I''m interested in "meeting" anybody who owns/ has owned/ wants to own a CT41... in fact anybody with ANY information about the CT41, especially if anybody has pictures to share. My CT can be seen at "fmclean".
I am in the process of rebuilding a "Sea Tiger 41" Same hull as the CT 41. Its hull #103 and has been in my family since 1972. Modifications include new cabin top, virtually an exact replica of the original. Built off of a male plug, out of balsa core and fiberglass. New bow platform. all stainless steel, with a 3" ss tube on the centerline. Looks similar to original. I am in the process off finishing the cockpit. I extended the footwell forward and added to the width. Chainplates are being moved outboard. (with that keel the change in sheeting angle would not hurt pointing ability). I have also added a windward staysail but have never sailed the boat with it. Hopefully it will improve windward sailing ability in heavier air. New aluminum spars sit next to her, but have never been up. Hull has been planned below the waterline. No blister problem but the gel coat was old and cracked and I wanted to dry the moisture out of the hull. I will expoxy coat in the spring. A new rudder is in process. The old one was waterlogged and worm damaged. New one is klegacell and fiberglass over a SS shaft and frame. Perkins 4-107 Diesal has been rebuilt. I will rebuild transmission before the weather gets warm. Out of room for now but I am interested in what you have done. Boat name is JeanMarie and was in St Pete, Fl for most of its life. It now sits in a field in NC (near Charlotte) with a pole barn roof over it while I get her back in shape.
