    Dennis, this boat is far bigger and heavier than anything I have ever owned, so I can't make any intelligent suggestions.  However, if you go to Members' Area/Directories, you will be able to search for boats of a similar size.  If anything looks like what you are looking for, you could contact the owner and see if they have more information than they have already provided.   You might find Samson of particular interest: a large Ferro boat for which Arne designed a rig, several years ago.

    Hi Dennis,

    How fantastic to see another ferro is about to be turned to junk. :-)

    I am part way through converting a 32ft Samson C-Mist into a JR Sloop.

    For what reasons does your dad seek such a person?

    You have some really knowledgeable people right there in NZ.

    I would love to see pictures of your dad's C-Shanty.

    You can see my Jasmine in the albums on my profile page and email me from there.

    All the best and welcome to the JRA.

    Posted on behalf of my dad. He's building a junk rig. He's looking for contact with a boat designer with junk rig experience. Preferably in new Zealand also anyone in new Zealand have a SABB diesel engine REP?
