Just curious, what does a Golden Hind 31 look like??

Re: Golden Hind 31 Restoration! :)

The UK magazine, Practical Boat Owner, november 2013 issue, has an article on restoring a Golden Hind if you can get a copy.

This is a little confusing. The one I was about to look at was a fiberglass over plywood construction. Is that the way yours is constructed or is it solid fiberglass hull?

kind regards,

Laurent Giles is not the designer. The designer is, Maurice Griffiths.

Here are some links:

Sailboatdata - Golden Hind 31'

WaveTrain - Golden Hind 31'

Susan Crockerton - Golden Hind 31' (Interesting Woman!)

I have stumbled across this thread because, I have seriously been considering purchasing a Golden Hind 31' myself. I have been in e-mail contact today with the seller.
