There is a Ruffian 23 facebook page and several fleets of active racers as well Irish Ruffian Association
The story of the boat is a fun read if you can find it.

Good luck with re-skinning the bottom. I smell some epoxy work in your future.
Cheers.
Thanks I think I will need it, i'm searching for epoxy products already.

I went the other way, picked boat up in Bristol and drove to Edinburgh. I will be sailing the Firth of Forth out of Granton Harbour.

That could explain a lot. Scotsmen are known for their deep pockets so a free boat seems about right! (I'm a bit Scots myself :G)
Found Granton Harbour on google maps. It is practically downtown Edinburgh. Seems quite convenient. I visited Edinburr over 30 years ago. Beautiful place with plenty of water for sailing on the Firth of Forth.

I'm with the rest of the crowd in thinking that epoxy is a good way for re-skinning your boats bum. Gel coat is even nastier stuff to work with BTW as it is a polyester base resin that stinks to high heaven.
I'm not sure what epoxies you will find in Scotland but this website has very good 'use instructions' for their epoxy resin: WEST SYSTEM | Use Guides
It is worth reading even if you use a different brand.
Enjoy!
