Re: Past builder of Eventide.

Hi Jim, Just in case we dont have Kittiwake listed under that name, can you remember the sail number? or approximately when you built and/or sold her, it may just help John when he gets around to looking her up in our records.

Do you want a measurement from the bottom of the keel(s) to the top of the coachroof? if so that should be easy to calculate from the drawings, and I know we have a set of Riptide drawings becau...
