On the offshore yacht class association link, there are no active posts relating to the Trintella 29.
The seacracker link relates to the trintella 33, and at any rate has no forum.
The last post on the Trintella Yachts website relating to the Trintella 29 was in 2003.
The Van De Stadt Design link has nothing about the Trintella 29 and primarily deals with current designs.
Not sure where to turn at this point. Maybe there just aren't enough them around anymore. I guess I could start up a new group.
I have a trintella 1 (1ft shorter than the 1a and even more rare).
I bought it a year ago with a broken wooden mast
and heavy osmosis
damage. for a price
. I worked more then a year restoring it and building a new wooden mast
I'm still not happy yet. She needs more varnish
on the interior
, a new table. And i have to take teak deck
of and glue it back on and sand it down.
But at least she is sailing again and I love her. What information are you looking for? I have racing
rating calculations and measurements on the original documents and the original yard flyer from the sixties.
There are quite a few left of the 1a model, I know 3 personally in Belgium and there have to be a lot more in the Netherlands.
However the only other model 1 i have ever seen is rotting away at a
shipyard in Flushing
in the Netherlands and for sale
for a ridiculousness price
