Hartley TS16 to Cat 5

Post by doyletime » Mar 14th, '18, 10:54

So I'm looking at winding my sailing clock back and getting a TS16, but looking at a lot of the racing ones on the market they seem to be maintained to class rule not cat 5 (or Cat 5 night). As the main event I'd do on it would be mponr each year.

The main thing that has me a bit perplexed is companionway hatches on a wide companionway with the centreboard plate case raised into the entry.

Has anyone done something similar?

Have a look at the gallery at http://hartley-ts.com.au/Forum/ and you'll find examples there.
