Wow, glad to hear that SNOW WHITE has found a new home. I remember her when she sailed out of Wareham, MA for several years and had many friendly chats with her owner at the time. Always a beautiful boat, and sailed well. On a related note, I remember there used to be a Yankee One-Design moored at Wing's Cove in Marion, quite distinctive (in a "bad" way?) for her bright blue color scheme. Hull, and deck trim were all bright blue, deck was white, with red trim. Boot top was also red. Well ,I guess she was a "patriotic" YANKEE? Anyway, I attached a couple of pics (I may have more) of #14 while she was Snow White.

I would agree that the Yankee On-Design is a "Fin-Keel" design (like the Shields and the Atlantic). the defining detail between this traditional style "fin-keel" and the modern fin-keel is the newer ones would be classified as "Fin-keel, spade rudder" or "Fin-Keel, separate rudder". I guess the Yankee, Shields , and Atlantic could be classified as "Fin-Keel, attached rudder"? But, I think simply "Fin-Keel" is correct in most cases.

Just wanted to bring the Swede 38 to your attention. Not tobe confused with the Sweden Yachts 38, it was designed by Paul Elvstr÷m and  Jan KjŠrulff along very much the same lines as the Aphrodite 101 and Bianca 414. Apparently initially built by Fiskars (Fiskars AB ), but taken over by Helmsman Yachts in 1980. Produced from 1979/80 - 1987.  Some nice photographs at http://boote.de/anzeigen/swede-38

Sorry.  The forum is being attacked by a bunch of new users that SEEM to be Russians or a Russian.  I don't have the level of expertise to know for sure. And, I need to be clear, I have at least 2 Russian friends and I have NOTHING against Russians in general. OR Russian culture or Russian anything. 
Hopefully this will be temporary.  But it's obvious that I need a new software package.  Ideally this would be something like managed vbulletin   But that is probably more than I need and is kind of expensive.
It's sad because I get a  lot of useful information from this platform and I really want to maintain something similar in the future because a lot of people are not so crazy about facebook. I have to admit that I am one of those but I am now in the process of forcing my self to use it

I had a hole in the side of my boat that I filled in with PC-11 marine epoxy. It's ready for paint. I'd like to know how to apply Gel coat paint and if it is necessary to use a primer on the epoxy and existing gel coat that I have sanded to create a bond. The area I need to paint is no bigger than 10 sq inches. Can I buy the primer if needed and gel coat in a spray can or only in brush on cans? Matching the color is another can of worms. Perhaps a auto body shop would have the products I need.
Thanks for your insight.
Don't know about the primer. I don't think gel coat is supposed to be exposed to the air so you cover after you apply.
If you are this finicky, find someone who is a pro.  And a good color match takes experience.  Not much help, I'm afraid and you probably knew all this.

Hello, out there,

I am trying to figure out how tall my mast is (the boat's in the water).  Does anyone know how tall the mast is  on a 1977 C & C 29?  Supposedly they made two rigs and I have what was called the "tall rig."

Thank you for any help you can give me.

You should be able to get it within an inch or 2. You need a 50' tape and day without too much wind.
