so ive stumbled upon a W42 (long neglected bare hull/deck and nothing else) that im considering :

1) converting to rear cockpit, either with salvaged intact W43 parts or sawzall/glass over ply core custom refit. (yes, i know its a huge job)

2) shipping a schooner rig.

3) live aboard and cruise indefinitely.

and so here i am, looking for insight/experience/drawings/possible sources for parts etc.


thanks in advance

rob



Rob: I've posted quite a few W43 scans of original construction drawing in the Westsail Vessel Info > Members only page. Bud also provided a sketch of a W43 Pilot House version that looks very interesting but was never built.

I would also recommend the following bloq http://westsail42.blogspot.com/ where Robert is building up a W42 in fine style.

WOA members Greg Johnson and Alan Johnson (not related) are each building up a from almost bare hulls a W32 and a K32 here in California.

LeFiell is still making masts from the original WS32 molds in 2007 as I purchased a new mast for Pygmalion W32.

I think most of the members are in shock thinking of all the work you have ahead of you!

You might repost in the In the Yard forum...
