Hello there, today I would recommend Iroko for all the structural parts of your boat. It is plantation grown and will out last all the normal Mahogony's etc. You could get away with building in softwood, but you open yourself up to a boat rotting away under you in less than 10 years! Epoxy encapsula...

Sailing qualities?

Hello Keith, there is litle doubt the Eventide, if properly rigged and fitted latest keel etc, will out sail a WW. But the WW will be a lot more comfortable! Neither will be a greyhound to windward, but then gentlemen never go that way! Given a decent breeze they will both show most GRP Family cruis...

Hi Joe, I would guess the hull shape dictates the initial heeling and then the ballast kicks in. I am not sure if a ketch rig will improve that alot. Maybe it is a case of adding more ballast to keep the heeling angle low, or reducing sail earlier! Many of MGs boats were slightly under ballasted, so...

To make it self tacking you might need to move the tack forward to allow room for a boom. If you mount the boom tack or gooseneck fitting about a foot behind the tack of the sail, it will naturally make the sail more full as you let the sheet go, works for me on Fiddler's Green! How large is your ge...

Hello there, the wire that comes from 3/4 up the mast should go to the stemhead, but if there is a very strong attachment place aft of that it could work, though it will limit the foot length of the sail. More importantly, where the wire attaches to the mast there should be a fitting with a pair of ...
