Could not agree more Chris.

Soon we will be able to let restorers and owners see almost every one of our boats drawings! As it should be!

Hello Paul, never worked on a Senior that way, but I have added a skeg to a Lysander with good results, years ago. The boat tended to tilt back on it's keels if you put too much weight aft, so the owner asked me to help. We made up a galvanised Steel skeg, through bolted under the stern, just in fro...

Hi Michael. Do we know what the Antifouling is? You say it is good order, (on the phone), no cracks or flakes. If it is in good order, and a copper based paint, then a rub over with a rag with suitable thinners for it should enable a coat of similar paint over the top. Otherwise you might have to us...

She has not been back in the water since and the anti fouling seems to be in good order with no cracking or peeling. I am going to strip the rest of the hull to repa...

The SS forestay inside the ali extrusion seems a bit stretched. i.e. the ss 'pin' at the top end is poking out a bit, almost exposing the ss rigging to the top edge.
