    I am looking for mould offsets for an Albacore. I have tried the class associations and the best they could offer would be to create them from the Rules Book.

    I am not prepared/able to do this.

    Does anyone know where I can obtain a table of offsets?

    I assume you are talking about the Albacore sailing dinghy, a friend of mine has been racing an old one with a degree of success, i believe the design rights are held by the Royal yachting association. There would probably be a good market for new cold moulded hulls but it it is unclear if this would be allowed?
