Easier to do via a photo sharing site like photobucket or Flickr then try and upload directly in most cases.

Re: Got a plastic classic?

Here's my plastic classic, 1964 Rhodes Reliant built by Cheoy Lee.

Work I've done: New compression posts, couple new keel bolts, new rudder post (detachable from rudder on these boats! Tapered/keyed fitting), steering pedestal top-end rebuilt, exhaust system rebuilt, bilge bulkheads replaced, with new tabbing (embedded fiberglass plate into them so they are 3/8" thick tabs, then 4200 + bolted the bulkheads to that beefy tabbing), new aluminum fuel tank, new prop shaft, stern bearing house (+bearing), and stern tube... (Figured 50 years for an invisible piece of bronze hidden in some wood was good enough service life.) Some chainplates replaced, more to come, some standing rigging replaced, more to come... Added a bimini... Oh, and varnishing, and varnishing, and sanding, and varnishing, and scraping, and varnishing.

Work I'm doing this winter: Removed fasteners and and pulled teak from deck, for the most part they came up in one piece, boring out + plugging the old fastener holes, cutting new rabbets, repairing some core in the fiberglass deck underneath, sealing the ~1000 or so fastener holes in the deck, covering with a new layer of glass to be sure, and reapplying the old wood (still a good 3/8" thick) with TDS bonding epoxy. Also having a new aluminum main mast made by Klacko in Canada. And varnishing. and sanding, and varnishing, and scraping, and varnishing.

One of these days I'll get to improving the creature comforts!

Yep...she's an Alberg. Could be the twin sister to our first boat, a Cape Dory Typhoon. The only differences were in the finishing details. Lovely boat, and boy do they sail nice.

Pretty boat. Funny you should mention the "hull being altered to make the CR-38." We owned that very first 38. She was sold as a kit boat to a young couple named Ben and Helen Harrison. They had the hull and deck hauled to a piece of land in the mountains in Costa Rica and finished her out there. They have just released a book about it called Sailing Down the Mountain. They wanted an aft cockpit and so Bill Crealock designed a "bustle" on the back of the Tiburon to make it work, and the 38 was born. This was in 1975. They called that hull #0. The next one built was called hull #1. Our Cabo started life as La Dulce Mujer Pintada, but we renamed her Second Wind. I'll try to dig up a picture.

Wow....what a beauty. And it sounds like you are doing everything needed to keep her that way for many years to come. I just love seeing boats like this one out on the water. They don't just turn heads, they break necks.

Re: Got a plastic classic?

My Plastic Classic: Douglas 32, Built in London Ontario Canada in 1973 ( a beefier Alberg 30 ).

The Douglas 31 was Ted Brewer's first design after he left Bill Luder's shipyard In 1967 and established Brewer, Wallstrom & Associates, Inc. in Brooklin, Maine. The design is based on concepts Ted formed while working and sailing with Bill Luders on STORM and the Luders 33. Ted's partner, Bob Wallstrom subsequently founded the Yacht Design Institute, and is now part of the Maine Maritime Academy at Castine Maine."

The design was heavily influenced by Cruising Club of America (CCA) offshore racing rules. As such, they have narrow beams, a relatively heavy displacement, moderate ballast and the graceful overhangs that were prevalent among boats of the era. The result is a beautiful, sea-kindly boat that is initially tender, but which firms up once heeled. Heeling provides more hull in the water, and this additional waterline results in greater speed. She is given high marks for seaworthiness, has made several successful ocean crossings, and has weathered big storms.

Jeffrey White of North American Fibreglas Mouldings Ltd. in London, Ontario acquired at least one set of Douglas 31 hull and deck molds, and modified them with a reverse transom designed by Ted Brewer to create the Douglas 32.

There were about 80 to 155 of these built by multiple manufacturers, I have owned two of them.

The first owners of Kemana sailed it for 7 years in the Pacific, visiting Hawaii, Fuji, New Zealand, Tasmania, Indonesia, bringing it back to Canada through the Panama, and up the east coast to Kingston.

Sailboat Data Link: DOUGLAS 31/32 sailboat specifications and details on sailboatdata.com

Sadly, the Douglas Owners site has disappeared off the internet, and can only be seen in the way back machine: https://web.archive.org/web/20150304...m/index-2.html
If any Douglas owners are interested, I can work on making another web site with the contents of the old site ( I saved all the pages back in 2014 ).

I have other Douglas Owner member photos of 'STATION OMEGA', 'Argonauta', 'BRIGSTAR II', 'Aderyn Môr', 'FOREPLAY', 'SNOWBIRD V', 'WHISKY RUN', 'NAIAD IV', 'Little Sister', 'JOSH', 'SEAQUEST', 'WILDHEART', 'TARA', 'Ariel', 'Solong', 'Rebel'.

Re: Got a plastic classic?

Great thread. In my opinion, the CCA rule boats were the high water mark of yacht design. Alden, Rhodes, Stephens, Hunt and many others. Their boats...so beautiful...
