Mahogany carvel planking on steamed oak frames. Traditionally built by Woodnuts, IOW
Hull was stripped and epoxy splined in approx 1995. Caulking was remived and timber splines glued (with WEST epoxy) between planks to form a ridgid structure. Hull was coated with WEST epoxy inside and out and faired. Not only does this result in a high stength stable hull, it also allows the hull to be faired.
Mast – Original single spreader masthead, timber (believed spruce)
Boom – Original, fitted with roller (original) and slab reefing (current), timber (believed Spruce)
Spinnaker boom – Alloy
Main- Quantum 2004
Furling headsail – Quantum 2004
Asymmetric Spinnaker – Quantum 2004 61.96 sqm.
Larger symmetric spinnaker – McWilliam late 90’s.
Note : Quantum are and remain the number one choice for classic as well as modern yachts and have proved their worth to us. Our large spinnaker (affectionately referred to as ‘big yellow’ was cut down from a sail originally used (briefly) on a Corby 35 (which won the round Britain race). Big Yellow suits Leonie well and is relatively flat cut so can be used for reaching as well as running.
All replaced from 2002 onwards
Main and Genoa halyards, outhaul and Genoa sheets in Dyneema
Heavy and light spinnaker sheets/guys c/w Wichard quick release
Garhauer blocks for mainsheet, spinnaker sheets, slab reefing, outhaul and spinnaker boom downhaul added 2008.
Note : Garhauer are manufactured in the US from stainless steel to a deign that is commonly selected for classic boats. These are exceptionally good blocks which both look good and functional well for racing. These blocks were specially imported by the current owners from the USA.
