I know this is quite specific, but does anyone know of any good old boats pre 1970 with an LOA of less than 30 feet, designed by sparkman Stevens?

I own the Morgan 462 ketch with HIN MRY27021M79L-462. It has a build year of 1979. I also have the original Bill of Sale, which is dated in 1979. Please update the First Built field for http://sailboatdata.com/viewrecord.asp?class_id=2373.

Additionally, this boat does NOT have a Sheel Keel.

Hello,

We just recently purchased our first sailboat--a 1983 Hunter 34. It has a broken mast step plate that we need to replace. We are trying to identify the model number of the Kenyon mast associated with this boat. Any ideas?

Thanks for the help!

There us a company  called RigRite that has all information about Kenyon Spars.
I have done business with them but this is not an endorsement.  I think it's rigrite.com. The current builder of the USA Hunters has a lot of the original documentation.

Annaki appears to be a spam bot. Randy hasn't been around to moderate the spam that gets posted here. "XRumer" (their signature link) is a software for spamming forums.

I'm sure Randy will crack down on that when he's feeling better.

Thank you Mat.  yup.  he's gone.

I am attempting to verify that this hull wass made by Lippincott around 1958?  It's wood, spruce spars, 7 stay, sloop rig.  In 1962 it was owned by a person in Hackensack NJ.  This information came from the 1962 handbook of the Comet Class Yacht Racing Association Inc.  I bought from a person in Little Sodus Bay NY in 2007.  Any body know any thing?

Did you try the comet class association?

There is a B&W photo of a Pearson 10M on the page for that model. This photo is very unusual in that the boat appears to have a staysail set on an inner forestay, or Solent stay, something that was not standard and was probably a retrofit?  Or did some boats come from the factory with this? Also somewhat unusual in that the boat is flying an asymmetrical spinnaker instead of the original symmetrical.

Do you have any information on the particular boat in the photo, and/or the owner?  I'm interested because I would like to install a solent stay or staysail stay on my 10M and would like to learn details of how it was done.

Thank you.

Pretty sure this photo is from original brochure. I don't think this a really an assym.  You just can't see the pole. A spinnaker of this type was called a star cut, simply a very flat symetrical spinnaker with verticle/radial panels. 
To fly a jib like you see in this photo you could just mount a pad eye with a substantial backing plate. It looks like the luff is being tensioned on its own wire or rope. and is set from the standard masthead halyard.  If you planned on sailing the boat upwind like a cutter.  Than you would need something more substantial.
There used to be a Pearson 10M group around somewhere.   try searching.
