Well, I built the hull in 89, I put a bowsprit on in 92, redecked in 97, made a snout in 2000, installed a mast stump and rengineered the front end last year. How old is it?

If you have an older boat (25 years +)  you might be interested in the Classic and Vintage Racing Dinghy Association's rally at Roadford Lake in Devon on 27th -29th August - details at http://www.cvrda.org
