    The title of this thread encapsulates ALL I know about a yacht I have recently started sailing on.
    Today, during a race, we had an onboard fire. In the batteries box. Extensive damage to what looks like about 10 years of add-ons. When the fire was noticed the battery isolator was operated, but a number of system - Nav eqpt and radios - kept going - - and so did the fire!.
    To cut a long story short, I will be assisting with a rewire job that brings the boat up to a 'good practice' standard

    I have been unable to find any design info or initial fitout info for this boat.
    Can anyone help?
    thanks
    Mark

    How about asking Ed Dubois?A google search should put you on to him and there is nobody likely to have more information.
