Hello all,

A friend has recently bought and is refurbishing an 18ft Blackwater Sloop, built in Maldon in 1959.

She's going to need rigging soon, and as a Bermuda rig we aren't expecting too much of challenge. However, I was wondering if anyone has any experience with any quirks or problems that we are likely to encounter!

Thanks very much!

Four of them in Shipways yard, Maldon. Behind Marinestore. Might be worth a look? I think one of them belongs to Mr Selby of PBO fame.

Thanks for the reply.
I'm pleasantly surprised that there are still so many of these around.
We'll go and take a look if we get stuck.
