Cutter rig for a Senior

Postby John Slevin » Fri February 11th, 2011, 3:31 am

Hello all and probably Chris in particular
My Email enquiry to Chris did not get away so I shall ask here and hope for the best.
Can anyone supply me with the dimensions of the headsails on Shellduck please?
Also for someone who does not like cold water, how does one get on the foredeck
of a Senior when the side decks are so narrow. Mine will be at least 3inches wide
(approx 75mm if you think metric)?
Regards to all

What about trying this for a sail plan?

She is for sale here

http://www.boatsandoutboards.co.uk/view/NPC024?utm_source=AllBoats.com&utm_medium=dynamisch&utm_campaign=AllBoats

And is described as a

Yachting monthly senior 16ft
16Ft double chine two berth cruising yatch with centre plate

Built from plywood in the 1950s by the disigner Kenneth Gibbs
Originally a mast head bermudian sloop, she was newly rigged as a gunter yawl in 2001 with Douglas fir spars and cream terylene sails. A pocket classic in need of some attention including a lowrance x-23 echo sounder and fishsinder
