb 35. Where are you located?

In my experience, Cheoy Lees' rigs tend to vary considerably from the published dimensions. You need to measure the actual boat if you need anything even remotely accurate.

I saw your post about shipping your boat to Annapolis. I hate to say this but shipping a Lion across the continent will probably cost half of what the boat could sell for on the east coast. (Most of the east coast boats were ordered for Long Island Sound and so had a tall rig and the optional lead ballast. This makes a west coast boat not as valuable on the east coast.)

If this is a totally wooden version, it will be pretty tough on the fastenings as well. You may end up having to recaulk and refasten when you get here since the trip dries out the planking, which allows the planks to work more and considering that the boat is being bounced and not uniformly supported in that condition it is pretty easy to strain the fastenings.

But that said, welcome to Annapolis. Its a great place to sail.

Jeff

Hey Jeff, I appreciate your concern. I have a firm quote to ship the boat for $5,600. The boat is worth at least $35,000. (It is a Robb, not a Lion- not that it matters) Besides, we love the boat and are not considering resale value as a factor as we plan to own the boat for many many years.

She is the totally wooden version planked in teak and is fastened with silicone bronze. The boat made almost the identical trip in 2004 when the previous owner shipped her out here from New York. I am concerned however about the stress on the hull as she is an old girl that needs a bit of love. I currently work in a boatyard and I have had a marine surveyor and shipwright both look over the hull. They both seem to think she will make the journey just fine.

Never the less, I am still concerned with the issues you bring up and I welcome any recommendations for boatyards in Annapolis for the unload... or yards with wooden boat experience if we end up needing to do any of the repairs you mentioned.
