GreenEarth - I am almost finished reading The Saga Of CIMBA, after meeting a niece of the author, near Santa Barbara. As a model builder, I find the schooner an intriguing subject, but of course - no lines, and so far only the one photo on the dustjacket. Suggestions welcome about other material -- and I am happy to reimburse for copies of drawings, photos, etc, if you can send particulars first. Thanks, and all the best with your own classic.

Windships, I don't know how much luck you'll have getting answer from an 8 year old thread. You'd be better served to post some nonsense in the song thread or somewhere so you could PM GreenEarth.

Windships—

I doubt that Greenearth much cares, as his post is almost EIGHT YEARS OLD. Please check dates before replying to dead threads. BTW, GreenEarth hasn't been active on Sailnet in almost eight years... so I doubt you'll get any response, even if you PM him.

Welcome to Sailnet. I'd highly recommend you read this POST to help you get the most out of sailnet

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

You certainly went above and beyond the call of duty here. I can''t thank you enough for all your careful and thoughtful information. It certainly has opened my eyes and perhaps this won''t be the way to go. I too have a real fast schooner with numerous trophies under her belt, plus she is the sistership to "Cimba" from the nautical book "Saga of Cimba." She''s a 1934 staysail schooner out of Nova Scotia by Vernon Langille. Obvoiusly my goal is to keep her integrity. Again, thank you so much. Paula
You have a piece of maritime history ! Do not understimate the significance of that boat. There is a boatbuilding company named Covey Island Boatworks in Nova Scotia. They have some experience working with these craft. it would be worth your while to contact them. Covey Island Boatworks - Custom Yachts for the World Also try asking the people at Heisler's about how best to preserve her. Clarence R. Heisler & Son Ltd., Boat Building, Repair, & Restoration, Mahone Bay, Nova Scotia Please don't let her pick up teredo worms down there in the warm water...

Good Luck

Well - we can't be sure of that...

I hope that they saved that boat.

Thank you to Charlie Cobra and Sailing Dog

Your guidance about old threads, and the suggested Post about getting the most out of Sailnet - most helpful.
