Great suggestion John. I move one of us here write a set of class rules and post it here. A web site would also be cool. Maybe a Yahoo groups site?? Lets go for it.
Bluefish, where are you located again?? Ryan

I'm in North Marin co. Bel Marin Keys. Sorry for the late reply. I have been making a new boat, a RG65. Also have done more to the Vela. I will send pix soon.

Ahoy Again,

I am going to draft some possible Class By-Laws this next week. They will include a differentiation between "Box Stock" and modified which I hope all will agree with.

Any ideas? Please forward to me at johnhsuper@att.net

Hi, what size and test weight interlock swivel snaps are you using on the rigging for this boat? I need to get some for two of my boats and can't decide on which ones to order. Thank you.

For the stays and shrouds on a meter sized boat. I would like a size and test weight that I need. Thank you.

If I had to guess, I would say 50-70Lb test should work fine. Ryan

I've had to redo a portion of the bows as our new addition decided to gnaw on it while wintering in the conservatory...p38 worked a treat as fillers, my question is should I use an enamel or acrylic paint as I've no idea what the stock paint used was by manufacturer...any thoughts.

bad dog...

Nope, its steel and it rusts. If you have a new one, take the weight apart, and give it a nice heavy coating of primer. Maybe two or three. Should solve the rust problem.
