New project boat

New boat.

I just got this boat and, while I have some sailing and fiberglass experience, I don't know where to begin.

I believe that she is a classic moth boat.

I'm missing the boom and other parts of the sailing rig. She floats but I do like the weave showing through the paint.

Any suggestions as to what I need for rigging or where to start on the hull work? Or something that I missed from the pictures?

Rather than attach the pictures, I've uploaded an album here on sailnet.

Re: New project boat

You may find the Moth Class History | International Moth US Association interesting. I understand that modern Moth have moved to foiling a la the AC 72's. If you follow the link, go to where are the fleets; it'll provide interesting leads. Since it's a developmental class I'd suspect that used parts are readily available.
