Considering to purchase a cruising yacht like this Transpac 49. Could only find little info on the net. Am sure there is wealth of knowledge out there......
some questions:

Q1 How many were built?
Q2 I have seen only ketches (on the net); were any sloops built as well?
Q3 I see several "Mk2" versions for sale. Was there a "Mk1" and what is the difference?
Q3 What is used for deck core?
Q4 How can one find out if this core is waterlogged, other than by a good surveyor? (teakdeck is still in-situ)
Q5 Has anyone experience with windvane steering on this kind of yacht?
Q6 How does this yacht compare with similar yachts from that era? ie Vagabond 47, various CT models, Hudson 50

Any further information and even trivia is welcome
