We have recently become owners of Cariad, I believe hull number 21. Although we live in the Maritimes, the boat, now named Robert Clyde, is on the west coast, BC. Built 1982-3 and well maintained by her previous and only owner. It is a delight to sail, and we are making minor repairs as they become necessary. There were some cosmetic blisters on the hull,below water line, these were repaired prior to our purchase.
Bill Siefert is the man to contact about this type of boat. First, read his book,Offshore Sailing, even if you think you know it all, this will open your eyes to many great ideas. He is glad to help and answers my questions quickly. He runs a consulting business with regards to sailing and his advice is worth the cost.
I will keep up some posts as we get more experience on this lovely boat.
