Delphinus

Greetings

New owner of 1983 Horizon 39 center cockpit ketch "Delphinus". Originally built in 1983 she was finished and commissioned in 1985 by Sam Darah. Her early years were spent in Florida. She was purchased in Clearwater by my seller about 12 years ago and has lived on Lake Huron since then. Plans are to get to know her and update her for the next few years then do the Great Lakes/Caribbean (and maybe farther) thing.

The survey didn't turn up major issues, even though the boat has been on the hard uncovered for the last 5 years or so. The only major issue on the thread appears to have to do with the center board. I asked about checking the board and the pendant-turns out there is no way to check from inside the boat and may be difficult hanging from slings. The main reason for my post is to make contact with the thread as well as with the current holders of the molds so I can get some input on checking the health of the board.
Thanks in advance for all feedback.
