Thanks for all the help. I am just getting into sailing.
A picture of the boat is here:
... i need 10 posts to post a link, you'll have to click on my username and go to my home page in the contact section ...
It was built, sold bare hull, used as a liveaboard and never registered. There's no id plates or anything. I am trying to get this registered as a home-built now, then fix up a few things. But some day I will sail this boat!
The people I bought this from don't remember the builder (over 30 years ago. i have one lead to follow), but remember it was meant to have a Macroni (Bermuda) Rig. I would need a 65 foot mast or so. That will be fun. Anyways, I don't dare ask if I have the right sails. I'll dig around the net a bit, but might come back for more dumb questions
There were about 20 sailing books on the boat, more reading over the winter.
