    os7,

    what am I missing?

    thanks a lot,

    Sorry can't help with the 'popular NZ mono' without a few more clues :) There are many.

    Based on my experiences with a mono TS many years ago. If you have to trail you want a boat that can be quickly rigged and launched (i'd say under 45 minutes) or it won't get used much.

    The L7 is a cool little boat IMO. And the newer Kendrick designs like the 18 and 650. There is a Scarab 22 with modified rig here

    Dick newick is supposedly working on an amateur build swing wing version of the tremolino. You might also be interested in the 21 foot tri here

    For cats Richard Woods Wizard 22 can fold, but I don't know how quickly incomparison with a folding tri.

    When you click on the URL and get the Winzip page --click on "Open" and then "I Agree". You should then get 16 lines of code.
    Ony four of them are good sharp pics. IE:- 1, 2, 3, &4_small.jpg

    Thats all I can help you with I'm afraid. :eek:

    It's a lengthened Farrier 680 - to 7.5m or so, maybe it's 8, I've forgotten. There are asymmetric daggers also in the floats plus the lifting rudders shifted to the slightly lengthened amas. Boat Has had the interior gutted and no (silly) after cabin as per original, instead the cockpit has been shifted aft into the lengthened area. Boat is named Shifty and it goes extremely well. On a mooring it is bow down a little but once crew are aboard, levels out nicely, no dragging stern (as per original).

    Thanks Gary.
    Very interesting indeed. I presume that when the boat is head to wind the tips of both rudders are sufficiently in the water to maintain the tack :?:

    Tacks as fast as a dinghy, oldsailor7. There is always rudder area in water - and it quickly flops over onto the new tack, helped by the ama mounted daggerboards - and there is no problem when head to wind because, although it doesn't look it from the photograph, with the rudders folded aft, they are actually quite deep.

    Looking for dagger board dimensions

    Hi All,

    First post on this thread. I just bought a 24' Bucc, she has been neglected for some time and there are a few items that I was hoping to find some information through this forum. The hulls are fiberglass with a foam core and seem to be in good shape.


    First, the boat did not come with a dagger board. Can anyone share the dimensions and pictures of their board or do you know what the design called for orginally?

    Does anyone have the rigging layout? I am sure I am missing a few items.

    Thanks in advance for any help.

    dagger board con't

    Samnz,
    Thanks for the quick reply. What is the profile of your dagger board? I saw some earlier posts discussing the merits of foils. Do you have any pictures?

    daggerboard

    My board is also updated- 6'10'' overall, 15"
    cord, 1.25" thick and the foil is a modified NACA 63 series 8% cord. It is more board than you need for cruising, but really effective for racing. Both the board and the rudder can really be improved from the original designs. I would like to see some pictures of your fiberglass Buc. Bruce

    HeadHarbor.
    You say your B24 came without a daggerboard, but does the boat have a centreboard box already installed in the hull. :?:

    Oldsailor and BruceB,

    Yes, the boat has a dagger board box installed. Thank you for dimensions of your dagger board, this will be my first project to start. At some point, someone filled the box with expandable foam, reason unknown but likely one of several symptoms of neglect in recent years.

    I believe the sail is numbered 157. The earliest date I can find is a USCG sticker from 1985. I do not know the age of the hull or the builder, but it was last registered in New Hampshire in 2005. The hull is a fiberglass sandwich with some sort of foam core. Everything seems to have been built very light, the amas can not be more than 200 lbs each. The hull and amas do not have hard chines, which is different from some of the pictures I have seen in this post. The amas are supported by straight aluminum beams that have been hacksawed off at the hull. Installation of amas is achieved with a 4' aluminum tube that is inserted into the beam and fasted with 1/2" bolts (seems a little scetchy to me).

    I plan to take soap, water and brush to the boat this weekend. I'll post more pictures then. I really do not fully know what I have and do not have.
