Hi David, my boat is on the south coast, I am in Dorset, i am only here for a few more days! my boat is in the water afloat, there is another elizabethan 29 in the yard here on the hard! where you will get to see the real shape! although the older and newer Elizabethans have different shaped rudders made of different materials, some wood some grp encapsulated and some just grp, so you have to look at the hull shape rather than the rudder! i find the most distinctive feature is probably the counter stern!! find some images of this to compare its not like many other boats! think there are 2 E29s on boatshed at the moment if you register with them you will get to see nearly 50 different pictures and angles of each of the boats! i can measure the boom but i dont believe it to be the original, the sail if you have any will have an E and sail number, have you any picture of your boat you could put one on here maybe we can have a look and identify it for you! if your around poole in the next few days and want to have a look give me a call 07814552418 many thanks Clare. p.s also you could look at the E.O.A if you havent already!!

Hi Thestar

I#m currently looking at doing up an old Beister. Would you recommend a steel boat or GRP. I'm looking at gutting her (Lady Blue) and manufacturing new wood bits for the interior. How easy was it to do, can you give me any tips as it seems like you have done alot of these sort of rebuilds. more importantly do you have any pics of your glorious E29 for us to see especially if its broken into stages.

Cheers
Fritz

Lots of pictures send me a PM will give you a dedicated link for the e29 it's a lower case E.
Beister renovation would be Roman so ALL WOOD ...NO grp or steel.
It's easy to do if you know how hence this wonderfull forum where members freely share there knowlage and advice for others.
Have met some boat owners who just dap on some paint and fix loose stuff with gaffer tape... Yet they seem happy Depends on what you really want from a vessel. :-)

Passsage Plan, Plan It. Plot It. Check It. Add Some Bolt Holes ...Now Check It Again.

Beister is actually steel unless you know of wood that holds a magnet. The interior would be good to see from your e29 though. cant you put the pics here so the others could see your work too

Hey Thestar,
Sorry about that, yes pre 1960's and when they first started they had wood you are right but most the decent ones are metal whether steel or alloy. unforetunately the original yard closed in the early 80's

Why thank you for spreading your knowledge so freely.
IMHO if you are going to make a statement like "Beister renovation would be Roman so ALL WOOD ...NO grp or steel." , you should make sure your facts are correct!!
Sounds a little different to "As far as I know"
Have an enjoyable evening
Fritz
