Hi there nacrazc, are you still looking for a reasonable selling price for your Grumman? A nice example of the dinghy alone (no rig) sold for $500 on Ebay just a few days ago. Amazing for a nearly 50 year old dinghy! Bob

Jim, go to glenL.com and read the free online book, "rigging small boats"

"This book was originally published by Glen-L in 1973. It was reprinted six times, but was eventually discontinued. We have made this book available in response to inquiries from our builders. You are free to print this book for your own use. It cannot be used in any commercial application without written permission from Glen-L.com.


.....introduction

This book is a basic "how-to" guide for rigging modern single masted sailboats up to about 25' in length. Any person building his own small sailboat, buying a new boat, or one who already owns a boat and wants to replace or change the rig on his boat will find this book valuable. We have attempted to write the book so it can be easily understood by both the beginning sailor as well as the "old salts". However, if you are looking for a "how-to-sail" book, or a book on competition "tuning and racing", or a book on "sailing theory," then this is not the book for you. What is here is practical information on basic rigging and how to install it.

Rigging means putting the spars and related equipment in position so the boat is ready for sailing. Rigging also means these items as a functional unit once installed in the boat and made operational. Many terms used herein may sound strange to the beginner and appear to have no relation to the part they describe. Also, many of these terms have no similarity or counterparts to terms used on shore. Nevertheless, they are necessary to the business at hand. Important terms that you should know are initially noted in BOLD type and will be defined where they first appear, as well as in the glossary. Don't try to remember them all once, because after you see them a few times, you'll be able to relate the term to the function, and soon it will become second nature.

The book is arranged in a logical sequence. PART I concerns mainly the definition and function of the various equipment used in rigging. PART II is the practical "how-to" section on rigging sailboats. All illustrations are noted by a "Figure number", the first number listed referring to the chapter. With the basic information presented, we think you will be able to completely outfit and rig your sailboat with ease and confidence. We have purposely limited the scope of this book so as not to overwhelm the beginner, and yet provide useful information to the large majority of small boat sailors; those who sail the modern rigged boats under 25' in length."

Guess I can't post my email address here, so will have to get a couple other posts in .

I have an aluminum dingy by Grumann, but it needs some repair. What happened to yours? I would be interested in buying one again.
