This convinces me that my marauder is the worst restoration attempt known to mankind.

I'm failry sure the floorboards are not plywood (we have ply ones in the club boats) I will have a look when I'm there tomorrow.  We definitely thought them worth saving at the time, even though we didn't know what we were saving them for.

I am just outside Cambridge.
the same, but different...

Centreboard is beyond economic repair but not complete repair

She looks old.  What is she?

Why would you want to take the keels off for?

She is a cold moulded National 12, early 1980's I think...... Taking the keels off ? I guess improve speed ?
