The founder of Nautor Mr. Pekka Koskenkylš manufactured three 40m sloops in early nineties but they are not mentioned on your database. There were three GRP mouded hulls made with different interiors designed by Pekka Koskenkylš himself. Here a couple of links:

I have written a work of fiction set on Loch Lomond in Scotland. A part of the story is that my hero builds a GREAT PELICAN 16' sailboat, and I want to illustrate one on the book cover.  My intention is not to use a photograph directly, but to use it as a base for a sketch/watercolour, but I am worried about breaching somebody's copyright.  I have found what I am looking for on the web, but there are no details of who took the shot, or whether the image is royalty free.  The image shows a 3/4 shot, sailing from right to left towards the viewer, with a single sailor wearing some kind of hat.  I don't seem to be able to include the image with this email. Can someone help?

I have access to a Loos #2 which seems to be the correct gauge for the cable thickness...  I have also come to find out that I think it was 1974 ???? before all manufacturers were required to place hull plates or hull stamps into new boats ????  Thoughts anyone?

I just purchased a Pearson 10 meter-with a Yanmar 20 eng.  I want to install a 3 bladed prop for more power if needed in certain situations. I don`t race so losing a small amount of headway is not a factor here. Any ideas or comments on what I am trying to accomplish ?  I just down sized from a Pearson 424 I owned for 11 years so I`m used to a Westerbeke 60.  Thanks for your input.

Prop sizing is really complicated stuff. Have you have looked over at boatdesign.net?

Ballast for Sunfast 31, Sun Odyssey 31, Sunlight 30/31 were wrong (and impossible). Thanks for catching it.
Now corrected.
I'm not seeing the error you describe for FIRST 10R, though I did adjust the disp. number to what Farr design says.
Very helpful.

The Marshall 22 was first produced in 1965 according to the first article at http://www.marshallcat.com/html/articles.html.  (My own Marshall is a 1968, hull no. 23.)

The current entry in the sailboat data section says it started in 1968.

Thank you.  Record edited.
